Trigger Fist Cheats And Tips
If you can do without the military hoopla normally associated with Activision's Call of Duty series, and prefer to just hop online and shoot people, check out Trigger Fist. This mostly barebones iOS effort from Lake Effect Applications ditches the "USA, USA" love fest normally associated with modern day shooters in exchange for eight-person multiplayer matches where bullets and rockets zip through the air, leaving bodies in their wake. On top of that, it takes less than a minute to go online, and once you're in, there's no bothersome lag to speak of.
This also means the action is fast-paced and brutal, as it only takes a couple shots to put someone down. To prevent you from becoming a statistic of the dead variety, we put together this Trigger Fist cheats and tips guide to help you dominate the battlefield.
[Editor's Note: Always remember that you can customize the button layout in Settings. Ah yes, and you can't look up or down.]
Cheat Your Way To Victory By Purchasing "Next Unlocks"
Trigger Fist doesn't operate like a freemium game per se. There are no diamonds to acquire, or gold bricks strewn along the maps, so you can't buy a whole mess of stuff. You can, though, pick up the next unlock for weapons and equipment with some dough. Specifically, $0.99 for each unlock. Kind of steep, but hey, you'll have access to the best gear. Just click the desired item's icon while in the Equipment area.
Play As All Three Classes During A Match
Trigger Fist has three classes (Scout, Rifleman and Gunner), each one possessing signature weapons. Turns out, you have the option of playing as all three during a multiplayer/single-player match. Why do this? You can earn XP for all three, which goes toward individual unlocks. To switch classes, wait till you die, then select one on the left side of the screen before re-spawning.
Don't Run Out In the Open
Seems like common sense, but we can't begin to tell you the number of times some clueless player wandered into a wide open space, inadvertently putting him or herself in our sights. Bottom line, cover is your friend.
Crouch To Go Behind Cover
Swiping down instructs your character to kneel, which is a smart thing to do, as it puts the soldier behind bulletproof objects.
Use The Sensor
In a weird twist, Trigger Fist comes with a sensor located in the top right that not only tells you when someone's firing a weapon, but also how close he or he is to you. Think of it as a form of radar. On that note, it's probably not a good idea to unload a full clip, as you'll draw unwanted attention.
Remember, You Have Secondary Weapons
Swipe the weapon icon left or right to use a pistol. Even better, swipe up or down to access the RPG or grenade launcher, providing your primary weapon comes with such an attachment. And remember, you have grenades, located on the bottom right corner of the screen.
Give your virtual self an edge by equipping two different perks. What's available? Deep Pockets (extra ammo), Adrenaline (quicker health regeneration), Flack Jacket (reduced damage from explosives) and Awareness (extended sensor detection), to name a few.
Complete Achievements For Bonus XP
That's right, you'll earn valuable experience points by completing achievements. To help you along, the developers even list your progress for each one. With this in mind, scoring 250 kills results in 2,500 XP. Come on, you've earned it.
Know The Rules For Each Mode
Here's a tip: Don't jump into a multiplayer match without knowing the objective. Behold Trigger Fist's four different modes.
Free-for-All: Every man for himself. First player to 15 kills wins.
Team Deathmatch: Work as a team. First team to reach 30 kills wins.
