Thousand-Pace Interdiction Arcminute Sharpshooting Zone

Gameplay Tutorial

In Thousand-Pace Interdiction Arcminute Sharpshooting Zone, you will use special optical lenses to aim and shoot opponents.

Press the Aim button to start aiming. Aim at your targets and press the Shoot button to fire bullets at the target your lens is aimed at. Defeat all opponents to complete the challenge.

Ammunition is limited in some scenarios. Utilize the limited ammunition to defeat all enemies.

A High-Value Target may appear in certain scenarios. Defeat all enemies while protecting this target.

Adjust Horizontal Camera Sensitivity (Aimed Shot Mode) and Vertical Camera Sensitivity (Aimed Shot Mode) under Controls in the Settings menu to improve your ability to control your simulated shots.


Stage 1: Special Defense

I had marked all the positions of all enemies in each round above. You have a total of 50 bullets, and there are 17 enemies. Normal Hilichurls take 1 bullet in the head and will die instantly, but Mitachurl requires 2 to 3 bullets in the head before they will fall down.

Tips:

  • Before shooting the enemies, make sure to observe the surroundings and shoot the red Pyro barrels to create an explosion and kill a number of enemies at once.
  • When an enemy is running, you can wait until they stop before you start shooting again to not waste ammo.
  • Even if some enemies are hiding behind items, you can still aim for their heads.

Stage 2: Emergency Plans

In this stage, you need to focus on eliminating enemies while also protecting the balloon. You have 99 bullets here and there are 37 enemies. This time around, there are many mini-waves with 2-3 enemies with a small amount of the waves having 4-5 enemies. Since there are too many waves and little enemies in each wave, I won't mark their location as you won't have a problem spotting them, especially since the area is bright enough. Instead, I will note down lots of (obvious) tips below.

Tips:

  • When there are only Hilichurls in the wave, calm down and aim for them slowly to not waste ammo. Hilichurls that are using bows will not move so you will have time to attack them easily. Hilichurls that are bare-handed will move towards the balloon so your view might be hindered, but there is a small window where they stop moving and throw a tantrum so that's the perfect time to snipe them.
  • When Mitachurl starts to appear alongside Hilichurl, defeat the big guy first because their attacks deal more damage compared to Hilichurl. Remember that Mitachurls need to be shot twice to be defeated!
  • The most enemies that can appear in this challenge is a wave with 5 Hilichurls, but don't panic! Your objective is to make sure the balloon's HP stays above 50%, and since their attack does not scrap lots of damage (in addition to having a cooldown), you should be able to take them down one by one.
  • Use the red barrels! Use the red barrels! Use the red barrels! Important things need to be repeated thrice. With just one explosion, all enemies within the vicinity will be defeated instantly so be smart and use them.

Stage 3: Ineffectual Disguise

I had marked all the positions of all enemies in each round above. You have a total of 50 bullets, and there are 20 enemies. A new destructible is here which is a floating version of Pyro barrels. These barrels float around a fixed line so you have to time on when to shoot them so you can take a few enemies out in one bullet.


Stage 4: White Iron Duke

In this stage, you need to focus on eliminating enemies while also protecting the balloon. You have 99 bullets here and there are 41 enemies. This time around, there are many mini-waves with 2-3 enemies with a small amount of the waves having 4-5 enemies. Since there are too many waves and little enemies in each wave, I won't mark their location as you won't have a problem spotting them, especially since the area is bright enough. Instead, I will note down lots of (obvious) tips below.

  • When there are multiple enemies, memorize their locations beforehand and once you shoot one of them while waiting for the cooldown to end, don't zoom out from the lens but instead, move your sight to the next target. Once the cooldown ends, immediately shoot down the next enemy.
  • On some waves, there will be floating Pyro barrels. Whenever you see this item, immediately prioritize shooting this thing down instead of the enemies.

Xtreme Drive

Gameplay Tutorial

Stabilization Mekaballs automatically avoid testers and move in the opposite direction of an approaching tester.

Stabilization Mekaball's movement is influenced by all testers.

Use this characteristic to send as many Stabilization Mekaballs as possible into your zone within the time limit (when you spawn in the arena, your zone is right in front of you).

In addition to the Stock Balls, Glitz Balls will also spawn. Stock Balls are worth 1 point each, and Glits Balls are worth 7 points each.

Jump Boosters can be found in the testing ground. Pick one up to perform an extreme jump that goes higher and farther. It's perfect for rapidly moving to the other side of a Stabilization Mekaball, so use it well.

The test will be carried out in one of five locations at random.


Into the Frame

In Into the Frame, film several shots according to the director's requirements and compile them into a video.
