A Beginner’s Guide to Marvel’s Midnight Suns

When we talk about Marvel video games, most of us would assume that they would be action-style games and by their movies, it is not surprising to think that.

However, Marvel’s Midnight Suns is nothing like that. It’s a card game that requires planning and strategising, vastly different from previous Marvel games. On paper, this format might not sound as action-packed as the others but given enough time, the game really grows on you.

Then again, turn-based combat might not be for everyone. If you are new to this type of game, you might struggle in different aspects. Fear not, we’re here to help, because today we will be discussing some of the things you should focus on in Marvel’s Midnight Suns!

Trying Out Different Team Compositions


As we’ve mentioned, Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a game that feasts on its players’ resource and management skills. This means building your team optimally is very important for progression.

While there is no saying as to which team composition is the best, we always recommend players try out different lineups as they play. Knowing which lineup and what characters to bring for different scenarios can really help make many battles way easier.

However, if you are not familiar with the turn-based combat mechanic, we highly suggest bringing a Healer into every battle. Focus on survival and because healing is severely limited in this game, having a character that can heal can sometimes get you out of a mess.

Beware of Disables


Any follower or avid player of MOBAs will know that skills that hinder movement and mobility can be severe. This is even more true for turn-based games as losing a turn can cost you an entire battle.

In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, there are opponents that have disabling abilities like binding which can hinder your tempo, even when you are leading. These enemies are super frustrating and taking them out first is actually not a bad idea.

After that, focus your firepower on enemies that can cause status effects like bleeding or are capable of chain damage. If left alive, they can cause a whole truck of problems and throughout the game, they’ll feel like thorns in the flesh.

Diversify and Try out Different Characters


Although this might sound like our earlier point about team composition, working on different characters actually brings you another perk.

By using a certain character, you will be able to improve your relationship with that said character. And having a good relationship with them will grant you new skills and abilities that provide you with more diversified options in battle.

While you might have your favourite, experimenting with new characters is part of the game. Try them out and discover their skills. Whenever possible, work out which character works best with which and you’ll see yourself building a super team soon enough!

Try Not to Neglect Side Missions Too Much


A part of Marvel’s Midnight Suns charm is its dependency on resource management. Players who manage their resources and supplies properly will be rewarded. This concept might be foreign to players that are accustomed to action games but this is a core mechanic in this game.

One of the easier ways to gain extra supplies in Marvel’s Midnight Suns is by completing their side missions. Getting these resources will greatly help you in crafting—which is also another important aspect of the game.

From time to time, remember to stop progressing through the main game and give some love to the side missions. Their not that hard to finish and their rewards will definitely help you in the long run.

Altering the Difficulty


It is a good thing that Marvel’s Midnight Suns has a difficulty option. This means if you are truly struggling, lowering the difficulty can get you out of trouble.

That said, as you play more, you’ll progressively get better at the game and when you’re comfortable, you might want to change to a harder difficulty. This is because, at a higher difficulty, you will be given better rewards which will save you a lot of time farming for resources.

Even so, just make sure you are confident in beating a certain stage at a specific difficulty and make your own alterations that give you the best rewards.

And with that, we’ve made it to the end of the guide! We hope these beginner tips will help you with your Marvel’s Midnight Suns adventure. If you wish to purchase the game today, be sure to do so using our Xbox Gift Cards here!
