** Gnaw's reliance on Damage over Time leaves him very ineffective against healers and passive regeneration upgrades like Med-i-Can.

** Mostly averted with the 'Nauts, but all of them experience a slight slowing effect while firing and moving simultaneously, and activating most skills causes a momentary cessation of movement. Played straight with Raelynn, who remains completely still during the charge-up of her 'Snipe' skill, as well as Yuri, who cannot move at all while firing his laser.
** Played somewhat straight with Coco, Chucho (while on his bike), and Ted [=McPain=], who can't walk backwards while firing. None of the 'Nauts can move backwards while shooting, but in their case, their basic attacks fire so rapidly that there's no time for them to move before another shot is fired.
** Fully averted with Max's regular attack with an upgrade that removes the movement penalties while firing.

* AnAdventurerIsYou: The game has 5 main roles among the 'Nauts.
** ''Tank'': Beefy warriors with high HP and/or a source of damage mitigation, but with larger hitboxes and very slow.
** ''Fighter'': Characters who specialize in opening fights and staying in them. Lower health than a tank but more combat utility or raw power.
** ''Harasser'': What might be called a Mage in other games. They're similar to fighters, but don't involve themselves directly in the fight, preferring to apply pressure from a safe distance.
** ''Assassin'': Squishy characters with incredible damage. They can finish foes off before they have time to fight back, but die very quickly if caught out of position.

[[ExcusePlot Right, with the plot out of the way]], the game is what takes centre stage from here. Think of the structure of a typical {{MOBA}} game (lanes with creeps going down them, turrets at periodic moments, and a base you have to destroy at the end), but recontextualised as a 2D platformer. This naturally opens up some slightly different skill sets to what you'd expect from something like ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', ''DefenseOfTheAncientsAllStars'' and the like.
