The Surge 2 Tutorial Guide (Beginner)

The Surge 2 Tutorial Guide (Beginner)


hello guys and welcome to my tutorial
guide for the game the Serge – so I’ve got a couple of hours into this game and
I wanted to highlight what I’ve learnt to save you time to let you hit the
ground running as they say now the first thing is the first bit of the game
involves you escaping a prison follow the on-screen prompts learn a little bit
about the combat but what I’m gonna show you in this guide is the everything you
might have missed and just go over a little bit of detail but it is still a
beginning guide so I’m playing with an Xbox controller so what I’ve got so far
I’ve got you can see I’ve got a little bit of gear rockweed at some I’ve got
some implants and so on I’m gonna explain how all of this works now to
summarize this game the mechanics of this game think of it as a Dark Souls
clone but with different elements changed so for example this med bay is
equivalent to the bonfire you come to a med bay in order to apply your tech
scraps think of them equivalents of soul so basically to level up and you can
also assign points to health stamina and battery efficiency battery efficiency is
used for your injections and ideally for healing I’ll show that in in combat in a
sec when you’re looming around the game
you’ll get these metal parts you as you saw what I just did you can disassemble
them and it will add to your tech scraps and what I recommend as well whenever
you’re next to a med bay Bank your tech scraps if you’re not going to use them
because the way works in this game as well if you die you drop your text craft
if you don’t get back to them in a certain time it’s usually about between
two three minutes then you lose them forever and what you can also do with
the tech scraps you can use them to buy upgrades for your gear so when you kill
enemies you can get recipes as you can see I’ve got a couple of armor sets so
so far I’ve got three pieces of the scavenger set and I’ve got three pieces
of the vaulters set they drop randomly when you kill mobs depending on which
part of the body you cut off which I’ll get to later on now I’ve crafted these
using materials I’m constantly picking up materials and I’ve also upgraded them
as much as I can there are some more upgrades I could do but you need to be
selective about what to actually upgrade and not to upgrade and so on so you can
see here I’ve got materials the materials required to the upgrade I’ve
also got the money you can see at the bottom left it says costs a thousand and
eighty I’ve got 2,200 so let me upgrade you have to hold the
bond okay as I’ve graded it cool so I’ve upgraded my arm piece now you have to
make the choice between upgrading your gear updating yourself you know try and
find a nice balance and also where you’re gonna put your points into for
health stamina and battery efficiency I personally put them equally between all
of the stats just for the sake of it now if I quickly show you combat we’ll go
over how you cut off a different element it sounds gruesome but it’s needed now
also what happens as per let’s say for example Dark Souls when you visit a med
bay all monsters respawn so in theory I
could for example kill this guy that’s kneeling over there come back to the med
bay and respawn him if I want so one thing that you can easily miss if you
want to target are free you can and to target different parts of the
body you have the body you have the left and right arm and you also have the head
you need to hit a direction on the AR stick after you’ve locked on so for
example if I want to target his left arm I need to press left they go you see its
target left arm if I want to target the right arm right the head like that now
the reason why you want to target different parts of the body is if you
want different parts of the bits to cut off so for example let’s say he’s using
a weapon you really really like and you would like to use it yourself so for
example I got this crazy-looking axe by doing just that from a monster in the
game what you do is you target whichever arm he’s holding weapon in so let’s
assume it see the right arm okay you keep attacking it so let me attack his
arm sorry so I’m starting now when the X when the prompt pops are make sure to
actually hold it so let’s let’s try and do that again and let’s hope it doesn’t
glitch like it just hit so basically if you want to farm let’s say for example
this mob dropped them every weapon you want but he didn’t drop the weapon for
you you could go back to your med bay you could reset and you could get it
this weapon is crazy by the way so now one thing to notice as well you see he’s
got two health bars the red one and the purple one the red one is obviously his
health the the purple one is kind of like a you can see about now it’s
flashing is kind of like a stag of gauze gorge so when it’s flashing it means
that he can do moves uninterrupted without being interrupted okay so I almost I didn’t do the
finishing blow I didn’t cut off anything so he will just drop normal gear you get
basically more gear if you finish them off with a combo so and one thing that
is for sure you should know for example let’s say target the head and then
target this arm and then target that on as on if you want to actually get a
combo you need to be consistent so let’s say for example I want to cut this guy’s
head off from the whole time you should be targeting the head and if you want to
switch target by the way you have to press LT after you’ve locked on save got
LT is what lets me do it okay so let me say I’m gonna go after this I want his
head okay so I’m gonna go after his head so I’m only attacking his head okay so
he died too quickly but if the prompt came up to attack him to hold X then I
would have now one thing you can also do as well if you approach slowly from
behind very slowly just walk and get close you see this red indicator on his
back that means you can get a backstab and you can do a massive amount of
damage to him so just like that so he barely even had a chance on my
kite his hat off as well so I really destroyed him by approaching him slowly
now like I said in this game is very very tough it is basically like a Dark
Souls so do not underestimate how much damage you can take and also as well
pick which weapons suit you well do you like slow hitting attacks you
like for example quick weapons okay so you see I wanted to cut off his arm so
that’s why I thought it is harm to begin with now what you can do is with the
weapons you can go into the menu you go to your your gear you see I’ve selected
the weapons now you can toggle your favorites so you can see here X toggle
favor what that means is is that when you quick switch between them it will
switch between your favorites so let’s say let’s get for that one in and get
rid of that one okay so when you press up on the d-pad it will only scroll
between the ones marketers favorite okay so let me go back gear let me get rid of
that one and put this one again right and then you can see it only is
targeting these weapons which is really useful why it’s really important to know
which weapons you have available to you at the time now one thing to notice as
well is that at the very bottom of the screen you have these free hot bars
you’ve got the red plus obviously means your health the green below that is your
stamina below that is actually your battery so and it charges up what you
can use a battery for is for your injections so for example you can see
right next to the hot bar to the bottom towards the right it says be to use the
injection but you can only use it if you have a battery so let me show you how
that charges up so let me find someone to attack I think that someone here
I am yep okay so you can see how the electricity is charging up okay now I’m
using B because it allowed me to heal a little bit now I could probably show you a better
example because you might have missed what I did so let me go here so for
example this blue item this will give me battery charge up okay so let me pick it
up so you see how now got two bars of the battery I can press B and you can
see is my injection is healing me I can press B again every few seconds and it’s
healing me now the thing is with this battery charger is that it will
eventually expire so if you don’t use it then it won’t stay there forever later
on you can get more talents and more gear and more whatever that will allow
you to upgrade your the battery efficiency so that is one of the stats
you get when you go to the medbay is battery efficiency so that you can
effectively do the injection more often so you can see now it’s actually it’s
expired so like I said the battery efficiency doesn’t stay there forever
now the other thing to know as well is how to do other things in the game so if
you want to run old a you can see it lets you run and then but it does use
stamina so do know how it’s taking your soundbar is going down in certain
situations also if you want to jump press L press down the L stick so in
combination this is how you sort of run and jump in case it’s needed in case
there’s any platforming that you need to do because there are some bits in this
game which do require that it does require you to run around and jump and
things like that now you can see here that you’ll find in
the game a lot of these doors to go back towards your mad base so it’s trying to
do you a favor later on to get you back to the medbay as quickly as possible so
try and learn out the the layout of the level remember when you use the medbay
it’s like using a bonfire intok so it will respawn all the mobs so be aware of
that it doesn’t mean don’t use it it just
means that just be aware it will restore your health feel gives you a chance to
do upgrades but it will also restore the mobs as well and yeah so I think guys
that’s a good way to start for a basic tutorial the general advice is if you want to
have a chance of getting the enemy’s weapons you cut off the weft the arm
which is holding the weapon which is usually their right arm if you want
other upgrades and components which will upgrade your gear then cut off or attack
the body or the the non-weapon arm if you want recipes as well maybe cut off
the head so but cutting off different parts of the body matters in this game
it matters a lot and you all find a good way of a good balance to it so as I said
before right steak target and then check which direction you want to go for so
now for body the different arms with the direction left and right and then the
head okay so that’s that’s it so that’s my basic tutorial for the surge – if you
have any questions about the game please let me know in the comments down below
and I’ll try my best to help you I’m also obviously going through this game
myself I’ve been having a hell of a time I said I’m a couple of hours into the
game so far I highly recommend this game it’s very very fun it’s very challenging
to say the least because you’ll have different types of mobs which are there
more and more challenging as you go along so for example soon into the game
you face mobs that have a shield to deal with the shield you have to hold your
attack so you see and then when you hold it it
does a lot more damage enough to break a shield but take note of the timing that
it only holds it for like what three or four seconds and those mods that have
this yields they tend to jump at you so be ready to dodge so jump around dodge
with a nice on if you want to block you hold elbe okay so that’s your block but
generally in these sort of games I tend to dodge rather than block and also as
well obvious quick attack RT is big attack so yeah so that’s it so
that’s all I can tell you right now about the surge – anyway guys if you
