Guardians of the Galaxy is an excellent game with a pretty unique combat system and, as a result of that, it can be difficult to know which are the best perks to unlock. As you progress through the game you will be able to unlock perks for Star-Lord that give you an edge in battle. Here we’re going to look at a few of the best perks to unlock.
The Best Perks To Unlock in Guardians of the Galaxy
To sum it up, the best perks to unlock for Star-Lord are Rapid Reload, Charge Consumption, Extra Health, and Extra Shield. There are a total of 15 perks for Star-Lord to unlock but these four should be your core perks.
Rapid Reload does exactly what it says on the tin. As you start the game you will notice that once Star-Lords element guns overheat you have to wait for them to cool down. Rapid Reload in the Guardians of the Galaxy game gives you the ability to do a quick reload that also fires off a large burst of energy at your foes. Think of it as being like a Gears of War-style active reload where you tap the triggers at the green point to end the reload early. It is an absolute necessity.
Similar to Rapid Reload, Charge Consumption will allow you to fire your element guns for longer. Charge consumption makes the element guns use less charge when firing them. This allows you to fire your guns for much longer before having to reload. You’ll be thankful you have it when you’re surrounded by wave after wave of enemies. In Guardians of the Galaxy it can be easy to get overwhelmed with enemies.
Extra Health and Extra Shield
I’m going to lump these two into the same boat. Although they are separate perks they are achieving the same goal, keeping you alive. The Guardians of the Galaxy game isn’t exactly unique with these perks. Extra Shield increases your shield points by 50%. Extra Health increases your health points by 25%. Not the most exciting perks of the lot but staying alive is better than the alternative.
The other perks in the game let you adjust your playstyle and trying them all out is really the best way to figure out what suits you. As your upgrade materials are limited at the start of the game, definitely focus on getting these four perks first. They are absolutely the best and most necessary perks to unlock.
Guardians of the Galaxy releases on October 26 for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, Playstation 4, PC, and as a cloud version for the Nintendo Switch.
