Loadout is a fast paced third-person shooter videogame developed by Edge of Reality. It is only available for PC via Steam. This multiplayer game is similar to Valve’s Team Fortress, as both the character models and thescenarios are cartoon-like and combats usually wind up with someone losing parts of their body to gunshot wounds. In fact, people say that Loadout is like Looney Tunes directed by Quentin Tarantino.
The gameplay mechanics of Loadout are common for the genre, but unlike most multiplayer shooter games out there, this one is played from a third-person perspective. You are free to dive-roll and sprint to avoid enemy attacks, but be careful when performing these actions, because they will reveal you on enemy radar.
One of the best things about this title is that, even though it offers in-game purchases, these can’t be used to earn additional power, so “Pay to Win” doesn’t apply to Loadout. You can buy Spacebux using real money, but those only give you access to character customization and cosmetic items. Of course you can develop new skills in the tech tree, increase the power of your weapons or craft new ones by using Blutes, an in-game currency earned only by playing Loadout matches.
Billions of Combinations
Loadout offers lots of combinations for you to create the perfect weapon. You have to pick different parts to make it work: the chassis determines what kind of projectiles your weapon will shoot. Rifles shoot regular bullets, Launchers fire rockets with big damage potential, Pulse fires barrages of fast projectiles and Beam fires a continuous ray of death. Once you have your chassis, you have to choose some parts that will make your weapon unique such as triggers, scopes, barrels or magazines.

There are different game modes in Loadout, split into casual and competitive modes. There are four casual modes that have different objectives and mechanics such as Death Snatch, which consist of picking up red Blutonium vials dropped by dead enemies to score points for your team, or Jackhammer, which consists of capturing the enemy’s hammer (capturing flags is for little girls) and take it back to your base as you protect your own hammer to score. Competitive fuses elements from casual modes to create the ultimate battle: Annihilation.
