Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Beginner Tips and Tricks

Listed below are several Beginner Tips and Tricks which will help you to progress quickly through Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

Use Star-Lord's Scanner to Find Hidden Paths
Star-Lords can use his visor to scan the environment and ping all sorts of objects, these include teammates, collectibles, enemies, lore objects and other things he can interact with. It is essential that you use this scanner to reveal destructible objects to create hidden paths.

Upgrade Star-Lords Visor to Highlight Components
It is essential that you upgrade Star-Lord's visor as soon as possible, so it not only picks up on environmental clues for puzzles but also highlights components which you can then gather and spend on even better perks for your blasters. The upgrade is called the Components Localizer perk. Knowing where components are will make your progression through the game easier.

Explore Everywhere to Find Hidden Objects
Every main objective in Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy has a waypoint, which ensures you always know the way to progress forward in the story. If you go any other way, you are more than likely to find some loot, collectibles, or one of the game's unlockable skins. Whenever you get scolded by one of your companions for taking a detour, it is a sure sign that you are heading towards a hidden object. Don't be afraid to venture off as the game will almost always rewards you.

Dialogue Choices Matter
As the team leader, you need to make sure you are careful what Star-Lord says as the dialogue you choose for him is not just witty banter that moves the story forward, it can also impact how missions play out. Siding with certain characters and making big decisions for the crew can often change how other characters feel about you.

Talk to Everyone
In Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, it is important that you communicate with the different characters that you encounter during the story that have a speech bubble above their head. Seek out these characters and take a moment to talk to them, as doing so will enable you to hear dialogue that not only reveals more about your crew but may also affect the story.

Ship Interludes
It's not just the characters you encounter on missions with speech bubbles above their heads you should talk to but also your own teammates on your ship before you set off across the galaxy on a mission. Certain conversations can only happen on the ship, so make sure you don't miss these opportunities.
