Booster Gun is a game that sees you firing powerful rockets at your foes. Instead of exploding, those rockets latch on and take your unsuspecting victim spinning around the level. It’s a neat idea, but it isn’t without its challenges.
And those challenges are why we’ve written this strategy guide. It’s packed full of all of the hints, tips and tricks we’ve discovered during our time playing Booster Gun. And now we’re sharing them with you.
Even if you’ve fired a bunch of booster shots, we reckon you’re going to find something here to help you out. And if you’re a newcomer, well, this guide is basically indispensable. So let’s get on with it – here are the best hints, tips and cheats for Booster Gun.
Go for headshots
As in most shooting games, the headshot is your most powerful attack. You can take out the vast majority of enemies with a single blast if you hit them in the head. Wherever possible, you should be aiming for a headshot, it’s as simple as that. Obviously, there are going to be times where it’s impossible, but for the most part – aim for the head.
Blast armored opponents
When you’re up against opponents that are covered with armor, your best bet is to spam shots at them until they’re dead. While precision is more important with smaller foes, when your enemy has protection, it’s much easier to just blast away. Focus on the chest area, and you’ll be able to take them down pretty quickly.
Use the scenery
You should always be on the lookout for red barrels. You can shoot these to create explosions that’ll take down multiple foes in one fell swoop. Sometimes you can chain together multiple explosions to kill most of the enemies on the level before they’ve even noticed you’re there.
Shoot the chests
Whenever you see a chest, you should try and shoot it. It isn’t the end of the world if you don’t, but hit one and you’ll get a new gun to play with for the rest of the level. When you’ve finished you’ll get the chance to watch a video to unlock the gun permanently, so it’s well worth your time if you’re a completionist.
Take your chances
Sometimes when you’re moving between the sections of a level, you’ll be able to see the next group of enemies you’re going to come up against. You should be shooting them as soon as they’re in sight. Sure, you might miss, but you might also thin out the herd and make your life much easier. Always take your chances – you’ve got a massive gun, after all.
