SYNTHETIK Tips & Tricks
-Humanoid enemies take extra damage from headshots. If your weapon is slow and precise, take your time and place shots on them. If your weapon isn’t very precise and fires quickly, aim for the head still, spray and pray.
-Enemy fire can hit themselves. When overwhelmed, try to align enemies, so if they try to fire you, they’ll hit themselves, killing them for you and protecting you as well.
-If very useful especially against sniper soldiers/turrets (wait for them to charge on you until late, then quickly hide behind an enemy so they get the fire).
-If you trigger a mortar, just get near it, it’ll lob a mortar at you, go away to avoid its fire, and make it hit itself. You don’t have even to spend bullets on it.
-When facing faced turrets (that have to face you to fire), you can easily go around them if you get near, so they’ll never shoot at you if you keep circling them. If you hold your fire and get too slow, stop firing a little, dash to the side, and keep circling it!
-You can view further away from you when your cursor is near the edges, panning your camera away from the center.
-Just entered a level, and don’t know where the corners of the screen are. Hold TAB or M, and the game will show you where you are in the map of that room, so it’ll be easier to know where to go or where to NOT look for enemies.
-Moving around will greatly reduce the chance of getting hit, but when placing shots, make quick pauses at least to increase your accuracy. Also watch the reticle when doing this – if it gets bigger when you fire, you’d better not hold the trigger, but give more space between each shot.
-When you enter a new room you can trigger events such as timed chests (with the arrow pointing in the direction) or even timed quests (defuse or destroy stuff), but caution, as luring enemies around will probably kill you. Try to move there without being seen by enemies that will seek you, meaning you can trigger mortars (since you’ll be moving around they won’t hit you) or even towers (but carefully, of course), but humanoids will seek you, make noise and gank you.
