Dauntless Guide – A beginner’s Dauntless Guide to hunting Behemoths and staying alive
Dauntless is a game all about protecting your little village from gigantic beasts called Behemoths. It’s free-to-play, co-op, and cross-platform, so it’s a great game to jump into with friends no matter where they are. It’s also a surprisingly complex game and one that doesn’t always hold your hand. That’s why you might want to have a read of a Dauntless guide, it’ll make sure you’re as well informed as possible. Given that you’re already here, continue on to have a read of our Dauntless guide.
The first thing you need to know is how to play Dauntless, what do you actually need to do. Well, the aim of the game is to take down Behemoths, and you do this by hitting them with your weapon, breaking their parts, and eventually slaying them. This allows you to gain more materials from them, and you can then use those materials to upgrade your weapons, armour, and other items. There are a few things that can really help you stay alive though, so it’s worth learning them.
Dauntless Tips and Tricks
Dodging is a classic move in nearly any action game these days. It gets you out of the way of big attacks, helps you move faster when you need it, and it looks cool. More importantly, it also grants you some brief invincibility frames. These make you completely immune to damage for a short time, which allows you to be a bit more aggressive with your dodge. It’s always worth dodging towards your foe, not away from them. That way you can always stay on the offensive.
Healing rifts are strange mystical cracks in the earth. They appear in a few different places, but they are nearly always in the last area where you fight a Behemoth. If you go up to one of them, you’ll have some health restored. While this does have a limited number of uses, the blue light gets weaker with each use, and you can see roughly how many uses is left based on that.
Daily quests are probably the best way to get your hands on more rewards. There are two each day as well as a weekly challenge. Completing these will help you level up and get more loot, and everyone loves loot. They’re also a good reason to focus on something a bit different each day.
Make sure you try out each weapon. It’s worth spending the first few missions just messing about with the different weapon types. You’re sure to find one that suits you better than the others, and it also allows you to understand a bit more about each one. It’s a great way to find your style, and as there are no Dauntless classes, it’s the closest thing to it.
Finally, always remember to restock your items. If you forget to do this before heading out on a hunt then you might find yourself without your favourite tools. This can be fatal, especially in the later missions. It’s always better to have something and not need it than to need something and not have it. That’s it for this little Dauntless guide, but make sure you check out everything else we have on the game.
