 A Beginners Guide: The Beat Saber Crash Course

Welcome to Beat Saber! The world’s most popular VR game as of 2023! Beat Saber is a game created by the Czech developer BeatGames that focuses on the use of rhythm to slice blocks within a 3×4 grid to the beat of any tune using VR controllers. It demands a lot of physical energy and mental prowess to recognize patterns, timing, accuracy, and range of motion to be able to get high scores making the game a very competitive at a glance; but it has many different mechanics that make it much more intricate than meets the eye. It includes it’s own global leaderboard and comes with a set of five OST packs containing various amounts of songs at multiple different difficulty levels. From the beginner level “easy” all the way to “expert+” difficulty, with even multiple modes like “one-handed”, “90 degree”, and “360 mode”, plus all the different modifiers it offers, there is so much potential for the game and many different skillsets to master within the game. As Beat Saber has grown it’s community, it has fostered multiple different sub-communities like dancers, pro, challenge players (the ones who push the limits of the games mechanics) These challenges are absolutely captivating for new players, but all of the different aspects make it hard to understand to the inexperienced players of the game who would not know how to navigate through all of these different skillsets or how to go about getting better at the game as well as the sub-communities created around all of these different aspects.

Especially great for: 1. If you are starting the game and you want to learn more. 2. If you have recently started using mods. 3. If you often/regularly feel pain. 4. If you are a clinician and are interested in the game from that perspective. Interesting for: 1. Casual Players (non-top #5000) who want to learn about the game in general. I already know all of this minus the doctor stuff: 1. If you\'re in the top 2000 you probably know most of mentioned topics and know how to prevent injuries. And if you are a challenge player, please STAY CALM 😄
