The core gameplay of Project Smash is the PVP content where everyone fights using different styles and this beginner’s guide will help you grasp the basics. Project Smash has a very high skill ceiling and how you want to proceed from here will depend a lot on your fighting style. But hey, at least you’re not going to get knocked out every 10 seconds!
Complete Beginner’s Guide
The beginner’s guide to Project Smash is having a full understanding of what you can do. Project Smash is inspired a lot from Smash Bros, so if you have played that game, you can guess some of it now.
- Break Guards
- Use 4 skills from a fighting style
- Do 4-hit consecutive basic hits with M1
- Do uppercut while on air by pressing M1 while looking up
- Do a slam while on air by pressing M1 while looking down
Playing the Game
What exactly do you do to win in the game? By knocking your enemy out of the field! And with every hit you deal to someone, they get knocked further and further. The percentage above a player’s head indicates just how far you can knock them back.
- Casual PVP is always crowded with people. You can knock as many as you can for the Cash and EXP.
- Ranked is a 1v1 mode. Climb the leaderboard!
How To Recover
At the same time, you have to learn how to recover. There’s no way to reduce the percentage on your head. So, learning how to dash back to the field is essential. Depending on your style and the height at which you’re thrown off, you can survive.
Dash, triple jump, dash skill (if available), then dash again. This is a typical method most fighting style can use to recover back to the field.
In case you fall down, you can also climb up the ledge.
How To Increase Percentage
How do you increase someone’s percentage? By hitting them. The more damage a player receives, the further you can knock them back. And at some point, it will reach a range that’ll make it nearly impossible for them to dash back to the field.
Purchase new styles at the lobby by spending the Cash from winning any of the game mode. You can get more cash by also spending Robux to speedrun unlocking new styles!
