Power Ups[edit]

A Power Up rune will spawn at the bottom of the river every 40 seconds. It will move towards the top of the river before disappearing. To get the effect of the Power Up the players need to either hook it or attack it. There are currently five different Power Up runes in the game:

  • Hyper Speed - Slows down time for everybody but the Pudge that hooked it. Movement speed and hook speed is decreased for the others and increased for the Pudge that hooked it.
  • Gold - Gives 500 gold to the Pudge that hooked it.
  • Shield Barrier - Creates a shield around the Pudge that hooked it that deals 100 damage per second to enemies and allies.
  • Fire - Makes the hook for the Pudge that hooked it leave a trail of fire that deals 50 damage per second.
  • Dynamite - Makes the Pudge that hooked it explode after 10 seconds dealing 20000 damage to enemies and allies in a 400 radius.
  • Thunder - When a pudge hooks the Thunder Rune his hook will be charged with thunder, making his hook spawn lightning on hit.
