We promise that you don’t need to do 100 push-ups, sit-ups, squats, and no loss of hair!
Combat basics of ONE PUNCH MAN: The Strongest
Quickly become one of the strongest in ONE PUNCH MAN by knowing the game’s battle system well. It is an RPG turn-based game and you’ll get to build your own team of up to six characters upon reaching level 26. The game’s battle mode is easy to understand as the game instructs the players while progressing in the game. Each character placed in battle has two moves, one is a basic attack and the other is Ultimate Skill. For the latter, it will need energy that you can collect from filling the gauge. Ultimates differ per character. Some character’s Ultimate may be an AoE line attack, a single attack, or even heal.
Moving through battles may be easy, especially with the Auto function but what if it doesn’t work anymore? In this section, we’ll tell you how to upgrade your characters, perk basics, and basic cores in-game.
Upgrading your character
During one of the game’s cut scenes, Saitama will teach you the basics of upgrading your character. Aside from using the characters in battle and quests, you can also use EXP soda cans and bottles. Upon reaching the character’s max, you will need to evolve and this will require additional items called medals and qualifications. These items are different per character and are available through farming and in the mall’s random merchandise.
Unlocking character perks
What are Character Perks? These perks are like the character’s additional passive skills. Each character has different perks. In One Punch Man: The Strongest, think of it like the hero or villain’s preferred teammate. The question is, how to unlock them?
You can unlock some of these perks by recruiting characters. For example, Genos has six perks. One perk involves the free hero, Mumen Rider, plus two other characters Deep Sea King and Speed-o’-Sound. This perk is “Battle in the Rain” and gives him a passive ATK +10%. Another type of perk requires you to ascend Genos Core to 1 star.
ONE PUNCH MAN: The Strongest Core guide
In this ONE PUNCH MAN: The Strongest beginner’s guide, we’ll tell you about Cores and how important it is in building your line up.
Genos is everybody’s first character aside from Triple-Staff Lilly. For Genos, he has Justice Power. Having him, Triple-Staff Lilly and Mumen Rider in your lineup activate the Basic Effect.
Take note that basic and advanced effects of Cores can stack and you can max it until Advance Effect Level 17. This basic Core gives the team additional energy to do ultimate skills.
- Basic Effect: It gives an additional 2 energy for ultimate skills.
- Advanced Effect: Increases ally ATK by 10%.
Upon advancing in the game and unlocking the Laboratory, you can further enhance your character’s core up to level 20. Using Research Evolution from the lab, it can increase your team’s power and all of the bonuses are stackable.
As of this writing, there are six available characters that can influence your lineup and add a buff to the team. A mixture of heroes and villains, the Core owners are Genos, Child Emperor, Amai Mask, Deep Sea King, Mosquito Girl, and Doctor Genus.
