When playing for the first time, the controls won't be as important to your immediate survival, but later on you'll want to see what controls do what, as it will be impacting your late game. Most of the game can be played comfortably with just your mouse, planning your next moves, but if you're a deep player you'll want to figure out the controls to maximize your interaction with the game.

  • Hikensha Icon.jpg Hikensha: Hikensha is a powerful tank style dominating, yet intelligent character.
  • Max Icon.jpg Max O'Kane: Max O'Kane is a simple character armed with a gun with basic support abilities.
  • Gork Icon.jpg Gork "Butcher" Koroser: Gork "Butcher" Koroser is a strong character you can use for tanking and opening doors.
  • Nurse Icon.jpg Nurse Deena Ratchet: Nurse Deena Ratchet is a seemingly very simple character for support and upgrades.
  • Troe Icon.jpg Troe Pekenyo: Troe Pekenyo is a strong character with very low wit yet powerful attack.
  • Autobot Icon.jpg Opbot DV8: Opbot DV8 is a character with very high wit yet very low attack and health.

Each character comes with their own benefits, which will grow as the game develops. Current hero skills, passive skills and some options are limited, but are expected in future patches.

You'll be able to see from the hero menu on the right side the hero panel where you can see stats, choose to level up, heal, or equip items. Also you'll be able to assign skills and other traits for additional combat or building methods.
