BASIC MANEUVERS and MECHANICS
- MAG GRAPPLE: Press and hold the Trait key (must be bound in the controls menu) and press Primary Fire to perform the MAG GRAPPLE, which brings enemies closer to you!
- MAG SPEAR: A powerful divekick that deals massive damage! Press and hold the Trait key and press Alternate Fire while in the air!
- STASIS UPPERCUT: Press and hold fire while Mel's melee is selected to charge the STASIS UPPERCUT! This maneuver is extremely powerful and puts enemies into an airborne stasis field they can be either shot or melee'd from!
- POWER BANK: POWER BANK allows you to store an instant charge for the Stasis Uppercut which mitigates the charging time by pressing the Taunt key (must be bound in the controls menu). A lightning bolt icon will appear next to the weapon icon on the HUD if a charge has been successfully stored! NOTE: You can immediately cancel the Taunt animation and perform a near-instant Stasis Uppercut (POWER BANK CANCEL).
- WALL JUMP: After coming into contact with a wall after a jump, you can bounce off of it by hitting the jump key again to perform a WALL JUMP. There is a sound cue for when you're able to wall jump, so be on the lookout!
- SLIP DASH: The SLIP DASH is an excellent movement utility that can be performed by hitting the crouch key when you come into contact with the ground after a jump. It'll propel you forward at a high speed for a short amount of time.
- Melee key is currently non-functional!
- Please report any bugs you find by either posting here or posting in Blue Vertigo's Discord server!

The Space Pirate is a labor of love and hard work. We've paid for everything (voice actors, artwork, etc) out of our own pocket and have aspirations to take TSP to even higher heights! Consider supporting Blue Vertigo on Patreon and helping us fund our work.
