List of why NOT to play this game
- Inbalance of classes
- Certain weapons are broken e.g Rapid shooter basically a 100% stun lock gun
- Pay2Win Cash shop weapon wrecks every other weapon
- Co-op is not rewarding at all
- Peer to peer basically means host have advantage
- Very slow updates
- Hackers
- Grinding this game will not reward you, only LUCK will since every good item is a chance to get.

This game is really fun. I recently got back into it, but I spent a lot of time on it when it was in beta and honestly it was a pretty crappy experience.

I won a few of those weekend events and got the special badges by no lifing but the amount of hackers and laggy hosts was awful. However, now that the game is live and out of beta I decided to try it out again and I spent a good 4-5 hours playtime without noticing a single hacker and there are not nearly as many lag problems as there used to be.

They also did really well with balance. It feels a lot more like I ♥♥♥♥ed up when I die rather than Max being OP or Rena having infinite dashes.

I definitely recommend this game. It's not nearly as brutal on your hands as the first Gunz but it's definitely still just as fun.

It also has a very high skillcap to it, and I would say the entry barrier is pretty high too if you're not much of an FPS/TPS player. It's a very fast paced game. Definitely worth trying out though!

Gunz 2: The Second Duel is a sequel to the original Gunz which was released in 2003. This is a fast paced 3rd person shooter multiplayer game that allows you to execute gravity defying moves. Unlike the first Gunz many advanced techniques were removed and the game is now fit for casual and the more hardcore gamers on this franchise. Though free to play you can buy items from the microtransaction shop. There is a gambling system called the Tesla Shop, which uses purified ores and purified crystals, which are a type of currency in Gunz 2. This game has a player hosting system which allows players with the best suitable network to host the server, which may cause lag and is still a work in progress. There are so far 6 classes with different unique playstiles and different set of achievements, Gold and Ores are easy to get without using the microtransaction shop. Overall this game is fun to play with friends, and is suitable for both casual and hardcore gamers

Very disappointed at this game. MAIET is the worst company to have hold of this game; They ban you for 40 years on an Early Access Beta- Some of these players paid over hundreds of dollars, I know one who's paid over $200 and is banned- because of you getting caught up in a glitch not caused by you - A hacker once ruined the Tesla Shop RNG weapon winning section and glitched it for everyone making them get free rolls for a main prize in the shop - and they call you a hacker afterwards when it was never your fault you got a bunch of weapons from their own game being exploited due to ♥♥♥♥ coding and server control! In addition, they don't care about their players; they treat you like ♥♥♥♥ and only care about money. It's a Pay 2 Win game; blazing weapons that do 10 HP damage over 3 seconds in addition to bullet damage from the shop and have double the stats as the other weapons? Totally not Pay 2 Win. If you are going to play this game, DO NOT INVEST ANYTHING in it. They will treat you like trash and ban you with 0 conflict nor ♥♥♥♥s or apologies given.

Other than that, here are some extra features to make the game good! (Start sensing sarcasm, after all this IS a bad rating):

-P2P Hosting: Amazing, just get a group of 4 people all sitting next to each other, group up, and queue to get the 0 ping host advantage while the other team gets 300+ ping!

-♥♥♥♥ty room controlling: You get in a match, crash. You finish a match, crash. You find a match, crash. You can't control anything, you have to wait an hour for a match, no one queues in ranked play because of this ♥♥♥♥.

-Unbalanced classes: That's right, I'm throwing out the old Elena complainer here. But here's why: She's a gunslinger, weak at melee and is supposed to die and get caught by an assassin chasing them with melee easily- WAIT A SECOND, NOPE, UNCLE MAIET'S LOGIC THINKS, lets put 30% melee damage resistance and 150% extra melee damage at level 20 on the weakest melee character and make her the best one now! Not only that, lets make her have the ability to outdash spam a melee asassin while being able to fire a 6 shot kill super accurate rifle while in manuevers! Perfect, now she's the best ranged AND melee, AND WITH AN ADDED TWIST, the nade spam! Not only can you non-stop fire the nades, they also stun you, can stunlock if fired non-stop, and each one easily does 100 damage.
Asassins? My ♥♥♥, I can out asassinate enemy players with my Max, A SHIELD TROOPER.

-♥♥♥♥ty limited campaign mode!: Gunz 1 had a million dungeon quests and made the hard dungeons require a brain for unlocking them a first place, as well as being hard. But Maiet. Maiet, why. Why do you do this. Lets put levels that can be solo-ed and don't even need skill/thinking to finish. Same boss attack patterns, same map and objective, and same enemies and levels. Where's the variety!? Gunz 1 has a better PvE system than yours, and that game is so ♥♥♥♥ing old compared to your just released ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!

-Not convinced yet? WE'LL THROW IN, the Tesla Shop, and limited playing features! (4 characters only, 3 game modes only)
-Tesla Shop: Get ready, for the best weapons to be won at a 1/200 chance, with 2000 players rolling all for one item at once, and for each roll taking 5 hours to obtain! Unless you choose to pay, $50 for only 10 rolls at a 1/200 chance! It's such a good deal, we'll even throw in a limited edition 6 hours common-tiered timed weapon! Anddddddd Don't forget! This system is so ♥♥♥♥, it got exploited by hackers who got away with hacking, and instead got innocent players- some who paid over hundreds of dollars on this game- banned permanently because they tried to win one weapon, so the next time you try to win a weapon, be careful and dont get banned for 40 years IN AN EARLY ACCESS BETA!

-4 Characters: Make sure to ENJOY the same 2 weapons over and over!

-3 gay modes: Speaking of variety, LET'S PLAY, Team Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch Elimination, and Team Deathmatch timed!

So folks, get ready, GET READY FOR THE SECOND DUEL- err I mean DEATHMATCH- IN A 4V4 ONLY ROOM which has a 50% possibility to crash with 0 ping hosts you're playing with hosting from Antarctica to make your ping freeeeeeeeze to 500!

Such an improvement in features compared to Gunz 1. Ohhh man it's just too great to be true.
