General Gameplay Guide
- Transistor has been described as an action/turn-based RPG hybrid, but the game clearly emphasizes the latter. Always use the Turn() function to plan your attacks, and only resort to real-time combat if you have one weak enemy left or something like that.
- Experiment with functions. You may have your favorites, but there are all kinds of combinations to try out that work better in different situations. It also makes for a more compelling gameplay experience - as they say, variety is the spice of life.
- Try to unlock all of the function files to gain a better understanding of the story. The narrative in Transistor is purposely obtuse and may alienate some players, but adding in pieces of the backstory helps alleviate some of the confusion.
- Always have at least one or two Limiters equipped. The game feels a bit too easy with none equipped, and the extra experience that comes with Limiters is certainly a tempting incentive.
- Consider using Jaunt() as an upgrade ability. It allows you to use a function while you recover the all-important Turn() function, which can save you in key situations.
- Spark() is a great function for damaging a group of enemies.
- Hiding from enemies and turning them against each other aren't the two most glamorous attacks, but Mask() and Switch() are very useful functions.
Functions in Transistor help separate it from the rest of the crowd. There are seemingly endless combinations and permutations at the player's disposal, which makes for a constantly evolving gameplay experience that rewards experimentation. Listed below are all 16 functions and their many uses, whether it be as an active ability, passive ability, or function upgrade.
|Function||Memory||Active Slot||Upgrade Slot||Passive Slot|
|Crash()||1||Harm and disrupt nearby Targets exposing vulnerabilities.||Cause most Functions to stun and disrupt Targets.||Gain damage resistance and immunity to all slowing effects.|
|Breach()||3||Pierce Targets with great force across long distances.||Accelerate most Functions, raising their range and velocity.||Gain more planning potential in Turn().|
|Spark()||2||Launch fast unstable shells that split into explosive particles.||Split and subdivide most Functions for greater results.||Spawn a Copy when attacked diverting nearby Targets.|
|Jaunt()||3||Transport User to nearby location directly ahead.||Allow most Functions to be used during Turn() recovery.||Recover more quickly after using Turn().|
|Bounce()||2||Discharge a ricocheting bolt that jumps from Target to Target.||Add a chain-reactive effect to most Functions.||Gain a deflecting shield that negates damage to the User.|
|Load()||3||Form a volatile Packet. Strike Packet to produce a large blast.||Increase the area-of-effect of most Functions.||Generate volatile Packets instantly at a regular interval.|
|Help()||4||Call a Friend to aid the User. Plan Friend's actions with Turn().||Give most Functions a chance to prevent Cells from spawning.||Gain a 25% chance to become a Super User on using Turn().|
|Mask()||1||Conceal the User's physical self, amplifying the next action taken.||Raise the potency of most Functions when Backstabbing.||Become undetectable and faster after eliminating Targets.|
|Ping()||1||Fire rapid kinetic charges in a straight line.||Reduce Turn() planning cost and speed up most Functions.||Move much farther in a single use of Turn().|

Easy "Agency()" Achievement or Trophy Guide
You must complete each of the three Agency tests, which will become available in Recursion mode. The test requires fighting a clone of yourself in the layout of your choice. Switch cannot be used and area of effect upgrades, for example, +Load() are not needed since you will only face one opponent. Use a high damage combo such as Void() three times followed by Cull() + Cull() + Void().
Easy "Everything()" Achievement or Trophy Guide
Enter the Sandbox Practice Test. You will have five enemies for practice. Use Get() to place them into a cluster, then hit them with a high damage combo in Turn(). For example, use Void() three times followed by Mask() + Mask() to boost damage, then follow up with Cull() + Cull() + Load().
