Anthem Guide: Tips, Tricks and Secrets

Welcome to our Anthem guide , where we will help you become the best Freelancers in the entire Bastion so that you do not resist any of the threats that you will have to face throughout your adventure.


The story of Anthem presents us with a wild and hostile world, in which the Hymn of Creation , a divine power from the past, does both good and evil for humans trying to survive. Clad in exoskeletons called Halberds, Freelancers protect humanity .

In the midst of all this chaos, the Dominion, a military faction with a great lust for power, will try to take control of the Anthem and it will be necessary to awaken a power as old as that of the gods to face them. We currently have three story blocks to follow:

  • El Vigía Plot :Prevents the Dominion from taking over The Anthem’s power.
  • Legionnaires’ Challenges :after drawing the attention of the highest authorities, we are made a unique offer.
  • Expansions : Anthem willbe updated with new completely free missionscoming soon.
  • Puzzles :there are a few puzzles that we must overcome in some specific missions in order to advance.
  • The Tombs of the Legionnaires –Find out how to enter the tombs of former members of the Legion of Dawn.
  • How to get Corio :at a certain point they will ask us for Corio to continue with the story. Find out how to get it fast.


Types of Halberds

The Halberd is your character’s main equipment. There are four types of Halberd , each with its main characteristics, advantages and disadvantages. Although at first you can only handle one , as you level up they allow you to access all of them, of course. Sooner or later you will find out on your own which is the best of all , do not worry.

There may be new models later, but we currently have:

  • Command :the standard Halberd. Versatile, resistant and aggressive . You will start the game with her.
  • Colossus : the heavyweight of the team. Armor superior to that of the rest of Halberds and an anti-tank gun capable of neutralizing any threat.
  • Storm :This Halberd is a magician capable of launching fire, ice and lightning on large groups of enemies , leaving them within range of the rest of the team members.
  • Interceptor :The Rangers’ Halberd, the most agile and fastest model in the game. Her ability to stab enemies at full speed, retreat, and drop explosives along the way make her extremely efficient.


Within Fort Tarsis there are three Factions , each with its own missions, rewards and Contracts for our character. They are the main drivers of our history, and leveling up will help us get good pieces of equipment :

  • How to quickly level up the Factions: it is better to be clear how you can do it so that everything goes smoothly.
  • Rewards for levelingup – Why is leveling worth it? Here we explain it to you.
  • Arcanists :those in charge of investigating everything related to the world.
  • Freelancers :free contractors, responsible for accepting orders from all types of clients.
  • Sentinels :those in charge of protecting Fort Tarsis and heirs of the mission of the Legion of Dawn.
  • Legendary Contracts:Factions have special contracts to offer us, which will give us very good rewards.


Once you have advanced enough, a series of special dungeons are unlocked , which can only be visited from the Strongholds section . Completing these assignments yields a good number of prizes in the form of equipment and components .

In addition, it will be necessary to fight against powerful final bosses, also exclusive to these dungeons , and that will give problems to players who go to these places without adequate preparation.

  • Queen’s Mine –Find out how the escara get their acid weapons.
  • The Temple of Escara :in the depths of a mine lives one of the highest authorities among the Escara.
  • Heart of Fury –Relive the game’s exciting final combat as many times as you like.

Bastion and Regions Collectibles

Among the many Challenges in the game we have two huge blocks, which will take us an indecent amount of hours if we want to complete them completely. In our Anthem Collectibles section we show you how to find:

  • All Runes.
  • All the files.
  • All the Lookouts.
  • All the locations of the game regions (Districts, Points of Interest and Hidden Places).

Tips to start playing

  • At the beginning of the game we will be given a choice between four different types of halberds, each with its own characteristics and special abilities. Don’t worry too much about this choice, as as you level up you will also unlock the rest, so make sure that the first one is the one you like the most and catches your attention.
  • For your second halberd, we recommend that you choose Storm. His abilities are so powerful that they will allow you to play solo in Free Play and complete tasks without too much trouble when your friends are not available.
  • Floating and shootingis usually a very good strategy to avoid enemy attacks and put yourself in an advantageous position.
  • Don’t stand still. The fighting is very dynamic and we will suffer attacks from every imaginable direction, so always keep moving. Also, don’t forget to use your lap capacity to reposition yourself and get out of tricky places.
  • Use your skills constantly. These recharge in just a few seconds and are an invaluable resource during battles, so don’t hesitate to abuse them.
  • The game is not designed to be played alone (there are too many single-player enemies), so if you don’t have friends available and you want to go on missions, take advantage of the existence of public games so that the matchmaking system will find you companionsin adventures .
  • Focus on mission objectives. Eliminating enemies as if there was no tomorrow can be tempting, but you will finish much earlier if you focus on the tasks that they indicate.
  • If you are lucky enough to play with friends, take advantage of the voice chat to coordinate with them and create combos. These techniques are very powerful and will allow us to do a lot of damage, but they require that each player know what to do and at all times. In addition, you should get used to this as soon as possible, since in the postgame, in the highest difficulties, they become essential.
  • It is recommended that you focus first on completing the main plotto unlock all its contents and have access to everything that the game offers, which will make your progress much more efficient, since everything you do after the credits will count in the Challenge of Valor log, a quest that will ask us to complete a multitude of activities and that will take us a long time to complete.
  • If a mission resists you, feel free to use consumables before the expedition begins to make things easier. This is especially important in higher difficulties, where the damage we will take is multiplied.
