The Surge is the next epic souls-like experience from developer Deck13, the studio behind Lords of the Fallen. In The Surge, players take on the role of Warren, a new employee whose first day at CREO starts with the facility going completely haywire. You’ll need to bring your skill and wits if you want to survive the mechanical monstrosities waiting for you as you dive deeper into the mystery surrounding CREO’s demise. This Surge walkthrough and guide will act as a hub for all of our content on The Surge, and below you’ll find detailed guides and walkthroughs to help you along your journey.

The Surge Tips

  • Take your time in combat. Like other souls-likes, the best offense is a good defense, and you should always wait for the opportune moments to strike.
  • Target the weaker body parts of your enemies, and be sure to focus your attacks to do the most damage. If you’re farming for materials, target the piece you need materials for, but be aware that this will make the fight much harder and longer.
  • Explore the area around you. You never know what secrets you’re going to find waiting for you at the end of hallways that don’t seem important.
  • Check your corners. Enemies are hiding everywhere, just wait for you to leave your back open to an attack.
  • Watch your enemy’s movements to learn their tells. This will allow you figure out when the best times to attack are, as well as when you should jump back to avoid strong attacks.
  • Bank your Tech Scrap if you’re worried about losing it. The Surge’s bank feature allows you to store your Tech Scrap safely with in the machines of the OPS Center. Store it here if you’re worried about losing it.
  • Don’t get frustrated if you die. You have plenty of time to get back to your Tech Scrap, and killing enemies will lengthen that time, so make sure you stay patient and don’t try to rush through groups of enemies.
  • Try to lure enemies away from each other, as taking on too many enemies can lead to a quick demise. You can lead them away using your Turret, which is extremely useful for grabbing their attention and pulling them to you.
