There are two different playable game modes in Starbots: Player Versus Player (PvP) and Player Versus Environment (PvE). Each mode offers distinct gameplay features and mechanics.
In PvP, two actual players join a battle each other, whoever wins gets vGEAR and gives DP to climb rank system.
The other game mode, PvE, players need to defeat Boss on each stage in a planet. Each stage will give you rewards (vGEAR, Lootboxes,... ) and experience to level up your robots.
