If you like to drive around on fancy automobiles, if you like to wreak havoc with vehicles, Rebel Riders is the game for you. From the house of King, the developers behind the world-famous casual game Candy Crush, this game is a vehicle combat action game where disgruntled toys battle it out in the arena and blow off some steam with high-octane fun. It is currently available for playtesting in a few select countries. In this Rebel Riders beginners guide, we will discuss how new players can get into the game, and explain how everything works.
Introducing the basics of Rebel Riders
The gameplay revolves around a bunch of toys. These toys are misfits and have been treated badly by their owners. To take out their frustration, they decide to battle it out in an underground arena. They call themselves Rebels, and along with their vehicles, they destroy each other in the arena. Three members from each team start on the opposing sides of the Arena.
The Arena is a vast ground on which the matches are held. All of the Rebels spawn in here and then engage in battle.
In the beginning, we start with the following three vehicles:
- Boomer: Boomer is a tank in every sense of the word. It is a fully functioning tank vehicle, and along with that, it has very high health. We can distract the enemy with Boomer while our DPS teammates deal the damage. It also has an ultimate ability that fires several rounds all around us, dealing a decent amount of damage.
- Ranger: A mix of a tank and fighter. It has a medium amount of health and also puts out high medium-high damage. Its ultimate is a bubble shield that protects from damage for a short duration.
- Lazer Stryke: A purely DPS-based vehicle. It has very low health, but the highest amount of damage among the three. Lazer Stryke is melee, so you have to get into the range of enemies to deal significant damage.
With these vehicles being a bit easier to play, they are a great introduction to the style of play in Rebel Riders.
There are a lot of different Rebels that we can collect in this game. A toy duck by the name of Nuke is the one we start playing with.
Currently, since Rebel Riders are in the playtest phase, the developers are giving out the Premium version of the Rebel Pass for free. The Rebel Pass is just like any other game pass and has a Free and Premium section. The Free section contains easily obtainable rewards while the Premium section contains the more rare rewards.
Rebel Riders features five primary game modes as of now. Let’s take a look at what they are:
- Team Deathmatch: Play fast-paced 3v3 multiplayer battles to the death. Team Deathmatch has a time limit. This mode features two teams of 3 players each, trying to get a kill score of 10 in a match. The first team to get to 10 kills wins, or the team with the most kills when the timer ends wins. This is the first unlocked game mode.
- Stash the Cash: Collect coins or steal them from enemies in this game mode. Like in Team Deathmatch, 2 teams of 3 players each battle it out to stash 10 coins in their respective piggy bank, The first team to stash 10 coins wins, or the team with the most number of coins stashed when the timer ends will win. Unlocked at 10 trophies.
- Bomb the Base: Bring down your rival’s base with powerful bombs. Destroying the enemy’s base will grant the win to a team, or the team that has brought the most destruction to the enemy’s base wins. Unlocked at 200 trophies.
- Battle Toyale: Be the last car standing in this vehicle-based twist on PvP battle royale. A classic Battle Royale mode. The last toy standing wins. Unlocked at 50 trophies.
- Hangout: Meet other Players and join the online community. Battle. Race. Drive. Become a part of the Rebel Riders club today! This is the social hub of Rebel Riders. Hang out with friends here, make new friends, and have friendly battles against them. You have to be invited by the other players to hang out in their arena.
Collect Toykens (Rebel Pass Tokens) by completing different challenges. They involve anything from killing a specific number of players to winning a match with a vehicle in a game mode that is not that suited to that game mode.
Right from the start, we start progressing along a Trophy Road called the Victory Road. It is very similar to the one in Brawl Stars. We get a bunch of cash, we unlock new game modes, get upgrade parts for our vehicles, and unlock new vehicles as well.
Understanding the in-game Resources and Accessories
Rebel Riders has two currencies that are usable in-game.
- Bills: This is the free currency. We can obtain bills through the free Premium Rebel Pass, from Victory Road, etc.
- Diamonds: Diamonds are the premium currency of Rebel Riders. They can only be obtained via the Premium Rebel Pass and bought with real money.
Rebel Riders has various skins for its vehicles and Rebels. These skins can only be bought with Diamonds.
Rebel Riders Beginners Guide: Tips and Tricks
Here are some of our tips in our Rebel Riders Beginners Guide to help you, newbies, to kickstart your journey.
- Always complete the daily challenges in the Challenges tab.
- Unlock all game modes as soon as possible, so that once they are all unlocked, you can use the easier modes to rank up further.
- The Rebels we choose don’t add anything to how we play the games. Only the vehicles we take to the field are important, so it is okay if you don’t have different Rebels.
- You will get a bunch of upgrade points for different vehicles from Victory Road, make sure to stick to one or two vehicles you like, and only upgrade them with your bills.
- In Team Deathmatch, always be near a teammate, so you can help them, and only be alone if you are confident in your ability to kill an enemy all by yourself.
