Surprise Flamethrower! Blacklight Retribution Dev Diary Shows You How
Blacklight Retribution has turned some heads already with its stylized graphics and high-octane gameplay. Now the team is ready to get into the specifics of this F2P FPS, which they deliver by way of the dev diary below.
“Weapon Depots” are considered the “game-changer” here. As players rack up more kills and capture objectives, they’ll unlock access to these valuable, heavily-armed arsenals, which enable them and their teammates to deploy rail guns, mech suits, and the above-mentioned flamethrower.
Though the system smacks of the “rich-get-richer” reward loop that can make Call of Duty games so annoying, the diffusion of these power weapons throughout an entire team should put a fresh spin on things. If you’re worried, the embedded video should either reinforce or quash your fears.
