Also experience the Dragonfly, an upgraded replacement for the Dragon unit, featuring enhanced durability and ranged attacks that align seamlessly with the Bug faction.
INVENTORY POWER-UPS: Purchase power-ups in the loadout menu before each battle and use them strategically throughout the fight. These power-ups include Air Strike, Mind Control Barrel, Indestructible Warp Gate, Double Damage, Invisibility, Energy Blade Blast, and Units Damage Boost.
EDITOR IMPROVEMENTS: Group favorite assets, simplify trigger identification with numbered tags for occlusion and dimmer volumes, visualize player spawn points with new arrow indicators, evaluate maps using internal rating numbers, and add dynamic laser traps with customizable activation frequency.
TECH TREE UPGRADES: Expand the arsenal with three new technology upgrades obtained through spaceship research. Upgrade the gate to a teleport point with the Warp gate, enabling strategic movement on the battlefield. Amplify the Med Gun’s effectiveness with increased damage, allowing it to inflict double the harm on enemies. Unleash the power of the visually striking Red Sword, capable of effortlessly cleaving through multiple enemies with a single devastating strike.
MORE AVATARS: Earn exclusive rewards for galaxy conquest with the addition of three new avatars.
In Guardians Frontline, players must defend the federation from an enemy onslaught as they attempt to extract a mysterious energy source. As both soldier and commander, players must fend off alien forces with a blend of powerful weapons on the ground and powerful ships from the air. With single-player, co-op, and PvP modes, players can go in alone or with a unit.
