PixelJunk Shooter 2 is very similar to the original. It allows up to two players to control subterranean vehicles to rescue scientists trapped underground. Players must clear a path through rock, ice, and enemy ships using their ships missiles. Players must also manipulate water, magma, and a magnetic black liquid to reach survivors with the help of upgraded ships. If you don't reach the trapped scientists in time they will die. If enough survivors die, players are forced to restart the level.
A new foe introduced in PixelJunk Shooter 2 is darkness. If you stay in the dark too long you will be attacked by monsters. Also, alien stomach acid can eat through your ship if you don't rinse it away in a hurry. Shooter 2 also introduces two new suits, Light Suit and Hunger Suit. The Light Suit allows you to light up your environment to keep enemies away and the Hunger Suit allows you to "eat" through your environment like the popular game, Dig Dug.
