Game Introduction – Mechs Warfare
Mechs Warfare is a first-person mech battle game created by GAME GRAFT INC. In it, you’ll purchase new mechs, customize the weapons and equipment of your mechs, and battle it out against other players online. Gamezebo’s quick start strategy guide will provide you with detailed images, tips, information, and hints on how to play your best game.
Quick Start Guide
- Mechs Warfare is free to play and can be downloaded by using the “Available On” option at the top of this page.
- When you first start up the game, you’ll run through a brief tutorial of how the game is played. More in-depth lessons will be available on the main menu.
- In the settings, you’ll also be given the option to link your Facebook account.
In the circle arena
- All battles in Mechs Warfare take place in a large, ring-shaped arena. To start the match, you’ll need to swipe up on the screen to activate the mech. From there, your robot will automatically walk left and right around the ring. You can’t control how it maneuvers.
- What you can control is where you’re looking. To do this, you need to tilt your device left, right, down, and up. On the center of your screen, you’ll find a crosshairs. Like most first-person shooters, you’ll simply aim the crosshairs over the enemy and tap either side of the screen to fire the respective weapon.
- There are two buttons on each side of the screen. The fire buttons allow you to fire your equipped weapons. When you have power-ups equipped, you can deploy them using buttons on the same side, as well.
- For some weapons, you’ll see a heat gauge in the center of the screen. The longer you continuously fire your weapon, the more the meter will fill. If it reaches the top, you’ll be unable to use that weapon until the meter is completely empty.
- For other weapons, such as rocket launchers, you’ll receive an ammo gauge. This is a limit of how many shots you get in a single load. You can fire them quickly, but it’s best to line up your shot carefully and not waste ammo.
- The goal of the match is to deplete the health of the opposing mech. Your health bar is shown at the bottom of the screen, while your enemy’s health is shown closer to the top. Matches will rarely last more than 30 seconds.
In the hangar
- On the menu, you have a few buttons at your disposal. The “Hangar” button on the bottom left will let you customize your mechs. The “Fight” button on the bottom right allows you to find an opponent for battle. The bottom features settings, achievements, and leaderboards. The left has messages and friends. “Train” on the right has detailed tutorials. The button above that allows you to search for mechs and weapons. Finally, tapping your name up top allows you to change your username and link your Facebook account.
- When you search for mechs and weapons, you pay a fee with Material X (the premium currency) and you’ll receive an offer which costs more Material X. These offers are only available for a limited time.
- The “Hangar” menu is where you’ll spend most of your time between battles. There are quite a few things to do in the Hangar.
- Clicking the “Armor” button allows you to upgrade the defense for your mechs. To upgrade past certain points, your player level must be high enough or you must be willing to spend enough currencies (credits and Material X).
- Changing your paint job will cost you Material X, but will offer various perks such as boosts in experience points or credits won from battle.
- Owned weapons can be equipped or upgraded in the “left weapon” and “right weapon” menus. Like armor, you’ll sometimes need to meet certain requirements to upgrade weapons.
- Power-ups can be purchased and equipped to each side using the bottom left and right options. Power-ups will cost either credits or Material X and are one-time use items. Once equipped, they can be used in battle by pressing the appropriate button.
- The “Mech Shop” option on the bottom of the hangar screen allows you to purchase new vehicles. If you are not a high enough level, you’ll need to first unlock the mech of your choice with Material X before purchasing it, also using Material X.
Tips and tricks
- When dealing with overheating, a useful tactic is to alternate guns. Fire exclusively with the left gun until the heat gauge is about 75% full, then switch to the right gun until it’s about the same. By the time the right gauge is mostly full, the left gun should be good to go.
- Some players tend to mix and match rockets with machine guns. This is ultimately up to personal preference, but there’s no wrong strategy with weaponry. Just watch your meters and always be attacking.
- Don’t be afraid to stick with Old Rusty, the default mech, for a while. Old Rusty is far from an amazing vehicle, but a few upgrades to armor and weapons will allow it to hold its own in battle, especially when you equip power-ups.
- Remember to log in to claim the daily reward. On top of that, linking Facebook accounts and sharing moments on Facebook net you higher rewards.
