Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef from Rogueside, under license from Games Workshop is a 2D action game for up to four players on Nintendo Switch. It offers a fun run ‘n’ gun experience in which you’ll be part of the mighty Green Tide as you lead an Ork invasion on Luteus Prime, as you shoot and bash anyone foolish enough to stand on your path. It’s a hand-drawn, action-packed adventure in which you’ll use the different weapons at your disposal to wreak havoc, showing everyone how powerful you are, either on your own or in local or online multiplayer. The game can be played in one of three difficulty settings: Easy, Normal, or Hard.
There are four different classes to choose from in Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef, with each one offering a different toolkit that is true to the lore of Warhammer 40,000. Choosing the right class to complement your gaming style is a must so that you can make the most of their passive and active skills. What are your options? You can play as Stormboy, Flash Git, Beast Snagga Boy, and Weird Boy.
Stormboy is the jumpiest of the bunch, having a Storm Dash that allows him to dash further while making enemies on its path catch fire. It also has a cluster bomb that spawns smaller bombs on impact. The Flash Git has a small chance of not consuming ammo when firing weapons, and it also has a burna bomb that will cover the ground on fire after it explodes. The Beast Snagga Boy has a beasty spear that replaces his melee weapon, allowing you to throw it, and have it explode on impact. It also has a bomb squig that will walk towards enemies before going BOOM! The Weirdboy can channel the mighty WAAAGH! to unleash lighting melee attacks that can stun enemies, as well as a shokka bomb that will stun enemies with a burst of electricity.
The game will remind you of old-school games like the beloved Contra and Metal Slug series since you’ll be moving from point A to point B shooting at everything. You’ll move with the left analog stick or the D-Pad, aiming all around you with the right one and shooting with the ZR button. You can press the X button to select the next available weapon or hold it down to open the weapon wheel. Press the Y button, and you can reload. The ZL button will be for jumping, and the B button will be used for dashing. If an enemy gets too close for comfort, you can press the R button for a melee attack. The L button will allow you to launch a Stikkbomb. And once you fill up your special bar, you can press in both analog sticks to unleash the mighty WAAAGH!
There are a ton of weapons and hats to buy with your hard-earned teef. You could buy a Six shoota, a powerful gun with piercing shots, but that needs to be reloaded round by round. There’s also the Looted plasma pistol, which was stolen from a lost space marine, giving you access to a gun that fires exploding bolts of plasma. As for the hats, they can be used to customize the look of your Ork of choice. Maybe you want to purchase a snazzy pair of goggles, a metal mohawk, a target hat, a spike hat, a red bandana, and more.
Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef has an in-game achievement system for you to work on. There are over 40 objectives for you to work on as you complete each stage. These objectives include completing all levels on the Hard difficulty setting, defeating 100 enemies with grenades, defeating 100 enemies with melee attacks, winning 50 online versus matches, defeating 25 space mariners, defeating 500 Orks, or buying every weapon in the store, to name some examples.
Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef is a 2D action game you can play on your own or with up to four players in local or online multiplayer. You can complete the campaign in around 4 hours or so, and it offers some replay value since you can replay the whole thing with a different class or by going online and diving into a full four-player session. Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef is out on Nintendo Switch with a $19.99 asking price. You can also check out the physical versions from ININ Games that launch next month.
