Drop in co-op allows you to bring reinforcements to the fight. Better yet, share perks, items, buffs and loot with your comrade. Or, if they get in your way, share your bullets.
Synthetik has all the core components of a great rogue-lite - an insurmountable objective defended by relentless opponents encased in everchanging environments filled with a massive cache of weapons, perks and upgrades to discover. Not only that, Synthetik also pushes the genre forward by bringing an interesting and engaging blend of mechanics - headshots, eject and active reload, weapon jamming, and heat management. These add even more excitement and tension to a challenging game; every successful quick reload brings an express delivery of bullet hell; every fumble could mean the end.
