You’ve seen Agar.io, you’ve seen Slither.io, and the next one in the ranks is Cheer.io… Nah, psyche. It’s Diep.io, which takes the calssic Agar.io formula and turns it into a battlefield of tanks (that really look like ducks when you look at them from up top). Diep.io is no doubt the hardest of the lot – it’s a lot less forgiving, and getting good here takes no small amount of strategy. Here’s a few tricks to help you even the odds.

Diep.io

When it comes to the basics, keep in mind that your goal is to level up by shooting the various obstacles scattered around in the game. These are the squares, pentagons and triangles that you’ll find in the screenshot above. As you destroy stuff (including enemy tanks), your level bar fills up, and you can then improve your stats to become a more powerful tank. Long story short, it’s an RPG in the Agar.io mold.

So how do you get good? One strategy calls for focusing your upgrading on movement speed and health regeneration. After maxing out your regen, focus on upgrading your body damage and movement speed. Your goal is to run over blocks instead of shooting them.

Another strategy is to get to level 15 and upgrade to a Twin class, then maxing out your bullet damage and reload. When you reach level 30, upgrade to a Triplet class and max out Bullet penetration and bullet speed. Spend the rest of your upgrades onto Max Health. Your goal in this strategy is to be protected by your own stream of bullets. Just keep shooting everything down, and you’ll be fine.
