1. Prioritize Steady Income
Thieves need a day job, too! It might seem exciting to just keep killing and stealing all the time, but you will not be able to conquer the city with just that. Any decent takeover scheme needs a proper foundation. You need to have a steady flow of income in order to expand your territory. Work on infiltrating businesses as soon as you can. You will have more room for pillaging once you have control of the city.
2. Watch Those Footprints
During your turn, you will see areas on the map with red footprints on them. These are locations that are visible to both you and your opponent. That means you should avoid sending your units that way unless you are planning to bait your opponent somehow. Of course, you should also keep your eyes peeled for any actions your opponent performs while in those areas. It might not happen often, but one mistake on your opponent’s part can help you win the game.
3. Different Maps Mean Different Objectives
There are several maps available in the game. You can also play multiple games at the same time if you can manage to keep track of what is going on in each map. Regardless, make sure you focus on the different objectives each map has to offer. There are objectives that are common among all maps, and you are free to aim for those. However, if you really want to gain an advantage, you should also secure objectives that are exclusive to each map. For example, the Masquerade map lets you earn more points if you manage to swipe some invites to a masquerade. Stealing cargo, on the other hand, gives you additional points on the Wharf map.
4. Focus On Victory Points
The only true goal in Antihero is victory. This is easy to forget with all that is going on in the match. The game has an extensive upgrade tree that can be fun to max out when you are ahead. Do not let that distract you from your goal to win the match. While you are running around, chasing after upgrades, your opponent could be quietly securing objectives. The game could end before you even realize what is going on. Stay focused, and don’t play around even if you are ahead.
