Newbies Tips: After Reloaded

Continuing from a thread that was before reloaded .

If you are a new comer , first of all , Welcome to the game and forum!
I have gathered some of the few essential tips you need for a head start!

Please take your time and read all of these , they might help you a lot in the long run :wink:

  • Tip 1 : Coordinate one type of a mech.

Never , go for a hybrid mech (a mech that uses 2 or all the elements of damage)
It will usually end up in having to multitask with everything (Resistence / HP / Heat & Cool / Energy & Regen)

  • Tip 2 : Inspect your enemies weapons , know your odds of wining.

Either in campaign , or multiplayer , you should know how the weaons debuff / damage you!
Debuffs : Regen / Cooldown / HeatCap / EnergyCap / Resistence Drain.

  • Tip 3 : Know the range of weapons.

This relates to the second tip , when you hold your mouse over an item , it shows a red line on the ground , thats the range where the enemy can use .
Use this to your advantage ! Use a teleport to go away out of their range and make them waste a turn to get withing range to shoot you.

  • Tip 4 : Dont overweigh on useless items!

As of now , you are given 1000 KG to build a mech.
Never Use weapons you barely use in pvp , they take up space for a potentially good weapon and useless kg on your mech.

  • Tip 5 : Good usage of modules.

Try to use coordinated modules !
A couple of HP plates , energy and heat modules.
If you are blessed to have a heat engine or energy engine , USE IT!
Its the most used module in the game , right next to HP Plates.

  • Tip 6 : Rarities of weapons.

Because reloaded occured , you can no longer get mythical items from boxes.
Rarest tier is now legendary.
Epics are some of the most used and most usefull.

Note : You can only get : C (Common) - R (Rare) - E (Epic) from silver boxes.
Legendary items can be won from fortune boxes and premium boxes / packs.

  • Tip 7 : Save tokens!

Dont spend them on paint early on , you will regret it!
Save them for a box discount , the drop rates are higher , so its a better chanse for good items.
Either save or a box discount , or save tokens for refills on item portals .

Note : NEVER BUY PREMIUM BOXES! Its always a higher value to buy a premium pack.
A premium box gives 1 card with chanse of legendary for 75 tokens.
A premium pack gives 5 CARDS with a chanse of legendary for 335
You can save 40 tokens if you buy a premium pack

  • Tip 8 : Portals!

As of now , we know of 4 portals :

  1. Item Mania Portal - It gives a lot of items , 4 items per card with high drop rates!
  2. Gold Portal - Doesnt give any boxes , but gives a lot of gold.
  3. Item Portal - Usually designed for a special item.
  4. Unichorn Portal - The best , and rarest portal. It has extremely high drop rates for legendaries ! Sadly , this portal wont be seen , since the developers thought it was too overpowered.

  • Tip 9 : Fuel and Refills.

1 Fuel Regenerates Every 5 minutes.
Meaning you regenerate a total of 12 fuel per hour.
Refills can be bought with tokens , one refill costs 30 tokens.
Its why i told you to save your tokens for portals :wink:
You can also gain reffils from leveling up.

Note : ALWAYS SPEND ALL YOUR FUEL! You need coins and items!

  • Tip 10 : Levels and rewards.

Currently , there are a total of 150 Levels !
Each level offers these rewards :

  1. A Fuel refill
  2. An amount of coins
  3. 2 tokens

Remember , every 10 levels is an item box for level up.
Those boxes have a high chanse of dropping a legendary item.
If not a legendary , its an epic item.

  • Tip 11 : Arena Coins

The most recent update introduced silver coins or arena coins!

Theres a special shop in the pvp lobby , where you can spend these coins to buff your stats.
You can only get these coins in pvp , only 5 wins a day give these coins!
So make good use of them ! :wink:

  • Tip 12 : Engeneering ( Transforming and boosting )

Boosting works the same as the old versions , nothing changed.
You click on an item you want to boost , then when use other items to boost it.

Note : Boosting takes coins. Nothing is free!

Transforming was a new feature introduced in Reloaded.
It basically gives you the opportunity to uprage an item to the next tier.
In order to do that , you need a set amount of coins , and some items with the same rarity.

You get bonus points if you fuse with the same category . (Torso + Torso | Leg + Leg. Physical + physical etc.)

Side Note : ALWAYS SAVE EPICS AND LEGENDARIES! Dont use them to boost!

  • Tip 13 : PVP !

For the first 5 battles of the day , you get the silver coins , exp and an set amount of coins.

  • Tip 14 : Competitive Plays

There are a total of 25 ranks in the game. You start at rank 25 when you start playing.
1v1 is very popular down there , so focus on 1 mech! Dont build any others!
One of the recent updates , included forced 2v2 for ranks 14-1.
Meaning , when you are close to rank 14 , you should atleast have a functioning second mech.

  • Tip 15 : Clans!

There is no point in making a clan , if its not top 10.
Clans are basically communities of 24 members , fighting for the top rewards !
A medal (for every clan member) and the 3 items from the weekly clan reward.

You get a ‘‘clan box’’ if you reach a set amount of wins multiple times.

  • Tip 16 : Solo Medals!

Only won by the strongest of players.
Hold Leaderboard palce 1-3 for a shiny medal. ( pros only :slight_smile: )

  • Tip 17 : Premium accounts.

These can be bought with tokens for temporary effects.
You shouldnt buy these if you have a low amount of tokens , always save them up!

  1. 20% more HP in campaign
  2. 50% more rewards in PVP
  3. Ad free gameplay

  • Tip 18 : Currency!

Right now , we have 3 types of currencies :

  1. Silver Coins / Arena Coins
  2. Gold
  3. Tokens

Silver coins can be used to buy permanent stat buffs.
Gold is used to buy boxes , transform and boost items.
Tokens are the most valuable!
They can be used for everything! (Except buying silver coins , you cant buy them)

  • Tip 19 : Transform Range

These will help you find out if you can use the item or not.
The best items are that can be fused to mythical.
Exceptions : Teleports , Hooks and HP Plates

White - Common
Blue - Rare
Epic - Purple
Legendary - Yellow
Mythical - Orange


  • Tip 20 : Raids!

These were included not too long ago , they are basically campaign mechs , but with a twist!
Every player will compete for high rewards!

How to get higher points :

  1. Try to get as many perfects (win without getting hit)

What weapons to use in the raid?

Sadly , you need premium items to get high positions .
Some of them :

  1. Valiant Sniper
  2. Magma Blast
  3. Bunker Shell
  4. Crimson Rapture

  • Tip 21 : Element / Type explanation
  1. Physical - Requieres a bit of energy to use , if any at all.
    Generates a small amount of heat
    Deals a lot of damage.

  2. Heat - Requiers a bit of energy. if any at all.
    Generates a LOT of heat.
    Shove your enemies into shutdowns! They’ll be forced to skip turns cause they need to cooldown!

  3. Energy - Requieres a LOT of energy .
    Generates a small amount of heat.
    Drain your enemies to deal extra damage from the drain!

  • Tip 22 : Keep any item that is rare!

When you get a new item , DONT FUSE IT STRAIGHT AWAY!
Be sure to ask some people if the item you got is keep-worthy.
You Might need them later.

I hope this will help you early on.

Best of luck in the arena!

This is beautiful and needs to be pinned!

@Elcent @Sarah247 do please pin this mans hard work for the newbies


I have some add-ons for this:
Never buy premium boxes, always save up for a Premium Pack.
Do something about the colored transformation dots and put a screenshot, that is one of the least noticed things by newbies.


Oh shit yeah , 1 second


Oh and in the clans thing you forgot about the win rewards for clans.


And you should also d a little section about raids, include:
How to get a higher score
Telling about the fixed position everytime of the mechs.
Recommend weapons for raid and there ranges.


There , done.
Added tips for raids , transform range and packs


Such a thoughtful lad. Thanks on behalf of the noobs


also add to the boosting tip, the fact that if you boost items of the same type(legs/sides/modules etc, also by heat/energy/phis), you get a bonus.


I doubt they make another unicorn portal unless they reload the game once again
No need for that info imo


Woah woah, if you’ve got anger to direct. Direct it elsewhere, not on this topic.

We’d all be mad, that doesn’t mean to let it go in a topic meant to help people. Alright.


I just got angry I can’t do the unicorn portal >:(


Well too bad , not our fault you werent playing when it was out.


That’s completely fine, but please. Do not release your anger here.

(and if it helps, the good drops unicorn portal only last 4 hours before being turned off then back on later with “worse” drops.)

Anywho, let’s all stop the off topic-ness here. c:


This is extremely useful , pin this up and not make any new players get stuck in the cycle of boredom again


You forgot the clan rewards for getting X kills (summed) in arena in the week ^^


shoot , will fix that


This is not the thread to ask for drone choices. The other thread is


Very nice thread!!

Had some suggestions but you implemented them, thanks :smile:



TechnoDive Great job on the TiP page looks good.
