Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is launching tomorrow on PC, but it is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. One of the main highlights of the game is the skill Kaioken, which cannot be easily used. Players must unlock the skill first.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Kaioken Unlocking Guide
Kaioken is one of Goku's strongest and coolest move in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. As such, it cannot be used just out of their will. Players will need to know how to unlock it and they will need luck on their side as well.
You can only unlock Kaioken after the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Saiyan Saga. You need to play one of the Parallel Quests named Invade Earth and defeat the enemies. Nappa must survive so you can battle the revived Goku. You must defeat him and see if you are rewarded with the skill.
It is important to note that obtaining Kaioken is based on luck. It is purely random so those who want it badly can take their time replaying Parallel Quest 8 in order to unlock Kaioken. Well, this is not really a surprise to fans as Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 takes after its predecessor in the repetition aspect.
The Kaioken level is not based on luck, however. It is based on the Ki level of your character. If you have one energy bar, you get a normal Kaioken. For 3 bars, you get Kaioken x3 and 5 bars will get you Kaioken x20.
Keep in mind that x20 is extremely draining on the stamina, but with it, your attacks and Ki attacks will be exponentially stronger. In other words, the higher the level, the faster your stamina drains and the stronger your attacks will be.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Kaioken vs Super Saiyan
The Kaioken also increases Goku's strength, but it has key differences with the Super Saiyan technique. But instead of going blonde and having longer hair, his hair goes red. The yellow aura is also replaced by a red aura.
According to TechPlz, the technique originated from King Kai who taught it to Goku, who was the only one that was able to master it. It was showcased during his fight with Frieza in the anime. He also used Kaioken x100 against Lord Slug, but the level is not available in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 still.
The main difference between the two techniques is that Kaioken is basically charging. On the other hand, going Super Saiyan increases the overall power of the user.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Super Saiyan Technique
The Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Super Saiyan must also be unlocked. First, you need to be a saiyan at level 40 or higher. Then, you need to fight Vegeta, the one in Capsule Corp. time right. You will have to defeat him twice, then you'll have to talk to Bulma and Trunks to get your chance of getting the technique.
Goku and Vegeta will tag-team against you in their Super Saiyan forms. You must defeat them both, but don't worry as you can also use the technique in this fight. When you emerge as the winner, then you can finally go blonde.
There are a lot of unlockables in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and these techniques are only some of them. There are also cool characters that you can play as, too, by wishing on the dragon balls.
