In Hyper Scape, like nearly every other battle royale these days, there’s a revive mechanic. However, it works very differently to other titles. Here’s how “restoring” in Ubisoft’s battle royale works, and what you can do while you’re “downed” as an Echo.

No matter how good you are at Hyper Scape, you will inevitably die every now and again. However, like most other battle royales on the market these days, Ubisoft’s futuristic title has a revive mechanic.

The “restore” system works very differently to other titles though. While it’s most similar to Fortnite or Apex Legends, it’s not quite the same because ultimately the downed player still plays a part in the revive.

After you die in Hyper Scape, you’ll ‘respawn’ as an Echo until your teammate revives you.

If you haven’t yet jumped into Neo Arcadia and want to know how the afterlife works in Hyper Scape, we’ve got a quick guide to playing as an “Echo” after you die, and how you can jump back into the action.

Playing as an Echo in Hyper Scape

In Hyper Scape, when you die, you don’t have to lay down lifeless until your ally picks you up. You get to still play the game, but just as an Echo.

Echoes in Hyper Scape have no health, but are totally invisible and can move around as normal. You can act as a scout for your still-alive team mates, warning them of danger ahead. You can also ping weapons on the ground.

You can’t interact with the environment though. This means you can’t break down barriers by yourself ⁠— you’ll need your allies to shoot them down for you to scout ahead. Until you get revived, or your squad gets wiped, you’ll play as an Echo.

Reviving in Hyper Scape at Restore Points

The Echo mechanic works in tandem with how reviving in Hyper Scape works. By warning your allies about enemies up ahead, they can better prepare for the gunfight to get you back alive.

The more allies you have in the Showdown, the more likely you’ll take the crown in Hyper Scape.

When your ally kills an enemy, a Restore Point will open up on the ground. This will allow you to revive once you jump on it with an ally nearby. Here’s a quick rundown of how this works:

  1. Kill an enemy to gain access to their Restore Point.
  2. Have the Echo walk over to the Restore Point.
  3. Initiate the revive. This will take a little bit of time, so be sure to protect your ally.
  4. After a short period of time, your ally will be back in the fight.

You might need to drop them some weapons or hacks to help them get back on their feet, especially if the enemy you killed didn’t have a lot of equipment on them.

From there, you can play out the game as normal. If you get revived, be sure to quickly try to get your hacks and guns back up to max power before you get thrown into the Showdown phase, so you have a better chance of taking home the crown.

Funny Apex Legends easter egg found in Hyper Scape

Hawk-eyed Hyper Scape players have discovered a funny Apex Legends easter egg in Ubisoft’s latest entry to the battle royale genre, Hyperscape.

Hyperscape released on July 12, 2020, capitalizing on the booming battle royale market since the likes of Fortnite, Apex and Warzone took over the gaming world.

While it may not have yet reached the dizzying heights of the aforementioned games, players are still having a lot of fun with its unique take on the genre, notable for its integration with Twitch that allows viewers to affect the outcome of a match.

Hyper Scape has been somewhat of a success for Ubisoft.

Hyper Scape and Apex are somewhat similar in their futuristic gameplay and action, and although most players have picked a side by this point, Ubisoft has left a little message in the game to Apex players and a nod to their competition over at Respawn.

If you’re an Apex Legends player, you’ll know the incredibly frustrating call of “Mozambique here,” the game trolling you as it tries to convince you to take the Mozambique shotgun.

Obviously, the Mozambique is one of the least popular weapons in the game. It’s not very powerful and is just about the last weapon you want to have to carry after you land — and it looks like that’s something the Hyper Scape developers are well aware of.

While traversing Hyper Scape’s Neo Arcadia map, Redditor imBrettValentine found a little note perched on a desk with just two words written on it: “Mozambique here!”

Obviously, there is no Mozambique shotgun in Hyper Scape, so is clearly a nod to its competitor — and is a pretty funny one at that.

For players who have made Hyper Scape their main game, this might have triggered some unwanted flashbacks, but it does raise the question of whether there are even more undiscovered easter eggs in the game.
