DLC

According to the initial Steam Greenlight pitch, the game will see some DLC developed in the future. All DLC will be free for everyone who owns the game regardless of when the game was purchased.

The first free DLC patch titled "Tasty Walls" launched on the 28th of February and contained the following:

  • New unlocks and grades.
  • CTF game mode.
  • Previous levels optimized for CTF play.
  • Two completely new maps.
  • Worldwide and friends leaderboards.

The patch also brings smaller changes such as weapon, perk and level balancing, better player spawning, improved votemap panel, a new option to restart matches, improved admin tools and bug fixes.

Unlike most modern shooters Strike Vector has all of its 8 weapons unlocked from the start. You can equip two weapons, one on each side of your ship in any type of combination.

Carbine

Fires fast high damage rockets with low splash damage and a rate of fire.

Gatling

Performs best in close encounters at low-to-mid range. As it has infinite ammo there is never a need to reload.

Homing Missiles

Medium damage missiles with the ability to lock onto targets.

LMG

Faster and more accurate then the Gatling Gun but does not have infinite ammo per magazine.

Plasma Gun

Deals the most damage in the game but requires a lot of precision to use effectively.

Rocket Launcher

Slower then the carbine but deals massive damage and has large splash damage.

Shotgun

Very effective at close range with its large damage and high spread.

Swarm Missiles

These missiles with automatically seek out and hit the closest target.
