Number 1 just shows how much of a noob you are. It’s obvious you should hit the hit box also you dismissed the chaser when In reality ITS EXTREMELY USEFUL FOR HITTING DIFFICULT HITBOXES also these tips are common sense.
Spoiler warning for a boss in world 2! This is advice
For the Dragon in world 2 at the end do not shoot at all because his fireballs will spread out in all four directions, inevitably hitting you. Equip the chaser shot and fire when the dragon is using his flamethrower, one of the dragon heads will do this. Also try to get to the end with maximum hearts since the ending for me was annoying at first.This might help or not. It worked for me
Another thing I found extremely helpful for Ribby and Croaks (because it took me a week to beat them.) when the fan thing is blowing in your face stay facing the fan and just run forward and when you need to back up let the fan push you backwards and for the spinning ball things they always have a pattern. Watch the first ball. It will either hit close to the frog on the left first or not. From that point on it will always alternate!!! Hope this was helpful!!!!!
BasilTulip 17043 I mean even my friends couldn’t believe It took you a week to take out the third boss. That one attack isn’t that hard. For me, maximum is a day for a boss. Your just really, really, bad
lobber for the final phase, shoot straight up, it will fall on her
spreadshot is amazing on the second phase and can do tons of damage while she is stuck doing a second phase attack during the third phase. I've actually beaten her right as the third phase started before
"Always be firing." In the boss levels, yes. But, certain Run 'N Guns have sections that where it's better to not shot the enemies. Case in point: Isle II's Funfair Fever. If you shoot the clown balloons, they explode, giving you many smaller things to dodge.
Fun fact: wen playing two player, if player two does and player one can’t save him, player two can come back if player two presses A. And if player one were to perish, wait till the body leaves the screen, then player one press STARt to come back. But for whatever reason it only works once for player 1.
I know a way to make the Cagney carnation fight super easy, when she is about to release the chasing seeds from her leaves, quickly jump into the middle of the leaves and get hit by the seeds, this way Cagney carnation will freeze giving you a chance to shoot her to death!
6:57 that is true, but in run and gun levels or bosses like Psy-carrot from the root pack, Beppi the clown in his second and third stage and Muffsky Chernikov from baroness von bon bon's fight, it can be extremely helpful, considering they all have either really small or really oddly placed hit boxes that the chaser bullet can easily hit.
Tip: when you go to goopys tree when you get in to the fight do this on fase sorry for spelling 1&2 at the beginning of the fight when it says ready duck and you won't get hit by him if you have smoke dash use it on the 3 fase of goopy
Oh man it's just so easy to get completely taken over by the fact that the game is so challenging. I'm always up for a challenge in video games but cuphead is a different story! It took 70h+ but I managed to get all S-Rank and P-Rank completion (200%). I recorded it all as well, with commentary, I've got a relatively small gaming channel and would love some support/feedback for some, or any videos :)
My strategy: Remapping my controller so I don't cramp my right hand. My config: RT for the shot, RB for the dash, LT for the fixed shot, LB for the special attack, and I leave the A button for the jump.
For all my lady gamers/guy gamers with longer hair:
- Open custom controls menu
- Change shoot button to RT
- Get a scrungie/hair tie
- Wrap scrungie/hair tie around RT, now you have an extra finger to work with! If you do it right it won't interfere with your controls, lol.
Also, I can't stress enough the importance of customizing your controls in general. If you die more than twice in a row during a run-n-gun stage, it's probably because you're wasting time/attention on the neutral control scheme. When you're in the overworld try customizing and then test your new controls out on the tutorial "stages" or the run-n-gun sections
4:53 I have trouble on the snake and bull attack on the slot machine. Ribby and Croak’s 2nd stage is easy with long range weapons. Also, I always mess up with smoke bomb because I always land on an enemy.
Another quick tip (which I took a long time to learn somehow), is that you should start parrying right before you get to the object you can parry. This way, you don't need exact timing to parry it, and it's just a bit easier.
You underestimated the chaser. Against later bosses (especially Rumor Honeybottoms), it comes in extremely useful as you focus on dodging the attacks and platforming. While the boss is in a tough position to hit, chaser is great.
It would nice if the tutorial told you to to hit the link objects. I’m struggling with the slot machine and had no idea I was suppose to hit the hand till I died several times. Any other enemy seems to be you can hit them then they throw that in there to screw you up.
i bought the game 3 days ago and i beat the root pack, loopy de grande i also beat the frist run n gun level but i got stuck at the ribby and croaks fight but i got really REALLY close thanks to these tips thank's a lot for the tricks and i hope you make another video with more tips
These tips are okay for the first world, but the tip to never stop firing? Usually sound, but it will get you murdered in some levels during isle 2. Try it against Grim Matchstick, he'll kill you in no time.
Another tip: When you're on the part when you're facing the bull on "Threatnin' Zeppelin" you have to move to the bottom of the screen when it attacks you so it won't attack you. It makes that phase easier.
