Hardcore mode is a feature that was introduced in the Evolved update for Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions.

This hub mode is collection of levels from Adventure and Ultimate mode, with the added challenge of not being able to use either Drones or Supers. There are also a few unique levels that do not appear elsewhere.

Super States do still appear like usual and usually spawn more frequently than they did originally in their respective levels.

Features Edit

Hardcore mode is essentially a collection of levels that appear in Adventure and Ultimate mode, these levels appear in the same way that they did in those modes, but do feature different score goals, stars are therefore harder to collect than they were previously.

There is no way to use either Drones or Supers, but Super States are still present and appear at a higher frequency than they did originally, often spawning immediately after the previous one has been taken care of.

Due to the increased difficulty, some rules have been changed, for instance the level Endurance now has a 5 minute timer instead of the original 10 minute timer that it sports in Adventure Mode.

There are a total of 20 levels and 60 stars to collect. All levels form a straight path on the map so no levels can be skipped, therefore the player must earn at least one star in every level in order to proceed, these levels are all listed in order below.

There is only one Boss level in Hardcore mode, and in order to complete one such level, the Boss itself must be killed, the final score does not count whatsoever if this condition is not met.

Levels Edit

Each level has its own rules and features, to learn more about a specific level, simply read its respective page.
