Help Marco Rossi and his rad team fight off Morden’s army in a new Metal Slug game. Unlike other MS games, Metal Slug Infinity is an idle RPG that lets you recruit, manage and train troops to fight waves of enemies that appear from the warp tube. You will be upgrading soldiers to make them stronger, equipping various slugs to your heroes so that they can hop into them from time-to-time to destroy incoming waves faster. You will also be using active skills to deal massive damage to enemies. Our series of video guides will help you learn the ropes.

Metal Slug Infinity: Getting Started Guide
If you are new to idle RPGs and have just downloaded Metal Slug Infinity, then you should watch this beginner-level video walkthrough. In this tutorial, you will learn the basics, such as:
1. Leveling up Marco and his soldiers to improve their stats and make them stronger.
2. Using Slugs to warp or skip stages.
3. Making the most of “Return” and medal rewards.
4. Opening quests to get gold at regular intervals so that you are never short of gold to upgrade your soldiers.
5. Helping P.O.W.’s to get gold and increase battle speed.
Collect and Promote Slugs
You can collect slugs from the excavation site. You will get 1~3-star slug from the beginner site and receive excavation tickets from it every few minutes/hours. Once you collect duplicate slugs, you can use them to promote a slug and create stronger vehicles.

Play a PvP Match to get Additional Rewards
PvP matches in Metal Slug Infinity can be fun, although you can’t tap a soldier’s portrait to level him/her up during a match. There are certain rules for a PvP match:
Soldiers and Slugs are as strong as your commander level. Enhancement and Soldier Level are ignored.
To win a PvP match, you will have to eliminate all enemy forces or the warp tube.
You will get 1 free PvP ticket every hour.
Here’s a gameplay video of a Player vs. Player Match:
If you win a PvP match, you will get battle speed boosts and 10 gems.
You will also receive honor coins and gems daily/weekly through inbox.
Return and Upgrading Type Masteries
You will get access of “Return” after clearing stage 30. “Return” is Metal Slug Infinity’s ascension/prestige system. When you return, you not only get medal rewards, but also increase soldier buffs and boost gold income rate from quests and battles. The only drawback is that your soldiers are back to level 1, although it won’t be difficult to level them up with the quest reward increase you will receive when you return. You will also obtain additional rewards on your first return every day.
This video guide will help you know what’s Return and how to use medals to upgrade type mastery:
Equip or Change Slugs
Slugs or vehicles play a very important role in battle. If you equip a slug to a soldier, the vehicle is summoned automatically when ready. A solider hops into his/her vehicle and uses it to attack and deal massive damage to enemies/warp tube. You can use an equipped slug to “warp” ahead or skips several levels. To use a slug’s warp, you will need energy which refills over time. Each slug’s energy requirement is different from the other and you can see the energy requirement of each slug on its portrait.
