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 youre 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 youll 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
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 dont
get in any bad situations.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DESTROY A CYBERPOD
ON MY OWN TEAM?
Well nothing actually, but keep in mind youre 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
DO I WIN BY A POINT SYSTEM OR BY
BEING THE SOLE SURVIVOR?
There arent any Deathmatch type of games where the
last man standing wins. When you play you are rewarded points
1 Staying alive
2 Killing enemies
3 Controlling power in certain areas.
There are areas that will give the players 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 youre cornered. First, the Jumpjet
it sends your CyberPod flying across the sky landing far
away (hopefully) from the enemy. If you arent 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 dont sit still. Jump,
run, hover, do anything you can to get away.
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 isnt 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.
