How to dodge in Gigantic

Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive, and Dodge

Movement is one of the most essential tools in Gigantic. Dodging is the best way to evade powerful attacks, but it’s poorly explained. With this in mind, let me show you how to dodge in Gigantic, as there are a couple of ways to do it.

How does dodging work in Gigantic?

Every character can dodge in Gigantic, and it’s an essential skill to learn as it briefly makes you invulnerable. Even without the invincibility, dodging is a great tool for evading attacks and reaching cover. You can dodge by pressing the left shift + A, S, or D. These commands make you dodge to the left, backward, or right, respectively.

Oddly enough, you can’t dodge forwards in Gigantic as left shift + W makes you sprint. It took me a while to figure out this ability; if you’re holding forward while inputting the command, you’ll sprint diagonally instead.

Keep in mind that dodging costs stamina, so you can’t spam it. I recommend using your dodges sparingly, as running away is sometimes the better option.

Is there another way to dodge in Gigantic?

If you’re struggling with the button combination, don’t worry, as I’m the same. Fortunately, you can double-tap a direction to dodge that way immediately. You still can’t dodge forwards, but I find this method suits my playstyle much better. 

Double-tapping may be slower, as it requires an extra button press, but I think it’s a small price to pay. You can also dodge while airborne with either input, which is a great way to make your opponents miss in a gunfight.

Are there any other ways to evade attacks in Gigantic?

Some characters have evasive abilities built into their kits, but it’s an exception. Mozu, for example, has an ability called Dimension Door, which offers an instant short-range teleport. Beckett has a Jetpack ability, and it’s incredible how many players struggle to track a flying target.

Other characters have great evasive tools that are even better than dodging in some situations. Imani, for example, has a Smoke Bomb so that she can make cover out of thin air. Whoever your “main” is, learn their kits and weave the universal dodge into your arsenal.

Dodging is an essential skill in Gigantic, but don’t sleep on the upgrade system. If you’re trying out Clash, it’s important to have a grasp on ability upgrades, as they are an integral part of the mode.
