Slow Mode

If you are a group admin on Telegram, Slow Mode is what you need to stop unnecessary spam and make the conversation more orderly. After you turn on the slow mode and choose the time interval, group members will have a restriction to send one message in the defined interval. Say, for instance, if you choose the time interval to be 15 seconds, after sending one message, the group member will have to wait 15 seconds to send another message. It will definitely raise the value of each member and individual messages. You can turn on Slow Mode by tapping on the Group name -> Edit (pen icon) -> Permissions -> Slow Mode.

Know When to Walk Away

Cuphead is a brutal game at times, so consider stepping away to take clear your mind can do wonders. Much of your time will be spent constantly dying or reloading an encounter which can be incredibly frustrating. Walking away and returning with a clear head will allow you to evaluate and tackle whatever boss has you beaten. If you are really having trouble consider trying a different boss or level to sharpen your skills. Sometimes not having the right weapon or charm can make an encounter far more difficult than it’s supposed to be.

The Invisible Dash Is Fantastic

Pre-Order now on Xbox One and Windows 10! cupheadgame.com2017-06-11T22:10:06.000Z There are six different charms in Cuphead, but our personal favorite is one that makes you immune when you dash. The only negative is you cannot see where exactly you’re going, however, after some time you can actually predict your trajectory. Since you can negate all damage and pass through enemies, it’s possible to run circles around your foes.  This allows players to easily navigate across the stage with virtually no repercussions. However, if you want a different Charm the “Coffee” ability is actually quite useful and is a worthy replacement.

Play on Regular

Despite being a rather difficult game, we recommend not playing any of the bosses on Simple. While the fight will be far easier, you actually won’t earn any souls and thus cannot progress to the final area. Plus, playing on Simple changes the bosses attack patterns and moves, so you cannot even learn them for when you switch to the Regular difficulty. Plus. playing on the normal setting will allow you to improve and understand the timing and mechanics better.

Learn to Switch Weapons

It’s more than possible to beat every boss in Cuphead with just your basic weapon, but one shouldn’t ignore the six types of shots available. Despite Spread being the best out of the additional five offered, players should still consider purchasing the other variants. Some sections are far easier with specific weapons like the tracking bullets, which allow you to focus on your footwork. If you are finding yourself struggling with a particular area, consider changing weapons and see how you do.

Talk to NPCs

For more information, please visit xbox.com/E32015-06-15T17:26:59.000Z While you’re out exploring the world of Cuphead make sure to stop and speak with every NPC you come across. Some will simply offer you tips, while others will give you a gold coin for performing specific actions. There are a fair amount of citizens scattered about Cuphead, so try to speak with them all at one point or another. Keep in mind, some NPCs will have their dialogue change after you either complete a certain stage, boss, or isle. Make sure to always come back and speak with them to ensure that you don’t lose out on extra rewards.

Don’t Purchase an Extra Heart

In Cuphead, players will only be able to take three hits before succumbing to the great beyond. Since you can burn through these hearts quickly it might be tempting to purchase an additional one at the shop. However, the catch is your damage will be reduced, which means your boss fights will drag out even more. There’s really no reason to purchase an additional heart unless you are really struggling with a specific fight. Remember, adding a fourth and even fifth heart to your pool takes away from any other special abilities you can have like an invisible dash or special parry attack.

Learn to Exploit the Stage

Cuphead’s bosses are rather challenging, however, you can easily overcome some sections by exploiting their inability to hit certain areas. Bosses like the Wally Warbles  cannot actually land a hit on you if you chill in the corners after they fire their eggs. The geography of a stage is just as important as the boss itself, so always analyze your terrain during a fight. Sometimes I like to spend a round or two just seeing the limitations of a bosses projectiles so I know how to dodge them in an actual fight. You have unlimited lives in Cuphead, so there’s no reason not to make use of them.

Purchase the Spread Shot First

There are six additional variants on Cuphead’s weapon that you can unlock, each of which will drastically change how you play or approach fights. While all of them are good we highly recommend picking up the Spread potion first. Acting as Cuphead’s version of a shotgun, this projectile fires in a fan shape and has a rather short range. However, it more than makes up for this thanks to the incredible damage output it has. There are a lot of bosses that you can get close to and use Spread on, so pick this up as soon as you can.

Learn to Parry

Parrying is one of the few mechanics in Cuphead that you really will need to master if you want to beat the game. This ability allows players to counter a specific attack, enemy, or projectile to take no damage and gain a bit of extra height. To actually parry, press jump and then hit A right before a pink colored foe or attack hits you. Doing so will cause Cuphead to “Parry Slap” and get away without taking any damage or losing a heart. You will need to master this move as the World 3 bosses all make strong use of the Parry mechanic, so make sure to work on this technique early on.
