This build has not been seen in a public branch.


Our latest content update is live and jam-packed with exciting new things to play with. We’ve got a brand new weapon styled after one of our IRL World Bosses, the rollout of Controller Support, the new Lives System, a main menu overhaul, and much more.


We just couldn’t miss the opportunity to name this gun after the legend, LazarBeam – Genius right?!

Packed with plenty of damage, insane range and near perfect accuracy to boot, this high impact weapon is sure to be a new fan favourite.

Keep your eyes peeled for a blog dedicated to this epic new weapon – but for now, jump in game to experience its power!


Say goodbye to the old Demotion System and hello to the new Lives System. This new system introduces a fast-paced, risk vs reward dynamic that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

We saw that high level players had limited incentive to prestige, and that the Demotion System was not as clear as we would have wanted. With the new Lives System, dying has consequences, so watch your health!

Each progression level has a certain number of lives to help you survive the battle for the crown. But be careful, because each time you die, you'll lose a life from your total count.

If you manage to level up and reach a new bracket, all of your lives will be replenished. The catch-22 is that the capacity of your lives will be lower than before, so be sure to strategise before running head first into battle.

  • Levels 1-4 = Infinite Lives
  • Levels 5-9 = 6 Lives
  • Levels 10-14 = 5 Lives
  • Levels 15-19 = 4 Lives
  • Levels 20-25 = 3 Lives

If you run out of lives completely from level 5 onwards, you'll be sent back to level 1 and lose any perks, weapons, or equipment you had until your next level up.

But don't worry, there are ways to increase your lives count. To help you stay in the game, keep an eye out for health pickups scattered throughout the arena – these are set to a lower drop rate than health packs, so you need to grab them before another Gladiator can!

Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? With each life at stake, you'll have to make split-second decisions and take calculated risks to progress through the game. But fear not, the fun doesn't stop there! The Lives System also creates emergent gameplay opportunities, allowing you to capitalise on other features in the game like perks and equipment.

So gear up, strategise, and get ready to take on the challenges ahead. The Lives System is about to change the game and create so many more variations in your gameplay style and experience.



We’ve got even more cool stuff in this update.

In our previous update, you may remember how we added in multiple new perks in the game. As an update to that update, we have made some visual changes to help with readability. Every player will now have an aura based on whichever perk type that makes up the majority of their build. Depending on your selected perks, you’ll now have different coloured muzzle flashes, tracers, impact and player aura. Flashy, right?


Did I hear you say full controller support? Well, if you didn’t that’s what you’re getting! Update v0.2.0 brings full controller support to the game and a revamp of all the menus. This will continue to be enhanced so let us know your feedback.

The main menu has received a major facelift, with an all new 3D background. It's now sleeker than ever and ready to impress.

Alright, Gladiators! The competition’s fierce and it’s time to put your skills to the test and steal that crown… or die trying. Good luck!

As always, where possible please ensure all drivers are updated to ensure the best and smoothest performance.
