DESCRIPTION

Overkill VR is a new VR FPS where you, as a leader of the rebel resistance, fight The Faction, a group of evil warmongers. During combat, you’ll have to break through in an increasingly hostile environment and defeat an ever-growing number of enemies. It won’t be easy, and you’ll need to keep close track of your guns and weapons and upgrade accordingly. But Overkill VR offers a wide range of guns, including serious kill machines, to make your job easier.

Many upgrades for your armory become available only as you advance in the game, so make sure your scores keep improving as you go through each stage. Power ups, multiple kills, wombo-combos, and headshots make the points add up, so be on your toes and play your best.  Your life depends on it!

Be smart. Use the environment and take advantage of its different covers to protect yourself. Use the realistic aiming system to get a good shoot. There are many ways to complete a zone, so look at the possibilities and pick the one the will work best for you.
