Scarlet Nexus is out now and if you are new to this genre then there are a couple of things that you should keep in mind. In this Scarlet Nexus beginner’s guide, we are going to give you some tips and tricks that are going to make the game easier for you.
Scarlet Nexus Tips And Tricks
Learn About Characters Via Bond Episodes
Once you have progressed the game enough, you will unlock the hideout. This is a place where you can fast travel to between missions. Here you can heal, get items and even interact with characters. Interacting with some characters will trigger the bond episodes which allow you to learn more about them. If you are interested in the characters or the lore then this is something that we recommend checking out.
Even if you are not interested in the side stories, you can use this to increase the bond level of your team. A higher bond level means better SAS effects. A higher bond level means better support from your team as characters will heal and revive you more often.
Check Messages Regularly
Some of the bond episodes can be triggered via messages. So be sure to check them regularly in order to increase your party bond level as fast as possible.
Getting More Plug-In Slots
You can get more plug-in slots by heading over to the shop and looking for the Plug-in parallelization program under the exchange tab. This will allow you to unlock another plug-in slot for a teammate which will allow you to use more plug-ins.
Getting Weapons Via Side Missions
While exploring the world, you will find NPCs that have quest markers on them. You can interact with them to get side missions and some will reward you with weapons. These are not the best weapons in the game but you can get them if you want something quick.
Skills To Get Early On
Other than the combo skills, we recommend getting the charged attack skill which is going to help you deal with enemies much faster. You can get another charge level down the skill tree. We also recommend getting the additional plug-in slot and concurrent SAS activation skills early on. We also recommend getting the quick item skill if you find yourself using a lot of items.
These are going to depend on how you play and what you like but we recommend getting the power enhance and forcefield plug-ins. Later on, you can get the body enhance attack plug-in which keeps enemies from interrupting your attacks.
These are the tips and tricks that we recommend you keep in mind when playing Scarlet Nexus. If you want to learn more then you can check out our guide on how you can heal.
