However, Tremulous, in spite of being a game that is mainly first-person action, includes some important strategic elements. This is owing to the role that you must choose for your character: soldier or builder.
Soldiers are mainly dedicated to exterminating the enemy race using the arsenal of weapons at their disposal, as well as any others they can create using their structures. Builders are in charge of creating those structures and other tools essential to the survival of their species.
All of this means that winning the battle is not just a matter of equipping your team with good weapons, but also maintaining and defending other resources and the means with which they are created.
