CyberStrike 2

HOW DO I MOVE MY CYBERPOD?
You move the CyberPod with a joystick, pushing up to move forward and pulling back to move backwards. You can also turn up by pushing left or right on the joystick. The HAT button is located on the top of the joystick, and is used for moving the head or the CyberPod. Push up to look down or pull back to look up. When you push the HAT button left or right you will look in that direction.

HOW DO I MOVE MY TURRET BETTER?
If you’re having problems moving the turret there are a couple of ways you can improve. First center your view, this brings the turret back to the center and allows you o look straight ahead. The second way to improve is to practice, the more you practice, the better you’ll get. Soon you will be running circles around the enemy.

WHAT WEAPONS WILL WORK BEST?
Each weapon has its own strengths and weaknesses. If you are trying to hit a target from far away, a longshot is recommended. If you are going to get in close range, get a shield disrupter and armor piercing weapons. It all really depends on the mission and the player. A more experienced player may choose to make the mission a little more difficult for themselves, where a newbie stocks up and makes sure they don’t get in any bad situations.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DESTROY A CYBERPOD ON MY OWN TEAM?
Well nothing actually, but keep in mind you’re now short a pilot to help you later on in the game. You should try to keep all of your pilots alive – you never know when you might be saved from the heat of battle by one of your pilots.

DO I WIN BY A POINT SYSTEM OR BY BEING THE SOLE SURVIVOR?
There aren’t any Deathmatch type of games where the last man standing wins. When you play you are rewarded points for:

1 – Staying alive
2 – Killing enemies
3 – Controlling power in certain areas.

There are areas that will give the player’s team more points if a team tower is placed in that area. Be careful though, the enemy knows these places too and will be trying to control that area as well.

CAN I TEAM UP WITH ANY OTHER TEAMS?
There are 4 clans available in the multiplayer game. Before you enter an arena you must choose a clan. It is not possible to team up with other clans. However, a normal game is set up with 4 clan, 8 players per clan, giving you the option to get the game up with 2 clans of 16.

IF I AM TRAPPED WHAT DO I DO?
Hopefully you have some teammates that can come and help you, but there are times when you end up with your back to a wall with nowhere to run. Times like these separate an average player from a great player. Here are some options to use when you’re cornered. First, the Jumpjet – it sends your CyberPod flying across the sky landing far away (hopefully) from the enemy. If you aren’t equipped with Jumpjets then the options become limited. Jumping is usually a best bet. Remember the enemy will have a harder time hitting a moving target. So don’t sit still. Jump, run, hover, do anything you can to get away.

SOMETIMES I RUN OUT OF POWER WHEN I AM SHOOTING?
Syren, the world of CyberStrike 2, is heavily power dependent. You should keep in mind where your enemy and towers are. Towers are color coded for your clan. Your towers have a proximity feed around them. The closer that you are to the towers the more power you will receive. Be careful though, the enemy will be trying to disable your power source, so guard those towers.

HOW DO I REPAIR MY CYBERPOD?
You will take damage in the heat of battle and will need to repair. There are two vital areas that can take damage. First is the Hull. The CyberPod Hull is the most important to you because damage could be fatal. Second is your shields. The fastest way to repair your CyberPod is to have a repair module in your module bay. If you have a repair module all you have to do is activate it. It will start a repair process that will hopefully save you. Remember, if possible, get to where the action isn’t heavy while you repair.

WHEN I GET INTO A FIGHT I HAVE TO WAIT TO GET NEW WEAPONS, WHY?
You equip your CyberPod with new modules by ordering them from the Raven. The Raven is a hover aircraft that can sustain harsh environments and deliver the required modules in the middle of battle. Keep in mind that many battles are being fought and the Ravens are very busy keeping everyone supplied. Try to order your modules before the heat of battle; this way you are ready. There will be times you need to order modules in battle, and when that time comes, you better have some backup. This is a dangerous activity that is reserved for veterans that have been in battle before and can manage their modules very effectively. Keep in mind that when your modules are dropped they are fair game for anyone to pick up, including the enemy.
