War Riders is a play-to-earn post-apocalyptic MMO action game with its native token, Benzene (BZN), that lets players earn cryptocurrency while blowing up cars. The main objective of War Riders is to become the most powerful army in the Wasteland by acquiring vehicles and garages. Every in-game object, such as vehicles, weapons, skins, etc., are NFTs and unique to its owners.
In the Wasteland, players have the freedom to customize their war vehicles however they want with custom-style parts and weapons. Also, the garages of war vehicles can be customized and upgraded. These upgradable war vehicles in the game are the primary sources of BZN mining by exploring the Wasteland. BZN appears randomly in the Wasteland, and upon collecting, players have to take their collected tokens to their garages in order to redeem them. Players can use BZN for various things, such as buying weapons, armor, ammunition, nitro-boost, or building additional garages.
Players of Wasteland can ambush other players to steal their BZN before they get to their garages. If the attacker succeeds, the victim will lose all the Benzene and will be frozen for a period of time. In order to prevent any risk of robbery, players can rent out garages of other players to seek protection.
War Riders’ native token, Benzene, is built on the Ethereum network. To start the game as a War Rider, players have to buy vehicles and weapons available at the War Riders marketplace.
Ah, the post-apocalyptic world. Sounds like a distant future, doesn't it? Actually, it's not like that at all. If we continue to destroy our world like this, very soon, our world will just be like that. Let's not forget to recycle and keep our environment clean-
Wait for a second, that wasn't today’s topic. Today’s topic is to BLOW UP VEHICLES WITH COOL-LOOKING WEAPONS IN A POST-APOCALYPTIC WASTELAND! *insert hard rock music here*
Hello, potential riders! Today, we will ride our monster vehicles in the brutal Wasteland of War Riders! Get ready for the vast deserts, the smell of gunpowder, and the constant text of “VEHICLE DESTROYED!".
War Riders is a post-apocalyptic MMO action game that utilizes the Ethereum network with its cryptocurrency, BZN. We can summarize the aim of the game as blowing up the war machines of the rival players to safely collect BZN from waypoints. Players have to bring what they’ve collected back to their garages without getting destroyed by other players to redeem their loot.
Players face each other on the world’s map of the game called the Wasteland. Let me tell you in advance, if you are a new player and try to play the game with the starter vehicle that the game gives you without investing in the game, your job is very difficult. Wasteland and its inhabitants are really cruel.
Before we cover the game in all its details, let's talk about how to start the game. To start the game you need an Ethereum wallet and an in-game account. You can use your Metamask, Coinbase, or Trust accounts to buy and invest Ethereum, but you need to create a brand new War Riders account to play the game. Creating or connecting two different accounts may seem a bit confusing, so let me explain how I did it.
I pressed the “PLAY NOW” button before creating a game account, and it directed me to a page to download the game. I downloaded the Windows version of the game.
The game's launcher was quickly downloaded, but after downloading the launcher, there was another short download in the launcher. It took 5 to 10 minutes. Then I entered the game by pressing the “PLAY” button.
Since I did not have an account, I pressed the “CREATE ACCOUNT” button on the screen. It directed me to the account creation screen.
I created a War Riders account, then went back to the login screen. When I filled in my email and password, the game asked me to connect my Ethereum wallet to this newly created War Riders account. After connecting my Metamask account to my War Riders account, I was able to enter the game. Easy peasy.
The game gives you a free war machine when you enter the game, and it’s called War Van. But to be honest, it really sucks. It’s slow and very weak in terms of weapons, armor, and health pool. Veteran players can destroy War Van with a single rocket, and believe me, they did destroy my War Van countless times.
This is War Van. You can change your vehicle’s color, equip weapons if you have any, and add a logo to your vehicle!
Let’s say you want to explore the Wasteland with your War Van. There are six safe zones that let you spawn on the map. Upon pressing the “E” button on the vehicle menu, you can pick a safe zone to spawn. You can choose The Continental, The Bunker, Gentlemen’s Club, OG, Area 721, and Central.
These garages are also your loot redeem points. You have to pay a 10% entrance fee if you choose Area 721 or OG garages.
When you are spawned in the Wasteland, the action begins instantly. Your main objective is to explore BZN waypoints and acquire its resources. If you are lucky, you can go back to a garage to safely deposit your loot. You can check the world map to find the closest waypoint by pressing the “M” button on your keyboard.
I spawned at Gentlemen’s Club just to be destroyed 40 seconds later. :’)
Whenever I went to a BZN point, I encountered powerful players already camping there. Some players were using 5 or 6 war machines for hunting down other players. It’s nearly impossible for new players to hang out alone in the Wasteland. I also see people camping just outside the safe zones just to destroy newly spawned players like me. It’s really wild out there. If you want to survive in the Wasteland, you definitely need to invest in the game.
Well, if you want to be better and survive longer in the Wasteland, you can compete with other players by buying some powerful weapons and upgrading your war machine. There are two main purchase options in the game; vehicles and weapons. The vehicle supply of War Riders divides itself into premium-grade, mid-grade, and regular-grade. Speed, acceleration, BZN tank capacity, guns, and armor are the main indicators of a vehicle in terms of grade. The premium-grade vehicles have the best statistics of them all.
Premium vehicles are the best of the best. They can be bought, sold, and traded at the OpenSea marketplace of the game, but they are very expensive. SUVs, hovercrafts, tanks, and Lambos are premium vehicles, and they are really powerful. Also, since they are equipped with different combinations of weapons, they vary in terms of pricing.

As the name indicates, mid-grade vehicles are the mid-grade. They are better than regular-grade vehicles and cheaper than premium-grade vehicles. They are fast and offer some protection. They are also available on the marketplace for players. Dune Buggy, War EV, and Trophy Truck are mid-grade war machines. They can carry 1 to 3 weapons at best.

Regular war vehicles are the worst of the best. Right now, only the hatchback vehicle is available, but still, it is so much better than the War Van. In general, regular ones can equip 1 to 3 weapons, but they offer less protection, and they are slower.

Unlike war vehicles, weapons are the NFTs that come out of weapon cases. When you open a weapon case, you can sell the weapon you get in the marketplace. You can also buy the weapons you want directly from the marketplace without opening a case. Opening a case, however, can be fun and profitable if you believe in your luck. As with vehicles, weapon crates have three grades; premium, mid, and regular.
There are two types of weapons in the game, alternative, and main weapons. You can switch between weapons according to the situation you are in during the game by holding the “Q” button.
As I mentioned before, war vehicle prices are very variable. The most expensive war vehicle, Gold Lambo, is 40 ETH or $140.000, while the cheapest war vehicle, an SUV, is 0.04 ETH or $140 right now on the marketplace.
I played the whole game with my War Van. I tried to go to the different BZN waypoints 9 or 10 times during my gameplay, but each time I was blown up by three rockets at the most. If you want to be successful in the game and, moreover, make a profit, you definitely need to invest in the game by purchasing better weapons or war vehicles.
