As the game progresses, players can upgrade and customize their robot crew with different abilities, weapons, and hats. Some weapons are equipped with laser sights to assist the player with the free aiming.The game has over 100 different weapons and almost 100 hats to collect. These can be found as treasure during missions or bought in designated shops. Hats are primarily obtained by shooting them off opponents’ heads and collecting them.

SteamWorld Heist Reviews:
SteamWorld Heist is a great turn based strategy game with a brilliant art style and good action. A charming romp through pirate space that successfully translates XCOM's combat into gorgeous 2D robot battles. The game is set in a Steampunk world with a real Firefly fell to it. The playable characters are colorful and diverse, the weapons look great and the DLC is just superb.
