Backpack Battles Guide: Game Basics, Tips, and Recipes

Backpack Battles is a simple game, where you build your backpack with items to create stronger backpack build than the opponents’.

Randomness is part of the game, where player will be challenged to build using random items given by the shopkeeper, and then to fight randomly matched players.

This guide will explain basics on how the game works and how it is played.

Battle System

  • The game is uses asynchronous PvP battle system.
  • This means that players are not fighting the opponent players live.
  • Players’ backpack are saved to the server, and it is recalled to face another for certain time frame.
  • The time frame how long a build is saved and used in the battles is not specified.

Since the game is not a live PvP, you are able to play the game at your own pace, without any countdown timer.

If you wish to continue the game at later time/date, you can press ESC(or setting) to exit the game and continue later.

Backpack Battle has two game modes: ranked and unranked.
