Item Usage[edit | edit source]
Items can be used via the
b!use command. Different types of items will do different things.
Item Types[edit | edit source]
There are currently eight different item types. Those are:
- Melee weapon
- Used to directly attack other players. Are weaker than guns but have a lower cooldown time.
- Note that 'throwable' weapons (such as shurikens) presently fall under this category.
- Used to attack other players. Requires ammunition in order to use. The ammunition is consumed but the gun is kept.
- Note that any weapons that use ammunition fall under this category. This includes wooden_bow (which uses wooden_arrow as ammunition).
- Healing items
- Used to heal yourself for an amount within a certain range (the range is different for each healing item).
- EXP items
- Used to increase your experience points.
- Gives the user a random item upon use.
- Money items
- Gives the user an amount of money within a certain range (the range is different for each money item).
- Adds an extra layer of HP, however shield HP cannot be recovered.
- Used to steal money from a random player in the server - a random amount from 1% to 10% of their currency will be stolen.
- Note that there is currently only one magnet in the game.
For items which have a range of values, those values can be viewed with the
Attacking[edit | edit source]
In order to attack, the server you are attacking in must have at least three users who meet the following requirements:
- Must have at least $5,000.00 in cash and/or at least $5,000.00 worth of items in their inventory.
- Must be opted in.
- Must not have their death shield active.
When attacking with a gun or melee weapon, the bot will give you the choice between 3 random users in the server. You will then have twenty seconds to choose the player you wish to attack; if you take too long to select a user, the bot will pick a random user for you. After deciding which user you wish to attack, the bot will generate a random amount of damage (within your weapon's range) which will then be inflicted on your target. If your target's HP drops below 0, that will kill the user and begin the looting process.
Once the looting process has begun, you will steal 70% of that user's money and the bot will begin cycling through your target's inventory 3 items at a time - from highest tier to lowest tier. You will have the choice to select one of these items which will then be stolen from that player. If all 3 of the items it would display to you are the same, the bot will automatically pick one of the items and move on to the next three.
