Aside from the pets, hit the armory for an absolutely amazing number of other goodies. You can equip six different weapons at a time – your primary, your back up, your melee weapon, special weapon, sniper rifles, and heavy weapons. For wear you can equip hats, masks, armor, skins, capes, and boots, all of which give you boosts. For gadgets, you can equip throwing weapons, tools (such as jetpacks), and support equipment (such as medkits). Royale mode is all cosmetic. The League tab contains both cosmetic items and (as far as hats go) items with a boost, and all of the league items require trophies to unlock. The craft area lets you craft your own mythical, legendary, epic, rare, and uncommon items.
The way to win more of this stuff, aside from the items in the league area, is to earn chests. To earn chests, go to the multiplayer tournament modes, win fights, and earn keys as a reward. The different chests cost either 5, 50, or 500 keys depending on the rarity of the items inside of the chests. Early on in the game, spend keys on loads of common chests until you have all of your gear slots filled out in the armory. Then save your keys for rarer chests so that you can get better equipment.
Know the best situations for every weapon. Long-range pick-offs are best done with the sniper rifle. Mid-range gunfights are where the machine gun shines. Use shotguns or other heavy weaponry for short range battles so that you can quick-fire and run. Melee weapons are strong but put you at risk, and are best used against zombie hordes in arena and co-op survival. Special weapons are all over the map – some are good for long ranges, some for short ranges, some for in between.
When you’re picking a map in the multiplayer mode, pay attention to the size of the map. Map size can range from S (small) all the way to XL (extra large). Try all sizes to see which one you like the best. Small maps tend to have a lot more action, while larger maps are less claustrophobic, and present more avenues of escape from other players.
Once you hit player level 6, you can unlock clan mode, which is essentially a cross between Clash of Clans and a shooter. You can build your own fortress, craft weapons and defenses, and attack other people’s forts to try and destroy their defenses. Your equipment all applies here, as well, so hit the armory after a few runs through clan mode and optimize your load out for maximum destruction.
The main benefit to joining clans? Clan battles are where you earn parts for crafting guns, armor, cosmetic equipment, and more. In the rest of the multiplayer battles, you get keys, coins, and experience, but in the clan battles, you get those crafting parts, too. allowing you to eventually add those mythical and legendary weapons to your repertoire.
