You know about the basics of choosing your weapons, but we haven't yet elaborated on some of the more specific features of them. To celebrate the activation of a new weapon in the Pre-Alpha Preview, we've decided to elaborate on some weapons and weapon-types that will be available later!


Jump Tanks has a standard aim style that uses the crosshair, allowing the player to aim wherever they want to fire. Some guns also use "Aim Assist" on the vertical axis, which allows the player to focus more on maneuvering quickly while firing. Further, there are also guns that have a tighter view that is used for "sniper" style weapons, such as Rail Guns etc... These allow for higher accuracy over long distances but with a trade off in awareness around the player.

The final aiming style is "Launched". The type of weapon that uses this aiming style will make things explode. Launched weapons paint a target on the ground that the player can aim. When the player fires their weapon, it will lob the projectile in an arc towards the target. This system allows players to attack while hiding behind cover, but the trade off is in the speed the projectile reaches the target.

Everything Burns!
