The Soulslike Steelrising casts you as a gear-powered automata into the French Revolution. The game is based on genre greats like Dark Souls, but also brings a lot of its own ideas into play. According to the genre you can expect tough fights and merciless boss fights.
Destroying barrels pays off!
In many action role-playing games there are destructible objects that provide you with useful items. Unlike the genre hobbyhorse Dark Souls, Steelrising is worth smashing the barrels and crates. In it you can vials, grenades and even Alchemy Capsules Find.
Therefore, smash every container and search for items. This saves you a lot anima essencethat you would have squandered in the boutique. Consumables that you don’t need can be sold in the boutique.
Don’t underestimate the power of grenades
Grenades are extremely useful consumables that you can use to fight enemies in Steelrising. There are five different ones grenade typeswhich are available in a simple version and in a reinforced version:
- incendiary grenades can set enemies on fire and deal damage over time.
- Frost Grenades Freeze opponents in place and incapacitate them.
- flash grenades cause enemies hit to suffer electrocution damage with each subsequent hit.
- Stun Grenades do no damage but stun targets for a few seconds.
- HE shells are filled with shrapnel and gunpowder and deal physical damage.
HE grenades deal physical damage, while elemental grenades deal damage of the respective element and status effects trigger. Almost every enemy is vulnerable to a certain element, take advantage of that!
However, the most useful grenades are the HE shells. These are so strong that you can even fight bosses with them. If you get stuck on a boss, you should go to the boutique and buy HE grenades for some Anima Essence.
Tips on the module slots in Steelrising
In addition to weapons and armor, you can equip the automata with various modules. Modules grant you various bonuses and increase overall combat efficiency. Total suit you four module slots available, which you manage in the character screen. You can find new modules in the game world or buy them in the boutique.
Before you can use a module slot, you must use so-called module key unlock. You can also find module keys in the open game world – so keep your eyes peeled! You unlock a slot for a module in the improvement menu for a vestal virgin.
Module slots can later be upgraded to a higher tier by consuming multiple Module Keys. Improved module slots can also hold stronger modules. For starters, we recommend that you unlock all four slots first, especially since you won’t find the big modules until later in the game anyway.
Improve the oil burette – this is how it works
That’s the oil burette Equivalent to the Estus Flask in Dark Souls. It is a healing item that heals a fixed percentage of your maximum life when used. At the beginning of the game you have three oil burettes at your disposal.
If you have used all of them, you have to rest with a vestal virginto regain the charges. However, resting on a vestal also brings back all enemies, so choose carefully. Sometimes it is wiser to seek the next vestal than to return.
The oil burette in the Vestal can be improved in two ways: On the one hand, the capacity, i.e. the charging, can be increased. For that you need Lavoisier catalyststhat you can find in the game world. On the other hand, you can increase the effectiveness, for which you need Lavoisier Boosters.
Equip yourself with enough oil vials
Especially at the beginning of the game you will find that you run out of oil burettes relatively quickly. Vials of pure oil can help. These useful healing items can be easily overlooked, since the game doesn’t draw your attention to it at the beginning.
Vials of Pure Oil heal over time. You can best use them in boss fights or with more difficult enemy groups. If you lose a large number of life points right away, you should of course use the oil burette.
Vials of Pure Oil can be found in crates or looted from enemies. You can also get vials at any time in the boutique to buy. Always have a few vials in your inventory before you face a boss.
Use your compass
The compass is one of the most important items ever. At the push of a button you can display important target markers for main tasks and side missions. You get the compass early in the game – it’s best to put it in the quick access belt.
Backtracking is worth it: Explore old areas
You will arrive later in the game unique tools, which are not only used in battle, but also help to get to the most remote corners of downtown Paris. You get the various tools after particularly difficult boss fights.
All special tools at a glance
- Bishop’s hook: Grappling hook, with which you can pull yourself to higher levels.
- Impulse of the Selenite: Allows particularly long jumps and dodges in the air.
- Alchemist’s Ram: Allows picking of rusty locks.
At the beginning of the game you will often come across paths and sections that are still inaccessible to you. Locked gates, crumbling walls and unbridgeable chasms block your way.
Do you have all special tools unlocked, you should definitely return to areas you already know and open up the previously closed areas. You will find useful items and powerful equipment there.
What is Game Assist Mode?
Steelrising is in standard mode a ruthless game that often causes moments of frustration. Newcomers to the Soulslike genre in particular will struggle at first. If you don’t feel like constantly dying and losing your collected Anima Essence, use the game assist mode.
When you start a new game, you will be asked if you want to enable Game Assist mode. However, note that some trophies in Steelrising (Guide) cannot be earned in this mode. On the next screen you can choose, among other things, how much damage your opponents do, whether you lose Anima Essence when you die or how quickly you regenerate your stamina.
