You might play as a tiny creature, but this recently released RPG has massive scopes. There are endless opportunities in the game to keep its players entertained. The furry characters might give you the misconception of the game to be a child’s play. But it is not. There are several places you can go and too many things to do. It may even become overwhelming for you at times. So without further ado, let’s dig into more details in this cute yet ambitious game.
Biomutant and its post-apocalyptic world with a pinch of kung-fu fable comprising Unreal Engine 4 are developed by Experiment 101 and published by THQ Nordic. The release of Biomutant has been facing delays since its original release date in 2018. The Ex-Avalanche Studios staff came together in 2015 to work on this Action RPG. Since then, it has only been played at trade shows and promoted at the same. It lastly got released on 25th May this year (2021). It is a role-playing game with non-linear gameplay. The unintentional delay led to anticipation. Nevertheless, to say the anticipation helped the game to become a favorite among players shortly.
Before we jump into the main stuff, let’s understand where you can play this RPG, this game can be played on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Series S, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One. Let us have a sail through the things you need to know before you start playing –
Do Not Get Drowned
First of all, try to avoid swimming. Swimming is the slowest way to travel in Biomutant. It can be even worse if you get drowned. Also, you might get drowned if your energy bar starts decreasing. However, you can avoid all of this if you follow a tricky step. Just hit the map button and jump upwards from the waterbody. This will ensure fast traveling and your safety as well.
Focus On the Main Quest
When you complete the tutorial section of Biomutant, you might feel a sudden urge to go anywhere. But, wait a minute, we have got a better idea for you. Start with completing the main quest. It will shower you with some significant upgrades. You might even get access to several other NPCs. These NPCs can send you amazing sidequests leading you to unlock mech pretty.
Aura Doesn’t Always Have To Be Evil
You will slowly understand the importance of a character’s aura in Biomutant. This is a major distinction of the game. Whether the aura is pushed towards darkness or lightness will largely depend on your choices. Based on your aura, the NPC dialogue and expectation of in-world characters will change too. Dark isn’t equal to evil. It can also mean you did not make the right choices.
Make Sure Your Choice Doesn’t Matter With A Simple Strategy
Your choices will have inevitable impacts, but there is a way to dodge them. Here it goes – if you decide correctly with which tribe you need to side. This will not damage anything, and the impact will be outlined onscreen before even you choose an option. This is not an irreversible decision. It is not as serious a decision as it seems.
Watch Enemies Fight Among Themselves
No doubt, many of the enemies in Biomutant are tough to beat. Fortunately, many enemies will be fighting among themselves than you. However, this is limited to few enemy groups. In such a situation, keep on watching the enemies fight. Once one of them comes out as the winner, you can fight them if they want.
Craft the Build, But With Ease
Starting from defining your class’s genetic structures, style, fur color, and resistances, deciding everything are vital. For example, if you choose melee build, you might want to devote yourself to Strength and Vitality attributes. In such a case, you should choose a sentinel or a saboteur as a class of yours.
Indulge In Upgrading Your Elemental Resistance Rather than Elemental Armor
in Biomutant You will come across multiple zones that have one sort of element or the other. This also makes them superficially inaccessible. There are four zones – cold, heat, radiation, and biohazard. This will have a side quest that will further lead you to armors. But, it may not be worth it! It might get you some bio points, which won’t help much. Rather don’t bother going after these armors.
“Surf” Spots = Safety In Biohazard Zones
As the name suggests, these zones will be harmful to players. But, they are enriched with rewards, from loot to bio points. Thus, when you are lured into these zones, here is how you can decrease the danger of the zone – go to the waterbody and stay there. This will surely lessen the damage rate.
Opt for the Bio Suit
Once you feel you are getting accustomed to your gears and skills, you can get the Bio Suit. You can get one of these by heading to any green gas clouds to get your hands on the quest to find the suit. You can go on exploring Bio Nucleus 6D or farm bio points when you get this bio-suit.
Collect Bio points At Bio Nucleus 6D
in Biomutant You will find Bio Nucleus 6D to the northeast of the Mukadorpus Outpost. This is where you have a decent chance of getting amazing gears. It also has some enemies who will give you the chance to win some Bio points. You can later use these to achieve perks and new mutations. If you are lucky enough, you can even level up your resistance.
Try Not To Fall From Wires
At some point, you will have to find openings and tread wires, to travel from a place to other. While traveling on these wires, you may fall off from them. You may want to avoid going back to the ground. Instead, try to jump up and get on the wire again. This will not only save you time, but it is far more convenient.
Jump from Heights Without Damage
Players have become too careful of falling from playing so many games. You will gradually get to know that when you jump or fall off a great height, your health will hardly be damaged. The maximum that can happen is a bit of stagger when you land from a height, but your health will not be damaged. The best part of jumping is that it is convenient.
After some time, you will have way too many unused gears. You can do two things with them either sell them or scrap them. Sell any gear that is above 2000 worth and scrap anything below that. Collecting resources to craft gears can be a tricky job at times. Thus, make sure what you are selling.
Turn Off The Narrator
It is a lengthy game, and someone constantly narrating can be annoying for you. It may even make it hard for you to concentrate. But, you can put a stop to it or at least decrease its speed. You can go unbothered by turning the narrator completely off and wander off to explore the world of this RPG.
Hunt the Munsters
If you have chosen to go for the main quests, you will face Moong Munster. This is the one who will send you to Munster Hunt. He will even reward you with a key leading to a vault. This vault can be one of the most important loot and a quality weaponry stronghold. Even try returning the monster’s feces to the Moong Munsterhunter to delight him. Yes, it’s weird, but it works like a charm!
Gain All Psi Power
Once you start playing this game, you will know Psi is a fantastic ability. It is even more important who heads for the Psi-Freak build. Earn every Psi power in your sight only if you have the gray moral compass. Choosing auras will also give you access to Psi powers. Many of these are connected with light or dark points.
Know-How to Avoid Open-World Combat
Hey, you do not have to fight every enemy you pass by! You will be able to ride just past them without them batting an eye! Even if they do, they will lose interest in seconds. Ensure what you want, reach a location, or get into encounters. This strategy will not apply to enemies lingering at locations you want to reach.
Change Your Look Mid-Game
You will have too many options at the initial stage of the game. Many will choose according to their preference, but also get bored after some time. It may have an impact on the stats of the hero. You can change the appearance of your character mid-game if it seems to be monotonous for you. Head to the mutation pools, and you will know what to do next!
Learn the Best Moves
You will gradually get introduced to moves like Wung-fu. This is by far the best move in the game. Wung-fu has four attacks Ground Slam, Rapid Shot, Turtle Strike, and Klonk Bonk. All of the attacks are useful, but Turtle Strike and Klonk Bonk are the best. First, slam the enemies with Klonk Nonk. Then, slow down enemies with Turtle Strike and throw some risk-free punches.
Search for Other Environmental Suits
Bio Suits may be the significant one, but you can’t undermine the importance of other environment suits. Encountering a hazard will let you achieve a quest that will further lead you to a place the suit is located. However, activating the satellite that directs you to the suit requires you to go through a hard fight.
Reinstate the Health of Mini-Bosses
While you are exploring the world, you will face enemies with health bars. These will not be as tough as the main bosses but stronger than the usual enemies. You may want to quit mid-fight, but this will not be a wise decision. Rather try to stick and heal at a safer distance from the enemy and win the battle at last.
Ki Spark is the Best
Undoubtedly some biogenetics and Psi-powers are amazing but hard to master. But, Ki Spark is the one you must be a pro at. You will need at least 30 light aura to achieve it. Just when you unlock it, you will be doing an unimaginable amount of damage to several enemies. So, focus on the light aura and save these Psi points.
Gliding does make traveling even more exciting, and it is the same with Biomutant. Take full use of the glider wagon to ensure faster traveling. Gliding makes your gaming experience even better. You will have to earn this glider through side quests. Complete the “Mirage” to lay your hands on an air glider.
Get Klawbar and Klonkfist Updates
These items will help you to open secret areas. But, you will have to upgrade Klonkfist and Klawbar to get access to these areas. Then, you will come across a place you aren’t allowed to access. This is when you will get quests. These quests will allow you to upgrade both items. Try your hand at it to open up new secrets.
Update Gear By Capturing Outposts
You will have to go on capturing Outposts. It is by far a main activity in the game. But, if you do the same at the early stage of the game, you might even win yourself an upgrade bench. You can use this to invest all the materials you have collected this long and update your gear. Then, go on revisiting these outposts to upgrade your gears and weapons. This ensures you are always ahead in the game.
These are just only suggestions, and your plans to play Biomutant may differ from this. But, keeping in mind all of these while you play can benefit you in ways you would hardly imagine. The important thing in this game is exploration. Keep on exploring as much as you want and can. It is a huge world with something or the other for you to discover at every nook and corner. Of course, winning the game is important, but exploring this giant world can be an extraordinary experience for every player out there.
