Power Ups are items found on the battlefield whenever you kill an enemy. Power Ups have an instant effect or at most a limited duration after which they disappear. An example is the ‘Ghost’ power-up which spawns a temporary ghost copy of you which will go about attacking and killing the enemy on its own. An example of an instant power-up is the ‘Dynamite’ bomb.
For maximum effect, perks and power-ups can be made to interact: for example the ‘PowerUp Extender’ perk will prolong the effect duration of any power-up you pick up; the ‘Intensity’ perk will make any projectile weapon you pick up fire at a faster rate, etc.
Note: The key to playing Nation Red successfully lies in discovering the most powerful combination of perks and power ups.
