What is Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic-?

Before we delve into the details of obtaining Goku’s Ultra Instinct forms, let’s first understand why this transformation is so highly anticipated. In the Dragon Ball universe, Ultra Instinct is a mental state believed to be achievable only by the gods. It grants Goku the ability to tap into the Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic- form, enabling him to fight with his body moving independently from his mind. This allows him to react instantaneously to any threat, making him a formidable opponent. When fully mastered, he can tap into the Perfected Ultra Instinct, transforming into a white-haired version of himself. Goku also has his own unique version called True Ultra Instinct, where he embraces his emotions while using Autonomous Ultra Instinct.

Where to Find Ultra Instinct in Xenoverse 2?

The highly awaited Ultra Instinct forms have finally arrived in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 as part of separate DLCs. Perfected Ultra Instinct was introduced through DLC 6 (Extra Pack 2) in February 2018, making it a playable character. Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic- arrived in DLC 14 (Conton City Vote Pack) in July 2022, bringing with it a set of abilities and skills to unlock.

Fulfilling the Prerequisites

Before you can unlock both Ultra Instinct forms, make sure you have the respective DLCs purchased and properly installed in the game. The process of obtaining the skills for each character differs depending on the DLC.

For Perfected Ultra Instinct, head to the TP Medal Shop to purchase the transformation’s skills and add them to your CaCs. As for Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic-, you’ll need to participate in Parallel Quests to roll for the acquisition of those specific skills.

Perfected Ultra Instinct: Shopping at the TP Medal Shop

Creating your own version of the white-haired Perfected Ultra Instinct is as easy as visiting the TP Medal Shop. When customizing your CaC to replicate this look, keep these properties in mind:

  • Super Soul: Ultra Instinct!: This Super Soul is exclusive to Perfected Ultra Instinct Goku and activates when your HP is at 50% or below. It reduces damage taken from attacks, boosts the power of your attacks, and increases movement speed, Stamina, and Ki restoration speed. Unfortunately, this Super Soul is not available for CaCs.

  • Strike Skill: Soaring Fist: Use this Strike Skill to rush towards your opponent at incredible speed and launch them with a powerful burst of energy. Increase the burst’s power and distance by charging it up to three times.

  • Ki Blast: Divine Kamehameha: Unleash the power of Perfected Ultra Instinct Goku’s energy attacks with this Ki Blast. Warp left and right while charging for repositioning, then release an extremely powerful Ki Wave. Note that the charging process stops if you get hit by an opponent.

  • Ultimate Strike Skill: Godly Display: With this Ultimate Attack, Goku rapidly attacks the opponent, bypassing their attempts to dodge. The attack finishes with a Ki Blast that increases in power based on the amount of Ki you have left when initiating the move.

Combat Tips: Mastering Perfected Ultra Instinct

Unlocking Perfected Ultra Instinct means reaching the pinnacle of Goku’s current forms. This variant of Ultra Instinct focuses on defense and timing, giving you the ability to punish enemies before they can counter. Here are some gameplay tips to unleash the full potential of Perfected Ultra Instinct:

  • Get Burst Charge for guaranteed Ki Charge: Opt for Burst Charge instead of slow-starters like Ultimate Charge. Burst Charge provides you with a fast-acting charge that slows down over time, giving you fewer but more substantial Ki at the onset.

  • SGameTopic of Awakening maximizes damage: Consider using SGameTopic of Awakening as it synergizes well with Goku’s fast-paced kit. This move starts with a rush-vanish followed by a 21-hit assault, finishing with a powerful blue energy ball that can deal up to 40% damage on hit. You can also input commands to appear behind the opponent before initiating the attack, adding flexibility to this Ki Blast Ultimate.

  • Manage auto-dodges: While Goku boasts an auto-dodging ability, be aware that the CPU takes over during automatic dodge sequences. Find ways to work around this feature, as it can often interrupt an aggressive fight.

Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic-: A Quester’s Journey

To achieve the awakening experience of Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic-, you need to purchase DLC 14 and access the Conton City Vote Pack. Unlike with Perfected Ultra Instinct, you’ll have to complete certain quests in Offline Parallel Quests to obtain the skills associated with Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic-.

  • Super Soul: I Think I’m Getting The Hang Of This: Obtain this Super Soul by finishing PQ 151 (Even Further Beyond). The victory conditions include clearing the mission within seven minutes and defeating Omega Shenron and his allies.

  • Evasive Skill: Celestial Wave: Goku pushes opponents away using Celestial Wave when under the -SGameTopic- form. Unlock this ability by finishing PQ 151.

  • Super Attack: Spirit Pulse: Goku focuses his energy into one hand and unleashes an attack that pushes enemies away like a rushdown. You can unlock this Super Attack by finishing PQ 151.

  • Ultimate Attack: SGameTopic of Awakening: Experience the true might of Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic- with this Ultimate Attack. Finish PQ 154 (Dabura The Loyal? Servant) within 10 minutes by defeating Metal Cooler, Majin Buu, Super 17, Baby, and Omega Shenron.

Combat Tips: Unleashing Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic-

While Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic- may be an inferior version compared to Perfected Ultra Instinct, this recent DLC character can still hold its own in combat with the right strategy. Here are some tips to maximize your effectiveness with Ultra Instinct -SGameTopic-:

  • Go for more defensive plays: Goku (UIS) excels in a defensive role, thanks to his more balanced stats compared to Goku (PUI). The absence of auto-dodge until your health is low gives you more versatility to execute combos.

  • SGameTopic of Awakening can be evasive: Use SGameTopic of Awakening as a punishing evasive move when enemies rush towards you. Its initial rush surpasses enemy movement and sets up the rest of the attack, making it a valuable tool in certain situations.

  • Save auto-dodge for later: Don’t rely too heavily on auto-dodge, as it only activates at low health. Avoid reckless fights and find alternative ways to outmaneuver opponents, as skilled players can easily exploit auto-dodge.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC.
