Beginner’s Guide to Override 2

If piloting a giant robot was as easy as just getting into it and grabbing the controls, well, the entirety of Neon Genesis Evangelion probably wouldn’t have happened. But if you want to be the best mechateer you can and get to the top of Override 2: Super Mech League’s eponymous League, you’re gonna need to put the legwork in. Here are some beginner tips for Override 2

Hit Hard, Hit Fast

If you played the first Override game, you’ll notice very quickly that Override 2’s combat system has made some notable changes. The most obvious one is that the heat gauge has been removed entirely, so you no longer need to charge your moves or worry about burning up. Rather, all four of your main attacks come out near-instantaneously, placing this game a little more in line with a traditional fighting game paradigm. It’s a much faster experience, so you need to get a feel for how quickly your attacks come out.

Put in the Lab Time

Since your attacks don’t require charging, it is possible to string them together into proper combos. However, it’s not always immediately apparent which moves can combo into each other, doubly so when you factor special moves into the mix. Your move list will only tell you how to do specials, so for bread and butter combos, you’re gonna have to put in the lab time in Training mode to determine which moves connect. It’s like the early days of Street Fighter II!

Diversify Yourself

This game features the entire roster of the original game, plus some new additions. It’s okay to have a favorite mech, but you should definitely teach yourself to play a few of them, if not all of them. At the start of League mode, you’ll be randomly assigned a squad of mechs, so you’ll need to diversify yourself to get the most out of all of them. Even once you’ve bought your own mechs, you may still need to mix it up on occasion to fulfill a Sponsorship contract, so don’t get complacent.

Play At Your Comfort Level

When fighting matches in League mode, the game will automatically match you against other players of similar rank. Yeah, I said players. While League mode is the game’s main mode, you’ll be pitted against other players online. If other players prove too difficult for you, or you just prefer to play by yourself, that’s okay; you can opt to fight your matches against bots instead. It won’t affect your progression in the League, so just play it however you feel comfortable.
