Score Attack is a game mode that you can play in FFXV Episode Gladiolus. It’s a side minigame where you go through timed trials and score points by killing enemies. Getting certain scores can unlock new items in the game. In this guide, we’ll give you some Score Attack tips for Episode Gladiolus DLC, to help you unlock A New Blademaster Trophy (1 million points) and No Pain, No Gain achievement (500k points).
How to Get 1 Million Points in Episode Gladiolus Score Attack
Score Attack is basically a Time Attack mode that you unlock by completing Episode Gladio. You have to complete the levels as quick as possible and with as much time left over as you can muster. Yes, the timer counts down, so you have to be quick and think fast. It’s important to be strategic and smart. Getting to 500.000 and 1.000.000 points gives you achievements, so those are the numbers you might want to gun for. You can check out our Episode Gladiolus Trophy guide for more info.
As for how to get those points, there are several tips that you can follow. First off, run to every location; the quicker, the better. Time is of the essence, so don’t get distracted. Next, the combo count isn’t that important. As tempting as it might be to watch those numbers count up, it’s not really worth it. You want to stick to parrying instead to get your Glaive Art meter up for the really powerful strikes.
As far as enemies are concerned, each type has its own tip. For the bug-like and animal-like enemies, use pillars to wipe them out. For the more human-looking enemies, parry their attacks. Finally, for the bosses, you want to keep the final Glaive Art attack for them. This especially goes for the bosses where there aren’t a lot of pillars around.
Playing Score Attack mode unlocks the Gladiolus Rugged Attire outfit. By the looks of it, you can then transfer it into the main game. And who wouldn’t want to gaze at a shirtless Gladio?
