- Today Lead Designer Peter Porai-Koshits
has shared some new video footage of Wheels of Destruction including a weapon guide for PlayStation 3 fans.
To quote: The weapon system in Wheels of Destruction is beautifully familiar yet dynamic and designed to keep the game balanced. Players who know class-based shooters like Unreal Tournament and Team Fortress 2 will instantly feel at home.
The game has four weapon types, each with primary and alternate fire conveniently selectable on the d-pad. This simple and intuitive system actually provides 11 unique ways to decimate opponents.
The Gatling gun is the initial weapon that everyone has from the start of a match. Available to the player throughout, it never runs out of ammo but is relatively weak and imprecise.
However, its alternate fire is tremendously powerful - it's a very short-ranged spread shot shotgun with massive force. Players with great skill and a bit of luck can land an instant kill shot but, most of the time, you're better off hunting for new weapons.
The next gun is almost as accessible and familiar - the rockets and mortar. Like many games, the rocket is pretty straight-forward. It's not necessarily a 'noobtube,' but it doesn't take much strategy to get in a quick kill shot.
