Get Up Close and Personal

Get Up Close and Personal

Take advantage of Shotguns' full potential by engaging enemies in close quarters. Keep your aim on their upper body so as many pellets as possible connect to the target.

Try To Get The High Ground And Shoot Down

Try To Get The High Ground And Shoot Down

Shooting down on an enemy will give you a higher chance of dealing headshot damage to the enemy! Try to get on top of enemies as much as possible!

Grappler Is Present In This Mode

Grappler Is Present In This Mode

Here are some ways you can utilize the Grappler and make the most out of it in this game mode:

Check Out The Grappler Here

Use Grappler And Jetpack Combo

Give yourself the advantage by using the Grappler and Jetpack to move through the terrain. Attack enemies occupying high ground or make a quick escape by swinging from cover to cover.

Use The Grappler To Rush Your Enemy

Using the Grappler to quickly close the gap between you and your enemy may disorient them because of your sudden presence. Use this window to shoot them down while they are panicking!

Don't Be Afraid Of Falling!

Once you get a Jetpack, don't be afraid of falling! Pressing the jump button while fallig will make your fall damage null. But keep eyes on the gauge not to have it overheated.
