10 Things We Wish We Knew Before Starting
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus does a great job of explaining its game mechanics thanks to a simple tutorial system. While these introductions explain basics like movement, stealth, and combat, there are still some things that would be good to know when starting a new game. What difficulty should you choose? Is it worth searching every inch of every level to find all of the game’s collectables? And how does that early story choice affect your game going forward? The answers to these questions and more can all be found in this list of 10 things we wish we knew before starting Wolfenstein II.
The Best Perks And Upgrades
There are a number of violent and grotesque ways to dispatch the Nazi hordes in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. But to do so efficiently, you’ll need to learn the best perks and resources to have at your disposal. Perks in Wolfenstein are entirely dependent on how you play. As you complete certain objectives, like headshot kills, you’ll automatically unlock perks that support one of three playstyles: Stealth, Mayhem, and Tactical. Weapon upgrades, on the other hand, are deliberate choices you can make when using upgrade parts, which you can find scattered around various levels and Eva’s Hammer.
The “Classic” Wolfstone 3D Easter Egg
In Wolfenstein: The New Order, there was a clever homage to the original Wolfenstein game that played out in one of Blazkowicz’s dreams. It wasn’t the easiest thing to find, but after interacting with B.J.’s bed, you would be transported to Wolfenstein’s former pixelated greatness for a quick level. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has a similar easter egg, but with an odd and subtle twist to it.Tags: games
