Shadow Warrior 3 Beginner Tips and Tricks

Listed below are several Beginner Tips and Tricks which will help you in Far: Changing Tides.

Take your Time
Far: Changing Tides is not a fast-paced adventure game full of action and combat. In order to get the most out of your experience playing it you need to approach the game with a relaxed mindset and be prepared to spend plenty of time exploring the landscape and completing the various puzzles. As you progress through the game you will begin to understand what happened to the world as the story unravels. Take a look at our How to Complete the Houseboat Puzzle to find out how you can add a new space to relax on your boat.

Get your Boat Seaworthy
Your first priority when you begin Far: Changing Tides is getting your boat seaworthy and being in full control of it so that you can get it moving in the direction you want. This means searching for the blue interaction points that will enable you to turn your boat on, control the sails, and maneuver the large rudder. Take a look at our How to Sail Faster guide to find out how you can traverse the world quicker in your boat.

Search for Interaction Points
It is crucial that you keep an eye out for the items that are interaction points. These items will appear at various stages of your journey and will be denoted by a blue color. They will typically be in the form of crates, boxes, ladders, levers, and repair items. Each time you enter a new area it is important that you find these items you can interact with as they will help you to solve the puzzles that move the game along. If you get stuck in a given area it will usually be because you need to find an interaction point there to complete some kind of puzzle.

You can Look Underneath your Boat
Keep in mind that you always have the option to hop off your boat and explore the murky waters below if you want to see what is beneath your boat. You will be able to easily get back on board by climbing up the ship's ladder. Aside from certain gameplay scenarios where it is essential that you explore underneath your boat, there really is no need to do this.

Zoom In or Out at Any Time
Don't forget that you have the option to zoom the camera in or out at any time in Far: Changing Tides. Take advantage of this feature to see what obstacles lie in front of your boat and what is coming up on the horizon. Being able to zoom the camera in or out will also come in useful when solving certain puzzles and interacting with your boat. Take a look at our How to Complete the Engine Puzzle to find out how you can attach an engine to your boat.

Environmental Objects are Tied to Puzzles
A big chunk of your time in Far: Changing Tides will be trying to decipher what to do with the environmental objects you encounter. Keep in mind that those same environmental objects will be somehow linked directly to the story and solving the problem they present will solve the puzzle that enables your boat to progress.

Make Repairs
It will be obvious in Far: Changing Tides when you need to make repairs to your boat because a component will either be smoking or on fire. When this happens you will need to acquire a small repair box in order to make the necessary repairs. Repair boxes will have blue denotations and a gear-like symbol on them. To repair the problem you simply have to pick up the repair box and take it to what needs to be fixed. The repairs will then automatically take place and the problem will be fixed within a few seconds.
