There are two ways to level up, by farming or PvP. By using strategies, score efficiency is maximised. The dash (right-click) is an essential tool for all strategies.
When starting out (Level 1-4), it is important to stay within the white, green and orange zones. These zones offer lower amounts of score and discourage higher level players to stay there.
Depending on the leaderboards, the black and red zones can be used to farm although not recommended for anyone below level 5. Adept players can start off in black or red zones before level 5 if they are experienced in dodging projectiles and escaping from others' range.
A higher level of skill is needed to level up via PvP.
