Beat Saber - the best tips

Check out all the tips and techniques to improve your high score in the VR Beat Saber rhythm game and get the best score.

If Beat Saber is a pretty easy game to pick up, reaching a high score is another matter. In addition to slicing the blocks with the right rhythm, synchronized with the music, you will also have to perfect your “swing”.

The operation of the score system is not specified in the game, and many players are wondering how to improve their score. Here are some tips that will help you.

In this video put online by the developer Beat Games, we see that performing a large swing in the shape of an arc allows to obtain the maximum points at each cut. In addition, the alignment of the cut also comes into play.

The values ​​of score and degrees of angles have, however, been slightly modified since this video. In detail, the angle of your swing should ideally be 100 degrees before slicing. After cutting, it must be 60 degrees. Cutting closer to the center of the arrow will earn you a few extra points.

Beat Saber: get the maximum score on each sliced ​​block

By taking an ideal swing angle before and after the cut, you will be able to get a maximum of 100 points. With a center cut, you’ll get 15 extra points. In total, you can get a maximum of 115 points per note.

If you succeed in stringing the right notes, the combo counter will allow you to multiply your score with each note up to eight times. If you miss a block, the counter drops to x1.

To reach a rank S or SS, it is therefore advisable to keep your combo counter at eight and to cut each block with the perfect angle and in a centered way.

To progress, do not hesitate to try the Practice Mode. This mode will allow you to train on a specific part of any song or even play it in slow motion to memorize the most complex sequences of blocks…

As a reminder, Beat Saber is one of the first VR games to have passed the milestone of one million downloads. It is available on Oculus Rift, Steam VR, Oculus Quest or PSVR.
