Basic Information

Blackshot is a tactical first-person shooter in which the player is a mercenary fighting for corporations in the wake of World War 3. Players choose from one of four characters, and equip them with customized items through an in-game shop. Gameplay pits two corporations against each other in modes ranging from Team Deathmatch, to Bomb Planting, to Capture the Flag. For players who enjoy PvE, Day Break requires all players to defend their base using limited supplies against endless streams of enemy NPCs.

About the Game

In a near-future world, governments have replaced traditional warfare with the use of clone soldiers, allowing an infinite number of soldiers to be deployed at any time. Unfortunately, now that warfare could be waged cheaply, conflicts worsened across the globe worsened until the advent of nuclear war. With the world's government's destroyed, the remaining military factions ally themselves with multinational corporations, each seeking to regain control of cloning technology.

At least that's the idea. In reality, Blackshot's story is really just an excuse to get teams of players to kill each other in fast-paced digital combat, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Players create a character based on four templates, upgrade them with purchasable cosmetic items, and send them into arena matches to fight for either given team. Over the course of play, characters will earn experience to gain promotions and in-game currency for shops while readying themselves for the next map.

The game offers some unique twists on leveling up through its mastery system. While the game offers a traditional experience system, taking characters through levels 1 to 60, the mastery system increases with specific weapon use. Mastery points are awarded to each weapon, whether rifles, shotguns, or melee wapons for successful kills, with headshots gaining more points than other kills. Mastery ranks award players with special temporary weapons and the ability to purchase advanced gear through the in-game shop.

Blackshot supports gameplay modes, three of which are PvP. The first is your standard Team Deathmatch, in which the team with the most kills wins. Next is Search and Destroy, in which attackers plant bombs that defenders prevent from detonating. Team Flag Match is a capture-the-flag mode rewarding each side for captures and enemy kills.

The last mode, supporting PvE gameplay, is the more unique Bunker Defense. Currently consisting of a single level, the players must work together to defend their base from an incoming terrorist assault. The players have a limited amount of health supplies between them, but must maintain the defense until a timer reaches its completion.

Blackshot, while not especially deep,remains an easy-to-learn shooter with a several gameplay modes to choose from. The addition of a mastery system encourages players to specialize with specific weapons, while the maps offer varied environments, large and small, to test them in. Thanks to its free-to-play status, shooter fans new and old should find it easy to jump into Blackshot and see what it has to offer.
