FANDOM


Sandbox is a game mode added on September 3, 2016. It is similar in style to Free For All, except that the map starts out significantly smaller. Unlike in other Game Modes, the Sandbox includes cheats - players can change their Level and/or Class with the simple press of a button. This makes Sandbox useful for testing Builds and for finding/killing Bosses.

Additional players may join a Sandbox arena, but only with a party link. Players who use cheats have their name displayed in yellow, anyone clean remains white.

Technical

  • The entire map is smaller than a large Pentagon Nest, but Crashers and Alpha Pentagons very rarely spawn in the center.
    • The 1-player grid is a square of 50 x 50 tiles.
    • As additional players join, the map size will increase by 20 x 20, along with a small Pentagon Nest.
  • Random Bosses will spawn 10 minutes after the server starts and 23 minutes after a Boss dies, as they do in other game modes. However, farming Bosses is not recommended, as they will not give exp if in God Mode and the server will close after 10 minutes of inactivity.

Special Controls

(These keys are for the common QWERTY keyboard and normal settings. On other keyboards, the keys may be different.)

  • O = Suicide (There will be a [You killed (Your name)] message and the death message will show that you were killed by [your name])
  • \ = Switch classes
  • K = Level Up (hold down to gain Levels quicker)
    • Maximum level is 45, even for special classes (Dominator, Mothership, etc)
  • ; = Activates God mode, grants invulnerability, similar to an Arena Closer.
    • Note: may not work on some keyboards.
      • If you are not using an English (US) QWERTY keyboard, you can find the key to activate the God mode by opening an On-screen keyboard and changing the Windows keyboard language to see the position of the key.
    • God mode can only be used when only one player is on the server. This function will be automatically deactivated if a second player joins the Sandbox and when all the other players leave it will become available again.

Trivia

The Sandbox button and message when using an Adblock until September 22nd, 2016.

  • Dominators, Arena Closers and Motherships can be played in Sandbox, but because the maximum Level is 45, they appear much smaller.
    • This is the only game mode in which Arena Closers and Motherships are playable.
  • As of September 4th, the arena size has decreased.
  • In a 1-player map, there are always 12 Polygons. When you kill one, another immediately spawns.
    • If you play in a 2-player map, the maximum amount of Polygons is 24 instead.
  • Interestingly, if the map size is small and you stand at the center of the map, Crashers stop spawning.
  • As a Necromancer, the more Squares you get the lesser the Polygons will spawn, thus there will be only 12 Drones you can get. But if you get to maximum (34) and you are the only one left (there must be some people get in first in order to collect Drones), you won’t lose any Drones, unless they’re being damaged.
  • When playing with others, be wary of trolls, as they generally switch into Arena Closers.
  • The smallest arena is 50x50 grid squares.
  • God mode used to work in public servers, now it only works with 1 person in game
  • The Sandbox Cheats might be the Developer Cheats (probably with restrictions).
  • You used to be able to get achievements in this mode, but it's no longer possible.

Possible Bugs

Sandboxglitch

A Sandbox arena that has no polygons since the Necromancer collected them all

  •  PC  Capturing all Squares in the Sandbox arena alone as a Necromancer will prevent any more Polygons from spawning until any of the squares are destroyed. A possible reason for this is that the captured squares are still counted as Polygons, and only twelve Polygons can spawn in the Sandbox arena when there is only one player.
