Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense is a vehicular combat video game developed by Luxoflux and published by Activision released for the PlayStation, Dreamcast and the Nintendo 64 on December 1, 1999. Players control a vehicle and eliminate all other vehicles in the arena with the use of weapons and upgrades. The player can choose to play through a story mode, Quest Mode, or play with an assorted number of bots in Arcade mode. The game also offers a two-player cooperative mode and a Grand Melee Deathmatch mode, wherein the player endures attacks by multiple AI opponents. Second Offense introduced the "Salvage Points" system, which allows the player to upgrade their vehicle by collecting Salvage Points from destroyed opponents, improving the vehicle's offense, defense, speed, and targeting abilities. The vehicle's external appearance also changes with more Salvage Points and turns into a totally different design when it is fully upgraded.
