Posted: July 25, 2012 by thegamergod in Game of the Week, Warhawk
 This post will show you guys all the weapons, vehicles and even weapons of the vehicles available in Warhawk!
The Weapons: Here are the weapons (along with pros and cons) in Warhawk:
-Pistol: Unlimited Ammo, Short Range
-Combat Knife: Instant Kill, Melee Only
-Rifle: Rapid-Fire, Low Damage, Medium Range
-Flamethrower: Severe Damage, Short Range, Great Area Damage
-Sniper Rifle: Longest Range, Low Fire Rate, Very Powerful
-Rocket Launcher: Lock-On, Can Kill Self
-Grenades: Fast-Exploding, Can Kill Self
-Proximity Mines: Detonate When People Walk By, Can Be Destroyed With Any Weapon
-Binoculars: Artillery Strike, Takes Time to Lock-On
Personally my favorite weapon is the Binoculars because they are so powerful and all the enemy can do is run for their lives when they see the laser at their feet!  Its also very fun to light people on fire!!! 🙂
The vehicles available in Warhawk are:
-Tank: Only one person can ride in the tank, It is very strong (+2 hits from a rocket launcher)
-AA-Gun: Fires shrapnel, Only good against planes
-Missile Turret: Locks onto any vehicle, Very powerful, Slow lock on rate, Warhawk must use chaff to avoid missiles
-Truck: Seats 3 people, Turret on back, Rapid fire and powerful
-Warhawk: Huge arsenal of weapons(see below), Large amounts of control, Easy to land, No parachute available
(The jet pack is also available as part of a DLC)
Here are all the available weapons/abilities for the Warhawk:
-Machine Guns: These have unlimited ammo, but can overheat and can’t lock-on.
-Swarm Missiles: You can fire up to 8 or these at a time, has a lock-on feature, but is easy to evade.
-Homing Missiles: These can lock-on to enemies, and are hard to evade, but you must hold a “bead” on the player for a certain amount of time to complete the lock-on.
-TOW Missile: A player-controlled missile that does massive damage, drawbacks are limited fuel and that you have to put the Warhawk in hover mode to use it.
-Cluster Bomb: A bomb that spreads out 25 explosive across an area, effective against ground troops and ground vehicles, but precise timing is needed.
-Aerial Mine: A proximity mine in the area, deals a ton of damage, but just floats in one place and is easy to destroy.
-Energy Weapon: A chargeable weapon that can deal plenty of damage to any soldier and stays in the area for a while to kill the remainder, but has limited energy.
-Avionics: Turn your plane invisible, to both the naked eye and the radar, but severely limited in time, once you attack, it stops working.
-Chaff: A spray of foild that shakes off any locks that other players have on you. A valuable defense item.
Here are all the weapons and awesome gear available in Warhawk so go use it!

1st Game of the Week!

Posted: July 24, 2012 by thegamergod in Game of the Week, Games to Get..., Warhawk

Hey guys!  Firstly I know its a Tuesday and I’m really sorry to keep you all eagerly waiting as I know you all are for our first game of the week!  I’m planning to introduce the Game of the Week tell you why its our pick for this week and give you some secret tips and advice now and through the week so join in with comments and our debates which will be coming up!

This weeks game is Warhawk!  I chose Warhawk for this week because not only is it great game and pretty unknown but it was pretty much my playground for shooting stuff/(people) and introduced me to COD and Battlefield!  Warhawk is a mixture between COD and Battlefield 3 with vehicles like jets, tanks and AA-guns but also allows 4 people to be able to play online at the same time!  Meaning its great for all your friends to play and co-op tactics!  Unforgivably, Warhawk is only for PS3 so you Xbox gamers better buy a PS3 or go to a friends house because this really is a great game!

Pros- Warhawk does not only have lots of different vehicles but a wide range of EPIC weapons including the Binoculars which call in an airstrike where ever you point and really powerful landmines which stick to everything!  As before it is also 4 player online and you are also able to host your own online game for others to join with any game mode, map of your choice and lots of other options or join anyone else’s!  The maps are also really diverse and cool and cut off different parts depending on the game mode to change the tactics and key points!

Cons- There aren’t a lot of things which should be changed in this game but here are a few things which you’ll notice! Firstly unlike COD and BF3 you cant make a class or personalize your character other than his appearance meaning there are no perks or gun attachments etc. although you can level up to unlock different emblems,the frustrating thing about this is you have to find and get guns around the maps and start out with the default rifle rather than having a gun you want meaning you are more reluctant to risk your self with good guns.  The graphics are also very unrealistic but its made up for by the 4 people online and there is also a small amount of auto aim which you can turn on and off for the rifles meaning its easier for noobs to kill you and that cover isn’t very effective.  Finally there isn’t a campaign or any story line in the game meaning it lacks any background story for those who always play the campaign back to front but it also means there is a more hardcore/intense multi-player experience which personally I am more keen for!

Overall Warhawk is a really fun and co-operative game which gives you a breather and a different take from COD and BF and I’m proud to nominate it the honorific title of game of the week.  Be sure to recommend your favorite games which you think should be the game of the week or ask any questions about the game!
