How to Play Zero Build Horde Rush
Defeat the hordes of different Cube Monsters, survive each round, and defeat the Caretaker at the end! The most essential part of this zero build mode is to get as much weaponry and ammo as you can at the start of each round, and use teamwork to eliminate the monsters while protecting each other.
Players have 150 seconds at the start of round one to loot as much as possible before the monsters appear, spawned by giant obelisks. These obelisks should be destroyed to prevent more monsters spawning there. This first round lasts 3 minutes, after which all monsters will despawn and any eliminated players will respawn ready to gear up for the next round.
The next round sees the storm circle shrink and move, and the variety of monsters increases to include Poison and Ice Fiends, and Exploding Brutes! When this round is over, players have time to loot once more, and find Multiplier Crystals which increase any points gained.
Each following round sees stronger monsters to defeat such as the Cube Assassin with their Sideways Minigun, and Mega Brutes who are very strong versions of regular Brutes.
In the final round, players have to defeat The Caretaker, a giant monster who can fling players backwards and cause a lot of damage. If players can work together to shoot at the Caretaker’s weak spots, he can be eliminated and the team win!
The Horde Rush Quests were released on November 1st and are up until the 15th. Jump in while you can!
