Monday Night Combat walkthrough video guides from the developers (XBLA)

Monday Night Combat walkthrough logo
Welcome to the Monday Night Combat walkthrough for the competitive, class-based, third-person shooter game on Xbox Live Arcade from Uber Entertainment.

Monday Night Combat is the most popular lethal sport of the future! It blends intense combat, finishing moves, and gameshow-like challenges and rewards to produce an action experience unlike any other. Why fight for “honor” or “duty” when you can fight for the real American dream — cash, fame and endorsements?

Up first is a complete 14 minute multiplayer match of Crossfire with developer commentary featuring the Tank character.



Part 2 of the Developer Walkthrough series. This time they show off the Support class in a join in progress Crossfire match in the LaseRazor Arena. Support class is a healer and an tech combined together with a Heal/Hurt Gun for a primary weapon and a deadly close range shotgun for a secondary. His four upgradable skills include Hack, Firebase, Air Strike and a passive Support skill.

Hack allows Support to enhance any built turrets as well as turn an enemy turret into a friendly at higher levels. Firebase is a transforming throwable turret that can be placed anywhere. It will heal Support and teammates when upgraded. Air Strikes can be called with a throwable sticky beacon that can be attached to arena surfaces as well as other characters. Support’s passive skill upgrades his armor as well as enhance robots around him in a given range. We also show how Juicing can be used to get through enemy defenses.

Assassin Scouting Report

Scared of speed, stealth and cunning? Afraid of light bending around your enemies? Hate the confusion of wondering where your prey went? Not appreciative of blades? Like words? Then Assassin is what you need to watch out for! The Monday Night Combat Assassin is the scalpel in a world of chainsaws. She is the answer to those annoying questions. She is the reason Pros wake up in a cold sweat. She’s a ghost, an enigma, the whisper of something sinister coming and she’s a chick. This season the Assassin is why you need to watch your back.

You want to avoid being another notch on the Assassin’s hilt, right? Remember these things:
1. Her blades are deadly, keep her distance. If she’s shooting shurikens at you, keep your distance, watch wall bounces and hope for the best.
2. You can’t out run her. So kill her fast!
3. Be observant, watch for the warble and listen for the hum of her cloak. If all else fails, get a tank and light her up!
4. If she smoke bombs you, look to the skies. Better yet, take her down before she has a chance to smoke bomb you then laugh hysterically.
Most of all remember that chicks with swords are deadly. Chicks with swords who eat bacon are just plain scary.

Sniper Scouting Report

The Monday Night Combat Sniper isn’t your run-of-the-mill sniper. You won’t go lying in a puddle getting your ghillie suit wet and muddy. You’ll be ducking behind unbreakable glass barriers, avoiding assassins and looking for crowd approval. You need to stay alive and be effective because you’re the sniper and what will the rest of the team do without you?

Remember these few points for being an elite Sniper:
1. Head shots rule. Double head shots are even better.
2. When in doubt, SMG them to death. When in doubt about the SMG, grapple their $#@!
3. Flak is good against turrets and robots. Guns are good against players. Taunts are good against everyone.
4. Traps can protect your sniping spot. Pay attention for the cold chill in the air and the amazing urge to frag someone who can’t move.
5. Grapple kills are crowd pleasing, throwing an SMG at your enemy as the kill shot is just embarrassing.
Boom. Head shot.

Here’s a video that shows of each of the six character classes of Monday Night Combat XBLA. Each Pro’s primary and secondary weapons as well as their various skills and grapples are shown in full awesomeness. You’ll also get to see how characters upgrade during gameplay by spending all that hard earned robot busting cash.

Character Bios:

Assault
The Assault is the closest thing Monday Night Combat has to a big play man. He is the center of attention always, and the unofficial leader of the pack. He is most often seen driving the attack while dazzling the crowd with his acrobatic plays and daring-do.

Notable DNA:
Riddick Bowe, Princess Diana, David Beckham, Benny Hill

Likes:
Gallery openings, Egyptian silk, VIP rooms, slapping bald men on the head

Dislikes:
art, near white caviar served in anything other than a 24-karat gold ramkin

Gunner
The Gunner is slow and thoughtful, and very rarely gives into any sort of panic or excitement. He is protective of his teammates; often the only way to get any sort of rise out of him is for an opponent to score an especially vicious kill.

Notable DNA:
Sumo wrestler Chiyonofuji Mitsugu, Otis, a prize winning yak, 1988 Washington Redskins offensive line, Lord Byron

Likes:
coral reefs, ukulele jams, poetry of Lord Byron

Dislikes:
large cities, crowds, shopping for pants

Sniper
All who take the field of Monday Night Combat fear the Sniper. Even other Snipers fear them. Some even fear themselves. While he means well, the Sniper is brusque and short-tempered, especially when he feels teammates arent listening to him during combat.

Notable DNA:
Hardcore gamer champions from MLG, WCG and WSVG.

Deadly, quiet, invisible. The Assassin has become one of the most popular combatants on MNC due to her acrobatic kills and cool cloaking ability.

Notable DNA:
Mary Lou Retton, Michelle Yeoh, Charlotte Corday

Likes:

Dislikes:
rampant consumerism, cowardice, arrogance, being owned

Tank
The Tank is a modern day grunt, a blue-collar warrior who is fearless in battle and who relishes his role as the point of attack. On the field of combat he is gruff, crude and doesnt care who knows it. Off the field however he is as vulnerable and sensitive as they come. He has a great deal of insecurity regarding his size, looks and lack of social graces especially with the opposite sex.

Notable DNA:
Ray Lewis, Jesse Ventura, Kimbo Slice

bar brawls, women with tattoos, compliments
