Dead Cells Skills Guide

Skills are additional features that you can get to enhance the combat. They are not the main source for your damage but they work out very well as a backup. This Dead Cells Skills Guide will guide you through acquiring them. Our Dead Cells Skills Guide will tell you about all of the skills that are a part of Dead Cells and where can each of them be found.

Dead Cells Skills

In this Skills Guide, we will tell you about all of the skills in the game one by one. We will tell you what is it that the skill is used for and where can you find the blueprint for the skill. The blueprint will be used to unlock the skill before it can be used. You can swap skills using the interact menu and improve them by increasing your tactics stat.

Let us go ahead and take a look at all of the skills. Some of them are quite useful while others may not have as big of an impact on your game as you might expect.

However, it is best to find all of them and give them a try to see how they differ from one another and whether or not they can be useful for your playstyle.
