Biomutant can put you in the hairy paws of a tiny rodent-like creature, but make no mistake, the scope and scale of its world is huge, and with so many places to go and things to do. even at the relative start of the game it can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why we’ve decided to run this little video highlighting some of the things we strongly suggest you do first.
Craft your build (but don’t worry about it)
Biomutant’s character creator is… a lot. It is up to you to choose a breed, to define your genetic structure, your resistance, your fur style, your fur color and your class. It can be a bit overwhelming, but it really boils down to one main thing: do you want to specialize in melee, ranged, magic, or some sort of combo of the three. If you go with a melee / tank build, you’ll obviously want to invest in the attributes of vitality and strength, and likely choose a saboteur or sentry as your class.
If you’re looking for a heavier vibe from a distance, you’ll want to develop your agility and choose the Dead Eye or Commando class. And if you want to go for a mage build, of course you will want to inject a large amount of points into the intellect and choose the Psi-Freak as your class. But it’s also important to note that whatever is set at the start of the game is really just a way to get you started on the right foot towards your preferred playstyle, it’s not set in stone. Biomutant is all about evolution, and your build can evolve as the game evolves into whatever you want it to be.
Do the main quest (at least for a little while)
It takes about an hour to complete the tutorial section of Biomutant, but once the training wheels are off and you are free to explore the world as you see fit, there is certainly a temptation to go in and out. any direction to do whatever you want. And hey, if that’s your thing, don’t let us stop you. But just be aware that by following the main quest you’ll get a number of important buffs that you’ll definitely want to have early on, as well as access to various NPCs who can send you on exceptionally rewarding side quests – you can even unlock your own mech pretty quickly!
Additionally, the difficulty curve is designed to be much easier when following the main path than if you just decide to walk alone, so it may be a good idea to stay at least close to the main path, if you are not. not follow it 100%.
Once you feel comfortable enough with your skills and gear to think outside the box, one of the first things you should think about doing is getting the organic wetsuit. Head to any green gas cloud to get the Biosuit Quest, then go find it. While there are a bunch of suits you can get to protect yourself from environmental hazards, the Organic suit is the one you’ll want to get first, because once you get it you can …
Explore Bio Nucleus 6D to cultivate biopoints
.. explore Bio Nucleus 6D, located northeast of Murkadorpus outpost. Not only is this a great place to acquire decent gear early on, but it’s also home to a special kind of enemy that will always drop biopoints, which you can use to unlock new mutations and perks or increase your skills. resistors so you can explore other dangerous areas without even needing the corresponding environmental suits. Plus, some of these mutations look really cool.
Go hunting in Munster
As mentioned earlier, one of the reasons to start the main quest is because it sends you out early enough to meet important NPCs. One of those NPCs is Moog Munster, which is particularly noteworthy as it sends you to Munster Hunts, which rewards you with a key to a vault for the region. These chests house extraordinarily powerful loot and will be a major source of high level weapons. You can also bring the monster’s droppings back to Moog Munsterhonter, which will make him a very happy Munster hunter, so hey, it’s not like you’re killing living creatures just for your own profit.
Find other environmental protection suits
We recommend that you find the biological suit first so that you can cultivate biopoints, but the other environmental suits will also be of great help to you as you explore the world of Biomutant, which is limited by environmental risks. Fortunately, as soon as you run into danger, you gain a quest that sends you in the direction you need to go to collect this suit. You’ll probably have to fight a hard fight to activate the satellite which will direct you to the suit, but it’s worth it.
Get the Klonkfist and Klawbar upgrades
The Klonkfist and the Klawbar are two items that allow you to open secret areas, but to gain access to the more valuable secret areas you will need to upgrade them. Fortunately, like the combinations, as soon as you come across an area that you cannot access, you will earn the quest which allows you to improve them. Do this early on so that you never end up with that empty, hollow feeling of having to leave a secret because you don’t have the tool to open it yet.
Learn to do Super Wung Fu
Activating Super Wung Fu is a very important part of Biomutant combat, and it’s not the most intuitive thing in the world, so make sure you understand what you need to do about it. To do this, you need to perform three unique moves that each add a charge to your Super Wung Fu meter. Most of these moves will need to be purchased using upgrade points and are specific to each weapon type. However, some of them (like the Tribe Weapons) come with all of their moves unlocked.
So, for example, if I use a one-handed weapon, I could use the drunken ant technique for a charge, then the crane dance on my weapon for the second charge, then either the cat’s cyclone on the one-handed blade, or I should switch to another weapon and use its special Super Wung Fu fill attack, like the unspeakable hand technique with unarmed combat. Once you have obtained three charges, pressing L1 and R1 simultaneously will allow you to enter the Super Wung Fu state.
Capture outposts and upgrade your equipment
Capturing Outposts is one of the main questing activities in Biomutant, so it’s something you’ll end up doing no matter what, but consider eliminating a few early on, as this will will give you quick access to an upgrade bench, which you can use to spend all of the different materials you’ve collected and upgrade your gear. Take note to periodically review outposts to upgrade your current suite of weapons and gear to ensure you always stay ahead of the difficulty curve.
Again, these are just our suggestions for things to do first, but the important thing to know about Biomutant is that you should explore! It’s a huge world to play in with things to discover pretty much every turn.
