Archero is a relatively tough game to crack, so our guide will hopefully prepare you for the challenges to come! Let’s get started with our Archero cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
Stick and move!
The number one mechanic that you must absolutely get down is to always stay mobile. We know this sounds obvious, but there will be times where you think a bullet is not going to hit you for some time and you wait to dodge – try not to do this too often!
It is a bad habit and most of the time you will end up taking some damage, so it is a good idea to just keep moving a lot.
In some room layouts you may find walls and obstacles littered about. You can take cover behind these things, but do take note that some enemies can lob their shots over walls!
Pop out for a couple of shots, then roll back into cover for some easy damage. Just watch out for the enemies that try to get closer to you as they will eventually find their way to you.
Get the Circle skills!
“Circle” skills are skills that put two rotating orbs around your archer. You can get a Fire Circle, which makes fire orbs ignite any enemies that get close. There is also an Ice Circle, a Bolt Circle, and so forth.
These auras make it so that you have close-range options in case enemies get a little too close for comfort – which will happen a lot when you start to reach the more cramped layouts!
There is also a fourth aura called the Shield Circle, which makes two shields rotate closely around your archer. They will block shots upon contact, so this is a really useful skill to have. There is a bit of luck involved, but who knows – it might save your life!
Get multishot as soon as possible!
There is also a list of skills that modify your basic shot in some way. You can fire a shotgun blast, fire an arrow behind you, or make your arrows bounce off of walls. They are all great, but the one you should get as soon as you see it is multishot. This skill makes you fire two arrows at once, essentially doubling your damage output!
Get the stat boosts from the angel!
Every other checkpoint you will come across an angel. The angel offers you two power ups, but you can only pick one. One power up is a stat related option, like your attack speed, critical chance, and base damage.
The other power up is simply a heal. While that is important, enemies drop hearts at a fairly decent rate, so as long as you are careful you can get by.
