The Counter Guide

Here is the counter guide against the gadgets.

Note: The Death From Below Counter Guide is at the Direct tab, the last part.

Most of them are grenades, and almost all of them are offensive! The only difference between them all besides the firepower: is the time taken for them to detonate!

  • Always run away from these gadgets’ radius blast.
    • Despite having long activation time, their blast radius is among the widest and the deadliest of all. So, run away from them as far as possible and as quickly as possible.

Trap Medals

  • Be skeptical.
