Grim is an online first person shooter. The game contains classic modes like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and a unique team oriented mode called Breach. You can read more about Breach in the Highlight section below.

Highlight: Breach

In Breach two teams compete in 7 rounds, each lasting a maximum of 3 minutes. Every round the Insurgents (attackers) try to reach the objective with as many survivors as possible. The path is blocked by several sealed doors that must be breached in order to reach the final objective. Pressing a button will initiate the breach of a sealed door, but this process can be paused by the Persuasive Forces (defenders). Both teams will have to focus on defending the buttons, whether it's to initiate the breach or to prevent it from being breached. The more Insurgents (attackers) reach the end, the more Credits the Insurgent (attacking) team will earn. Before each new round every player may buy upgrades and items to enhance themselves for the upcoming rounds.

Highlight: Leap

Leap is one of our unique player abilities that allows you to leap great distances and thereby avoiding enemy fire or reaching an otherwise unreachable area. Using Leap costs Energy, which is one of the main player resources that regenerate over time.


Credits & Upgrades

Whenever you do something beneficial to your team (such as killing an opponent or completing an objective) you are rewarded with Credits. Credits are used to buy upgrades, these upgrades can improve your statistics (such as Health), unlock new abilities or items. Abilities and items can be just as beneficial to your team, choosing upgrades that best suit you and your teamís play style will greatly improve the effectiveness of your entire team.
