To help you get ready for the new mode, Rush, we’re giving you a speed run-like overview of everything you should know about the mode before you jump into it! You ready? We’re ready, let’s do this!

Rush Mode is a quick, fun and exciting mode for all players

If you’ve played the original Gigantic, you know how Gigantic can be… well… gigantic! With Rush Mode, we wanted to streamline the experience and did just that by condensing all the things that make Gigantic great to create a more accessible, fast-paced, and action-packed mode that all players can enjoy.  When we say “fast-paced” we mean it, as Rush matches take just about 10 minutes to finish.

Before You Jump In: Play the Rush Tutorial, Find a Hero That’s Right for You, and Customize Your Experience

Gigantic: Rampage Edition comes with a ton of gameplay improvements compared to the original, including new tutorials to teach you the ins and outs of the game’s different modes, including Rush. We highly recommend playing at least the Rush tutorial in Rampage Edition, which will give you an excellent overview of what you need to know about the mode.

Once you wrap up the tutorial, you should then find a hero that’s right for you. In Gigantic: Rampage Edition there are 25 unique heroes to choose from, including two new heroes, Roland and Kajir, that weren’t in the original game. Each hero fits under a specific archetype and has their own distinct set of offensive and defensive capabilities, including their own “ultimate” abilities (called “Focus Skills” in-game.) Choosing a hero that fits your play style, whether you like to get up close and personal to take down enemies or take them down from a distance, is vital to increasing your chances of being victorious in matches.

After you’ve found a perfect hero for you, it’s then time to build and customize your loadout to match your playstyle! You can go with one of two predetermined builds, or you’d like to take a deeper dive into loadout creation, feel free to build your own when you’re ready. Having a loadout that works for you is important, but we can’t forget to mention that the most important part of choosing a hero… customizing it! As you make progress, you’ll be able to unlock and choose from a variety of hero and weapon skins and other customization options – and the best part is that you don’t need to spend a single penny to get anything, all of the content can be unlocked just by playing the game!

What’s neat about Rush compared to the existing mode Clash, aside from of course matches being lightning fast, is that you can change your hero mid-match, allowing you and your team to change strategies during matches. So, for instance, if you’re noticing the enemy team is just not giving you and your team any breathing room as they all are using melee DPS heroes against you, you can fight back by changing to a melee DPS hero yourself to go toe-to-toe with them. Knowing how and when to change heroes is important in Rush, but not only that, it’s also just a great way to learn how to use different heroes!

Another difference with Rush is heroes start at level 10, the max Hero level in the game. So, what that means is that you have access to all of a hero’s abilities from the get-go, making it even easier to get a feel for which hero is right for you. We highly recommend trying all abilities a hero has and figuring out what each ability does. Knowing the abilities in your arsenal is yet another way to being victorious!
