>ENTER KILLJOY

EDITOR’S NOTE: These notes were found among the files of Killjoy. They’re here without alteration. The first file is undated, but there’s good reason to believe it was written to roast Brimstone.

OK Brimstone, I read your Beginner’s Guide. Maybe too long. All you needed to say was—have me on your team! 

I know you like that thing you do when you yell at the sky, but with me, tactics beat firepower. So, let me remind you how I’ve already thought of everything.

ALARMBOT

Equip and deploy a bot that hunts down enemies who dare to get in range. When my killer robot friend reaches its target...boom! Enemies who get hit are temporarily vulnerable to double damage from all sources. Hah, so fun.

Hold equip if you want to recall your deployed bot.

TURRET

Sometimes it's good to plant some roots. Deploy a turret that fires at enemies within its 180 degree cone. Hold equip to recall the deployed turret.

With my turret, I can hold an area pretty well myself while the others cover the angles I can't.

NANOSWARM

OK check this out. Throw the grenade. When it lands, it goes quiet. Then, activate the Nanoswarm to deploy a damaging swarm of nanobots and catch the enemy crying.

I love this trick!

LOCKDOWN

You’ll have to adjust your timing for the windup, but once you get this device going, it detains all enemies caught in its radius for about 8 seconds. Yeah, enemies can destroy it—except I built plenty more.

I love robots but that doesn’t mean I am one. That tech is only as good as my skill. So analyze, then improve. Meine güte...I’m starting to sound like you, Brimstone.

Hey, if all that doesn’t work out—just remember to delete my hard drive.
