Rumbleverse gameplay tips for beginners

Below are gameplay tips for playing Rumbleverse. These tips are intended for beginners to battle royale games, but there are also tips specific to Rumbleverse.

1. Run through the playground as a pseudo-tutorial in Rumbleverse

The card with the attack priority system and the benefits you have unlocked.

Rumbleverse has a quasi-tutorial called the Playground. It is the third playable mode on the main screen (switch with Square or X, press Triangle or Y to play). You can choose to play with or without the ability to deal damage and take damage from other players in the Playground. It might be best to play without the option on to avoid annoying interference (you’ll respawn if you get knocked out).

As you walk around you will see red and bright lights shining from the ground to the sky. There are several monitors in the clearly lit areas that will give you basic tips on how to play, such as the tips above for landing a basic melee attack combo. The red light areas are where you can experiment with different weapons.

You can also practice on the Playground Bots. Most won’t attack you (except in the dodge area), so you can practice on them as much as you want. Go for combos, which will build up your Superstar meter (the blue meter with a star) so you can get into Superstar mode. You can then perform a super attack with Triangle or Y. Even better, the more damage you deal the bots, the more perks you unlock, which are activated during solo and duo play.

2. Customize your character before jumping into solo or duo play

The character has been customized with PlayStation Plus exclusive boxing gear.

Rumbleverse has a plethora of customizable items for your character. You can change your gear, hair, skin color and more. Many options are locked at the beginning, although some can be purchased in the store. However, you still have a good number to start with and you will unlock more as you play the game. PlayStation Plus subscribers can unlock the featured boxing gear.

Rumbleverse also has an in-game store where you can purchase customizable items. You must have what the game calls Brawlla Bills, the in-game currency. There will also be a battle pass that will most likely come out when Season 1 officially launches on August 18.

3. Keep an eye on your stamina and health gauges

Eating some meat to restore HP.

While playing, keep an eye on the two (three with the Superstar) meters at the bottom of the screen. The yellow-orange bar is your stamina bar, which runs out of sprinting and climbing walls. The green meter is your health meter.

The stamina is replenished naturally, but slowly. Health is not replenished unless you use an item. You can eat food items such as the whole turkey pictured and other consumables such as drinks and drinks. There are also stamina potions that continuously replenish your stamina for the duration of the effect.

It’s always great to have at least one health and stamina item with you so you can escape tricky situations in no time. Keep in mind, though, that consuming an item will make you either move slowly or stay in place while your player literally eats or drinks the item. To use an item, pick it up with Circle or B, or use the D-Pad to grab it from your inventory, then use Square or X.

4. Avoid conflicts as much as possible

The best way to survive in Rumbleverse is by: avoid conflict where possible. Of course it’s fun to fight with others and take them out, but that also leaves you open to the same. Try to stay high and jump over buildings and roofs to avoid as many conflicts as possible. If you must join in, escape quickly when the opportunity arises.

The image above shows how to get to the top six, but until that point, only one full battle had started. Avoiding conflict can lead to reaching the top five, top two, or even victory, which earns more glory points (essentially experience points).

You will get the screen after the match once you are eliminated or won. On the first run, runner-up was achieved while completing all three initial challenges, and shot up to level two once the challenges glory points were claimed. The more damage you deal, the more eliminations you make and the higher your final placement will lead to more points.

5. Avoid the edges of the card if the ring shrinks

As with all Battle Royale games, the playable area of ​​the map shrinks at certain time intervals. In the end it will be a small radius that will really only accommodate the last two fighters. While avoiding conflict, go to the center of the map (in general) to avoid the shrinking map. The last area isn’t always in the center of the map, but it’s more likely to be in the center Surface of the card than the edges.

If you get caught in the ring, you have ten seconds to reach the new playable area before being eliminated. You can still be attacked by fighters trying to avoid the same fate, so watch out!

6. Master Dodge and Block

To maximize your chances of survival, master dodge and block. There are several ways to dodge (with L2+R2 or LT+RT) and you can block with R2 or RT. As you play through the playground, there is a dodge area where you can practice and learn about the different types of dodge. The best thing about dodging is that it gives you a moment of invulnerability as you dodge. However, dodging uses stamina and if you block too much, your block will break. There are also unguarded attacks that can ruin your game plan.

The most basic type is the backflip, which is simply triggered with R2+L2 or RT+LT. You just scroll backwards. If you press the buttons with a direction, you dodge with a roll to the side you enter.

There are two types of bailout dodges: Bailout on Hit and Bailout on Miss. Bailout on Hit allows you to do a dodge after a hit to avoid the recovery period after landing a combo. During an attack, just hit R2+L2 or RT+LT. Bailout on Miss does the same, but on a missed attack. Both use more stamina than a simple dodge, but Bailout on Miss uses the most staminaso avoid that when you can.

Dodging and blocking can turn the tide of battle against your opponent(s). Master them!

7. Land super attacks, but you’re vulnerable if you miss

You build up your Superstar gauge by making attacks and collecting blue stars on the map. If it’s full, you can go in Superstar mode with R2+Circle or RT+B. In Superstar mode, your health and stamina regenerate and your attacks are stronger. Furthermore, you can perform a super attack, which cannot be blocked when it lands, to deal massive damage and possibly take out an opponent. However, if you miss the super, you’ll be vulnerable to attacks and even a super yourself!

8. Complete Challenges for Easy Glory Points

You will receive daily challenges that you can reroll if you have any rerolls left. At launch, there were simple challenges such as completing 12 long jumps or climbing walls. These daily challenges will reward you with 50 fame points each, an easy way to level up. After completing the first three, two more (pictured) appeared, making it look like there could be a total of five daily challenges to complete.

The weekly challenges will likely disappear once Season 1 starts on August 18.

Now you have your complete operating guide to Rumbleverse. Master dodging and blocking, land your super attacks and win!
