GunZ 2: The Second Duel is an action game created by MAIET Entertainment that puts an emphasis on a wildly effective online gameplay. Characters players can perform crazy stunts in the air, run on walls, bounce off the ceiling and climb the pillars.
GunZ 2: The Second Duel is an online action game which is a continuation of the Korean hit from 2003. The project was developed by the same team as the original, MAIET Entertainment.
The game's story does not belong to the complex. The storyline revolves around a mysterious mineral known as Optimit that led to the industrial disaster in the first GunZ. Nevertheless, there is no shortage of those willing to exploit it. Several factions are trying to monopolize the mining and other groups want to stop them. The players assume the roles of agents working for these organizations.
In comparison with the first part, the biggest change in GunZ 2 is the appearance of a physics engine. It completely transforms the combat, because interacting with the environment is one of the most important elements of the gameplay. Characters can perform crazy stunts in the air, run on walls, bounce off the ceiling and climb the pillars. The the core of the game is competing with other people, but there are also PvE missions in which we join forces with friends against enemies controlled by the artificial intelligence, including giant bosses. These include, among others, 25-meters mech. His armor is virtually indestructible. The only weak point is in the upper parts of the machine. To get there, you have to climb up and make a risky jump. While more ambitious players will run up the robotís armor like on a wall. It is extremely difficult, because in contrast to a wall, the robot does not stand still. This example perfectly illustrates how arcade GunZ 2 is. It is a game where the skills of the players count more than the statistics of their characters.
The game allows you to choose from the three character classes. Silent Avenger is a killer who makes use of a light rifle and a sword. Gunslinger, in turn, uses a quick-firing guns and a knife. The last class is the Shield Trooper - hugely muscled warrior who makes up for the lack of reflexes with heavy weapons and a powerful shield. Each of these professions has two versions - male and female. All the classes have their own fighting styles, weapons, and special moves. For our successes we are rewarded experience points for which we increase the combat potential of our character and teach him/her new attacks and skills.
