Posted by: BlueStacks Content Team

Tacticool is one of the latest additions to the roster of action-packed Multiplayer shooter games that you can play on the mobile platform. The game is generally simple yet surprisingly challenging and tricky that requires players to exert the best of their tactical skills as well as their impressive eye and hand coordination to win the battle. Gameplay wise, if you have tried games like Counter Strike or Modern Combat then you should know the drill. Tacticool works similarly with your typical multiplayer battle but still offers distinctive elements that makes the game unique. The game features a 5v5 Team match campaign where your goal is to kill as many opponents as possible within the given time frame.

Advantages of Playing Tacticool on BlueStacks

Wider Screen – Why should you settle on a 5 inch wide screen if you can play the game on a bigger and wider resolution? With BlueStacks, you can play the game on a  bigger screen or better yet in fullscreen which allows you to see the battlefield a lot clearer. It helps you formulate a more effective strategy and maximize your chances in winning.

Manage Game Controls – Knowing that the game will be played on your desktop, kindly expect a drastic change when it comes to game controls. Instead of tapping and swiping on the tiny mobile screen, you will get to use your keyboard and mouse. Another great advantage of playing this game on BlueStacks is the ability to customize your controls based on your very own preferences. This Keymapping tool allows you to run the game in the most convenient way possible. You can assign keys for each necessary action and you can also change them anytime you want.

Creating New Instances – In Tacticool, you will either be part of a team with members that are randomly picked by the system or you can form your own squad by inviting your friends. Sometimes, however, the strategy fails because of lack of proper coordination. If you think you are skillful enough, BlueStacks can actually allow you to create new instance. Here, you can open another window and play the same game of different accounts simultaneously.

Strategize Battle With BlueStacks Combo Key Feature

Tacticool is all about strategy and you cannot simply rely much on your weapons. You must learn how to strategize your battle by coming up with some effective tactics. However some actions will consume more time and it only ruins the entire strategy. Switching from one weapon to another will require a key press and it takes another key press to reload them. You also have a designated key for crouching and another key for using your special weapon. Therefore, in order to perform a smooth combo, you have to hit all these keys manually.

Accessing BlueStacks Multi-Instance App

Taking Advantage of The BlueStacks Multi-Instance

For a 5v5 Shooter game, teamwork is most likely the key to win the match. Each member should come up with the most effective strategy to win over their opposing team. Unfortunately, since the game randomly picks team members for each match, victory is not always an assurance. Same thing goes if you invited friends and formed a squad of your own. If there is lack of cooperation then you might all end up losing the battle. This is where you can take great advantage of the BlueStacks Multi-instance feature.

As what the title suggests, this BlueStacks app allows you to create new instances. This will open up a new BlueStacks window which you can either clone from the original window (same account) or create a new instance (a different account). When creating a new instance, you must establish a different Google Account and you must install a different Tacticool application too.

It will also help you increase your overall ranking too.
