FAU-G is out now for Android with a download size of around 500MB. Before you jump into Bengaluru-based Ncore Games’ action title, here are a few tips and tricks to make your trek through Galwan Valley a treat. From the weapons you use to the enemies you encounter here are some things you should know before you play FAU-G.
FAU-G Controls and Sensitivity
If you find FAU-G’s default controls unresponsive you can tweak their sensitivity in the settings. These include the option to customise aim settings too. Useful to come to grips with its weapons. Speaking of which…
FAU-G Weapon Types
Aside from using your fists, FAU-G has three other kinds of weapons. These are axes, pipes, and clubs. Each of them have their own range of attack. Clubs have the shortest reach while pipes have the longest and axes are somewhere in between. Paying attention to the weapon you pick up and what you’re using can be the difference between life and death. We found clubs and axes useful in one on one encounters while pipes allowed us to keep some of the game’s tougher enemies at bay from a distance.
FAU-G Weapons: Max Damage and Durability
Each weapon in FAU-G has its own statistics, namely Max Damage and Durability. What this means is the damage they do to enemies will differ and they will all eventually break. Durability is indicated with a bar below your weapon that turns from green to yellow and finally red, letting you know your weapon is close to breaking while Max Damage or attack power as it is known in other games is signified by the numbers that float over your enemies’ heads indicating the amount of damage you’ve done. Smart use of weapons and their attributes will make it easier for you to best the game’s tougher encounters.
FAU-G Block Button Is Your Friend
In our FAU-G review in progress we lamented the lack of a dedicated dodge button. In its place is a block button, allowing you to use your hands or weapons to cushion enemy attacks at the cost of durability. Useful when you have hordes of combatants raining body blows on you. And how can you tell if an enemy is about to attack, the next point has you covered.
How to Tell When Enemies Attack in FAU-G
Enemy soldiers in FAU-G glow red when they are about to attack you. If you time it right, you can attack them first, leaving them stunned or you can block their attack. Mastering when to block or launch a counter-attack will be crucial to get through the game.
With multiplayer and more single-player content on the way, it’ll be interesting to see how Ncore builds on the game’s combat. For more on FAU-G keep it locked to IGN India.
