Man cannot live by fighting alone. We know that so as you win games and level-up, you will unlock better weapons, higher-tier structures and also visual items that will be used for customizing your character(s). Plenty of weapons, structures, characters, hats and other items to unlock and choose from will make sure that you will enjoy time spent in battles as much as your returns to your base.
  • Level-up to unlock more and better gear
  • Win games to obtain items for visual customization of your character
  • Choose any of characters, its clothes, headgear, face accessories, armor parts and knife skin

War, war never cha... Well, it does change. It gets more and more destructive until the moment when there is no one left to fight, or live. Nuclear holocaust decimated human population and most of the survivors returned to more primitive ways of living, attacking already quite endangered remnants of human civilization. Lead by savage mutants worshiping the Cult of Gore, these numerous groups of enemies of reason and culture are constantly threatening recovery of our civilization.
You shine as a beacon of hope for everyone. Or at least everyone who can afford your services. It's not greed, but everyone needs help and Band of Defenders cannot save everyone so why not focus on those who can pay and make your unit more effecient and operational?
  • World destroyed by nuclear apocalypse
  • Your group of mercenaries is the last protection of decent (and propertied) people
  • Defend strategic objects and drive mutant and savages back to their holes full of radiation

leadgrenade: Thanks. Starting with crappy weapons is our goal too. :-) No allies, sorry, just players vs AI. We don't know about workshop support yet, we will look into it. Quests are a good idea, we are currently thinking about making game more diverse and this could help. :-)

O and OPTIMIZATION! i dont care if this game was release in the current state that the trailer showed, if it can run on a gt 730 on low and run like a 1060 on ultra, i would buy this game in a heart beat.

Just some ideas, thanks for reading if you do, if you dont sorry for bothering you.

Crappy starter weopens that make upgrading weapons fun. Somthing like a rusty bolt action rifle or shotgun with a 3 round clip, or a rusty machingun with 21 rounds. allie ai, this could be similer to cod mw3 were you just call in 3-4 guys and cant get any more till there all dead. a workshop for maps and or weapon skins. Maybe a quest like system like, kill 30 enemys with sniper rifle to get x amount of xp or gold or what ever you are using for rewards.
