Biomutant: A guide for beginners without spoilers

So you got Biomutant, right? I didn’t enjoy the game as much as I expected (check out the reviews), but if you want to put up with some shortcomings, the experience is definitely appealing and can provide a certain amount of fun. There is none. If you’re planning on taking the plunge, Biomutant has a lot to do and deciding where to go first and what to prioritize can be a daunting task. To start your adventure on the right foot, I’ve put together this spoiler-free beginner’s guide with some general tips and advice.

Don’t be stressed about choosing a tribe or class

Biomutant starts with creating a character. This includes the selection of that tribe. This determines the proficiency and general appearance of a particular statistic. Classes, on the other hand, come with special abilities or perks such as Psi-Freak’s SparkBall attack.

Don’t put too much emphasis on being tied to a particular way of playing. Most of these templates are fluid and you won’t miss any particular perks (not a big deal). You can adjust any template to your liking, depending on where you invest your ability points. Saboteur may be the best class for dual wield melee weapons, but that doesn’t mean that other classes can’t effectively dual wield. When it comes to choosing a tribe, first and foremost, feel free to choose based on your appearance.

You can change the style and color of the fur by going to a barber named Trim. The game doesn’t direct you to him, so if you find yourself regretting your appearance early on, find a trim towards the center of the eastern map of Urfidorf Outpost, just outside the small town Flibberdit. can do.

Find protective clothing instead of upgrading resistance

Some areas of the map are plagued by deadly environments Effects of heat, cold, radioactivity, etc. You can spend your time investing valuable biopoints to upgrade your natural resistance to these zones, but that’s a fool’s errand. The first time you step into these dangerous biomes, you’ll trigger quests to find protective clothing for each zone. Do not get in the way of you to carry out these missions as soon as possible.

They are primarily simple things that don’t take too long to complete, and rewards are proceedings that provide complete invincibility to the corresponding biome. Best of all, you can save up to 5 outfits in the gear menu, so you can easily switch suits. Biopoints are also used to purchase new biogenetics, a special power category. Why waste points and increase cold hardiness from 1% to 3% when you can learn how to make huge mucous bubbles instead?

Don’t be afraid to change your aura

The aura is your morality and swings between light and dark depending on your choices and actions. It takes the form of a simple point system, with some Psi-Powers, Other Super Power Tiers can only be earned if your aura is at a certain level in either way.

If you’re a pair of shoes aimed at that dark-only psychokinesis, all you have to do is do enough wrong to raise your level of darkness, and vice versa. It’s very easy. Outside of the dialogue options, there are small animals roaming the world you can catch. When you do, you are given the option to kill them or spare no effort. No matter what you choose, points will be awarded for each placement. This is a quick and easy way to effectively grind your alignment.

There are other ways to manipulate this metric (such as praying to a bright / dark shrine), but the important thing is that it’s very easy to swing from super-evil to super-good without significant impact. That is. Or at least the result you care about. The story as a whole is nothing special, so who cares about what your choice brings? It’s even more fun to be a morally fluid powerhouse with the full weapons of Psi-Powers.

How to turn down a narrator

If you’re like me and tired of the narrator’s constant interjections outside the cutscene, you can enter audio settings and reduce the frequency of his bunter through the sliders. I didn’t discover this until after hours. Once I found it, I dropped the suction cup to zero. You’ll still hear from him often, as he tells stories and characters, but anything that undermines his presence can help. Believe me: You haven’t missed anything.

Priority automaton upgrade

To upgrade a grasshopper-like automaton, you need to interact with Mirage, a man like Kung Fu Panda who appears in different areas of the map. He stands out like a painful thumb, so if you find him, drop everything and chat with him. He treats you in a flashback battle sequence, but regardless of whether you win or lose the battle, you unlock the new features of the automaton. There are a total of 5 flashlights unlocked from the beginning. Based on its usefulness, we recommend unlocking the rest in the following order:

  1. Glider-Can glide a short distance.
  2. Health Syringe-A reusable consumable that replenishes your health.
  3. Turret-Automation automatically attacks enemies during combat.
  4. Boost-A reusable consumable that increases damage output.

You don’t have to hold down the button to slip

Once you have the glider, glide while instinctively pressing the jump button. This is how video games work. You don’t have to. Once tapped, it will glide (slightly) hands-free. It sounds like a small thing, but I didn’t notice it for a while, so once I tried it, I was able to play more comfortably. There is no damage from falling, so it’s okay to dive to the ground, but at least your thumb will break.

Don’t trust the “Cleared Area” message

Most areas show the type of loot you have and the amount of loot you can find. If you find everything listed, you will see the message “The area has been cleared”. Don’t believe me There are still a lot of decent loot in the area and for some reason it doesn’t fit this metric. When you understand the game in its own words, you miss out on consumables, crafting materials, and, of course, even weapons and equipment. Keep digging until you really clean all your desks, chests, or lockers before proceeding.

Break before buying

When it comes to selling unwanted weapons and gear and disassembling them for parts / materials, I generally found recycling much more valuable. For example, both crafting and certain missions where NPCs require 20 trees will always require a healthy supply of materials. In addition, upgrading equipment on a designated bench requires a large amount of resources.

The store sells only parts, not finished weapons. Some vendors occasionally offer powerful muzzles and blades, but often find the same number of parts during exploration, which is rare and powerful. Especially in the middle of the game, I rarely found off-the-shelf weapons that were better than the tools I created. You should still carry a decent chunk of change, but I didn’t find much reason to open my wallet overall. But I always needed more crafting material.

How to quickly track tribal wars

Resolving the Tribal Wars is one of the main pillars of Biomutant’s campaign. It’s not great because it doesn’t feature the content of a true story. This is just an exercise to occupy multiple outposts of each tribe through a bland series of battles.

After dealing with the first two tribes, you can get bored with them and you have to deal with a total of five tribes. However, there is a quick way to track the process.This is probably the closest to spoiler But I don’t think it’s one. Again, this element of the game has virtually no real story. If you really don’t want to know anything, come back now. If you don’t mind and want to speed up the very annoying elements of Biomutant, read on.

During the final confrontation, I chose to persuade the leaders of the first two tribes to surrender peacefully (whatever you say if your charisma is at least in your 50s). This is incredibly easy because you hear.) When I united the second tribe, I got a message that the remaining three tribes recognized my power and were willing to surrender collectively. You can choose to accept this surrender or continue to conquer individually as before. I chose the former option, and I make you a kid that the other three tribes simply didn’t give up. This soon ended the tribal war and opened the rest of the territory for me to explore peacefully.

It’s wild that such a big and essential part of the game can basically be skipped this way. Again, the Tribal Wars mission is very boring and I have a lot of other work to do, so I was grateful for it. I’m not sure if the same option would occur if I took a more evil approach (I wouldn’t be surprised), but if I wanted to end the tribal war sooner or later, this would make it me It happens because of what I did.

  • Mainly maintains a light aura.
  • Always convince the leader to surrender.
  • Instead of imprisoning the enemy leader, let him join you.

This isn’t an exact science, but if you follow that template, you might only have to fight two tribes instead of five.

Hopefully this advice will make your adventure a little more enjoyable. Let us know in the comments if you are playing Biomutant and what you think of the game so far.
