Although Arcadegeddon is a fast past looter-shooter-type game, one of the mistakes new players make is that they do not slow down a little bit and take their time. Move as quickly as you can through areas while killing enemies, but take the time to inspect your surroundings and make sure that there is not anything that you have missed. Knowing your surroundings will help you progress easier, and you might even find loot that you missed at an earlier stage.
Being a game that drops a good amount of loot, you might just find your favorite weapon early on, which is a great thing. This can hinder you. However, this can limit your damage and progression if you stick to just one weapon. Make sure that you test out all the weapons that the game has to offer to find out which weapon works in different situations. This will help you progress through the game a lot easier while learning the ropes. Arcadegeddon spawns in enemies very often, so you should not have a lack of test subjects for the weapons that you find lying around.
Before you head out on a run, make sure to accept a quest from one of the NPCs located in your hub area. This will help you get the best of each run and make sure that you are on the right track to becoming the best out there. There are multiple quest givers in your hub, and each of them have their own quest line. Switching quest lines will not erase how far you have gone in another one, so feel free to switch it up as your need. Each quest will need to be completed in one run, so make sure that you know which quest you have and focus on completing it in your next run.
The structure of the game is based around runs. What this means is that when you start a run, you will start with almost nothing and collect ammo and weapons on the way. This also works in reverse. What you collect in the run will most likely not help you outside of the run, barring collectibles such as cosmetics. So make sure that you are using what you have and utilizing the ammo you have collected, as it will not come with you once you have completed the run.
One of the best tips out there is to make sure that you have ammo for later on, so early in your run, when there are less enemies and they do less damage, pull out your bat. Early on in your run, running around with your bat and beating your opponents will help you save on a ton of ammo and likely will not have a problem with ammo later on in your run. Unfortunately, later on in your run, enemies do more damage and can be harder to kill with the bat. That is why it is recommended to do it early on to save up those ammo clips.
Throughout your run, you will find hacks from crates and chests. Make sure that you keep an eye on which you have collected in your run, as the hacks can help you out a ton if you are using the best weapon that works with those hacks. Make sure that the weapon that you are using works well with your hacks. If you do this, you will notice that your runs become a lot easier, and it will be a ton better for killing those pesky enemies that are hunting you down.
When you start out on a run, you will be given two weapons that you can use and have a third slot open. One of the best configurations to use with regards to weapons is having two weapons that you can find ammo for and in your third slot, find a special weapon. Special weapons are weapons that you cannot pick up ammo for. They have a finite amount of ammo for each run. The reason behind having this weapon is that if you ever find yourself in a bind, they are very handy at helping you out of that spot. They mostly do more damage or more splash damage than the regular weapons.
