Steelrising: Beginner's Guide
If you are new to the world of Steelrising and are wondering how to have a good start, here are some tips.
- Use dodging - during combat, dodging is fundamental to survival; enemies are best attacked from the side and from behind;
- Use surprise attacks - if you target an enemy and approach them from behind, you will be able to deal critical damage; weaker enemies will die from the first blow, however, even stronger ones will be significantly weakened;
- Smash crates and barrels - there are a lot of things to smash in the world of Steelrising; it's worth taking a moment to do so, as there may be useful items in them;
- Check every corner - Steelrising doesn't have many diverging paths, but it's still worth looking around, as some of the nooks and crannies of the map may have various hidden useful items, letters that increase your knowledge of the lore, and mini-tasks that aren't marked in the journal;
- Spend your Anima essence - spend Anima essence regularly on developing your character and buying useful items, because if you die, you may lose it.
