About This Game

Gear Up is a multiplayer game where you build tanks and battle online opponents. Crawl the arena in devious spider legs, escape with your trusty jetpack or serve your opponents a healthy dose of proximity mines as you design with over one million different combinations.

  • Master the art of propulsion – Will you go for the rumbling caterpillar tracks, swoop across the arena using wind turbines or let loose the smell of burning rubber with go-kart tires?
  • Adapt your arsenal of weaponry – Do you prefer the cold steel of the minigun or the heartwarming sensation of the flamethrower? Will you fall for the old world charm of a thundering bronze cannon or does the electric zapping of the tesla generator tickle your mind?
  • Wage war your way – Regardless if you deploy the body of a submarine, blend into the background with stealth generators or love giving your opponents the dry taste of gunpowder with a barrage of missiles – the choice is yours to make.

Features

  • Battle up to 16 players online
  • Play Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Conquest
  • Massive customization with over one million different combinations of parts
  • Arcade physics simulation
  • Leaderboards and achievements

From time to time we encounter games that leaves us a mark. For some reason Gear Up is one of those(for me). Back when I only have around 20 games here in Steam. This is one of my most played game. And I installed and uninstalled a lot of games. But I never did uninstalled this one. It has this kind of feeling that makes you say "Let's go for one more round". And I really love the simplicity of it.

Edit: it appears the game has been updated and I love the fixes. The only stuff this game is missing are more maps, mutators, a scoreboard (what are the kill counts and assist for if you can't compare it with the others), and they should also make it so that when you target a player, you'll see not only their name but their rank as well. It would help!

Pros:
-One of the funniest games I have ever played.
-Absolutely not pay to win, I often play on default tank to make it harder for me. Also, I got to world 1st without buying premium.
-You get a free slot in your garage for every level you reach (many people don't understand this), so you don't have a limited garage, you just need to level up and you can have up to 22 slots, which can contain around 1/5 of the items in game, not bad for a free player!
-You can have a lot of fun with friends.
-You will literally never finish to try out new combos. After 600 hours of gametime I still find new interesting designs.
-No, machine guns are *NOT* op, just learn to play and you will see it.
-Great customization possibilities.
-Very good balance since the latest updates (hey, blame me if it is wrong, I did it!).
-Developers LISTEN TO THE COMMUNITY, top players and beta testers to improve the game each update! <-- this is great, really. Totally the opposite of Robocraft, and I used to be the bug list holder for FreeJam, don't tell me you know better, thanks!
-Wide variety of weapons and parts to use.
-Fast-paced shooting game, some snipers can camp but an experienced player will know how to make their tactic useless.

Cons:
-Lacks tutorial/guide, but I will fix this ;)
-Toxic people that say this game is pay to win for no reason. Wtf do you expect to have an op default tank? It is actually pretty good, but it is hard to use it properly, so most people get trashed with it.
-Noobs that will tell you you hack because you annihilate them, but I guess this one can be applied to any game.

It's hard to find a game that really scratches the itch in want of a multiplayer shooter in the customizable mech/robot niche genre. Too often do games rub you the wrong way, ruined by pay-to-win features (MWO + many others), too much customization allowing ugly player builds and unfixed bugs (Robocraft), or glaring balance issues and console exclusivity (Armored Core). Then there are other games, like Hawken, that hold a ton of promise, but the developers give up and change hands.

Gear Up is an endearing indie game that does its best to maintain balance and fun, and avoids pay-to-win. While Gear Up is a bit casual, and still in development, I have to say it is the closest game I have found to really enjoy and come close to scratching that itch of finding a solid mech shooter.

Its a very nice, small, simple, free game definitely worth trying out!

You get in game currency for playing and with it you can buy tank parts for your tank. There are no higher tier parts, meaning: you dont have to buy your next level weapons and hull and etc. every item is balanced, at least i didnt see any outrageously overpowered weapons in my ~10 hour.

Edit: And its NOT P2W.
