Take on opponents from lowly street fights all the way to all-star boxers in the big ring! Our Boxing Star cheats and tips will show you how to become just that!
Winning in Boxing Star is all about fighting smart and controlling your attacks. We will teach you how to box with finesse in our Boxing Star cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
Watch your stamina!
See the little EKG below your health meter? That your stamina meter. Whenever you throw punches and they whiff or get blocked, you will lose a little bit of stamina. The lower your stamina gets the slower your punches get, so do not let it drop too low!
If it hits absolute zero, your attacks will come out EXTREMELY slow. Do not forget to stop and rest for a bit to recover your stamina!
In a bind, if your stamina drops too low, you may get the option to grapple your opponent. Look for a yellow button that appears next to the dodge right button. You will put your opponent in a hold for a few seconds and while nothing comes of it, it can buy you time to recover stamina.
Use a mixture of attacks!
Your main attacks are jabs, hooks, and uppercuts. Jabs are fast but do little damage, while uppercuts are very slow but deal massive damage. Hooks are the in-between, and they are your go-to for decent damage. Do not use the same kind of attack several times in a row as you will become predictable – mix it up to keep your opponent on their toes!
You can unleash a relentless assault with jabs, or you can wait for your opponent to strike first then launch powerful counter attacks.
Remember that dodging hooks or uppercuts slows down time and presents you with a powerful counter attack opportunity! Landing counter attacks stuns your opponent, slowing their attacks and rendering them vulnerable to further damage!
Understand the complex skill system!
Be sure to check into Khari’s gym often to start up new training sessions. You will need all of the skill points you can get, because the skill system in this game is a very complex! You start off with one stance slot and one skill slot.
By the way, you can unlock an additional slot if you pay 50 gold, and since you get around 200 for free simply by starting the game, we highly recommend you buy another slot.
Skills come in one of four colors, and these colors determine what type the skill is. Green skills belong to the “Counter Master” attribute, and as you can guess by the name these skills focus on powerful counter attacks.
Purple skills belong to the “Stunner Hunter” attribute, which makes you deal more damage against stunned foes.
Blue skills belong to the “Stamina Burner” attribute, which powers up your attacks when you have high stamina.
Yellow skills belong to the “Lucky Puncher” attribute, which randomly powers up your attacks.
Picking the right skill set depends on how you like to box. Do you like play defensive and wait for your opponent to slip up? Try either Counter Master or Stunner Hunter skills. Do you want to box with some finesse? The Stamina Burner set is for you! Or are you a wild card where anything can happen? The Lucky Puncher might be the set for you.
On top of all of this, keep in mind that each stance is strong and weak against another. Green beats, yellow, yellow beats, purple, and purple beats blue. By simply having the stance with the advantage equipped, ALL of your attacks will deal increased damage.
Also, while you can mix and match skills freely, it is best to stick to one attribute. For example, if you equip a blue stance and blue skills, you will activate a synergy bonus and your skills will be enhanced.
Complete Sponsor sets for bonuses!
The four sponsorship each have their own unique bonuses that has a chance to activate depending on how much of their brand you have acquired. You can keep track of what you have by checking out each brand’s Collection List. Keep fighting and winning package deliveries to get more gear.
Do note that you do NOT need to actually have the gear in your inventory for it to count towards sponsorship progress. Once you get it for the first time, it is marked and counted towards your progress – you may use it for upgrade purposes if you wish.
