If you’re into horror games, then it’s likely that you’ve already heard the horror game called Outlast 2. We’ve already played and finished it and we’re confident enough to say that it’s scarier than Resident Evil 7 on PS4 that was released earlier. Outlast 2 is packed with relentless scares (even during the Outlast 2 trailer and demo), creepy monsters, controversial scenes about faith and nightmare-inducing horror experience. Don’t get us wrong, it’s not perfect. It left us with so many questions about the ending and we may talk about that with the next article, but if you’re planning to play it, here are 5 tips and tricks that will help you finish the horror game, Outlast 2.
Save your Batteries!
Throughout the whole game, you’ll play as Blake. He’s a fearful journalist who’s only good at one thing: to record videos. And as the law of electricity and gadgets states, you need a battery to run your video camera. Always be on the look out on how much you use your camera’s nightvision mode and microphone as those features will definitely consume battery. Also, you may also need to know that you won’t drain any battery if you’re just using your camera, so you won’t have the need to put it away all the time.
You can’t fight. So run away.
Let me say it again: you’re just a journalist who can only record. You can’t fight, it will only get you killed. If you happen to get spotted by flesh-hungry cultist or worse creatures, just runaway. Don’t hide on the nearest bush or corner as the AI in this game isn’t stupid. Run very far away, and if you’re confident that the enemy is far from you, that’s where you plan on hiding. Think of Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series.
Your enemies are blind as hell
Even though I said earlier that they are really smart, once get into hiding, it’s impossible for them to find you. As long as you’re not in the open and making noise, enemies will have the hardest of time to actually find you. Always crouch whenever you can and don’t get close to them demons.
Be on the lookout for items
Outlast 2 has a disgusting environment that will make you puke when you’re near to those icky substances. But that’s what the game wants you to do. Don’t mind to bloody floor. You’ll always find extra bandages and batteries when you’re looking beneath and behind stuff. It’s like real life, things tend to roll of the table and end up in the places you’ll look last.
Memorize the area
Outlast 2 is a kind of game that lets you enter the area, scout the surroundings before you head in to action. So explore the map whenever you can and take a look at where you can hide when the enemies start to chase you down. Remember that you can’t fight and the only thing you’ll be able to do to defend yourself from dying is to hide. Who knows, maybe you’ll find those hidden batteries and bandages too, right?
And that’s about it. Keep these things in mind, and we’re sure that you’ll be able to make your way around towards the creepy ending that Outlast 2 has in store for you. If you have any questions about the game, you know that the comments section is the place to be.
