Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Tips and Tricks

Keep on the Lookout for Components

Unlocking the Perks is one important feat in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. This gives you the advantage during engagements. When you get your first few basic and advanced components in Chapter 1, be sure to get the Components Localizer perk first. What the perk does is it gives your visor an indicator or tracking feedback if there are basic and advanced components in the area. These components usually also lead you to nearby unlockable outfit crates.

Utilize and Combine the Guardians’ Abilities As Much As Possible

You will rely on the other Guardians when you’re in battle. With Guardians Mode, you get to send direct commands to your team. The abilities are proven useful when you understand their use in battle. When there are enemies close together, use Groot’s Entangle ability to hold them in place, this will immobilize a group of enemies for a short period of time which gives you an opportunity to combine it with Rocket’s Cluster Flark Bomb for an area of effect (AoE) damage. Feel free to experiment with different types of combinations, you never know what you’ll discover.

Consistently Deal Damage For Better Combat Performance

Earning experience points to get Ability Points in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy can be a little challenging especially when you’re trying to unlock the other abilities. During combat, do not, in any way, stop attacking enemies. Deal as much damage as you can to increase your multiplayer and end the fight Marvelous(ly).

Always Stagger Enemies

Enemies take more damage when they’re staggered. Much like the previous tip, consistently attacking will increase the enemy’s stagger meter quickly, and even quicker when you combine your attacks with stagger effects from Guardians such as Drax. When the enemy’s stagger bar starts to blink and give a shimmering effect, be sure to target them first.
