Hyper Scape is a new battle royale game from the critically acclaimed studio, Ubisoft. As its a battle royale, it features elements similar to what we see in other titles such as Warzone, Apex Legends, and Fornite. However, there are still many things about Hyper Scape that make it different, and sometimes more fun.
The main thing which makes it different from other battle royales is its design. It’s more of a sci-fi environment and focuses on making the best use of technology. Today, we’ll try to cover everything you need to know about this game in our beginner’s guide. In addition to this, we’ll share a few things to help you become better at it.
Hyper Scape Gameplay
In Hyper Scape, up to 100 people drop into the map with nothing except for their melee weapons in their hands. There are multiple locations on the map and each one of them offers different types of loot. Depending upon the area, some locations will offer low to mid-tier loot, while others will be filled with high-tier loot. During your match, you can also pick up different abilities called hacks that can help you with either taking down opponents or escaping critical situations. However, you can only carry two weapons and two hacks at a time.
In other battle royale games, you have to make sure that you and your teammates are the last players standing. However, this is not the case with Hyper Scape. Instead of hunting down the final remaining team, you will have to focus more on getting the crown that appears on the map during the final stage. Any team who gets a hold of this crown for the required time wins the match.
Weapons in Hyper Scape
Hyper Scape is currently in its open beta stage, because of why there aren’t that many weapons available. However, we still have a number of amazing weapons that are scattered across the map. We recently made a post about the best weapons available in Hyper Scape so you should definitely check it out if you’re struggling with choosing the right weapon.
From Shotguns to Assault Rifles, Hyper Scape has it all. Some weapons are ideal for only close-ranged combat, while others can also prove to be useful in both close and medium-range gunfights. The best part is that you can upgrade a weapon that you’re carrying in a really unique way. All you have to do is find a similar weapon and fuse it with your current one. This will improve it in many ways, such as increasing its clip size or the amount of damage it offers.
As mentioned before, hacks are abilities that you can pick up in the match. These hacks are scattered across the map, so you don’t have to worry about not finding one. Just like weapons, these hacks can be made more powerful by fusing them with duplicate ones, and all of them work in a different way. For instance, one hack will help you with transforming into a giant ball to travel faster, while the other one might help you with creating a wall.
Locations In Hyper Scape
In Hyper Scape, you’ll see that some locations on the map are highlighted in blue color, while others are highlighted in orange color. The blue locations are the standard ones as they offer low to mid-tier loot. On the other hand, the orange locations are the ones where you can find some of the best loot for yourself and your teammates. This is the reason why these locations are called “landmarks.” However, this is something that makes them hot zones and you’ll always come across multiple enemy squads in these areas. In our looting guide, we talked about the best landing spots in Hyper Scape.
Become A Scout
Something I personally love about Hyper Scape is that after we die in it, we become a memory echo. Basically, after you get eliminated, you can still play the game with a ghost version of your character. However, you cannot use any weapons in this state. But you can still travel as far as you want to and ping enemies for your team. The best part is that you can still use your mic after you’re dead. So in short, you have the role of a warrior when you’re alive, which changes to the role of a scout when you’re dead.
You can also get revived by your teammates if they find a dead body in neo arcadia. They have to use this dead body to activate your echo generator. Ubisoft has done a remarkable job by introducing multiple regeneration pods throughout the map. However, since it takes around 5 seconds to bring someone back to life, you should be on guard all the time.
Hyper Scape Tips
The most important thing to remember is that teamwork is the key to success in Hyper Scape. If you land somewhere and your teammates land at different locations, then your entire squad will get eliminated within a few minutes. Another reason why teamwork is necessary is that unlike other battle royale games, reviving is pretty fast in Hyper Scape. This is why you have to make sure that you eliminate the entire enemy squad as soon as you can so that they have no chance of reviving any of their teammates.
These were some important things you should know about Hyper Scape. If you want to join in on the fun, then here’s how you can access the open beta on PC.
