APB Vendetta features asymmetric dual-wielding, slow-motion, melee combat and a combo system that encourages players to perform stylish takedowns utilizing character-specific finishing moves. Sliding, diving, wall-running and performing parkour-like acrobatics while racking up match bonus points is core to the gameplay.
