Uprising: Join or Die Windows In large battles, it can become difficult to distinguish allied forces (green symbol) from foes (red symbol), unless you learn your units design.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows From left to right, money pick-up, repair (energy restore) pick-up, ammo replenishing pick-up. This is a trap and as soon as you pick one, you will be surrounded by teleported enemies.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows When you die, as long as you have Wraiths remaining, you can respawn at the most recent citadel or start location if you own none. Additional lives can be bought before a mission or found as pick-ups.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows Enemy factories located outside of an enemy citadel perimeter will spawn units every specific interval. Here a tank is emerging from the ground of a tank factory.
