The game is too complicated / simple. Developers are constantly changing the balance and trying to make the game comfortable for all players. Most likely, the balance problem will be solved in the near future.

Opponents are too fast. There are many different fighting styles in the game. Opponents have exactly the same speed as a player with the same weapon. If your current style is too slow, we recommend that you get a weapon of a different style in any way convenient for you.

Throwing weapons. Throwing weapons are available after passing the 1st half of the 1st chapter.

How to upgrade weapons / armor? To improve weapons / armor, you need Shadow Energy. You can do this in your inventory: just select the item you want to improve and click on the improvement button at the bottom of the screen. In addition, items improve automatically if you are issued a card with a similar item. Every time when you get an item from a chest / booster that you already have (the same sword / helmet / etc.), and the item improves by one level of parameters, you get a small amount of Shadow Energy.

"Rules". In additional missions, there are sometimes "Rules" - additional conditions that affect the gameplay.Here is a list of the rules you may come across:

Leagues. After overcoming the last Dan, you enter the League. League is an activity for experienced players, which allows you to get valuable prizes at the end of the season. Each season lasts several days, and the reward for it is determined by your position in the League rating at the end of this period. After receiving your reward, your rating will be recounted at the beginning of the next season (this rule does not apply to Dans). If you have not reached the Leagues - do not worry! At the end of the season, Dan awards are also given. There is only one award, for the maximum received rank during the season. Boosterpacks contain Rubies and several cards of various rarities.

Please note: You will receive your reward only if you have participated in duels at least once during the season!

What does improving perks / special moves give? Improving perks and specials. receptions changes their characteristics (percent, time, force). Increasing the level of these cards increases the strength of the playerís attributes (the value under the overall strength of the equipment). The strength of attributes, as well as the strength of equipment, affects the complexity of story missions.

Why donít they give me coins for winning duels? There are two limits on the daily receipt of coins in duels:

  1. Coins are given for only 10 wins per day.
  2. There is a limit on the total number of coins received for the results after the end of the duel.

What is a strong / heavy blow? A strong / heavy blow is done by long pressing the attack button with your hand.

Why, when the time in a round ends, does the opponent always win, even if I have many more lives? According to the rules of the game, you must defeat your opponent before the end of the round time. The health bar in this case does not matter, even if your character has more health than the opponent.

How to make a spinning kick? To conduct this technique, you must simultaneously press the "Attack / Punch" and "Back" buttons.

How to perform the top kick? To perform a top strike, you must simultaneously press the "Attack / Punch" and "Up" buttons.

Why is my rating going down to warrior level? Before the start of the new season, the rating of all levels above the Warrior is reset. The season lasts 7 days.

Why in the store and when completing missions do I get cards of other factions, and not for my chosen? At the moment, in all missions after the 3rd chapter, cards of all three factions are drawn. Offers in the store are displayed for the selected fraction, and depending on your resources, maps of other fractions may be available. Cards for the selected faction drop out of the chests.

What is a set? A set is a set of certain equipment: a helmet, armor, melee weapons and throwing weapons. For each set that you have collected, you can collect a reward.

Shadow Fight 3: History of Factions

Messengers. Messengers is a mysterious faction with unclear motives. They are often compared to an inactive volcano that can explode at any time. This is well understood in the Legion. Heralds are extremely knowledgeable about Shadow Energy and Shadow technologies. Artful dynasty finds this knowledge very useful. The Emperorís family turns a blind eye to the fact that the Messengers freely move around the capital. Alas, commoners are less cute. They are afraid of gloomy, silent fighters in dark clothes. Their movements are mathematically accurate, fast and deadly, so even tall and powerful ones prefer to avoid direct confrontation with the Messengers.

Legion. The Legion is a militaristic faction. Their goals are simple and clear: the elimination of Shadow Energy around the world and the prevention of its rebirth. Their ideology is harsh: they do not accept any weakness, do not apologize or explain their actions, and do not want to make all the sacrifices for the sake of humanity. That is why other factions view the Legion with little benefit, to say the least. Legionnaires live by the harsh laws of the army, evaluating submission, dedication above all else.

Dynasty. There are a thousand martial arts schools in the dynasty capital; a dense anthill of a city where someone fighting and charismatic can gather crowds of loyal followers. The capitalís pace of life is very fast.Dynasty people simply do not know another way of life. This is why the warriors you meet are quick and graceful and prefer light weapons. Being on Shadow Energy, the Emperor of the Dynasty proved in practice that, if used wisely, it can serve the good of humanity. To the surprise of many, the country flourished! But the Legion was embarrassed by such a volatile mood. Since then, two fractions have fallen out with each other.
