Destruction AllStars launch day tips: 7 tips to wreck your way to victory

Get your AllStar career off to a flying start as the game launches on PlayStation 5 today.

Hey everyone, Destruction AllStars is finally here on PS5, full game available at no additional cost to PlayStation Plus* members, and we’re thrilled for players to be able to jump into the arena! 

Before you dive in we wanted to pass on a few tips and tricks to help get your AllStar career off to a flying start! Whilst the game is easy to pick up and play, there’s depth to the destruction and our AllStars are far more capable than they first appear.

Destruction AllStars launch day tips: 7 tips to wreck your way to victory

1. Vehicles are disposable

In Destruction AllStars, you’re better off not getting too attached to any one vehicle. During a match, you’ll want to be looking out for the best time to eject and look for a new ride. Mix things up and change your strategy on the fly. Grab one of the heavy vehicles to tank some serious damage or get behind the wheel of one of the smaller, more nimble cars to dodge out of the way or deal out some precision hits! Even your hero vehicle is ultimately disposable as you can get the chance to call it in multiple times during a match. Don’t overstay your welcome behind the wheel.

2. Use the Arena to your advantage

When on foot, you’ll want to be aware of your surroundings as you plan your next move. Our arenas have a lot of verticality with suspended platforms that offer temporary safety from enemy vehicles. Staying light on your feet as you wall run between platforms is crucial for finding a brand new car or getting ready to pounce on one of your enemies vehicles.

3. Use Pickups to turn the tide

Whilst you’re exploring our arenas, you’ll find a variety of pickups that can help charge up your breakers (abilities). Collecting shards from platforms and wall runs will charge your Hero Vehicle and Hero Breaker. Use these to get a head start early on in the game or top off that final charge to get your breakers ready for action! You can also collect Breaker pickups. Collecting five of these pickups will fully charge your team’s Hero Vehicles, making them ready to be called in. This allows you to coordinate some devastating attacks or come back from an early loss.

4. Dodging is more effective than jumping

When an enemy vehicle is driving towards you, performing a dodge (circle by default) can be more rewarding than simply jumping. If you perform a successful dodge, you’ll have the option to jump on top of their car and try to either take or wreck their vehicle! You can use this to secure a new ride as fast as possible or to get a wreck. 

5. Team games are built for coordination

In Stockpile and Carnado, coordination and communication will separate the winners from the true champions. In Stockpile, defending your banks is just as important as collecting gears. Choose the right AllStar to stand their ground with their Hero Breaker and push your opponents off the banks. In Carnado, Hero Vehicles can store more gears than regular vehicles. Keep an eye out for your opponent’s Hero Vehicles and give them a wide berth. Pick your moment to strike to deny them a lucrative deposit for their team!

6. Practise Mode

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by some of the tips above, you can visit practise mode to try out all 16 of our AllStars in the single player environment of our Practise Mode. In this mode, you can learn the rules of our four multiplayer game modes whilst getting to grips with the unique abilities of each AllStar. Practise getting around the arena as well as trying out new tactics until you feel ready to take on the world in our online multiplayer.

7. Challenge Series

Our Challenge Series are a way to learn a bit more about a character’s back story whilst competing in unique single player challenges against their Rival. Each event has multiple challenges to complete beyond just winning the match, giving you more reasons to replay a Challenge Series to unlock all of its rewards. The first pack you can pick up is Ultimo’s Challenge Series! Be sure to bring your game as you face off against his Rival, Jian, culminating in a final showdown! 

That’s all for now but hopefully that’s plenty to get you started! As we launch we’ll be closely monitoring community discussions and engaging with you all to ensure player feedback is integrated  through any updates as we expand Destruction AllStars through content drops, Seasons, events and more!

Thank you so much for your support and see you in the arena!

*Access to game at launch is only available with a PlayStation Plus subscription (sold separately) until 04/05/2021. Internet connection required.

  • I don’t have a PS5 yet but I’ve been watching streams of it and it seems really fun.

    • It’s real fun. I call it Destruction Derby meets Twisted Metal plus a dash of Team Fortress. Or for the youngsters, Rocket League meets Onrush with a little Fortnite.

      Visuals are impressive at 4K 60, real time deformation (destruction), several modes and maps, numerous characters and vehicles, and a full year of free support already planned. New cars, maps, modes, and characters will come free.

      Ppl don’t understand these developers worked on games like Motorstorm, Wipeout, Destruction Derby, and even Assassin’s Creed. All of these games show in DAS.

  • Hoping this game is fun just need to somehow get my hands on a ps5.

  • Thank you George,

    I am really looking forward to diving in and having fun!

  • Get a PS5 within a couple months while Destruction All-Stars is free..

  • It’s good fun! Been playing throughout the day today. Definitely nice to have another multiplayer-online focused experience on PS5.

    I think it was a smart move on PlayStation to release this game free for PS+ users. While it’s been fun, It’s not worth the premium $70 price tag it was originally intended for, especially with the cosmetic/virtual currency system they have in place. I feel that this game will only continue to improve as they add more content, events, etc like they mentioned.

    My one point of criticism so far is the lack of an option to disable/turn off lobby chat unless there is one and I just don’t know how to access it yet.

    • After you’ve joined a match (character select or during match itself) press the PS Button. The first card on the left is the chat, press Square on it to mute the chat, you’ll have to do this for every match. Don’t forget to mute your controller too. Hopefully the ability to disable chat in-game will be patched in.

    • I’m starting to think that I’ve been matched with abnormaly nice people. So far all the matches I have played. Most people mutr themselves and just talk at the end of the match to say GG or congrat people on their score.

      For the chat, you can lower the controller volume. You’ll loose some sound feedback from it, but it’s unnoticeable when you are in an online match.

  • Really excited to try this game out. One question though. Since this is a Sony-published game focused on vehicular combat, do you guys think is possible for a Twisted Metal collaboration in the future?

  • Can’t wait to play!

  • Could not get out off lobby chat, deleted after 10 seconds.

    • Not sure if this matters now BUT, you can mute lobby chats by pressing the home button that brings up the banner menu. Then pressing square on the first card on the menu which is the chat box. It mutes the tab, but you have to do this for EVERY match,

  • This game’s good but has a few problems, working the server you’re going to be connected to doesn’t seem to matter, there’s no option to turn off voice chat so the game below I’m actually turned down every other volume so you can hear voice chat and the game is kind of boring when players are nowhere near each other and it’s hard to hit anyone specially if they’re lagging.

  • What a great game, so much fun and the matches are utter carnage it’s insane! But wow what a rush.
    Got to say this is the best live service game I’ve played and I cannot wait for more content and new ways to play! Great work Sony and lucid games🤩

  • My only complaint is that currently friends can’t compete against each other. I understand not allowing party’s to play the solo games to prevent teaming, so why can’t we just be allowed to play arcade online? Let us create our own lobbies (that don’t give exp) so we can compete against our friends too. Sometimes we just want to beat each other up, instead of working together.

    A couple of suggestions:
    Skins: It’d be nice to see new skins in the future that aren’t just color variations (similar to Overwatch) I wouldn’t be opposed to a BattlePass type system if the game is going to be seeing constant updates.
    Modes: Smaller Team Modes (still 16 players) 4v4v4v4 perhaps? 8v8 just seems to be too few teams for such large maps, I tend to drive around quite a bit without seeing or hitting an enemy player. This doesn’t happen when playing solo games as there are 15 enemies all over place. Maybe its just the size of the maps compared to the amount of players, on team based modes your only looking for 8 of the 16 players. Seems to be too few enemies. Could be the maps are too big or there needs to be more players than 16 players in the matches.

    Overall though, I do enjoy the game. Expect Stockpile, that game mode just doesn’t seem to work well.

  • If they can make a copy for ps4 this game can get more and more likes about the game please make a ps4 copy love this game reviews and the videos I watch make the game so excited to play!

  • I would buy the Playstation 5 Console with the Disk Drive which is £450.00p not the digital one though that’s if anyware was selling them because i keep checking Argos/ Curry’s PC World/ Smyths/ Amazon & Game Websites but every time i check there websites it just keeps coming up saying Out Of Stock so it does’nt seem as if anyone can buy them over here in the UK at the minute

  • It would be great if it was made for the ps4 I’d would live to play it looks pretty cool
