GunStar Metaverse is a play-to-earn 2D turn-based artillery game that is on the Binance Smart Chain network. Players are placed on a battlefield where the player and the opponent take turns striking each other with attacks and skills using their pets. Players can participate in several different PvE, PvP or Raid Boss game modes and earn various rewards. The game utilizes two kinds of tokens: GSTS token and GSC token.
In GunStar Metaverse, there are two opposing sides in a fight. Players are placed on one side, and the opponents can be either AI monsters or players. The arena they fight in can provide different advantages and disadvantages depending on the terrain and weather conditions such as winds, thunder and tornadoes. They take turns attacking with their pets and using their skills in a round. Each pet the player owns has 3 unique skills: 2 normal skills and an ultimate skill. There are twenty-three types of pets that are divided into rarities from common to rarest; normal, rare, elite, legendary, and ascended. Players can collect pet fragments from encounters. If they have enough gathered, they can merge them into a new pet. Pets can also be rented through the in-game marketplace.
Besides pets, players can utilize different items to achieve various effects. Some items teleport the player, heal their pet, allow them to fire twice in a round or to fire a stronger shot, or even grant immunity to all damage received until their next turn. Each win provides experience for the character, item, and GSC token/RUNE, which will be used to strengthen the pet.
There are four game modes: PvE, Raid Boss, and two PvP modes. The PvE (Campaign mode) is a single-player experience. Each fight in PvE requires a certain amount of endurance, which is called a Ticket. Tickets replenish over time. Campaign mode rewards are experience, GSC, or support items. The Raid Boss provides both single-player and co-op options. Each run in Solo Raid Boss uses 1 Solo Raid Pass. The main reward of the Raid Boss event is the Pet Fragment, which is a rare item in Gunstar. Pet fragments allow players to merge into new pets, and are required for pet leveling too. Besides, players can receive GSC, RUNE, and support items.
The PvP mode is the multiplayer mode where players can participate both as solo or as a team. PvP modes allow players to be ranked in the solo and team leaderboards. Ranking systems consist of rank levels ranging from intern to master.
Battle PvP is a new mode where players can fight each other through the Seasons. This mode is aiming to deliver easy fighting for the players who have less time to travel in StarWorld. Players use their NFT Pets which are trained & leveled up in the StarWorld then use them in Battle Seasons. Players need to send their pets into this Battle PvP to create a Team of 3 NFT pets to be able to participate in Battle Season. They can rearrange their pets and affect how they fight and can use special battle arena items to support their pets in their battles.
To enter the Battle PvP players need to pay Battle Tickets to join in a Season and get rewards. They can both claim their rewards depending on their status on the leaderboard and from PvP battles after they gained their first ranks and played against other ranked opponents in GSTS tokens. Players can allso challenge other players in the leaderboard regardless of their level, and if they win they will claim their place and push the defeated opponent to one slot below in the leaderboard. As players participate in PvP the total reward for the end of the season increases as a portion of entry fees go into the treasury pool of that season.
GSTS token is used for staking, governance, exchanging NFT pets, borrowing pets from the marketplace, and buying and selling NFT houses. GSTS can be gained from the arena, where you can get a ranking on the leaderboard, trade in the marketplace, and attend special limited-time events such as the open beta. GSC token can be used in the fortune wheel for a chance of dropping items, for merging pet fragments into an NFT pet, leveling up pets, buying tickets, paying for house rentals, and transportation. GSC can be gathered from in-game activities such as the campaign, boss raids, and the arena.
Hello! If you are thinking of giving Gunstar Metaverse a shot, you are in the right place. It is a 2D turn-based artillery battler that incorporates play-to-earn elements and allows you to own NFT items.
From the game’s website, you can click on play and jump right into the game from your browser. When you create a game account, the game will send an email to verify your account and request you to link Metamask wallet.
Some features will be locked until you reach a certain level with your NFT rider.
After creating an account, you will find yourself at the main menu, where you can jump right into the campaign mode. I suggest you try the training area first to learn the basics of gameplay, aiming can be tricky at first. The first level is set on Pearl Island. This island is a good indicator of what’s to come.
You need to complete certain levels to progress further.
If you are not familiar with 2D artillery battlers that are turn-based, you will get quickly accustomed to them. You, the other players, and the AI monsters are placed in a 2D arena for each battle, and you take turns firing at each other. You need to equip a pet before entering a battle.
Each pet has three unique skills; one ultimate skill and two standard skills.
Each skill has a damage range and a delay time. The higher the damage, the higher the skill delay will be. Ultimate skills have the most skill delay, and they can make you lose turns. Damage and delay numbers are randomized within their range.
Amassing a collection of pets will help you earn tokens faster.
You can move, aim, and perform an action on your turn and strategize while waiting for the others. The terrain is fully destructible or not (in Raid Boss), this means you will need to take this into consideration when making decisions since every game will have different circumstances.
Aiming can be tricky at first.
Pets are divided into rarities such as; trial, normal, rare, elite, mythic, legendary, and ascended. Rosaging you get at the start is an exception, though, it’s rarity is called trial since you get it for free. Every pet has hit points, defense, attack, critical chance, critical damage, and movement stats, as well as a level. NFT Pets require GSC token and Pet Fragment (in certain levels) to level up or Trial Pet Rosaging requires RUNE to level up, which increases their stats. Pets also have energy bars that deplete when you join a battle with them. One bar of energy recovers every four hours.
There are two new NFT Pets released soon: Fiving & Buthresing. These two new pets only can get by using Pet Merging. (You need have enough Pet Fragments)

You can view each pets’ skills by clicking on them.
You select up to three usable items before going into the battle. You’ll be given a selection of items for starters. You can get more items by using RUNE to buy, spinning Fortune wheel or earning them from progression in the campaign or Raid Boss.
|Teleport||Teleport to a location on the map.|
|Goddess’ Drink||Heal 30% of a pet's maximum health.|
|Symbol of Death||Fires your skills twice for one turn.|
|Villainous Elixir||Increases damage output by 30% for one turn.|
|Immunity||Immunity to all damage until your next turn.|
|Shovel||Increases terrain destruction of all skills.|
Your usable items are finite, only use them when necessary.
There are three ways to acquire pets; buying from other players, buying pet eggs from the marketplace, and merging pet fragments. I suggest buying two NFT pets right when you start the game and not trying to level your trial pet. With two NFT pets, you can withdraw the Available GSC Token. Trial pet is not NFT and it can only earn RUNE (which can be used to buy Raid Pass or Support Items)
When you start a battle, the first thing you should look for is the mini-map at the bottom right. It shows how the terrain is structured and where the enemies are positioned. You can strategize and position yourself accordingly.
Making sure to use your second skill and ultimate when you are in a safe spot is also crucial since these skills will make you miss one or two turns.
I suggest just using your normal attack and using your higher delay and damage skills to finish off lower health enemies.
Your character will gain experience from winning PvE battles. Each battle won will gain max 100 exp. Character level and progression are crucial to getting better pets since if you buy and equip a pet that is higher level than your character, its level will be capped and equalized to your character.
Daily quests give a good amount of RUNE.
I bought the two cheapest NFTs from the marketplace to start the game. They were 760 GST each. I recommend buying at least one more to maximize your profits. I was able to earn an average of 200 GSC from a week’s worth of gaming. I used two pets in the campaign, played every day, and completed some daily quests. I had to use my GSC to upgrade my pets in order to progress. There is not much left after only playing for a few hours each day. If you want to break even and withdraw your excess tokens, you will need to invest more time. Also, keep in mind that it takes seven days to withdraw your earned GST tokens.
I hope you enjoyed the guide. Gunstar Metaverse is an enjoyable game for everyone who loves side-scrolling 2D turn-based combat. You should give it a shot if it’s right up your alley. Thanks for reading!
