Biomutant: Beginner's Guide Biomutant guide, walkthrough

This page of the game guide you will find some beginner tips for Biomutant. The following tips and tricks cover topics such as winning fights, world exploration, and character development. We recommend that you read them if you are going to play Biomutant for the first time and are just getting to know the gameplay mechanics.

When creating a new character, think through all the steps well

Biomutant is a game with quite a strong emphasis on RPG elements - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

Biomutant is a game with quite a strong emphasis on RPG elements. When you create a new character, you not only have to decide on the appearance, but also make the first important decisions regarding the stats and planned play style (e.g. tank, melee hero, high-mobility ranged attack character).

Pay particular attention to the character creator steps for determining the hero's race, allocating attribute points, and choosing a character class (each class offers different passive stat bonuses). The game will not allow you to change your starting choices, although as you earn experience, you will have the freedom to allocate development points and unlock mutations and powers. You can find more information about creating a new hero on the pages Character Creation and Stats and Attributes, among others.

Activate special weapon attacks as often as possible

During battles, look out for messages in the bottom right corner of the screen about the possibility of activating a special attack - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

During battles, look out for messages in the bottom right corner of the screen about the possibility of activating a special attack. These are much stronger than standard attacks and some of them may also have areal effects.

In addition to dealing more damage, frequent use of special attacks can lead to a Super Wung-Fu charge, which is symbolized by one of three icons on the screen. This is another way to increase your effectiveness on the battlefield. You can find more tips on how to fight in the Combat chapter.

Have varied special powers at the ready

Special powers are a variation of active mutations in the game - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

Special powers are a variation of active mutations in the game. These are unique attacks that use the main character's ki energy (which works like mana). You can use Bio and Psi points earned throughout the game to unlock new special powers. Each new ability requires spending a certain number of points of that type.

Once the power is unlocked, you can assign it to a button on the pad for easy activation. You may have 4 of these abilities on standby at any given time. Try to make them quite diverse, such as allowing you to attack enemies with acid and flames, focusing on weakening single targets, or area attacks. This will allow you to rely on them more effectively if the situation on the battlefield changes. For example, if you meet a group of enemies or a monster with very high resistance to a certain element. More information and tips can be found on the pages Mutations / Special Powers and Bio-Points and Psionic Points - How to get them?

Practice parrying strikes

In Biomutant the system of parrying strikes is similar to other similar games – the appearance of a lightning bolt icon over the head of the opponent suggests their desire to attack - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

In Biomutant the system of parrying strikes is similar to other similar games – the appearance of a lightning bolt icon over the head of the opponent suggests their desire to attack. You can then react to this by trying to parry the blow. This action will, of course, only succeed if the pairing is done at the perfect time. What's more, you can counterattack by mounting a powerful attack or even launching a stunned opponent into the air. You can find more information about this on a separate page - Pairing strikes - how does it work?

If you can't parry an attack or don't want to take too many risks, you can also rely on dodging and staying in constant motion. Both of these techniques can also be effective in avoiding taking damage, although they will not allow you to make strong counterattacks of your own.

Heal the hero during the fight if he has lost too many health points

In combat, you should keep an eye on your hero's health bar regularly, especially if you are fighting stronger opponents or mini-bosses/full-fledged bosses - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

In combat, you should keep an eye on your hero's health bar regularly, especially if you are fighting stronger opponents or mini-bosses/full-fledged bosses. Successful enemy attacks can deprive your character of life points, also if you use machines (mechs, scooters, etc.).

Heal your character with a variety of medications. The more serious the damage you have to regenerate, the stronger the medicine you should choose from your inventory. It is worth mentioning that you can add your healing items to the drop-down menu of consumables for easy use. On the other hand, do not move away from the battlefield, because this will mean that the health points of the enemies you fought will renew, and you will have to start the fight from scratch. You can find more tips and information about hp recovery on the Healing - how to recover health? page.

Avoid depleting the ki energy bar completely

In Biomutant , ki energy has several important uses - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

In Biomutant , ki energy has several important uses. The most general being that it replaces the traditional mana and stamina bars you may know from other games. You can deplete it by, among other things, activating special powers, dodging, using double jumps or initiating special attacks.

You should avoid situations where your ki is completely exhausted, because this can prevent you from performing some very important actions, such as avoiding a strong attack from your opponent. Wait a while for the ki energy to regenerate itself or use consumables to regenerate it in case of emergency. We have covered this topic in more detail on the Ki Energy - how to regenerate it?

Collect as much loot as possible

You can find plenty of loot in Biomutant , including weapons, gear, parts, crafting ingredients, consumables, or just plain treasures - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

You can find plenty of loot in Biomutant , including weapons, gear, parts, crafting ingredients, consumables, or just plain treasures. Try to collect as many of them as possible, and then choose the best ones based on their stats and rarity. Even if an item is of no use to you at the moment, you can put it aside for later (there is no inventory limit for heavier items) or sell it to one of the merchants. This way you get cash to buy more interesting things.

The game helps you find valuable loot by informing you of treasures to find in the locations you visit - a list of secrets to get may appear on the screen. They are worth investigating. You can find more information about this on the page How to complete Locations in 100%?

Use crafting to upgrade equipment or create new items

In Biomutant, crafting is very complex - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

In Biomutant, crafting is very complex. It involves both making entirely new items and upgrading your existing equipment by installing new components. In both cases you can count on great freedom in the choice of parts and modifications in order to create an item in accordance with your expectations (e.g. able to deal additional fire damage).

In order to produce or upgrade equipment, you will need various crafting components, which can be found with loot in the game, bought from merchants or obtained by dismantling unnecessary items. Do not waste your ingredients on upgrading weak weapons or armor. Focus on crafting the best items possible for the character's current experience level. For more tips and information check out the Crafting section of our guide as well as the Unwanted loot - how to get rid of it? (Information on rules for dismantling items).

At the beginning, stay away from contaminated areas

While exploring the vast open world of Biomutant , you must be aware that some areas to be explored are contaminated and this is symbolized by a warning in the top right corner of the screen, accompanied by a danger percentage - you must leave the dangerous area before it reaches its maximum value a - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

While exploring the vast open world of Biomutant , you must be aware that some areas to be explored are contaminated and this is symbolized by a warning in the top right corner of the screen, accompanied by a danger percentage - you must leave the dangerous area before it reaches its maximum value and the main character dies.

Once you've advanced sufficiently in the campaign, there will be ways to make traversing contaminated areas easier - you'll be able to use mechs and special protective suits (note - the suit must always match the type of threat). Only then should you decide to thoroughly explore all these places in order to collect valuable loot. For more information, check out the Suits - how to get one? and Mekton Mech - how to unlock it? in our guide.

You don't have to ally with one tribe for the whole game

At a fairly early stage in the game, you will be introduced to the topic of taking part in tribal wars for the first time - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

At a fairly early stage in the game, you will be introduced to the topic of taking part in tribal wars for the first time. You will be able to ally with a tribe of your choice and attack outposts and forts belonging to other tribes. Not only are there numerous quests associated with this, but also rewards with special emphasis on the tribes' unique weapons and armor.

The initial choice of tribe (Jagni or Myriad) is fortunately not the final choice. If you wish, the game will allow you to change your decision and thus change your affiliation. You don't have to remain allied with the same tribe until the very end of the game. With the change, you can also unlock a different campaign ending. We discuss this topic in more detail in the Tribes chapter .

Talk to characters with exclamation point icons above their heads

In Biomutant , you have to reckon with the fact that there are relatively few things marked on the world map - these are mainly the names of the locations - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

In Biomutant , you have to reckon with the fact that there are relatively few things marked on the world map - these are mainly the names of the locations. Thus you always have to look for NPCs, who will assign you with a side quests, on your own.

A side quest can be started by a character with an exclamation mark above his head (example in the picture). After talking to such an NPC, you can get detailed information about the quest and only then will it appear in the journal. Fortunately, this doesn't apply to all tasks, but it's still worth looking around for NPCs to talk to. You will meet them mainly in villages and locations under the control of the friendly tribe. A list of all side quests can be found in our walkthrough of the game.

Save your game before trying to solve a puzzle

In Biomutant , you can save your progress freely and you don't have to rely solely on autosaves made by the game at important moments throughout the campaign - Biomutant: Beginners guide - Basics - Biomutant Guide

In Biomutant , you can save your progress freely and you don't have to rely solely on autosaves made by the game at important moments throughout the campaign. We especially recommend saving the game before trying to solve any puzzle. The reason for this is that in each puzzle you have a limited number of moves to complete it (this is affected by the Intellect attribute) and if you fail, you will be electrocuted. Saving the game may protect you against such a situation.

Saving your progress can also be useful in other situations, such as before meetings where there are important choices tied to auras, or where persuasion attempts are possible. The topic of saving the game is described in more detail on the Saving game - how? You can learn more about puzzles from the page Puzzle difficulty - how to lower it?
