Red Hunt – Gameplay

As we mentioned above, the player assumes control of a single aircraft and is tasked with completing a variety of missions.

Each of these missions has the player navigate through hail of bullets and projectiles and features multiple objectives that the player needs to complete in order to advance.

These objectives can range from destroying a certain percentage of enemies, rescuing friendly agents, and not taking any damage, to eliminating every single threat.

Each mission culminates with a boss battle where players need to take out various weak spots in order to bring the boss down.

For each mission that they complete, players will receive resources and collect fragments that they can use to upgrade their jets at the hangar and increase their stats.

The aircraft that you control will be shooting its weapons automatically which means that the player is only in charge of moving the aircraft in any direction.

This means that players should focus on avoiding enemy fire in Red Hunt and other threats thrown in their direction, and try to aim as best as they can in an effort to quickly eliminate all threats.

Besides that, players should also concentrate on finding and rescuing friendly agents. In order to rescue an agent, players need to spend a specific amount of time hovering right above them.

The Hangar

The hangar in Red Hunt is where your aircraft is parked when you are not actively taking part in any missions.

It is also the place where you can switch between your jets and modify your aircraft to your personal preferences.

The hangar lets you make modifications to your jet’s equipment such as its weapons, armor, drones, and boosters which in turn changes its stats like power, armor, or speed.

In addition to that, players can also assign drones to their aircraft as well as add boosters.

Jets are parked at the hangar and are essentially aircraft that you control during your missions.

Each jet can be modified at the hangar and made unique by adding all kinds of equipment to it such as primary and secondary weapons, armor, boosters, and drones.

Each jet comes with its own stats such as power, armor, and speed. Some jets also come with their own special abilities that offer unique advantages such as increased star collecting or increased drone damage.

Additional jets can be either crafted with fragments or purchased for real money.
