Starting a game isn't always easy. The goal of the following tips is to help you get a better start and to learn more about the Atlas system.
- Always check an enemy's weak points - The game provides you information about a new enemy whenever you encounter one. The most important part is its weaknesses to various weapon types. Pay extra attention to this information.
- Explore every location carefully - The planets have multiple locations that are divided into a few types. Being part of a certain group means that you will find items from the same category. The short note on the map informs you what you can find in a given location - simply move your cursor over it.
- Use environment objects during combat - Locations can feature exploding containers. Shoot them to cause either a frost or heat explosion. Besides regular damage, your enemy will also receive other negative effects (they need to stand on the stain created by the explosion).
- Use combinations of attacks - A good way of increasing your firepower is to use the right combinations. Thermal shock works great at the beginning of the game. An overheated or frozen enemy attacked with the opposite element will receive a lot of damage. This is especially useful when you are fighting with the Cyclops.
- Be on good terms with the Observatories - Observatories are facilities located on every planet. Their goal is to scan the nearby terrains. Start cooperating with them and you will be able to use their data to reveal all hidden parts of the map that are within the Observatory's radius.
- Don't try to explore the entire map in one go - The game adds all the available locations on your map upon your first landing on a given planet. However, not all of them are suited for low-level characters. Move your cursor over a location that interests you to learn its recommended level.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas Video Game
- genre: Action
- developer: Ubisoft
- publisher: Ubisoft
- platform: PS4, XONE, Switch
The game takes place in the distant Atlas planetary system, which is filled with alien worlds. This part of the galaxy is on the brink of destruction due to the invasion of the machines known as the Forgotten Legion. Our job is to stop the machines and defeat their leader, Grax.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas for SWITCH, XONE and PS4 is an action game where we control our own, self-made space ship. We use it to fight not only in space, but also in the high atmosphere of many planets.
The gameís world is open and dynamic and changes under the influence of both the player and the Forgotten Legionís (A.I.) decisions. If we do not pay enough attention to whatís going on, the machines will quickly take over the entire system.
What makes Starlink: Battle for Atlas a unique game is the fact that it is integrated with physical spaceship models that are sold separately. Here, the system is a bit more complicated than in other similar productions. Spaceship models are modular, which allows us to manually change their parts and pilots. These changes are instantly realized in the virtual world so the game combines the virtual and actual realities.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas offers many various missions during which we have complete tactical freedom. It encourages us to experiment with modelsí configurations in order to create spaceships suitable for all kinds of tasks.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas for SWITCH, XONE and PS4 uses Snowdrop game engine (the same as The Division), making its visuals really attractive and easy on the eyes.
