Surviving in Evil Dead: The Game may be difficult. This asymmetrical 4v1 PvP, based on Sam Raimi’s cult horror franchise, puts a lot of pressure on the participants. Survivors must recover the pages of the Necronomicon and the Kandarian dagger in time to close the rift between Earth and Hell that the Kandarian Demon has opened.
While its gameplay mechanics may harken back to Dead by Daylight or Friday the 13th: The Game, Evil Dead: The Game is far more. There are numerous parts of this game that must be thoroughly investigated, and even seasoned gamers may require some time to grasp it adequately. As a result, we’ve compiled a list of five helpful hints and suggestions to help you get the most out of Evil Dead: The Game.
Look for Items and Weapons
During your time as a Survivor, you will come across numerous weapons and things. You can use them to strengthen yourself, cure yourself, or change your weapon for a better one. Remember to turn on your flashlight if you go inside a building: it will help you see objects that would otherwise be invisible. Crates can be found all over the area, and they usually contain the best loot as well as legendary weaponry.
Don’t let Fear Possess You
Fear is a major factor in the game, particularly for Survivors. Look at the bottom-left of the screen, right below your health bar, to keep track of this meter. Fear gradually rises during each match, but it might rise considerably faster if you find yourself in an unfavorable position. You can rapidly hit the Fear bar limit if you continue through the map alone, are assaulted, or find a trap within a container.
You can lower this meter by finding light sources such as bonfires and lights, or by lighting campfires and lanterns using matchsticks. Otherwise, the Kandarian Demon will learn of your whereabouts and will actively seek you out, possessing you and attacking your teammates.
Do Not Stray From your Teammates
Each Survivor group in Evil Dead: The Game has four players. If you want to win the game, stick with your teammates and move as a unit. Splitting up is never a good idea because it raises your Fear level faster and makes you more susceptible. You can rely on your pals if things don’t go as planned: they can protect you from enemy attacks, beat you up if you get possessed until you’re free, and even resurrect you if you die.
Remember to Level Up your Character
You can collect Pink F boosters that allow you to upgrade your statistics during a game. They are usually stored inside crates, especially in the Epic and Legendary ones. You can find them during exploration or after collecting the Kandarian dagger and the Necronomicon pages as a reward. Remember to use Pink F: leveling up your character is essential to winning the game, as you can increase health, melee and ranged damage, stamina, or even keep your Fear levels under control. Keep in mind that these power-ups are not permanent and need to be applied during each match.
Dodge, Dodge, Dodge!
When approaching a fight, keep in mind that you can avoid attacks by pressing a specific button. Enemies can be difficult to kill, especially if they move in numbers, and they can significantly reduce your health. To avoid this, you must know when to dodge and how to successfully balance your stamina; otherwise, it will be all for naught, and you will die quickly. It may take some practice to master the right dodging timings, but it is well worth the effort.
You can always practice against the AI and deal with PvP later if you don’t feel secure in your abilities.
