GamesBeat's Mike Minotti: Super Monday Night Combat is fun free-to-play shooter available to the masses simply by downloading a client. The game, however, comes with a pretty steep learning curve. It looks like a simple team-based shooter (like Team Fortress 2 or Tribes: Ascend), but this colorful title takes its inspiration from a genre that doesn’t usually involve guns. Even if you played the original Monday Night Combat, you can still easily find yourself lost and confused during your first few rounds.
I generously decided to help out SMNC newbies by presenting them with three simple tips that should put them on the path to victory. Please note that these tips relate to the original Super Crossfire mode and not the newer, faster-paced and less strategic Turbocross mode.
