Before You Start Nier Automata

Here's a short list of tips that I wish I knew before I started playing Nier Automata. Leave a comment if you can think of any other tips new players should know.


NieR: Automata - Early Leveling guide Lvl 5 to 40+ & Material/ Chip farm

Having trouble with the early game in NieR: Automata? This guide shows you an easy location to level from 5 to 40+! It is high risk but high reward! This is also a great place to farm upgrade materials (Pristine Screw & Cable), level 3 Plug in Chips and money!

How to Hack the Bunny in Amusement Park | EXP Farming | NieR Automata

This video was made before the patch that fixed the gibberish text when hacking, but it was after the developers released the patch that removed easy targeting for hacking the bunny.
I suggest starting at around level 65 because then 9S would be strong enough to do a decent amount of damage. After continuous level ups, you get stronger and the time it takes to wake the bunny shortens.
How to hack the bunny in the amusement park in NieR Automata for farming EXP.
1. Play as 9S (of course)
2. Customize a Chip Set with attack boosting chips like weapon attack +. Make sure to equip last resort chips as these increase damage significantly when low on health.
3. Customize another Chip Set and put EXP boosting chips on it (to maximize EXP gain).
4. Equip the Chip Set with the attack boosts.
5. Self-destruct, or you can get hit until you're low on health but I find self-destructing to be a faster method.
6. Wait until 9S recovers a bit then start attacking the bunny statue.
7. Once the bunny starts to move, dash away and heal (for good measure).
8. Hack.
9. Save.
10. Load.
11. Repeat.

NieR:Automata - Advanced Combat Tutorial (Aerial dashing attacks)

If you're still having trouble doing this, a more consistent method for pulling this off is:
- evade
- move forward (after hearing the woosh sound effect)
- press heavy attack

the window between pressing heavy attack and forward motion isn't very large, and it's almost simultaneous.

"Better than many Final Fantasy games"- 10/10- Nier Automata review (20 minutes spoiler free)

Innovative gameplay, resonating story, shameless upskirts, epic boss battles & a flawless ost soundtrack. This Nier Automata review is not going to hold back on emphasising my strong conviction this is a 10/10 masterpiece. Though it is not a final fantasy I need this one time to have a discussion about NieR: Automata.

As the titles says, first 20 minutes is spoiler free besides a bit of gameplay in the back. None of which are cutscenes or cinematics however. Also a few Nier theme songs are playing which may be considered spoiler. After 20 minutes there will be plot spoiler alert announcement.

Nier: Automata Beginners Guide (How To Play, Basics, Should I Buy?, Tips...)

NieR: Automata is an upcoming action role-playing game developed by PlatinumGames and published by Square Enix for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows in 2017. The game is set in the same universe as Nier, a spin-off of the Drakengard series. Set in the midst of a proxy war between machines created by otherworldly invaders and the remnants of humanity, the story follows the battles of combat android 2B, her companion 9S, and the obsolete prototype A2.

Production began in 2014, with series creator Taro Yoko, producer Yosuke Saito, and composer Keiichi Okabe returning to their respective roles. Atsushi Inaba is acting as co-producer for PlatinumGames, while regular Square Enix artist Akihiko Yoshida designed the main characters. The goal was to make a new Nier game true to the spirit of the original, while creating better action gameplay. As a project entirely new to the developers, PlatinumGames staff faced multiple challenges when developing its gameplay and open world environment.
