Hectic 8.0 - "Dark Hedge" Now Available!

Hectic is back with another HUGE content update which includes new weapons, perks, levels, more progression, and much more!

Hectic 8.0 - "Dark Hedge"

If it wasn't obvious enough, this update's theme is Halloween!
If you jump in before 11 / 7 / 18, you can unlock limited-time materials by simply playing the latest level!


Introducing NEW weapons!


With this new weapon, you can now give deadly powerful attacks against the enemy. The weapon can be used in the latest Obliteration level as well as Jackpot and Onslaught.


Still looking for more destruction? With the Uzilators, the only thing those blood thirsty aliens will taste is the bodies of other dead aliens. The weapon can also be used in the same modes listed above.

Featuring a re-designed headquarters!

As you can see, the area has gotten a major texture improvement. Also don't worry, the pumpkins aren't dangerous. Hopefully not.

Let's list off ALL the features included:

  • Added two new weapons! (They can be used in the latest Obliteration level as well as Onslaught and Jackpot)
  • Added a new Obliteration level! (This one is purely Halloween themed but WILL stay after the event)
  • Added themed item pickups! (Each item has been replaced with 3D skulls, but only for this event!)
  • Added themed materials! (They are ONLY exclusive to this event's playlist)
  • Added a revamped Jackpot! (Jackpot will now be completely random! We're talking areas, weapons and enemies!)
  • Added 3 new perks!
  • Added 2 new achievements!
  • Added 5 levels to player progression (20 is now the current max level)

  • Changed the designs of the headquarters (MUCH more detail has been added)
  • Changed the main menu background (It is now Dark Hedge themed)
  • Changed the game icon

  • Fixed certain weapon animations from not starting when holding the left-mouse button
  • Fixed the mouse cursor from disappearing when attempting to close the settings menu

I hope you all enjoy the update! Also, the game is 20% off just so you can participate in Hectic as well as it's future! Stay tuned for more updates.

Hectic 7.0 "Into the Void" is now here!

Apologies for the long delay. I have been hard at work with the latest update which is now available!

Hectic 7.0 - "Into the Void"

It is probably important to note that each upcoming update will have it's own theme and a major implementation within the game. This update is a great example!

Introducing a new species: The Void

These strange creatures capture the forms of other life and give a completely new challenge to the player. They have been added throughout the latest Obliteration levels

The game has had some MAJOR additions, one of which includes the career objectives

As you can see, the Career Objectives will be an additional way to earn XP so you can reach the very top!

Let's list off some of the main features below!

  • Added 3 new Obliteration levels! (Strap yourself in as you jump feet first into the Void's worlds!)
  • Added new Void enemies! (These strange creatures have captured the forms of other exisiting creatures but with completely different mechanics)
  • Added MORE player progression levels (15 is the current max now)
  • Added a new section for materials (materials have been added for levels 11-15)
  • Added the "Career Objectives" display at the headquarters
  • Added 9 new Steam achievements
  • Added an overhauled and detailed settings menu

  • Changed the weapon system (ALL base weapons will now remain unlocked and can only be equipped at specific times)
  • Changed the despawn timers for item drops (They will now remain on the map for 20 seconds)
  • Changed the pump animation for the Koil shotgun (there is now much more kick and movement)
  • Changed the stats for EVERY weapon (They are now all incredibly strong and powerful against any enemy)
  • Changed the sounds for when firing the Tier 1 Handgun
  • Changed icons for several game modes

  • Fixed the lowest mouse sensitivity option from still being WAY too high
  • Fixed the "Insta-Shoot" perk from playing the same shooting sounds when the animations are disabled
  • Fixed the game from glitching when reaching the max level and attempting to level up again
  • Fixed the game from getting an error when trying to quit to the main menu

    Thank you all for giving Hectic a chance. I hope you enjoy the update! Stay tuned for further updates!
