Extinction Beginners Guide

Remember that time is really important. You need to focus on the mission and not get distracted by things that are irrelevant.

Protecting the Watchtowers will be by far the most important thing that you can do followed by the Ravenii closest to the buildings. If you have to protect civilians, then simply take out the enemies threatening them.

When you see the Randomly Generated Missions, you have to be even more cautious of what you do. The game is incredibly punishing and you will need to master the dodge maneuver in order to win. You need to avoid the enemy attacks far more often than you need to attack.

Ravenii will be even more dangerous and even a single hit can be deadly from them. For that reason, you need to master the dodge maneuver before you do anything else.

Tips and Tricks

The first thing that you need to do is to ensure that you are upgrading your abilities as soon as you can. There is a skill tree that can be used to upgrade a lot of different things so remember to spend all that you can to improve your powers.

This can be done by completing objectives, side missions, and rescuing civilians among other things. At the start, try to upgrade your health and expand your combos before focusing on other stuff.

Another good idea is to have your Rune Strike at the halfway mark before you take on the Ravenii. Rune Strike is pretty much the only ability that can defeat the Ravenii and you need to fill up its gauge before you do anything to the Ravenii.

Defeat Jackals and dissect Ravenii to fill your meter up. Try to have the meter halfway before the fight and then attack it at the limbs to gain some more. After that, you will be able to take out the Ravenii.

While we are on the subject of Ravenii, remember to focus on the bigger ones first before you tackle the smaller ones. The bigger ones are by far the most dangerous ones and you need to take out their armor before you can kill them.

The ‘Rune Strike’ will defeat them if you manage to land it on the neck of Ravenii. Their limbs will regenerate if left alone for a long time to try to take them out quickly.

Rescuing the civilians will grant you a host of different benefits. Charge up the portal to send them to safety. This will boost your Rune Strike Meter and you will be able to unlock a skill using Skill Points that can increase the charge time of the portal. This will allow you to rescue more civilians and hence create a snowball effect.

Lastly, it is important to remember when it is time to retreat. It does not matter if you are doing well in one place while the other place has a ton of civilians dying.

Remember to have a watchful eye over the entire map and if you feel like you are fighting a losing battle, then fall back as soon as you can. Learn to prioritize to be successful and avoid tunnel vision.
