And that’s where this guide comes in. We’ve played a great deal of Bazooka Boy and discovered the strategies that we think are going to take your skills to the next level. And maybe even beyond that. Oooooh.
Players who’ve already smashed some scenery and those lining up their first shots alike are definitely going to find something to help them out here. After all, these are the best hints, tips and cheats for Bazooka Boy.
Why did you fail?
When you fail a level it’ll be because you got killed or you ran out of bullets before everyone else was dead. If you died, look at why you died and how you can avoid it happening next time round. If you ran out of bullets, look to see what you can use to your advantage to kill your enemies more efficiently.
Learn how the scenery reacts
Different kinds of scenery will react in different ways. Wood will shatter, your bullets will bounce off pink goo, stone will move but not explode. The more you know about the items you’re firing into, the more likely you are to be able to use them to your advantage.
Use different guns
You can buy new guns when you’ve earned enough cash. Different guns offer different killing potential. Some spray out multiple bullets, others have a time delay on their explosions. Make sure you’re using the right tool for the job and you should do just fine.
Go for the biggest kills
In an ideal world you’d finish every level with a single shot and reap the biggest rewards. That means killing everyone with one bullet. Always be on the lookout for ways you can do that, whether it’s utilizing the scenery or firing in clever ways.
The gear is just cosmetic
The gear you unlock as you play is entirely cosmetic – it doesn’t change anything about the way the game plays or give you any extra powers. In other words, it’s really not worth watching the videos to unlock it. If you do want to watch videos to increase something, watch the ones to get extra cash.
