If you are a beginner and you're just starting your adventure with Darksiders 3, you should choose one of the lower difficulty levels. You'll still have a lot of fun in the game, but the battles won't be tedious enough to discourage you.
In Darksiders 3, all auxiliary weapons can be used together with the main weapon. For example, you can use the main weapon to pull an opponent, and immediately switch to an auxiliary weapon in combination without losing momentum.
Deposit souls before an important fight
Remember that when you die in Darksiders 3, all souls you had collected will be dropped. In such a situation you have to come back for them, but you may not retrieve the same number of them.
Upgrade your weapons and their augments
Darksiders 3 offers the player the opportunity to strengthen weapons and benefit from special upgrades. Try to improve your weapons regularly to make sure you have the best possible weapon.
Distribute attribute points
You certainly want your character to be as strong as possible, so try to distribute attribute points regularly. This will increase your Hero's combat capabilities and chances of survival.
Before you start solving the puzzles in Darksiders 3, first look around the location and try to find some scheme, a pattern. Usually these are some objects to be placed in the right place or crystals to be hit in a short period of time. When breaking through barricaded passages, it is usually enough to use the essence of the flame or beetles.
Hit and run
The best way to fight your opponent is to rely on fast counter-attacks. Offer a few blows, withdraw and wait for the opponent to move, and then counter.
Smash everything you can
Try to break all boxes, sarcophagi, statues, urns, rubbish bins and similar items as you pass through different locations, sometimes you can find something valuable in them.
Special Attack is the last resort
During a special, your character is completely immune to attacks. You can use this in combat if you are sure you can't avoid being injured.
Sometimes it is better to let go
Some side fights cannot be won at a lower level so sometimes you will have to let go and return to the fight when your Hero is stronger.
Keep your eyes open
When you get stuck and don't know what to do next, look around the location. Sometimes the most obvious things are obscured. Look for cracks in walls, floors and ceilings.
Use the compass
After overcoming Envy you will receive a compass that shows you the way to the next Boss. It's worth using when you don't know where to go next.
In order to move quickly between locations, it is advisable to use Serpent Holes. To move to another place go to Vulgrim and select the appropriate option, and then select the point to which you want to go. Teleportation is free.
