Guardians Frontline: Latest Update Lets Players Crush Enemies Using a Tank

Vehicles & Tech Update VirtualAge

Guardians Frontline is a promising sci-fi VR shooter developed by VirtualAge. The premise is simple: you play as a Guardian who is tasked to defend the galactic federation against alien threats. While this game can be played solo, you can also play Guardians Frontline with your friends thanks to its co-op mode. But if you're the competitive type, there's an 8v8 PvP mode for you to enjoy!

Anyway, the company released Update 1 recently, aka Vehicles & Tech, which added tons of new content and improvements. There are two new vehicles that you can ride in this patch, the Tank and the Hover Bike. The former is a two-seater armored vehicle that can easily crush aliens that come your way. The latter is a light vehicle that you can use to get to a desired location in no time.

Another neat addition to the game is the Medic Gun. This weapon has three unique features. First, you can use this to eliminate enemies by draining their HP to zero. Second, it can repair units and cure allies. And lastly, it can revive fallen guardians with its projectile.

For improvements, Guardians Frontline now has a social tab that lists your friends in-game. Moreover, teleport points are now numbered in the mini-map for better legibility.
