Sub Rosa is a round based gangster FPS. Each round, the 3 corporations are given a mission based on the game mode. They then have 6 minutes to deal with, ambush and double cross each other in order to bring the most money and items back to their base. Its very early days at the moment and the city is pretty bare but the game is already shaping up to be something special.
One team starts with the Disk, one team starts with the 2 to 4 blocks of Cash and one team starts with nothing. All teams know who owns the disk but the Disk team doesn't know which team has cash and how much they have. Any items in a team's hold at the end of the round count towards its' bonus.
3 Way Transaction
Each team owns one Disk and is tasked to collect one of the other team's disks. While collecting either disk will earn money, the bonus is far greater for getting the disk you were asked to get.
2 NPC driven limos, each carrying a Disk, will try to leave the city via the subway tunnels at the edge of the map. Kill the drivers and collect the disks. The round ends when either on the timer or when the NPCs leave the map.
Cars meet up at a set location and pass waypoints on a set track. The first team to get a car through the circuit wins. The first team to fire gets hit with a $10,000 fine, which always happens when some idiot fires their pistol. Don't be that guy.
Cash makes the game go round. Each round you will get a bonus depending on how well your team did last round and how many shares you have. If your team got nothing last round, you get nothing. If you survive a round then any items on you will be carried over to the next round. Your cash and shares are saved on each server, so if you regularly play the same server then you will quickly reach the point where you have a lot of cash coming in.
There are a variety of automatics at varying levels of cost and quality. Currently there are no other weapon classes. The pistol is free but is also totally crap.
Hurt players will sometimes start bleeding, which is indicated by blood coming out of the player and his health counter turning red. Bandages obviously can heal other players if they are bleeding. You CANNOT heal yourself. You can heal other team's players, so use this to your advantage.
There are 9 different cars in the game, each with its own handling. At the start of each round, each team will get one bog standard car and one bog standard van. A number of smaller Metros will also spawn around the map. Players can also buy their own cars but they are pricey and come with a car key. Once the key is lost or the car is destroyed it is gone forever. You can steal other people's keys and spawn with their car in the following round. You can transport players from other teams and you can shoot your God damn driver so look before you shoot.
