Mega Heroes


The goal of Mega Heroes is fairly simple. One player on each team is randomly chosen to become a boss called a Mega Hero. These two Mega Heroes and their teams fight until all the players on one team are eliminated and the winning team gets a point. When a team gets enough points they win!

Mega Heroes

Mega Heroes are bigger, faster, and stronger than regular players. Each team will continue to respawn until their Mega Hero is eliminated, so eliminating the Mega Hero is very important if you want to win. In addition to being bigger, having better stats, and allowing their team to respawn every Mega Hero has special abilities they can use to fight the enemy team or enable their own. Different Mega Heroes have different abilities, but every Mega Hero has access to a basic set of special abilities.

Mega Hero Basic Abilities

Mega Melee

  • The Mega Hero's Quick Melee does extra damage
  • The Mega Hero's Quick Melee has much greater knockback
  • Heroes without a Quick Melee have a similar, but weaker effect on their primary fire
  • The weaker Mega Melee can't push Mega Heroes

Mega Strength

  • Mega Heroes can use their Mega Melee while holding crouch to pick up other players
  • Picked up players can be thrown or dropped
  • Throwing an enemy at another enemy does damage
  • The throw distance and damage increase the longer the ability is active
  • Mega Strength can be used on friendly players as well as enemies
  • Enemy players are forced to aim at the Mega Hero while picked up
  • Friendly players can aim freely
  • When a friendly player is picked up and takes damage some of the damage is taken by the Mega Hero instead
  • Crouching with a friendly player increases this effect
  • When using Mega Strength on an enemy player the enemy Mega Hero can use their Mega Melee to cancel it
  • When using Mega Strength on a friendly player the Mega Melee only applies a stun to the picked up player
  • When cancelling Mega Strength you can use your own Mega Strength instead of a regular melee to steal the player
  • Being stunned cancels this ability regardless of teams
  • Heroes without a Quick Melee can use this ability by holding the melee button and using their primary fire

Mega Landing

  • Mega Heroes can land near enemy players to knock them into the air and do a small amount of damage
  • This can only occur if the enemy player is on the ground
  • Landing directly on top of an enemy player does more damage

Mega Charge

  • Mega Heroes can walk straight for 1 second to do a charge attack
  • The Mega Charge increases the Mega Hero's move speed and knocks back nearby enemy players
  • Mega Meleeing during the Mega Charge knocks down any enemy hit including the enemy Mega Hero
  • Changing directions, jumping, or stopping ends the Mega Charge
  • While Mega Charging the Mega Hero has a visible cloud effect around their feet
  • A Mega Hero can partially resist the Mega Charge + Mega Melee combo by crouching before getting meleed

In addition to the basic abilities every Mega Hero has their own hero specific abilities. Most of these don't work on the enemy Mega Hero unless the ability is specifically related to the enemy Mega Hero.

This gamemode includes an option to create a more traditional boss fight in the settings called Enable Super Mega Heroes for Team 2. Super Mega Heroes are significantly more powerful than regular Mega Heroes and perfect for setting up a 10v2 or 11v1 boss fight. Other team sizes could be used, but the default settings are optimized for 10v2 or 11v1. Health and damage modifier settings are included if you'd prefer to try balancing the Super Mega Heroes yourself.
