Our Islands of Nyne Beginners Guide will tell you all of the basics of the game and give you some tips and tricks to make your initial few hours in the game a bit more bearable and enjoyable.
Islands of Nyne Beginners Guide
The first thing that you notice is that the game tries to go as old school as it can and tries to retain a modern feel at the same time. The movement allows for bunny hopping and strafing and that is a mechanic that you will need to learn by practicing. The weapons themselves are also not based on their realistic counterparts, so practice will be key in the game.
At its core, the gameplay is still the same. You drop into the arena and battle it out until only 1 player or only 1 team remains. So let us go ahead and look at some tips and tricks that will help you battle and win.
General Tips and Tricks
It is important to master the movement but also the weapons. Not only do all of the weapons have their very own unique drop speeds and travel time, they also have a recoil pattern like CS: GO. For that reason, it is best to go to the firing range and trying out each of the weapons to see how you can control the recoil and be more effective with them.
Moreover, remember that each weapon has its own place in the game. Shotguns are best for clearing out buildings whereas Assault and Sniper Rifles are perfect for medium to long-range combat.
Remember that finding armor is almost as important as finding weapons. Apart from that, you should also try to find the Extra Capacity Unit as it would allow you to carry more firearms with you. The game has a mix of both close quarter and open long-range combat, so it is best if you are able to carry multiple weapons with you and are able to fight no matter where you are in the map.
Remember that you can run faster if you have the knife or the pistol equipped. For that reason, try using those weapons when you are sure there are no enemies nearby. But only when you are sure. Also, remember that you are able to perform actions such as sprinting while you reload so that can be a good way to avoid damage.
Remember to only take a fight with an enemy if you are sure you can take them down. Taking fights at 500 meters will only alert everyone in your vicinity to your position and chances are you will not be able to take down the enemy anyway. If you do fight at long distances, try using the burst or semi-automatic modes of your Assault Rifles, as they are much more accurate at longer distances.
The Desert Eagle is a very viable weapon as it can perform a 1 shot kill to the head. It is probably the best pistol in the game if you are accurate enough, therefore, try to learn how to use it on the firing range and then utilize it to change the outcome of firefights.
Lastly, remember to heal up after a fight. Nano Meds are great since they heal 50% of your health. Try to see if the enemy that you have killed had any nano-meds on them and try to stock them in your inventory as much as you can too. Use them whenever you feel like they are necessary and do not try to be selfish with them.
