The Callisto Protocol beginner tips: 9 things to know before starting

Space may be the future of humanity, but if The Callisto Protocol points out that we need to be careful before taking that leap. Empty space‘s spiritual successor, out now for consoles and PC, is exciting and terrifying. But even if you can withstand jump scares, you’re not nearly as prepared as you think you are because of the difficulty – or the obtuse tutorials.

Whether you’re looking for ammunition or you’re just tired of the same encounter over and over, the following tips for The Callisto Protocol will save you some headaches while you explore.

You can block acid spitting

Getting spat on isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, especially when acid is involved, but you can defend yourself by blocking the projectile. When you’re about to get hit, just back off; this will cause protagonist Jacob to be wary and block the acid spewing. In addition, you can also use other enemies as mutated human shields by grabbing them with telekinesis and covering yourself.

With your baton you can destroy glass walls and windows

You can’t break in much The Callisto Protocolenvironment, but glass is certainly susceptible. This may become more apparent later in the game when some cabinets start showing ammo and other items, but watch out for rooms protected by glass walls as you can easily break them with your baton too. Save that ammunition for later.

Heal yourself only after defeating all enemies

It can be tempting to heal yourself right after an encounter, but you shouldn’t! I’ve lost count of how many items I’ve used a health injector only to stomp on an enemy and find out they had health gel on them, which you patch up on the spot. As you progress through the game, healing items become scarcer, so it’s best to hold on to them as much as possible.

Also a gentle reminder to stomp on all corpses. Yes, it takes time and it can be annoying, but they will drop ammo, credits or health 90% of the time.

You can grab boxes that are out of reach

As you explore the ship, you may notice a few boxes that are out of reach – sometimes they’re on top of a shelf or just out of arm’s reach. Since you can’t jump on command, you can go ahead and use telekinesis to bring that box closer to you. Then once it’s on the ground, go ahead and stomp on it. You can also use the boxes as a throwable object against enemies – keep in mind they don’t do much damage though – and grab the loot after impact.

This way you know what your current GRP level is

I can’t indicate your GRP level The Callisto Protocol? The key is to just aim down. Whenever you aim with the left bumper, you can see how many GRP charges Jacob has on his neck right above the health indicator.

Always explore the second available door or room

Rule of thumb: If you see the storage icon in the bottom right corner – whether you’re entering a room, squirming down a hallway, or crawling into a vent – it means you’re following the main path. It’s cool if you don’t want to explore further, but I highly recommend taking the time to check any secondary doors or areas you may have seen. If you’re lucky, you’ll come across a new weapon scheme or a chest of loot.

When you knock enemies off the map, say goodbye to their loot

Using telekinesis to throw enemies off bridges is fun, and I support your decisions, but issue a warning. Since killing enemies this way leaves no body for you to stomp, it means you’re missing out on their loot. If you just want to get an enemy or two off your back, that’s fine, but keep in mind that you might also be launching ammo and other useful items with that gauntlet of yours.

Yes, you will get more storage space later

If you are wondering how to increase your inventory in The Callisto Protocol, simple: you just have to keep progressing through the main story until you reach the “Lost” chapter. Same as this year Signal, you can carry up to six items at a time. This includes health injectors, GRP batteries, items to sell in shops, and so on (though weapons have their own slots). Fortunately, this is only temporary and you’ll gain access to a total of 12 slots once you reach the chapter, alongside a nice boost to your max health.

Get the heavy attack for your stick as soon as possible

If there’s one upgrade you should prioritize over others, it’s your baton heavy attack. These moves let you fight enemies properly, mixing up heavy and light attacks depending on the situation, to the point where it feels weird that it’s not part of Jacob’s move set from the start. But what can you do? Those shops on the ship are greedy!
