Hello, defenders! Since Base Defense has a lot higher game difficulty than previous versions I decided to make a guide to help you get into Base Defense universe.
Let's start with a story.
Yes, Base Defense has it's own story and has nothing in common with the one from Half-Life.
The war of good and evil was interrupted by alien invasion. Demons ran off, angels got back to heaven. Only humans left, surrounded by aliens. Here come 3 characters called defenders. They send all the humans to another realm, which is causing the merger of past and actual times. All events in the game are happening after the merger.
So who are we and where are we?
You choose one of three classes (defenders) which are the main characters of the story and get teleported to battlefield where the game starts.
Now I want to give you some suggestions:
I got a new item! What should I do?
Check your Inventory Menu (it's "i" by default), now it's new, you can pick up more items, compare them and equip the best one.
I see the book floating in the air, I definitely should read it!
No, mate, you don't. It's just suicide if you're not ready enough, so if you see this book:
Don't even think to read it, just turn around and run.
It is so hard, I just can't survive this!
Nope, it's not, it only begins to be hard at 25th wave, when appears a 25% chance to spawn Unique Wave (learn about it in Base Defense Information Pages, Gameplay -> Monsters section). So make some training and you will get better results.
If you really find this completely unplayable hard, then I suggest you to play with your friend (and let's hope he's better in bdef than you :D). The point is: when you die and your friend lives, then finishes current wave, you can respawn in a break, then find your loot. You will lose all your weapon, but as you get your backpack you will get your level, stats and penalized amount of money. So this little green bag is your friend!
Never leave him! That's why: experience you have now and from the backpack doesn't sum. Note: if you have new items in your inventory and pick up your backpack, all these items will be lost, backpack has your old saved inventory and will make it like it was before your death.
That's all, folks! For now at least... Ask your gameplay questions here and I will answer them!
I think about writing next guide about Gargantua fighting, tell me if you need it.

Great mod, really made the traditional Half-life mechanics feel modern in-tune with the Horde-style systems we see in most shooters and stays fun throughout. Alot of balance problems though, most noticeably the AI-pathfinding which is so horrendous at finding players hiding in spots that its game-breaking at times. However with 4 players running around the map proper, its a blast.
