Dragon Ball Z Kakarot: Can You Change the Difficulty?

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot can get pretty tricky, especially when you’re facing down tough enemies like Vegeta and Frieza. Can you change the difficulty?

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot drops players into the iconic anime, allowing them to face off against DBZ villains like Nappa, Frieza and Majin Buu. It’s a fairly easy going game, though the difficulty has a tendency to spike during boss fights without warning. Whether you want to lower the difficulty or make things tougher, let’s take a look at whether there are difficulty options in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot.

Can You Change the Difficulty in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot?

Unfortunately, the difficulty cannot be adjusted in Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. This is a shame because the difficulty in DBZ Kakarot varies quite a bit as the game goes on. Fetch quests and low level enemies are usually a breeze, but main boss encounters and villainous enemies will take you down if you’re not careful.

How to Make the Game Easier For Yourself

Okay, so there are no difficulty options to speak of in Dragon Ball Z kakarot, are there any ways to make things easier for yourself? We recommend paying close attention to the level shown next to an enemy’s health bar. In our experience, making sure you are within a few levels either side of this value will mean you’ll find things relatively easy. To find out how to grind XP and level up fast then head here.

Is There a Difficulty Trophy?

Given that there are no difficulty options in DBZ Kakarot it isn’t surprising that there is also no difficulty trophy to earn. Whether this is a good or bad thing is up to you really, but given how tricky the game can be at times we’ll certainly be sleeping a little easier knowing we don’t have to chase a brutally difficult trophy.

That’s everything you need to know about Dragon Ball Z Kakarot’s difficulty options (or lack thereof). For more on the game, why not check out whether there are multiplayer modes to play through?
