Tab brings up the scoreboard, where all players are displayed with their pings and karma. Right-click a player to mute them, copy their Steam ID, or visit their Steam profile. Left-clicking on a player allows you to give them a tag, which disappears after the round ends. Tags are as follows: KOS, Suspect, Avoid, Friend, and Missing. Giving players tags makes keeping track of everyone's status easier.
Pressing C brings up the Buy Menu (only if you are a Traitor or a Detective) where role credits can be spent. Various special Traitor/Detective items may be purchased. Be careful, though, as holding most items from the menu are grounds for being killed.
Pressing F1 brings up the settings menu. From here, various settings may be changed and customized to your preferences.
Items and the Inventory
As you play, various currencies may be found around the map. Most of these currencies can be used on weapons in order to influence their Modifiers, which impact different aspects of how a gun performs. Doing well during rounds will control the number of currencies that spawn. You can view the currency tab in the inventory for a better understanding of their usage and what to look out for.
When a round ends, there is a chance to drop an End-round Crate which can then be opened to obtain a weapon. Unneeded weapons may be turned into shards to use in Crafting by moving it over the garbage can while holding left-click. Base weapons can be a variety of different rarities. Various Quests may also be completed in order to obtain weapons.
- Main Article: Divine Market.
Divine Market is a feature that can be accessed through the player's inventory. Here, players may buy and sell items in a global market called the Marketplace, purchase items in the Stardust Shop, and exchange Stardust for other currencies.
Weapons and Modification
- Main Article: Modifiers.
Modifiers are various attributes that impact what weapons do in a positive or a negative way. There are several tiers of modifiers, with Tier I being the best, Tier II the second best, etc. The number of modifiers that can be applied to a single weapon depends on its Rarity, with some having a greater number than others. Some weapon rarities also restrict certain types of modifiers or increase the chance of getting a specific type of modifier.
Prefix modifiers are represented as bars and are base stat improvements.
Suffix modifiers are represented as text and typically add small abilities.
- Main Article: Constellations.
Constellations are properties of Weapons that can be unlocked by right-clicking on any weapon and clicking "Open Constellations." In order to unlock Constellations on a weapon, 250 Stardust must be spent. Two Constellations and a central constellation may be unlocked on each weapon. Primary Constellations completely changes how a weapon performs, while secondary Constellations affect Pluto-specific things; for example, Currency spawns.
- Main Article: Rarity.
Every single weapon has a Rarity. Rarity determines how many modifiers a weapon can roll and what types of modifiers a weapon can roll.

There are four types of quests: Hourlies, Dailies, Weeklies, Unique. Unique quests are relating to Events, so most of the time you will not have one.
