U-Knighted's Complete Guide To Having The Most Fun In Battleblock Theater

Recommended Posts

"It's gonna be a ton of fun!"


Battleblock Theater is the best game ever, on the planet. But, have you ever asked
yourself, "Is there a way I can make this game the most fun, ever?"

Yes, you can.


And here's how, in just 7 easy steps.

(NOTE: This is NOT a guide to beating the game. This is a guide to having the most fun as possible!)


STEP 1: Plan it


This guide is mostly for people new to Battleblock, but returning users can use it, too! Something I do recommend is either resetting your data, using another account, or just trying the whole thing again. (Not resetting your data, and just playing campaign again.) Once you've chosen one of these, you can start planning.


Yes, even though some people think otherwise, you can plan fun.


Choose a night that you can play -- I recommend weekends, of course. Make sure your friend (yes, it's almost essential to have a friend to have the most fun in BBT.) can come that day.


Of course, make your play space is comfortable, and no one will interrupt. Set up some snacks, sitting on the couch playing video games can get you hungry. Obviously, grab some drinks. Soda, chocolate milk -- pretty much the best drinks you can find.


STEP 2: "Kill your friend and grab the jem!"


Friends are almost essential. I recommend playing on XBOX 360, mainly because instead of being huddled in front of a computer, you can sit back and be relaxed.


I definitely do not recommend online play. Why?


Maybe you want to actually have full communication, instead of relying on mics. Plus, you can share those snacks you set up.


Besides, friendship shouldn't be over screens, your friend should be with you, and should interact face to face.


STEP 3: Choose your mode


What will mode do you like the most? I don't recommend level editing if your going for a night of fun and laughter. (unless the levels your making are completely ridiculous.) Here are the top 3 things to do:


3. Complete it all


This is only for advanced players.

Have you finished the campaign? Cool! You earned the prize of awesomeness! Want to earn the prize of awesomeness beyond comprehension?


For example, unlock all the heads, unlock all the star heads, beat all the time levels, buy all the weapons (which you probably have already done in the normal campaign) or beat insane mode. This is a very fun task to do with friends, me and my friend pulled an all-nighter doing it, and we still aren't finished.


2. Arena


This mode is great for a group. Unlike campaign when you can only have up to 2 players, you can have up to 4! It brings out your competitive spirit, and it's a ton of fun!

I highly suggest ball game, it's my personal favorite! ;)


1. Campaign


My friend and I spend countless nights of laughter and rage completing the campaign. It's great to do with friends. Here's some tips:

Don't skip the cut-scenes unless you've seen them before, they're super funny.

Don't play some levels while your friend isn't. If you didn't get the campaign done in that one night of fun that we planned in step 1, plan another one! Invite your friend for more amazing fun!

Plus, it's much better to play together!


STEP 4: Don't take it to seriously


This is quite possibly the most important step. Don't play BBT so you get a perfect A++ score, play it for fun.


Now, if you get something like a C then that's completely unacceptable. Go back and do the level again.


Just kidding. Play for the fun, not the grade. Sure, a little challenge or friendly competition is alright, just nothing to a point where your playing the same level millions of times until you get a perfect grade.

You died? So what! You're rewarded with big laughs and, of course, a funny quote from the narrator.


Feel free to push your friend into the spikes, he/she won't mind.


STEP 5: No rush


Battleblock Theater isn't fun at all if you rush through it, skipping cut-scenes, punching your friend because he/she is going to slow.




You'll be sad when the story of friendship will be over. Make the most of it. Who cares if you and your friend are stuck on one puzzle for a half an hour, all that matters is that you're having fun!

Like I said in step 3, don't play when your friend isn't. It's better to play levels together!


STEP 6: Additional Settings


Here's some helpful settings to better your experience.


You can set how common the narrator speaks! I recommend Blabbermouth, because if this is set on, the narrator speaks more! Have fun laughing at his funny comments! (You can do this for the crowd, too! The higher the setting, the more they clap for your amazing deaths!)


I also suggest subtitles, so you'll never miss a joke in the cut-scenes! ;)


STEP 7: Plan another night!


The title says it all: do it again!


Try to make the most of Battleblock Theater!




So, just so you guys know, I CANNOT tell you how to have fun. These are just a few tips that a lot of people I know use!


I hope all find these helpful, and, if you have any ways you like to have fun with your friends, let me know! ;)




Let's have some more fun!


Fan Vs. Vacuum Cleaner

You and your friend should do something stupid.

Ad least once in your friendshipy quest, have one friend have the vacuum, and the other a fan, then use them at the same time.

Epic things will happen.

IMO, the even better way to have fun is brag while running around in my gold trophy, giving people 100 gems for free, showing them all the heads (including all star heads), and then mercilessly killing them with grenades.

Did I mention that I know every single way to deflect grenades? Even against fan spammers... :evil:

I just know that if you throw one right, then jump and spike it, it goes flying, and catches many n00bls off-guard.

Did you know that you can spike it again after they've fanned it towards you after you spiked it first, and it goes faster than Sonic in a Flinstones-esque car?

Or you could uppercut it to kill somebody whose spamming them from above, or even up throw if you have good timing. ;-)
