One Punch Man: Road to Hero 2.0 - Tips, Tricks, and Strategies
The newest gacha RPG by Oasis Games, One Punch Man: Road to Hero 2.0, has just hit the markets. This is an idle RPG similar to AFK Arena, where your characters continue to farm and generate resources even while you’re offline, and where battles are mostly automated. Just like its previous version, there are many different characters that you can summon and create powerful teams with.
In this guide, we’re going to give you some useful tips, tricks, and strategies to help you along if you’re just getting started in OPM 2.0.
Exploit Those Chase Combos
The combat system in OPM 2.0 is mostly automated, with your characters attacking automatically every turn. The only input that you have in battle is your ultimate skills, which you may activate once the hero’s rage bar is full. However, you can automate even this by activating the auto-battle function.
In essence, this is, quite frankly, an idle game, which means that most of your input comes from assembling the best teams for any occasion, and upgrading your characters so that they can perform at 100% effectiveness in combat. One of the most important aspects when creating the best teams in OPM 2.0 comes from considering the different types of chase combos in the game.
Most of the characters in the game have passive skills that can either allow them to levitate, knock back, or knock down the enemy when using their regular attacks. These passives also give a 50% chance of unleashing a chase combo whenever an enemy is afflicted by any of these status effects, allowing you to score some extra damage.
Chase combos are particularly important when building your team as your followup attacks are not limited to the character that inflicted the original status effects. In other words, if you have a team of characters that can perform a chase combo on levitating enemies, you have a very high chance of performing extra damage every single time the enemy is sent flying. In this sense, try to create teams with many characters of the same combo type in order to optimize your damage.
Use the Right Elemental Types for Every Stage
While chase combos are important for optimizing damage with certain teams, another thing that you must always keep in mind is the elemental system.
There are four different elements in OPM 2.0: Physical, Hi-Tech, Psychic, and Weapon. Their interactions are as follows: Physical beats Psychic; Psychic beats Hi-Tech; Hi-Tech beats Weapon, and Weapon beats Physical.
Whenever you attack an enemy with an advantageous element, you’ll deal 25% extra damage. In this sense, it’s important to keep these elemental interactions in mind whenever you’re stuck on a certain level. Perhaps all you’ll need in order to defeat that tough boss is to swap a few characters out so you can exploit its elemental weaknesses.
Luckily, you can also check what enemies you will be fighting before entering the stage, which allows you to always prepare accordingly for every encounter.
Every character in the game has his or her own set of unique skills, all of which can target different enemies. Some of these skills, however, can affect more than one opponent and deal lots of damage to either a line or a row of enemies. In this sense, the positioning of your characters is important as, if in the right spot, they will be able to affect more enemies.
For instance, Triple-Staff Lily is a Weapon-Type rare hero that, with her Staff Slash skill, can affect the target as well as the enemies on each side. In this sense, if you position her in the middle, she can damage the entire row, dealing tons of damage. Similarly, Snek is a Physical-type rare hero that can attack a column of enemies with his Snakebite Fist. Because of this, you’re better off positioning him in a lane where there are many enemies lined up one behind the other for maximum damage.
Like these two characters, there are many heroes in OPM 2.0 with these types of skills that can affect several enemies in specific positions. Every time you unlock a new character in this game, make sure to check their skills before adding them to your formation in order to place them in a slot where they may deal maximum damage.
Redeem Those Codes for Bonus Goodies
While this might feel like an OPM 2.0 cheat instead of a trick, you can obtain many free diamonds and cash in this game by redeeming certain codes. Some of the codes that we’ve found that were working as of June 21 2020 were the following:
- HERO4FUN: 10x Recruit Tokens.
- 3Hwdz5RT: Free Diamonds.
- ThxUrLikes: Free Diamonds and cash.
There are many different codes out there floating on the internet. We recommend joining the game’s official Discord server and Facebook page, where they frequently post new codes that you can redeem for free goodies. Keep in mind that these codes expire rather quickly (depending on when you’re reading this, the codes we left above might even be expired already!), which is why you should always stay on top of the news by joining the game’s official pages in social media.
Claim Your AFK Rewards Twice a Day
Since OPM 2.0 is mostly an idle game, your characters continue farming resources even while you’re offline. However, your AFK farming rewards are capped at 12 hours, after which you will stop producing materials. Make sure to empty your rewards regularly to avoid capping them and missing out on free resources.
What we usually do is claim our AFK rewards twice per day; once when we wake up, and then again before we hit the sack. This is the best way to ensure that your team is always generating resources.
One Punch Man: Road to Hero 2.0 has just launched, which means that this is the right moment to jump in and start building the most powerful teams in the game. At the very least, the other players that started before you won’t be too far ahead and you’ll be able to catch up fairly quickly. And with the tips in this guide, you can progress even faster than normal, especially if you play OPM 2.0 on PC with BlueStacks. Just remember to grab those free items from your codes!
