Notes on upcoming new contents - 10/28/2014

Hello everyone,

First of all, I would like to apologize about delayed contents update and announcements. As you might already know, we have launched GunZ 2 in South East Asia last month. We’ve been focused on the project for the past few weeks, and we are now ready to push the next contents update on Steam for you all.
We have prepared 24 new items all equipped with brand new features that will bring a huge impact to the gameplay.

See below for details of the new gears.

The latest technology developed by scientists of NAU enabled soldiers to use their optimite energy when handling firearms. By doing so, they can use special abilities installed on the weapons.

Optimite Crime Buster MK I
[X-ray Scope] Scope zoom sees through objects. (Constantly consumes ZP)

Optimite Crime Buster MK II
[Lock and Load] Waiting for 3 seconds in scope zoomed in activates Lucky Bullet. (Replaces original Lucky Bullet)

Optimite Dual Tiger Teeth MK II

Optimite Royal Daggers MK II
[Chain Rush] Shadow Rush skill's cooldown time resets if an enemy is killed from skill damage. (Skill cooldown time is increased)

Optimite Spitter MK I
[Precision Strike] Grenade shells can be detonated by pressing R button. (Grenades do not explode upon contact with targets.

Optimite Spitter MK II
[Fire Skipper] Grenade shell explodes and bounces off group 4 times. (Reload time increased)

Optimite Baton MK I
[Shockwave] Hammerfall is enhanced with 3 consecutive explosion instead of 1. (Explosion damage gets smaller over the course)

Optimite Baton MK II
[Determination] After taunting motion, Elena can use powerful unblockable attack with mouse right button. (Replaces Launch Attack)

Optimite Eagle Eye MK I
[Roulette] One round per each clip does greater damage. (Disables Fast Draw)

Optimite Eagle Eye MK II
[Auto Aim] One Shot One Kill locks on targets automatically, but max target number decreases.

Optimite Anaconda Tail MK I
[Arms Robbery] Grabbing an enemy temporarily neutralizes enemy's weapon.

Optimite Anaconda Tail MK II
[Mad Cowboy] Upon casting Extermination, Wayne charges forward attacking all enemy targets in his way. (Cannot turn direction)

Optimite Undertaker MK I
[Explosive Round] Fires explosive rounds instead of the conventional bullet. (Cannot move while firing)

Optimite Undertaker MK II
[Recycled Rounds] Idling the gun regenerates ammo.

Optimite Legion Shield MK I
[Shielddozer] Max charges 3 times upon casting Shield Charge. (Skill damage decreases over the course)

Optimite Legion Shield MK II
[Light Leap] Shield Shock consumes only 1 ZP bar. Shield Shock can be cased in air. (Skill damage is reduced)

Optimite TDW-4 MK I
[Guided Rocket] Fired rocket traces after the target Rose's crosshair is pointing. (Firing rate decreased)

Optimite TDW-4 MK II
[Multishot] Rose can fire upto 3 rockets at once by pressing and holding Fire button. (Movement speed is decreased while charging shots)

Optimite Survival Knife MK I
[Humongous Fall!] Skill damage of What you got in there? is also increased by 50% but chances to trip also increases to 100%

Optimite Survival Knife MK II
[Kaboom!] Jump slash triggers an explosion and damages all nearby enemies.

We’ll be have a few rounds of testing period to finalize these new items for the next 3 to 4 weeks, and then prepare for release. Again, I apologize about the prolonged delay in contents update.

By playing the first GunZ: The Duel some years ago for many hours, this looks like a seatback from the previous game and it's horrible for a modern game.
The interface is ugly, VERY ugly and not intuitive. Characters are very strange and with absurdly poor modeling.
Then I tried to ignore those facts and ended up very frustrated with the combat. The game does not run smoothly, camera is weird and seems like they made it harder to control.
Does not seem like a modern action game, does not feel like one. Don't know if my judgement grew better or they really messed this up. I think even the characters classes are worse now.

At least it's free to play, but you may waste your time or get frustrated with your own nostalgia.

Great game, easy to learn and play. When you start out, it takes a little time to get into it, you'll probably die a couple times before you get the hang of it, thus losing to stronger players all the time.
The only bad thing about the game now, which has nothing to do with the game, is there's not a lot of other players playing now. So, a lot of the people left playing it are higher levels. So, the function that controls associating people with people more close to their level, thus making it easier to fight each other, is disabled, practically. I've been on there recently, and there's usually around a 100 people, globally on, when I'm on. This is the only problem I usually find, as it affects gameplay. Without enough people, each multiplayer game has a hard time surviving.
Now, if you want my honest opinion of the game, it's great, awesome even.
I usually delve into campaign when I don't have anyone to play with. However, even in campaign I get the opportunity to shoot up a lot of cpu's so it's great.
The key is learning how to learn to use each weapon as quick and efficiently as possible and learn how to use your character as best you can. Ex. wall running and moving while shooting is key. The moment you stop running, especially in multiplayer deathmatches, you're dead. All it takes is a guy to come up behind you, or snipe you from afar, and bang, you're gone.
The loss of a bunch of people makes this game harder, as you have to face down really tough opponents at times, and there's a lot less people to have fun with. You aren't able to get through the campaign as easy, due to this, also.
My advice to others is, if you have steam friends, have them come along with you, at least when you start out. This will allow you to further both of your profile characters and gain a lot in the process.
Also, don't forget to log in everyday as you get daily rewards, as well as rewards for winning a specific amount of normal matches, usually 2 or 3. Use gold to unlock characters and weapons, mainly, although, if you don't really care what to use gold on, they have much much more to save up for.
You can spend money on this game, but you really don't have to. I haven't seen a need.
I should address, before closing, that when you start, if you're going to pick a character that'll last in a fight, and gain you gold more quickly, I'd pick either Elena or Max. If you don't care gender wise, Elena or Max is perfect. Elena's got the best for far away battles, which is a lot of times better. Max is good on offense and defense, with a massive shield built for ultimate defense and ultimate pummeling of opponents. These two are quite honestly, the best characters in my opinion, and will take you far quicker.
Ivan is often a common choice, although, he is likely to die quicker, as he acts mainly as a melee fighter. If you're going to use him, I recommend being familiar with his third weapon, a sniper rifle. To activate the scope, right click when using and you'll be able to see cross-hairs and a lot close up. On a fun note, the sniper can actually hit more than one target if the targets are really close to where you fired. However, the cross-hairs must be directly on a target, not an inch off, in order to hit.
Lastly, this is important for any new players, or anyone who is playing who doesn't know this. On a laptop, especially the newer ones, like I have a Toshiba laptop, you have the special keys which control volume and so much more. Now, when playing campaign, you have things called revival coins. It'll ask when you die to press F5, or F6. However, when you press the key on a laptop, it doesn't work, and you usually have no idea why. I only figured it out recently, that you have to press the key on your laptop named "FN." It's a little blue key on my computer on the left side in between my "windows" key and my "CTRL" key. It's on the bottom. You'll have to press the "FN" key plus F5, or F6, as asked by the computer, in order to revive.
So, to repeat, "FN" + F5 (or F6) = revive coin use
Now, just to warn you, you'll respawn in different places in the room. It'll usually be in some beginning part of the room you're in, not in the very beginning of the campaign, so don't worry about that. However, where you respawn isn't always where you want to. So be careful when respawning sometimes, as you sometimes wind up in the wrong spot and die quickly.
Alright, I think this'll do it for now. Hope this helps, and hope you all enjoy.

GunZ: The Second Duel is an online third-person shooting game created by South Korean-based MAIET Entertainment. It is the sequel to 2003's GunZ: The Duel. Both are their own game. The mechanics in this game are different than the first GunZ. But if you happened to have played it, chances are you're going to like this one. This a game of combos, chainning attacks, and "poking" down peoples health. Don't become discouraged by the better players, view it as an opportunity for a challenge. There are "hosts" in game and everyone has a certain ping while connected to that host. This can be bad at times but fret not, MAIET intends to add dedicated servers as they have already added a test server in US West. Maybe you're not convinced? How about if I said there are tournaments with prizes? What if i also said it is streamed live and you can view the brackets with different tournaments available?

Here are a few streams:

Still don't know if you want to play? Well that's up to you, but, you're missing out on a whole different kind of gaming community that makes you want to play and be more and more competitive.

Up to you.

Great speed-shooter.

I played old Gunz and i have to say that this is more balanced tho not as fast and brutal as old one.

Could be beter if fights lineup was more quick. Sometimes you have to wait 20-30 minst for next fight. Also region-only player search make waiting line even longer. could be great if we could play global, More players=less time to wait for fight

It's worth the download, but suffers from a very low population right now, especially PvE.

Each character is a different class that has a series of weapons and special moves specific to them. You get your first character free, but since you DON'T get to try them before you buy them, you'll have to do some research or just hope you get lucky with your first choice. You can purchase the other characters with in-game currency. Extra items all appear to have durability and would require repair of some kind, likely a reduced in-game currency price.

Overall gameplay is similar to the first game, wall running and a mix of gunplay and melee. The campaign mode is fun enough but too difficult to take on alone with the characters I had access to.

Been a while since I played, but last I heard the item system was still garbage, a lot of the cooler aspects got nerfed, and it's still unbalanced AF, perhaps more so.
The Idea was so great that I stayed hooked for a while, but the appeal didn't last.
It's like Archeblade, only Archeblade sucked because there were so few devs and funds, This just sucks because that's the way it is. Great idea ruined. Could have been much better. Again, it has been a while, but I have heard things have only gotten worse. The other reviews, however make me question myself. To each his own.

Best Game ever , I know alot of friends in here ,
I don't really like violence and fighting but i Do enjoying the game
One problem is , player inside are getting so annoying and irritating.

Thus, I still found some minor glitch and bug in this game.
Hope it get fixed and add more season for the campaign and also the team size :D
