Gunfinger Cheats And Tips
Tap to shoot, shoot to kill.
If you're a fan of House of the Dead style shooting games, then Gunfinger is right up your alley. This arcade-style affair from Pixel Toys has you shooting zombies, targets and other objects across each stage, attempting to get as high a score as possible so you can open up new areas. Various guns are available for purchase, and you can upgrade them for maximum effect.
Don't go into this zombie hunt unprepared. Take these tips to heart and come out shooting!
How do I play Gunfinger?
It works like an arcade shooter. You aim your gun by holding down your finger on the screen, then release to fire. If you prefer, you can also quick fire by tapping it. However, once you run out of ammunition, you'll need to manually reload by cocking back the clip, located in the bottom left corner of the screen.
With each round, you have the ability to earn up to three stars, which can help you unlock stages later in the game. The best way to do this is by stacking up points, mainly by performing headshots on zombies and bulls-eyes on targets, as well as hitting other objects like ducks and buckets.
The better you do, the more stars you'll earn in the game, and the further you'll be able to go!
What's the best weapon to use in Gunfinger?
You'll start out with a pistol and soon have access to other weapons like a shotgun and assault rifle, with even more available for purchase through the in-game shop. The shotgun is powerful, but its firing rate is poor and could leave you hanging. The pistol is better for accuracy, while the machine gun carries a rather large clip of weaker bullets.
Keep in mind, though, that you can level up these weapons through damage, clip size and body, improving accuracy and durability with your shots. It's recommended you use as much in-game currency to level these up, because they'll really help you with challenges later on in the game.
What's the best way to get a high score in Gunfinger?
A combination of headshots/bullseyes and combo shots is the best way to go. You can do this by stringing together shots on zombies and targets as collectively as you can, while keeping the meter running as long as you can between reloads. At first, this may be strenuously difficult due to your low reload rate, but as the game goes on, you'll be able to improve your weapon.
Just keep upgrading and working on your shots, and eventually, you'll build a score that your friends will be envious of.
Do I need to pay for anything in Gunfinger?
If you want to get the heavy upgrades right away - or open up the shop with more accessibility - you'll need to buy gold and coins. To do this, simply head into the shop and pay anywhere from $1.99 to $49.99, depending on how much you need. It's best to see how much you earn through the game first before dropping money.
In addition, you'll need stamina to enter new stages. You'll have a somewhat full meter to start with, and the option to expand it if you choose, but once you run out, you'll either need to wait over time for it to refill, or pay five gold. Keep in mind that a purchase in the shop can also refill it for no charge, and you can log in to Facebook for a one-time boost.
