Game Mechanics

General

Use the designed controls and the mouse to control your player, weapon and access in-game menus.

Health

Your health is displayed at the top of the HUD (green bar) and directly above your player (green bar). When health is depleted, you will be killed. Depending on the game mode, this may end the current game. 

Health regenerates after 2 seconds without taking any damage. The speed of restoration can be increased through the Recovery perk.

XP & Rank

Your XP ("experience") is a measure of your current ranking progress. It is displayed at the top of the HUD (white bar) in-game and throughout the menus. 

Once you max your XP for your current rank, your rank will increase and recieve several awards; such as newly unlocked weapons, attachments and/or perks. XP is gained through eliminating enemies and completing game mode tasks (such as returning the flag in Capture the Flag or completing a wave in Defender). 

Additionally, gaining kill combos (double-kills, triple-kills, etc.) in rapid succession will gain you XP.

Weapon Class System

Deadswitch II features a weapon class system which allows a customized loadout of weapons, attachments and perks to be saved in a weapon "class". You can have up to 3 custom classes alongside 3 default classes which cannot be edited in any way.

As your rank increases, you will begin to unlock newer and more powerful weapons, more effective and specialized attachments, and a variety of player and weapon perks. 

You can access the Class Editor through the main menu and in-game by pressing C (default) in most game modes.

Reinforcements

You can access the Reinforcements menu in-game by pressing X (default). You can purchase a wide variety of assistance ranging from airdrop crates, allied soliders and advanced air support. Items from the Reinforcements menu are purchased via Credits.

Money & Credits

There are two primary types of currency in Deadswitch II: Money and Credits. 

Money is attached to your profile and will be saved. It is used for purchasing new weapons, attachments and perks fom the Weapon Class System. It can also be gambled through the Bet feature. 

Credits are exclusive to a current game only. Credits will be set to 0 at the beginning of a new game. Both are earned through eliminating enemies and completing objectives.
