Use All of Your Options in Combat
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot Tips & Tricks
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot uses a combat system similar to past games, where it’s basically a third-person brawler. There are a ton of options the game gives you, however, and if you want to keep up in the tougher battles you’ll need to use everything at your disposal.
Of course you have your melee attacks and Ki blasts, but there’s also Super Attacks mapped to LB+face buttons. You’ll want to keep your Ki charged up constantly during battle, not just so you can use Super Attacks, but also so you can use instant dodges to counterattack enemies.
On top of that, if you have a party in battle you can use RB+face buttons to use Super Attack Assists, which have their own cooldowns. Then later on you’ll unlock transformations, and you always have your Surge gauge to use.
There are plentiful options so make sure to go through the game’s tutorials and be familiar with everything.
