Tainted Coil Tips #3

Remember your Superior and Divine troops - for example, if you build a Warfather, he can then build a Superior Nun, which in turn can produce Superior Soul Kissers and Punishing Parties. Superior and Divine squads are more powerful than the basic troops, but cost the same!

Drowning Doom Tips #1

Gravediggers, while more numerous, have lower health than other basic melee troops. They may need extra support in the early game.

Drowning Doom Tips #2

Use your debuffers (Bride, Organ, and Dirgible). They're powerful, and the Bride and Organ stack their debilitating effects.

Drowning Doom Tips #3

Bride's Double Team is great for dealing with early-game Avatar harassment.

Drowning Doom Tips #4

Remember that you can upgrade your level 1 troops once your stage hits level 3.  If you've spent the game massing up those small infantry, an upgrade can really pay off.

Tainted Coil Tips #1

Your hierarchy units (Nuns, Warfathers, and Overblessers) are extremely vulnerable while alone.  They're much safer when they're surrounded by minions, because they get a small stacking healing bonus from each nearby minion.

Tainted Coil Tips #2

Punishing Parties' Double Team is good for dealing with early-game Avatar harassment.

General Tips #2

Don't play timidly. The game is about projecting power and taking control of territory. If you try to play defensively and stay in or near your base, you'll be at a resource disadvantage.

General Tips #3

If you set the beacon on a building, your dudes will attack the building until it's destroyed, ignoring any incoming attacks. 

General Tips #4

The right solo played at the right time can be devastating - don't forget you have those tools at your disposal!

Ironheade Tips #1

Ironheade is extremely mobile - use this to your advantage.

Ironheade Tips #2

Razor Girls' Double Team is great for dealing with early-game Avatar harassment.

Ironheade Tips #3

Remember that you can upgrade your level 1 troops once your stage hits level 3.  If you've spent the game massing up those small infantry, an upgrade can really pay off.

Schafer's Tips #1

In an RTS game you float high above the action, making one split-section strategic decision after another. You often command individual units to position them based on their heath and context. In Brütal Legend, you make strategic choices once in a while, but then you jump into the battle and slug it out in person. You can fly, but it’s mostly for quick scouting and transportation. You will spend a few seconds every once in a while popping into a menu to build troops or pick a guitar solo, but then you should be right back in the action. To play the game most effectively you need to be on the ground with your army most of the time, mixing it up with your axe, and your guitar, but most of all—using your Double Team attacks.

Schafer's Tips #2

Some people find it hard to split up the army and give individual orders to individual troops. This is kinda true, mostly because you shouldn’t be doing it! That’s how you play an RTS game, not how you should play Brütal Legend. True, there are times where you might want to split your army, but it’s not common. I play complete Stage Battles most of the time without issuing a single Individual order. Your army is most effective when it’s together. The AI automatically groups your warriors into battle formations where the troops support each other. Many of the units buff or heal each other. When they are together they can all be enhanced with a single Battle Cry (or other buffing) solo. And when they are all together and you are in the middle of them, that is when you have the greatest number of options for Double Team attacks.

Double Team Attacks

Double Team attacks are critical to your success in Stage Battles. Every friendly unit in your army has a move that they can only perform in conjunction with the player character. These moves are extremely varied, extremely powerful, and extremely fun to perform. Sometimes you might simply gain control that unit’s weapon—for instance, when a Razor Girl jumps up on your shoulders--but when you do so you increase it’s damage significantly. Other units, like the Bride, seem to be just passive, debuffing units most of the time (the Bride slows down enemy units) but when you Double Team with her she has a devastating lighting attack. More complicated Double Teams include the Frightwig, who Ophelia can pick up and throw onto an enemy unit. The Frightwig then wraps itself around the enemy’s head and causes the victim to join Ophelia’s side in the battle. (You can even use this to commandeer the enemy’s Rock Crusher!) The Organist is another passive unit whose Double Team attack allows you to gain direct player control over an enemy unit, giving you command over whatever attacks they normally have.

General Tips #1

Early in the game, low-level troops are vulnerable to enemy Avatar harassment; make sure you watch over them and protect them if necessary.
