Toaster Arena Playtest: New Players’ Guide (V0.2.1)

Here is a basic guide for beginners, this guide was writed based on V0.2.1.


General tips

You can enable toggle sprint in settings -> game, which will let you sprint at all times
To go into the test map click Multiplayer -> Create Lobby Loca (test1)

You can create and save custom weapon loadouts
You can make more loadouts by clicking Add Slot
To apply a loadout on your next revive click the loadout box itself

All pistols except for the Gunslinger are fully automatic
Snipers will deal less damage the closer someone is to you (up to 8 dmg)

The fastest way to move is to slide and jump to maintain speed
You can automatically crouch again while in the air by holding the crouch button (ctrl)
Staying in the air will reduce your speed so only double jump when sliding down a slope/dodging
Slopes affect how sliding works, avoid sliding uphill

You can reset your jumps by climbing/wall running
Climbing up instead of jumping up a wall is the fastest way to move vertically
For some reason, using both jumps before wall running makes you go faster
