Ghostrunner is out now and it is the Cyberpunk game that you can play while you wait for Cyberpunk 2077. The action and combat mechanics of this game are pretty different as compared to what you might be used to. In this Ghostrunner beginner’s guide, we are going to give you some useful tips and tricks that should make you better at the game and help you win.
Ghostrunner Tips And Tricks
The following are some useful tips and tricks that are going to keep you alive and will help you win. So keep them in mind.
Do Not Stand Still
Ghostrunner is a pretty fast-paced game and we recommend moving around all the time. You should always be in motion. The puzzles and enemy attacks force you to be on the move.
Enemies can kill you in a single blow so we recommend moving around so that getting hit is a bit harder. Puzzles will require you to jump and use your slow-motion ability so you should not stand still for them either.
Time Your Attacks
Spamming the attack button is not going to get you anywhere in the game. You will need to time your attacks, dodges, and parry accordingly. Your attacks have a cooldown and enemies can counter your moves and kill you in a single strike. Take your time, time your attacks, and strategize in order to progress faster.
Killing Enemies With Automatic Weapons
When you are up against enemies that have automatic weapons, we recommend taking cover or wall-running. Wall-running affects the aim of the enemies and they will not be able to hit you. Wait for them to reload and strike.
Killing Enemies With Shields
Enemies with shields can be a bit difficult to deal with. You cannot hit the shields as that will knock you back. You need to strike from above or kill them from behind. Killing them from above is a bit easier.
Use Slow Motion When Possible
Ghostrunner allows you to slow downtime. A tip for when you are playing Ghostrunner is that when you jump, you should use the slow-motion ability when possible. This is going to slow down enemy attacks and incoming bullets as well. Doing so will allow you to get out of a level with the least number of deaths.
Get The Tempest Powerup
There are four powerups in the game that you can get but we recommend getting Tempest as it will let you keep your skill energy when you kill two or more enemies with Tempest.
Killing Regenerates Energy
At times you will find yourself out of energy. While it does regenerate over time, killing enemies makes it replenish much faster. This will allow you to use some abilities more often.
