Some tips and tricks on improving your Beat Saber scores are to start slow, change your in-game settings, and practice. Playing the campaign mode first is a great tutorial in learning how the game operates. After you have a solid feel on how the game works, you can switch to solo or party game modes. Start on an easier difficulty until you have a song mastered, then advance to a more challenging difficulty.
Some songs are difficult to beat, and you can’t practice them because you keep failing out. Try turning on the no-fail in-game setting. This allows you to complete the song the entire way through, even if you miss beats or get a low score. It’s a great way to learn the song and gain experience without punishment.
If you are having trouble learning one specific part of a song, then switch to practice mode in the game settings. Practice mode allows you to choose the starting point of a particular song and the speed you want. Now you can practice just that part of the song repeatedly.
There are a few other in-game settings that players might find helpful, like changing the static lights and debris. The static lights and debris may make the game look fantastic, but some players find them to be more of a distraction. When players slice through the colored blocks, they explode into pieces that remain on the screen for a second. This debris can be distracting and cause players to miss beats. Try turning the debris off if this is the case for you.
This game is all about rhythm and muscle memory. Keep practicing, and eventually, your body will start to memorize the movements. More importantly, don’t panic if you miss a beat. You are more likely to miss even more if you panic and start flailing your sabers around. Instead, use the missed beat as a small pause to take a breath and get back on track.
In addition to the game tips, make sure you have a large, clean, and well-lit play space so that your tracking is on point. Darkness and reflections can throw off the tracking sensors. Cover sun-filled windows and mirrors if they are interfering with your tracking sensors.
