Gigantic 104: Communication

COMMUNICATION

 

In Gigantic, there are several tools you’ll use to communicate, coordinate, and help your team in the fight for victory. Here’s an overview of the communication methods in your arsenal!

 

VOICE CHAT

 

Our integrated VOICE CHAT lets you communicate and coordinate with your team on the fly. Gigantic is a super fast-paced game, which means that staying informed is key to staying one step ahead of your enemies.

Using voice chat allows you and your team to make rapid tactical decisions, discuss strategy, and track enemy movements. It can even serve as a learning tool as you're getting started in the game!

Here are some of the best ways to use the in-game voice chat:

VOICE CHAT TIPS:

  • Talk with your teammates to build a strong team before the match begins!
  • Let your team know when (and where) enemies are moving. Staying on top of their rotations will help you defend your territory.
  • Communicate when you're about to summon and upgrade creatures so your team can make smart tactical decisions.
  • Let your allies know when you're about to pressure a point in enemy territory; don't let them get caught off guard!
  • Use voice to coordinate your assault on the enemy Guardian! The more in sync your team is, the more likely you are to secure the Wound.

 

 

PING WHEEL

 

The PING menu gives you a quick and effective way to let your team know what’s happening on the battlefield. Pings can be a great way to get your team’s attention, highlight an enemy, or let your allies know where you’re headed next.

PING (PC)

PING (Xbox)

C -or- Middle Mouse Button

By tapping the ping button, you can quickly drop a ping marker at the location where your reticle is pointed. This not only creates a ping in the world, but also marks the minimap for your team. Pinging on a Power Circle or Guardian will automatically place a marker right on the objective you’re pinging – an easy way to encourage your team to assault or defend!

Holding the ping button opens the PING WHEEL, which provides a wider array of ways to communicate with your team. Select an option using the mouse or left thumbstick, and then drag left or right to branch into additional options.

Click the individual categories below to see all the options of the ping wheel.

QUICK MESSAGE SYSTEM (QMS)

 

The QUICK MESSAGE SYSTEM – or QMS, for short – is made up of a handful of short voice lines that can be used to communicate with your team.

QMS (PC)

QMS (Xbox)

V -or- 1 / 2 / 3 / 4

When you’re NOT standing on a Power Circle, you can open the QMS menu to select from a tree of dialogue options. Each menu unlocks a different set of voice commands, and selecting an option will not only trigger a message in the chat window, but will prompt your hero to read the line aloud!
