Slither.io: Tips & Tricks #3

Slither.io: Tips & Tricks #1

Tips & Tricks #3 on Slither.io
#1 Stay at the back of the fight!
Many times when a large snake dies in front of you a huge surge of traffic heads that direction in hopes of eating up the most colored remains. This turns into a massive bloodbath of snakes colliding into each other. When these fights happen, try to stay nearby and be one of the last guys to go for the bait. If you can be the last man standing, you'll be able to swoop in and gobble up many of the remains of the less restrained snakes.

#2 Soft-coiling for safety!
If you're in a particularly aggressive area and want to try to guarantee to be somewhat safe, don't just slither straight. Go in a small circle along the way or just turn a bit once in a while. Coiled in some weird ways for protection. This way if you're bombarded by aggressive snakes, you can turn your head toward/into your body and have more of a safe space than otherwise. Afterward, boost and get away from the other snakes. Don't be afraid to pop your boost whenever you have to, it doesn't eat enough of your size to worry about it too much once you're over 1000. You can also soft-coil around masses of particles you want, this way other snakes will either have a tough time getting to them or not be able to at all. This is Slither.io's version of resource management.

#3 Stay by the big guys!
Big snakes make big kills, and you want to be around when those big kills are being made, so you can have eat up the orbs in their wake and grow big. All good things must come to an end, this applies to Slither.io too. If you closely tail the giants and they happened to die from colliding or whatsoever reasons, you are the first to clean his body. But be careful about growing too large while this is going on, as you wouldn't want to be the next dead worm other players are feasting on.


#4 Keep your cool and follow you tail!
If you encounter an aggressive snake, keep your face protected by curling back in on yourself or doubling back the way you came. Or, the easiest way is to just follow your tail! You'll need to use a mix of these strategies if you're facing off against more than one attacker, but make sure you don't accidentally get surrounded by larger snakes when you're curling round your own tail, as you'll end up completely trapped. Keep your wits about you, and you'll eventually grow into one of the biggest snakes on the board. Just be patient and play it safe at all times.

#5 Practice and don't give up!
Growing big in the game does take skill, but there's a lot of luck involved in slithering your way into the top 10. Some of the greatest success factors like where you spawn, and the aggressiveness of other players can make situations tricky and hostile. These factors are something you cannot control, but you can practice overcoming. You can spawn right on top of recently-killed, massive snakes that shot me up to 5k+ size within my first fifteen seconds, and other times where I've stayed sub-1000 for a couple minutes because there was no action near my spawn point. There is no accounting for how aggressive other snakes will be, whether you're big or small. The only way to overcome these is to keep on playing and don't give up! The most hardworking snakes wins!
