If you jumped into Hawken’s beta this weekend you may have spent the first hour flailing about in confusion being thoroughly blown up. That’s okay, friend; that is normal. Peep at these training videos until you reach a level of basic competence.

Below you’ll find parts one and two of a basic training video which introduces key elements of the game, but for more advanced users, visit YouTube to find out all about the Siege and Missile Assault modes.

Hawken is in closed beta; the free-to-play mech sim is expected to launch in December.
