Quick Tips for Beginners

Time Survivors is quite challenging, but with these suggestions, you will definitely be able to beat the game.

Your First Steps

  • Collect all XP gems dropped by killed enemies
  • Search for and destroy vases
  • Kill the white giant rats for loot and Gold
  • Kill Cerberus (~min 9 of the first stage), get his heart and buy the 4th weapon+item slot

Basic Tips

  • Don’t just run away from monsters; collect XP gems
  • Vases are highly beneficial. They drop useful pick-up items
  • Enemies anticipate your path, so use their different steering speeds to your advantage
  • Weapon + Item Slots: each character starts with 3. Buy a 4th and 5th slot with 1 Guardian Heart (dropped by mid-level bosses like Cerberus). Unlock the 5th slot by reaching minute 5:55 in the Ice Age stage
  • Character Upgrades: there are 3 areas to upgrade shown as small square tabs under the character description in the meta-progression screen:
  • Base stats: Boost defining traits, like speed for Anita or strength for Nero, plus others
  • Starting weapon: Purchase “Legendary Evolution” that activates at level 9 during a run (only for the starting weapon)
  • Character Ability: Enhance each character’s unique ability

Deeper Truths

  • Chrono Forge: Use this to exchange Gold for Damascus Steel, Guardian Hearts, and Time Crystals in the meta-progression screen above Claire’s node
  • Player Stats: Pause the game to view current player stats
  • Sandbox: Use the Codex (click on any of the slots) to read about weapons, items, and enemies, including their stats and invulnerabilities
  • Relic Slots: Note that some characters have 3 Relic Slots instead of 2
