Learning how to battle your opponent is one thing, but actually learning how to win is another. This is why you should learn some beginner combat tips for Naruto X Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections.
Even if you read the tutorials, you won’t fully grasp how combat works in this Naruto game until you get on the battlefield. So here are some easy beginner tricks that I wish I knew before I started playing UNSC.
Naruto X Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections: Beginner combat tips and tricks
Pick the best characters
While there are over 130 characters to choose from in Naruto X Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections, some are simply better than others. This is why you must pick the best characters to win those extra-tough fights. Although you may enjoy playing with certain characters, they just may not be as powerful as others.
Also, certain character team combinations can lead to Combination Secret Techniques, which we have an in-depth guide on. When you decide to perform Linked Secret Techniques, certain characters grouped together will perform special Secret Techniques, which can give you an advantage.
Learn your combos
Yes, sometimes you can just spam the ‘J’ key and relentlessly attack your enemy, but that won’t work forever. At some point you’ll have to really get to know the combos. Whether they be general or character-specific combos, it’s important to use your best Ninjutsu moves or Secret Techniques to win battles.
You can check out what your combos are by pressing the ‘Esc’ key and look at your combo moves. It’ll then give you a list of special moves your character can perform. Keep these in mind when back on the battlefield, and surprise your opponents.
Simple vs. Normal mode
Sometimes fighting games can be tough, and you got to know when to limit yourself. This is when knowing the difference between Simple and Normal mode is important. Simple Control Style allows you to unleash the strongest combos just with a press of a button. If you’re new to the series, and want a more relaxing time, try this out.
But if you’re ready for a challenge, or you’re familiar with the Ultimate Ninja Storm games, you should pick Normal Control Style. This forces you to learn the combos, but knowing the right moves can be rewarding.
Don’t waste your Substitution Jutsu
This is my biggest mistake when in a battle. To stop enemy attacks, when you can’t escape from them comboing you into the ground, press the ‘H’ key to perform a Substitution Jutsu. You’ll disappear and reappear behind them, giving you the ability to get back into the fight.
Unfortunately, this has charges, and can run out easily. Instead of wasting your Substitution Jutsu, don’t just rely on that to avoid enemy attacks. Try to learn how to dodge, block and perform Counterattacks (K+L keys). This way you can allow your Substitution Jutsu meter to refill.
Learn about Support Actions
You’re not just fighting 1v1, but you’ll be in 3v3 fights most of the time. While you’re only controlling one character at a time, you’ll always have two support characters who can help you with Support Actions. This is also something we have a guide on, so check it out for a more in-depth description on what each Support Action does.
Essentially, each character in Naruto X Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections has a specific action they can perform as a support character. Knowing who you have backing you up can really help you during fights. Maybe you picked someone who can guard you while you charge your chakra, or you have someone who will throw shurikens in tandem with you. Know who your teammates are before entering a fight.
Naruto X Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections is available on Steam, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
