Minions Gameplay

Two to twelve people can participate in the game. Players will need to control the minions - machines remotely resembling tanks. The selected character guides with the mouse. In total, there are eight types of minions to choose from (six without Minions Bonus Pack), and each of them has its skills and characteristics.

Players are given 30 seconds to choose a minion. After the pick stage, the game begins. The task of the teams is to destroy the enemy base. Each of is located at opposite ends of the map. Over time, the controlled machine receives experience points that the player can spend on improving abilities and weapons as soon as he reaches a new level. All minions have three skills to develop. Also, periodically, mini-minions appear on the map, killing which, players gain a lot of experience.

Towards the enemy base is towers guarding the path to the main building. To break into the enemy base, players first need to destroy the towers jointly. Hitting or destroying the tower also gives a lot of experience. After the end of the game, everyone is awarded rank points depending on the victory dealt damage to enemy minions, mini-minions and buildings.

  • 1 point for every 10 experience
  • 20 points for every kill
  • 10 point for every 20% damage to a tower
  • 100 points for being on the winning team

When Minion dies, it becomes a ghost. Ghosts can move around and can be seen by everyone. They cannot shoot or scout.

Minions Game Modes
