Nuclear Outrun: Cheats and tips
Ready for the apocalypse? Nuclear Outrun is out now on the App Store, and puts you in charge of a heavily armored vehicle, blasting through the undead and grabbing all the survivors left in the ravaged city. Struggling to get on top of the game? Check out our essential hints and tips for new players.
- Be very sparing with the use of ammunition - very often a single bullet will take out multiple zombies lying on the road ahead. Aim your first shot at the zombie nearest to you, and make that shot as early as possible. That way you'll be able to see which enemies are left over in good time.
- Get out of the starting vehicle as quickly as possible, but don't focus on grinding out new vehicles at the exclusion of everything else. A couple of upgrades in will see you good - after that, you can start improving your weapons bit by bit.
- Don't bother with the weapons of mass destruction unless you've got piles of real-world money to spend in the in-app purchase store. Powerful though these mega upgrades are, they can only be used a limited number of times, whereas other upgrades you make to vehicles and weapons are permanent, and give a benefit in every game you play.
- Get into the habit of viewing the survivors you've unlocked from the Survivors upgrade section of the menu screen. Some of these characters provide a special bonus, like giving you extra coins or improving armor, and switching to another survivor can be essential for surviving trickier missions.
