Show off your third-person shooting skills and devastate your enemies in this thrilling MMO shooter game, Shadowgun: Deadzone! Upgrade your weapons and even research new ones to guarantee that you’ll always have an upper-hand advantage over your opponent. There are plenty of useful gadgets as well, such as the deployable sentry turret and radar device that you can purchase and use. Do strive to get to the top positions on the leaderboard as well! That’ll be even more brag-worthy than just a mere kill-death ratio.
As the skill ceiling in Shadowgun: Deadzone can be pretty high, it comes as a relief to have a tutorial that at least teaches you some basic techniques in the game, but do bear in mind that it may not be completely comprehensive. So, you might still need to learn as you go along in this game.
Basically though, most of the controls are the same as any MMO shooter, in addition to a couple of extra controls, like pressing spacebar to roll across the floor or sprinting (not all shooter games have this). Interestingly, there’s also a snap-to-cover feature in this game. To take cover, you just need to move your character really close to a wall or barrier. To get out from cover, you’ll need to do a double tap of the movement keys, depending on which direction you want to move to.
In terms of game modes, Shadowgun: Deadzone provides 2 different modes – deathmatch and zone control (needs at least rank 4). Deathmatch is the usual free-for-all fun, while in zone control, you and your team will need to capture and defend at least 3 out of the 5 capture points on the map. Also, in zone control, both teams have limited number of respawn tickets and once they are gone, every death on your team will become a perma-death... at last until the game ends. Due to this, zone control is definitely the most unique game mode between the 2. However, it is still rather disappointing to see that the game only has 2 modes. On the bright side though, this in turns mean that the developers could still add more unique modes in the future.
For loadouts, well, you mainly get a passive perk, a weapon (your starter submachine gun) and a type of grenade. There are no melee weapons or secondary weapons in this game. However, in place of the melee weapon, the game provides every player with a unique close-quarter combat mechanism that you can use to your advantage, when timed properly of course. In Shadowgun: Deadzone, your character will deal an automatic melee attack when your character moves very close to an opponent who is facing you. If you do that, your enemy will be, hopefully and automatically, knocked down, giving you those vital seconds you need to blow his head off. However, sometimes, you might get unlucky and get stunned instead. Thus, it can be kind of risky, yet rewarding.
There are also plenty of weapons in Shadowgun: Deadzone, including both the common stuff like submachine guns, shotguns, assault rifles, and sniper rifles, as well as some unique weapons, such as energy weapons and rocket launchers. Instead of frag grenades, you can also equip flash bangs, mines or even deployable sentry turret that you can buy from the shop. Besides that, there’s even a radar device that you can buy to detect enemy position and traps, or a jammer that counters the effect of the radar but with a smaller influence radius. You can even get extra perks at the shop too, like bonus item or weapon slot, additional munitions, increased health and armor and others.
If you enjoy some fast-paced third person shooting that is set in the futuristic world without all the hassle of downloads and installs, then Shadowgun: Deadzone is definitely the game you want. Try it out today!
