    New game + will take care of everything. Your guns can level up to 10. Every collectible you get again gives you tons of bolts for spending. RareAtheneum comes back so u can collect more.

    It’s fun so far but it’s buggy. I started it yesterday and had to look up a play through to figure out why I was stuck, only to find out it was a bug. Then I quit for the day soon after due to another bug which I can’t remember at the moment.

    BIG TIP!! put your top 4 support weapons on D-pad for quick access then choose your 2 favorite weapons from the weapon wheel. whatever your 2 most recent weapons were from the rotational wheel will switch back and forth when you quick-press triangle. that way you never have to bring up the rotational weapon wheel up again or very rarely.

    This and Astrobot are the only true next Gen games. And this game is just... Mind-blowing. No loads. None. It's incredible.

    You can actually farm raritanium on some of the arena battles as raritanium is a reward for some of the arena battles and the reward amount of raritanium never changes no matter how many times you play.

  8. Genesis Russel

    Raritanium is limited... Um just go to the Arena and the Gold Boss fight Ya get 21 per fight with the armor bonus to raritanium Note:you can farm the bronze or silver but ya wont get as much

    These "essential" tips seem to start off with END-OF-GAME INFO! I guess I thought essential tips would be things I wouldn't have already learned after a playthrough, but instead this video is LOADED with spoilers & info that doesn't mean anything for people who haven't already played through. I appreciate the effort, but I don't get it, honestly.

  11. Langz Noir

    Am I crazy or is the raritanium tip incorrect? Most nodes of it respawn and there are mobs that drop it. I don't htink it's a finite resource.

  12. Justin Burbank

    Justin BurbankPred mesecem

    Yeah it’s false. The boss in level 2 of the bronze cup drops 3-4 each time you replay it

    Why do people skip puzzles when they are part of the game...? They are very simple...

  14. Dr Blitz

    Dr BlitzPred 27 dnevi

    i skipped the the cinematic scenes, puzzles and glitch virus fights when i played the 2nd and 3rd time around in challenge mode, well because i already did it once and they weren't that fun

  15. DarkAnomaly

    DarkAnomalyPred mesecem

    I don't skip them personally but I can understand those who are of the impatient type just wanting to get back into the action not wanting to do them. Also on subsequent playthroughs having the option to skip them is handy too.

  16. Andrew Rose

    Andrew RosePred mesecem

    There should be no choice to skip the puzzle. It’s a game. Figure it the fuck out or you don’t get to move on....it’s like they put participation trophies in video game mode. STOP IT

    Raretanium is NOT limited per playthrough. You can get it at the arena

    --Pred mesecem

    @Jonathan Harlick they'll bring you back to the arena right when it's unlocked. So when the story brings you back, take a look

  19. Jonathan Harlick

    Jonathan HarlickPred mesecem

    Honestly I haven't had the chance to get to Gold yet and I'm not even sure if I've unlocked silver yet either because I haven't checked. I have loads of raretanium to upgrade my weapons fully as an when I unlock them and level them up.

    @Jonathan Harlick even replaying the final gold challenge gets you 6 every time and only takes a few min

  21. Jonathan Harlick

    Jonathan HarlickPred mesecem

    Exactly as soon as you get the Arena if you do the last Bronze challenge you get 2 for completing it. You also get at least 3 for defeating Sue. The most I've gotten for defeating Sue is 21 raretanium so I ended up with 23 for about a minutes worth of time.

    they shouldnt have given a skip option for any segments that arent optional challenges, thats just lazy pathetic crap and anyone who does that is pathetic. and this comeing from a disabled guy

  40. Lyceaos Greymoon

    Lyceaos GreymoonPred mesecem

    @LAZYMANE see, to me it is cause pathetic and lazy. But I grew up in the 80's/90's. My firs console was the NES and I've been gaming since. So giving skips for segments is nothing but pathetic to me unless we are talking a segment that would actively be hard for the disabled, this doesn't qualify, given if you can't do this due to disabilities, how are you playing the rest of the game?

    Any time you use a weapon other then your omni wrench it gains xp for a kill. When using the omni wrench by itself your taking away xp from your weapons.
