Bleeding Edge Beginners Guide
Bleeding Edge pits two teams of four players against one another in objective based melee combat. This is a great game to play with your friends as it requires you to coordinate as a team to be successful. Check out our Bleeding Edge Beginners Guide to find out more about the game and also helpful strategies that will enable you to win battles.
Bleeding Edge currently has 12 characters, all of which are divided into one of three different classes. These are damage fighters which have quick abilities that typically focus on one target, support fighters that have capabilities to buff and heal allies, and tank fighters which are able to withstand a beating and generally have more area-of-effect attacks. Aside from having their own characteristics and abilities each fighter can have a unique loadout created via cybernetic mods. All mods are earnable through gameplay and they will allow you to tweak builds to suit your playstyle, counter enemies, or capitalise on the team’s composition. A team in Bleeding Edge consists of four players and ideally for it to be successful it should be balanced. This means having at least one of each class of character in your team. To create a balanced team there will be times you may have to play the class your team mates have not chosen so make sure you are familiar with each of the three different classes for when such an occassion arises.
If you are new to the game it is advised that you take the time to complete Bleeding Edge's three basic tutorials and one advanced tutorial as these will enable you to learn the intricacies of the game and giving you the opportunity to play the different characters during combat scenarios. Bleeding Edge features environmental hazards that are unique in every map and can be used to your advantage during combat, these include being able to yank opponents into an electric fence, charge them into the path of an oncoming train, or trap them in a raging fire pit. Always seek the higher ground whenever possible as this will give you more options for both attack and escape than being on the ground floor.
Bleeding Edge uses sound to help you determine the importance of certain actions and identify threats during a brawl so it is recommended that you wear headphones if you have them as they will enable you to discern noise easier. If you have headphones that have a mic attached it will be useful for the ping system that allows you to communicate and coordinate with your team.
