Archero is a shooter game where the player equips their trusty bow and arrow and plays through levels, defeating tougher and tougher enemies until they complete the chapter. Here is everything you need to know to breeze through the game!
Strategies to keep alive in the levels
Archero can get pretty hectic at times. And due to only being able to shoot whilst stationary, it can seem like a suicide mission! In times of panic, try to forget about killing the enemy, and just focus instead on the projectiles. If you zone your focus on the flying objects, you may find yourself being able to get through the thick of it. You may get hit a little bit, but that’s okay, the game is not stingy when it comes to healing!
Whilst you are navigating the madness, I’m your peripheral vision attempt to find a spot of empty land and try to make your way there. As soon as there are no incoming projectiles, then you can focus on shooting the enemy. You may think it obvious to target the large monsters first, or the ones constantly shooting at you. I would advise you to take down any melee enemies first. They will catch up with you and they will overrun you. Your only hope when dealing with multiplying and melee enemies is to face them head-on.
Once your level is free of those crazy enemies, you can focus on taking out the ranged creatures. Naturally, you cannot control what your character targets, so sometimes you will just have to deal with your character fighting enemies you don’t want to target – but this is okay. Do not stress over it! That will only impair your judgment and get you killed. Just focus on moving out of the way, and let your character deal with the shooting!
How to upgrade effectively
Every time you level up in the game, you will have a choice of three different random upgrades. These will either increase the number of arrows you shoot in different directions, enhance your attributes such as health and attack speed, give your arrows a buff, such as a freeze or fire abilities, or enhance your character in other incredible ways.
In each run, you can only have a max of ten upgrades, so choose them wisely! Try to pick upgrades that complement each other, such as ricochet and piercing shots, to really maximize your damage and ability without needing extra upgrades!
I would generally advise you to resist claiming any upgrades that increase your attributes, such as attack speed, health, or power, as any other upgrade will add up to be much more powerful against the enemy, and in the long run potentially save your life numerous times. Besides, an angel will visit you every now and then and will offer you slight increases in your attributes, so you can rely on them instead.
Concentrating instead on upgrades that increase your arrow count and give your arrows buffs is the best way to advance, as you will find yourself clearing levels in no time! With numerous arrows bouncing off the walls, setting every enemy on fire already is insane, let alone all the other buffs you can get!
I would also recommend you get the bloodthirsty upgrade as soon as it pops up, as gaining health from each beaten enemy will help you live long enough to reach the ends of your chapters, and teach further than previously possible. It is definitely one of the best upgrades the game has to offer, so take it when you come across it! As long as follow this advice about upgrading, you will have no problem in the field. Good luck!
