Exploiting the weakness of enemies
The basis of the battle is to exploit the weaknesses of the enemy. Enemy demons have various resistances, and you can take advantage of the battle by hitting weak points and dealing a lot of damage. Ringo’s COMP can be equipped with the demons who are on their side, and the skills of the demons can be used directly.
Stack the devil and attack the Sabbath and enemies troops in style!
Stack is an ability that is new in Soul Hackers 2. If you exploit the weaknesses of the enemy, you can summon a demon on the spot. demons wait on the spot until the end of the turn, and at the end of the turn, Sabbath opens a feast by the command of Ringo. Attack the enemy all at once. The greater the number of stacked demons, the stronger the attack. Up to 16 can be stacked.
Pursuit is a skill that demons can learn. When a new demon joins Sabbath, there is a chance that a chase will occur. There are various effects such as giving an abnormal condition to the enemy at the time of pursuit and recovering allies. All of them have advantageous skills, so let’s aggressively aim for pursuit.
By modifying Ringo’s COMP, you will be able to use the commander skill. There are also special skills such as skills that have powerful effects that increase the power of Sabbath, change demons without consuming turns, and increase the number of actions. However, there are restrictions on the number of elapsed turns when using it, so be careful about the number of remaining turns and assemble your tactics, and use them when you need them.
