1. Aim For The Head
Any self-respecting shooter game will know the value of headshots. Mr Gun rewards you with bonus points and coins for every headshot you make. The more headshots you make in a row, the bigger the rewards will be. On top of that, it is also easier to take out your opponents if you hit their head. It is a little trickier to pull off, but the payoff is more than worth the trouble. Keep practicing your aim until you can consistently make these shots in order to maximize both your score and your earnings.
2. Use The Stairs To Aim
Are you struggling with your aim? One easy way to aim better is to use the stairs as a gauge. Use the stairs as a visual marker on where you need to aim. Adjust your weapon until the path of the bullet is almost parallel to the stairs. This will usually guarantee a headshot. What you need to master is how to do this quickly. It will take a lot of adjustment in the beginning, but once it becomes second nature to you, headshots will become a lot easier.
3. Get More Coins, Here’s How
In Mr Gun you will be able to unlock a lot of weapons using coins, but it will cost you a lot. Each new weapon costs 250 coins. Since you only earn a handful after each run, it will take a while before you can unlock new weapons. If you want to make the process a little faster, you can go into the weapons menu and hit the video button to watch an advertisement. Each video you watch will reward you with 35 coins. Keep in mind, however, that not all weapons can be unlocked with coins. In fact, only the weapons on the first page of the store is available for purchase with coins.
4. Find The Perfect Weapon
There are a lot of weapons available in Mr Gun. Your default weapon is the USP-S. It is a pistol with high accuracy but low damage. It is a good starter for beginners, but since it lacks firepower, its usefulness drops off significantly as you progress in the game. The Evo-3, on the other hand, fires three shots at a time, dealing 2 damage points per shot. The damage does not sound as impressive, but since it is a spread shot, you will be able to deal damage even from poor angles. Each weapon has its own set of benefits and disadvantages, so make sure you carefully consider which one to use. It ultimately depends on your play style, but it helps to try out different ones until you find the perfect weapon for you.
5. Practice With Boss Minions
Bosses send out minions to deal with you before you progress further. They don’t really require a lot of skill since they go down after a single shot. That does not mean, however, that you should let your guard down. Boss minions are perfect for practicing your shots. Try to take down boss minions as though they are the boss. Continue to aim for headshots even if you know they will die with body shots. Your goal is to get yourself into the headshot groove, so you can easily continue your streak once you reach the boss. Headshots deal double damage on bosses. Practicing ahead of time will make it easier for you to take down the upcoming boss.
6. Never Miss During A Boss Battle
Even though headshots are extremely useful in boss battles, make sure you do not risk missing your target. It is better that you hit your target somewhere than miss completely. If you hit the boss anywhere on his body, he will simply jump up to the next step. If you miss, however, the boss will shoot you and kill you instantly. No matter what happens, make sure you never miss during a boss battle. You will always have another chance to make a headshot as long as you stay alive.
7. Timing Is Important
The steps are not just there for decoration. Take note of the number of steps between you and your target. The shorter the distance, the easier it will be to line up a shot. More steps between the two of you means more adjustment time for your aim. Keeping track of the number of steps will help you time your shots properly to ensure that they land. Shooting recklessly will only make it more difficult for you to land good shots. Take your time and wait for the perfect opportunity.
8. Try The Free Elite Access
Mr Gun offers a premium access that you can purchase using real money. This access gives you a good weapon that is effective against all enemies. You also get added armor that can help you survive even if you miss a shot. Finally, it also removes all the ads from the game, allowing you to play in peace without any problems. The catch here is that Elite Access is a subscription, not a one-time purchase. You will need to renew this if you want to continue enjoying the benefits.
If you want to figure out if Elite Access is worth your money, you can start out with the free trial. The game is currently offering a free three-day trial of their Elite Access. Use this time to consider whether or not you want to spend real money in the game. If you feel like the benefits you get are worth the cost, feel free to purchase it for yourself. Otherwise, make sure you cancel before the three days are up to keep yourself from getting charged.
9. Check Out The Airplane Mode
Spending real money in a mobile game is not really something most people would want to do. If you are one of those people, but you want to play the game without being plagued by ads, you have an option. Just disconnect your device from the internet or put it in airplane mode. Since the ads are stored online, the game will not be able to access them, so nothing will pop up while you play. The down side of this is that you also will lose access to the ad offers that give you coins and continue chances.
10. Master Using At Least One Weapon
There are a few dozen weapons available in the game. That does not mean, however, that you need to learn how to use them all. In fact, you can go through the entire game with just one weapon. Once you find the perfect weapon, use it repeatedly until you have mastered it. Having mastered one weapon is enough to get you through the game. Just try to pick a rare one, so you can get the best stats.
Lock and load, it is time for some epic 2D action in Ketchapp’s new game Mr Gun! Follow our cheats, tips and tricks and you will be raking in the points in no time!
