With Ghostrunner promising to crush both you and your ego, we think you should be a little wary. If you expect this to be an easy ride, you will be crushed. So download these tips and tricks to give you a little edge over the tower you’ll soon be fighting against.
Accept Death – Ghostrunner
It’s time to face reality. Unless you’re a fast runner or platform enthusiast, you’re dead. So many, so much. Use this to your advantage and watch the original deaths on each new puzzle to know the learning points they are having. Don’t expect to beat a room on the first try, map out the angles of attack and map out your own style of execution instead.
Once you have a better understanding of the layout, then start pushing for the win. As you become more familiar with the game, you may find yourself developing a flow in movement. The gameplay will feel a lot smoother, resulting in fewer deaths and more satisfying kills, but there’s definitely an initial learning curve to get through.
Keep Changing It Up
As you progress through the game, you may find your particular build struggling in certain environments. Cut and change modifications on your cyborg to keep things fresh and try new approaches to challenges.
With the story going, you’ll have more space to play Tetris, which means more advanced modding and more complex strategies. You never know what combinations can get you up the tower, and the maps are open enough for a variety of styles to have their own place.
Stay Airborne – Ghostrunner
The above does not allow you to access the dash’s slowing effect while running on the ground does not. If you find yourself rushing towards enemies on the ground, you may be reducing your ability to dodge, close, and engage your own target. Don’t forget to combine dash with your other abilities – dodging a shot before blinking quickly on a group can be the difference between clearing an area and not.
Time The Attacks – Ghostrunner
The sword blocks bullets even if you don’t have reflexes enabled. It only takes one slash to deflect hits if you can’t do an aerial dodge. Practice timing shots to come in early in the game as this is a great skill to get a shot. Even if you don’t return the bullet at the enemy, it will give you space to close the distance before the attacker fires the next shot.
Complete The Level
Unfortunately, the best advice is the most frustrating aspect of the game. Don’t forget that all progress will reset when you exit Ghostrunner to desktop, so make sure you complete a level before deciding to quit, or you’ll find yourself back at the full start mapset on reboot, which can be extremely annoying.
Remember that you will eventually come up with your own strategies to deal with the multitude of problems you will face here. However, these tips will help you find your feet in this scary world and may even give you a chance at success.
