"Prepare for a missile frenzy as the Homing super takes over"
—Description from Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

Homing is a super that when used releases a large number of homing missiles that seek out any enemy nearby, destroying them instantly.

There are a few exceptions to this rule, the Boss enemy is completely ignored, along with any enemy behind a wall.

Upgrading this super will exponentially increase the number of missiles released and will increase the rate at which they are fired.

Mines Edit

GW3Minericon
"Provides some player protection by covering the grid in small explosives."
—Description from Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

Miner is a super that when used releases a number of mines at regular intervals, they are placed where the Drone is currently.

The mines are activated whenever an enemy passes over one, the mine then explodes, destroying all enemies inside the radius. Putting mines near each other can even cause a chain reaction, potentially destroying multiple enemies.

Upgrading this super will increase the intervals at which the mines are released by the Drone, the blast radius remains unchanged.

Black Hole Edit

GW3Blackholeicon
"Suck the enemies in then blow them up, showering the level in Geoms"
—Description from Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

Black Hole is a super that when used releases a so-called black hole at the current location of the players' drone.

It will then attract nearby enemies and destroy them as soon as they get into a specific area around the black hole itself, larger enemies like the Boss is unaffected by this.

Upgrading this super will increase the duration of the black hole, along with the strength of the explosion when the duration ends.

Turret Edit

GW3Turreticon
"Multi-direction firepower, devastating at a high level."
—Description from Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

Turret is a super that when used activates a stationary turret at the current location of the players' drone.

The turret will then release a large number of bullets in a clockwise rotation, the bullets are identical to the ones fired by the player, destroying most enemies instantly.

Upgrading this super will increase the amount of bullets fired along with the rate at which they are fired.

Clone Edit

GW3Cloneicon
"Double the drones, double the fun."
—Description from Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

Clone is a super that when used will give the player an additional drone along with the regular one.

The drone will be the same one that that the player picked at the start of the match and will also be at the same level of upgrades as the original drone.

Upgrading this super will increase the duration of the clone, when the duration ends there will be a purely visual pulse in the background.

Detonator Edit

GW3Detonatoricon
"Multiple small explosions culminating in a big bang, the detonator annihilates enemies."
—Description from Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

Detonator is a super that when used will transform the players' drone into a so-called detonator.

The detonator is fully mobile and will home in on nearby enemies and periodically release small explosions and when the duration ends it will release a massive explosion, clearing a large area around it. After a few seconds the players' drone will respawn.

Upgrading this super will increase the radius of the explosions, along with decreasing the amount of time it takes for the drone to respawn.

Tips Edit

  • Some supers might be more effective on certain levels, and in some game modes supers can't be used, i.e Pacifism.
  • Different supers can be equipped along with different drones in order to achieve different results, try to experiment.
  • Some supers take a small amount of time to activate, it is recommended that the player keeps this in mind when planning to use it, and remember that activating the super earlier than at the optimal time is preferable to losing a life.
  • Different levels might limit the usefulness of some supers, i.e the Turret will be severely limited if the level contains walls inside the grid itself.
