Upgrading your weapons and abilities is a bit different in Hyper Scape compared to its battle royale rivals. Here’s what you need to know about the fusion mechanic that Ubisoft have introduced.

Even though it is only in a technical test phase, Ubisoft’s Hyper Scape battle royale has created plenty of buzz. Players have been streaming to Twitch in the hopes of getting a beta access drop for watching along.

Though the formula of dropping, looting, and being the last player or team standing is similar to other battle royales, there are a few different features. Most notably, upgrading your weapons through the fuse mechanic.

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

Unlike Fortnite where you simply pick up a better variant of a gun or Apex Legends where it revolves around attachments, Hyper Scape is different.

To upgrade your weapon in Ubisoft’s game, you simply pick a second copy of the weapon you’re holding. By doing so, the game will fuse the two together to give you an upgraded version. 

Of course, you can always pick up fully kitted out versions from floor loot but you’ll need to head to highly populated areas like Throne Hall or Red Tiger to make that happen. Obviously, if you don’t get there before your enemies, you’re in for a rough time.

Like your weapons, hacks can only be upgraded to a fifth level of power. For hacks, these upgrades will make the abilities last a bit longer and cooldown quicker as well.

It works in the same way as weapons. Pick up a hack, find another, pick that up, and let Hyper Scape work it’s fusing magic.

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.
