FZ9: Timeshift is an Android game that has been getting rave reviews on Google Play. First-person shooter games don’t always mix so well with tablets and mobiles, but FZ9: Timeshift is certainly one to note thanks largely to its unique time-shifting gameplay mechanic. The game stars the government operative Mak who is sent on various missions to defeat the AS terrorists.
FZ9: Timeshift is freely available at Google Play. You can also add the game to iOS devices by downloading it from its iTunes page. Here are a few handy tips for completing all FZ9: Timeshift’s missions and raking in Battle Points (BP).
Stop Moving When the Action Heats Up
Time slows down when you stand still in FZ9: Timeshift. That’s a novel bullet time gameplay mechanic which takes a little getting used to at first. However, slowing down time is the key to completing FZ9. Terrorists, zombies and bullets move very, very slowly when Mak stops moving, which gives you a crucial advantage in missions.
The important thing to note is that moving Mak, not his gun target, speeds up time. So stop moving when you’re taking on dozens of enemies at once. When the terrorists are moving in slow motion, you can then quickly target and fire at them without speeding the game up. Thus, by slowing down the action, you can fire off a multitude of bullets before the terrorists have hardly got a shot in. Then rush for cover when you eventually do see some bullets heading your way.
Press the Automatic Target Button
FZ9 includes a target button on the left that you can press to automatically target enemies. As such, pressing that button ensures better shot accuracy. You’re almost guaranteed accurate shots when you stop moving, press the automatic target button and fire quickly. So it’s better to press that button than manually aim and shoot.
Aim for the Head
However, automatic targeting won’t usually get a headshot. Taking enemies out with headshots get you additional bonus points, which you need to upgrade your armory. Furthermore, you can take out zombies in one shot instead of the usual two with headshots. As such, headshots can also save you ammunition on missions that include zombies. So aim for the head when you’re playing cycle missions to clock up more BP and save ammunition.
Take Out Multiple Enemies With Double and Triple Kills
Double and triple kills are when you take out two or three enemies at once. Those double and triple kills give you additional BP so you can upgrade your armory more quickly. Furthermore, killing multiple enemies at once with a single shot or grenade also saves ammunition in missions. So it’s always worth taking out enemies with double and triple kills.
To do so, you’ll need to have a shotgun, grenades or rocket launcher at your disposal. Those are the best weapons to pull off double and triple kills with. Fire a shot with a shotgun or rocket launcher or toss a grenade when an approaching group of enemies are huddled very close together. Then you’ll probably take out a few of them at once to get a double or triple kill bonus. To pull off double or triple kills with other weapons, fire at fuel tanks that explode. Firing at a tank will set off an explosion that might take out a group of nearby foes.
Pick Up Sniper Rifles Whenever You Can
Sniper rifles are the best guns in Timeshift. Those are great guns because they include sniper scopes that zoom in on targets. Their sniper scopes ensure the best shot accuracy so that you can take out enemies from distance. So make sure you always pick up sniper rifles on missions. In addition, get yourself a sniper rifle with gold so that you can start missions with the gun.
Throw Guns at Enemies
Instead of tossing guns down when you run out of ammo, throw them at enemies. You can take out both terrorists and zombies by throwing guns at them. It’s better to throw them at unarmed zombies as you can’t get shot at close quarters. Furthermore, tossing guns at zombies will also save you ammunition as it usually takes two shots to take them out without headshots. So whenever you run out, or low on, of ammo, toss the gun at an approaching enemy.
Rack Up More BP on the 16TH CYCLE MISSION
You’ll need to upgrade your armory to unlock chapters in the game. As such, Timeshift includes numerous cycle missions in which players can rack up BP to upgrade their armories with. Those missions provide you with variable amounts of Battle Points.
The 16th cycle mission (from the left), shown in the snapshot directly below, is one of the best missions to boost your BP total with. That provides you with a fixed 6,500 BP bonus and 20 terrorists to take out, which you can do with sniper rifles. As such, that cycle mission gives you more BP than most of the others.
Those tips will help you defeat the AS in FZ9: Timeshift. Good luck, but you probably won’t need that much luck now!
