In Archero it is all about survival and Ofcourse good items help you beat monster quicker with better items. But if you can’t really dodge properly chances are you can’t really go on higher chapters. This is a huge thing that we all have to do in Archero. We have to dodge attacks, monsters, road spike, etc.
But what if I told you that there is a better way to dodge that you may not be applying to your chapter runs? We’ll in this guide I will be giving you the best tips on how to dodge properly in Archero.
Watch Your Character
This does not apply for all chapters or monsters but it can apply to most. Watching your character when you’re dodging will enable you to react faster. Because if you watch the projectile fly towards you, you may prematurely dodge or you may dodge a bit too late.
Another reason why you should watch your character is if you watch the projectile you may just dodge and run into another projectile. I really recommend watching your character it’s easier to keep track of things that are heading towards you.
One thing to note where this doesn’t apply is the Scarecrow Boss. It’s better to watch his attacks from his pumpkins than watch your character moves all the time. Remember this doesn’t apply all the time but it applies to most enemies. As you get into later chapters you’re going to need to practice your eye coordination.
It gets harder once you have to track attack animations. So for a few examples, watching the Grim Reaper’s from chapter 5 as they’re about to throw their Death Scythes or watching the Dragons in chapter 3 as they’re about to breathe fire.
Don’t Do Full Motions
In most cases don’t do full-on movements for dodging. It’s a lot better to just use short, quick, and simple tapping movements.
For example, moving up, down, left, or right quickly to dodge projectiles which you can just do with a tap.
If you do a full-on dodge like running across the map you’re very likely to run into multiple attacks or projectiles. This is because when we’re dodging, we generally are just keeping an eye on one or two attacks we want to avoid. Pretty much for getting the attacks that may be from the sides or so on resulting in you running into them.
There are cases where you do need to run across the map or run somewhere else but for most short dodging movements will benefit you way more
Be Aggressive When Creating A Base
What I mean by a base is the place you have or own where you can move around freely to dodge. The larger space is the easier it is to dodge because you will have more room to move around.
Now here’s the important thing, when you want to create a base you have to clear the monster around that base and move there as quickly as you can. Don’t go there slowly because the faster you allow yourself to have that space the easier and safer it will be for you.
So be aggressive when you create a base for yourself and run to it if it is necessary.
Don’t Limit Your Dodging Direction
We all tend to have a certain direction where we dodge to and that will be even more defined the more you play. The obvious two directions are left and right and that is perfectly fine but in a lot of situations going up and down are also viable directions to dodge. So don’t limit yourself to left and right and know when to use them. Here’s a nice tip that I do and hopefully help you.
If I ever go forward, I always try to take a side. So let’s say forward right or forward left and then ill stay there for a short time and make sure the mobs will target that place. When they do I can just simply go back safely to where I was.
During all this time I was able to dodge them and damage them even more. So going forward and backward are also viable direction to dodge.
Don’t Panic, Stay Cool!
This is probably the most important rule in my opinion. Luckily in Archero you can’t get hit by a multiple shot at once. Because when you get hit, you usually have a second window for the second hit to connect.
So if you get hit, you still have a second to recompose and calm yourself.
Watch your character for faster reaction time, don’t do full-on dodging motions as you’re most likely going to run into other attacks and keep track of attack animations for relevant bosses and enemies.
All in all, if this sounds overwhelming don’t worry. The more you practice the better you’ll become especially for free-to-play players who need to dodge a lot more than those who have gear that can be pretty hard to get for the average player.
