MSA Battle

Battle (unlocked at Level 03) is a new competitive asynchronous multiplayer mode in Metal Slug Attack. Players attack each other and NPCs on their way to the top of the local leaderboard.

Each day (refreshes at 0400 hours server time) a player is given 5 attempts to attack and 3 options at a time to pick from: 2 opponents of a much higher rank and a slightly higher rank (whose rank is claimed if victorious) as well as 1 opponent of a lower rank (whose rank isn't claimed); this triplet can be refreshed as many times as desired. Opponents' decks are not revealed, but one can see their Levels, Online Rank, and the amount of total victories achieved (one's own victory counter can bee seen via the local Rankings).

Given this mode's nature, players are given an option to set up a defensive unit deck others will get to fight in case of initiating an attack. Successful defense nets additional 10 Battle Medals each that are distributed along with the rank reward. The last 10 opponents are recorded in the Battle History.

MSA Team Battle

Team Battle (unlocked at Level 20) is a step forward from Battle. Instead of 1 deck, players are required to defeat 2 out of 3 enemy decks in order to win. Both offensive and defensive decks can be set up, however any given unit can be present only in 1 deck at a time, forcing the player to manage their units carefully between decks.

This mode also features a separate leaderboard, as well as its own Team Battle Shop. Battle Medals can be nonetheless spent across both Battle and Team Battle indiscriminately.

MSA Daily Daily quests offer:

  • EXP 100 and MSD currency MSP 5,000 [as of 1.3.0] for initiating 1 [as of 1.3.0] attack in Battle.
  • EXP 100 and MSD currency MSP 5,000 [as of 1.3.0] for initiating 1 [as of 1.3.0] attack in Team Battle.
  • MSA currency Medal Battle compressed 100 and MSD currency MSP 10,000 for 1 [as of 1.3.0] successful attacks.
  • MSA currency Medal Battle compressed 300 and MSD currency MSP 30,000 for 3 [as of 1.3.0] successful attacks.

Attempts

After running out of 5 attempts (A.K.A. chances, tries, or challenges) in either mode given at the start of each day, the player can reset the counter (by tapping the "+") to continue progressing through the corresponding game mode. Each reset costs an increasing amount of MSA currency Medal compressed Medals (10, 30, 50, etc.) [as of 1.4.0].

NPCs

At the start of each month, all ranks are populated by pre-made NPC decks. Due to suboptimal Unit composition, these prove to be easier opponents than player-made decks. And so, some players utilise mimicry to pass for NPCs. There are several ways to tell humans from NPCs:

  • User names are written in lower case, i.e. "npc".
  • Online Rank is Recruit.
  • Avatar is Eris.
  • Win counter is 0, because NPCs do not attack players in this mode.
  • (Only in Team Battle) Decks are full (no free spaces).
  • (Only in Team Battle) Unit Tiers, Skills, and Levels are uniform across all decks. Command power is exclusively Metal Slug Attack.

Rank Rewards

Every day at 2100 hours (server time) players are given a reward (via the Mailbox) based on their ranks at the time (see the table bolow) - in MSD currency MSP MSP, MSA currency Medal compressed Medals and MSA currency Medal Battle compressed Battle Medals (can be spent in the Battle and Team Battle Shops). Battle and Team Battle Ranks share the reward table, and the highest rank of the 2 is rewarded [Both used to be rewarded pre-1.1.0].

One-time MSA currency Medal compressed Medal rewards are given for individually surpassing one's own highest rank. The record currently held is displayed as Best [as of 1.5.0] along with the current Rank.

Additionally, every month the top 1,000 players are given a corresponding amount of pre-set MSA Unit Part (Single) Unit Parts (units rotate).
