Bayonetta 3 tips for beginners – how to deal with the Umbran witch

FANS have been waiting for Bayonetta’s return for eight years. Now she’s back and better than ever in Bayonetta 3.

However, some things have changed since we last saw them, so even veterans might have trouble figuring out their secrets.

There is a whole new combat system with demons summoned from below.

Here’s everything you need to know to get started with Bayonetta 3:

The key is exploration

Bayonetta 3’s areas are larger than you think. Ledges, which would be the background in most games, are very much destined to be explored.

There are tons of secrets hidden in each of Bayonetta’s levels, from artwork and music to upgrades for your health and magic.

The main things to find are Umbran Tears, which unlock additional levels, and Verse for more battles.

You won’t really be penalized for not doing this, but it will help you get the most out of your gaming time.

Those legs aren’t just for walking

Bayonetta is known for her beautiful long legs, and they do a lot more than let her run around the map.

She can double jump and even triple jump when she hits a wall, giving her the power to climb onto rooftops and high ledges, which was not possible in previous games.

Many of the above secrets can be found here, so it’s worth familiarizing yourself with the jumps.

After Chapter 1, you’ll have the option to purchase Love is Blue in the Items section of Rodin’s shop for a whopping 17,000.

These are the default weapons from Bayonetta 2, and while they’re not powerful in combat, they do have another much-needed bonus.

Equipping these will unlock The Panther Within and The Crow Within, two very helpful movement options.

Not only is the panther fast, but the crow can fly while retaining most of its height.

Activating the panther – or any dash – is as simple as moving forward and double-tapping ZR. Infinitely useful.

Change your weapons

A large number of weapons are available in Bayonetta 3, and you acquire them slowly as you progress through the game.

Switch your weapons every time you get a new one by using the “Minus” (-) key to bring up the menu.

Each weapon plays differently, so it’s best to find out which one best suits your playstyle.

Unlike Bayonetta 2, you also have to manually add collected hearts and moon pearls to the menu before they boost your health and magic.

Learn to master the witch age

Longtime fans of Bayonetta will know how powerful this mechanic is.

Dodging an enemy’s attack freezes time while you can still move.

The closer the dodge, the longer the witch time, so timing this is crucial, especially on harder difficulties.

Buy and equip accessories like Pulley’s Butterfly and Selena’s Light to give you more time.

Control your demons

Along with the guns, you also get a bunch of demons to control along the way.

Each has its strengths and weaknesses, and it’s good to change them up often and see which ones work well for you.

You can trigger a demon with ZL by holding it down to keep it away longer.

Don’t be stingy with your demons. Their magic will recover fairly quickly over time, and they’re much stronger than Bayonetta’s basic attacks.
