In Redfall, each character has three skills, and a good skill is a big part of how well the character does.
What makes Redfall stand out are the characters’ skills. Even though some characters in other service-based shooters have perks, they rarely change the way the game is played. Most of the time, they’re just for looks. In this game, though, the survivors have different powers that change how they play.
In Redfall, players should build their game around a great skill. As they gain levels, they should put points into the skill to get even more out of it. Bad skills can sometimes be made better, but they are often only useful in a few situations instead of the whole Redfall game.
- Call up a magical umbrella to block attacks from both the enemy and your allies. While active, press (button) to send out a mental blast that hurts enemies nearby.
The skills at the bottom of this list are usually bad things to have. The Umbrella is the worst defender because it stops helpful projectiles from hitting their targets. Even if Layla’s teammates don’t mess up, the area is so small that enemies on the sides will be able to shoot freely as she channels.Change your class and put your money into Layla’s ultimate power instead.
- Tell Bribon to make himself a target for close enemies and take damage.
Even when Bribon is at the highest level and has put all of his points into Siren, he is still a terrible tank. He normally dies a few seconds after distracting an enemy. Worse yet, the most marks Remi for battle, which gives away her place. A third problem is that the statement is not perfect. Some enemies will attack the robot, but others will shoot right at Remi and her team.
- Bring Layla into the air with a telepathic lift.
Positioning isn’t the most important part of Redfall game, but it’s good to find some high ground. The biggest problem with lift is that it throws the figure into the air very slowly. This makes the player a sitting duck for people with long-range weapons, giving them a chance to shoot her while she’s in the air.
- Throw out a teleportation beacon that you can get to by hitting the button again. Allies can follow Dev by using the translocate device he leaves behind.
Translocate is better than Lift because it works instantly and makes it easy for partners to follow. Smart players can use this to get away or put themselves in a better position, but most gamers would probably rather have a more dangerous ability than a one-time move that only helps them move.
Remi: C4 Charge
- Throw an explosive that will stick to objects and targets. Once loaded, press (button) to detonate.
Remi’s C4 Charge is Redfall game’s closest thing to bombs, which is pretty useful. Because of how Redfall game is played, it’s hard to get more than one enemy caught in the blast unless you’re trying to start a fight. Still, it can be a big lead on easier modes.
Dev: Arc Javelin
- Throw a javelin at an enemy or a surface to create a lightning danger that will hurt nearby enemies.
Take the C4 charge, make it work right away, and change the damage to a stun. This will give you the Arc Javelin. Stuns are powerful, and because the ability goes into effect right away, it works well in some chapter missions that involve close-quarters fighting.
- Make a place where you and your friends can gather and get better over time.
This healing skill that affects a large area works better when used with friends. Most players will prefer to kill enemies from a distance, so they will have more strength and medicine to help them get better after getting hurt. Mobilise is a good tool for teams that would rather charge right in.
- Use Devinder’s heavily modified camera rig to make a powerful burst of UV light that stuns vampires and knocks out human enemies.
Blacklight is the most powerful skill against groups of the strongest enemies in Redfall game. It does take a few seconds to cast and is centred on Dev, which usually means he has to take a beating to put it down. But the result is hard to beat because it will freeze vampires and stun everyone else.
- Tell your raven to fly in front of you and mark enemies. By holding (button), the raven will stay on Jacob’s arm and look for enemies nearby while it scans.
As time goes on in Happy Wheels game, players will learn how important it is to mark enemies. Even when fighting alone, it’s important to know where all the enemies are. Jacob’s Raven will mark everything close or in an area, giving players more information than their enemies and making it easier to kill them.
- Brings a ghostly gun to you. Use the sights to lock on to your enemies, and then shoot to do a lot of damage.
Heartstopper gives Jacob a sniper rifle that automatically shoots at heads when it is pointed. Jacob can kill any enemy he sees in a few seconds if he wants to. The gun doesn’t have a lot of bullets, but even without improvements, it will kill a lot of enemies when it is first used.
Layla: Vampire Ex-Boyfriend
- You should ask your ex-boyfriend Jason, who is a vampire, for a favour.
Most of Jason’s enemies die instantly when he teleports from one place to another. This ultimate power is better than Heartstopper because Layla can keep killing enemies on her own while Jason does the same.
- Use the stolen Bellwether Cloak that Jacob took to hide from enemies. By attacking, Jacob’s cover will be turned off and enemies will be able to see him again.
Jacob is at the top of the list of best characters because he has three of the top four skills in the game. Raven and Heartstopper are great, but Cloak is useful in a lot of different ways. Jacob can hide and move to a good spot to shoot from without changing his enemies. Or, if the fight is going badly, he can hide and run away. This makes him even better when the game’s difficulty is set to the highest level.
Redfall can now be played on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
