Dragon Ball: The Breakers: How To Improve Your Chances At Being The Raider

Asymmetric online multiplayer games — titles like "Dead by Daylight" and "Friday the 13th: The Game" — are built around the concept of one powerful player facing off with/hunting down a team of less-powerful characters. However, as the years have gone on and more of these games have hit the shelves, one problem has continually reared its head: Many players just want to be the more powerful solo antagonist. This is obviously a problem, given that each match in these games requires only one such player. 

"Dragon Ball: The Breakers," an asymmetric multiplayer set in the world of "Dragon Ball Z," is no different in this regard. The title features a team of seven ordinary citizens stranded in the same "Temporal Stream" as a Raider, who becomes stronger each minute that passes. In other words, each match has eight players and only one of these players gets to be the villainous Raider. However, if your heart is set on playing as the Raider, don't lose all hope. Much like in the aforementioned "Friday the 13th: The Game," there is at least one trick you can utilize to up your chances of becoming the Raider from 1 in 8. 

Improve your chances at becoming the Raider

It's no surprise if most "Dragon Ball: The Breakers" players want to play as the Raider. Whereas the "ordinary" citizen characters are generic, the Raiders are classic "Dragon Ball" characters, including Cell, Buu, Frieza, with other villains to be added later (per Bandai Namco).

In order to increase your odds at playing as one of these classic characters, the most important thing you'll need to do is change your preferences. By pressing L1 (PlayStation) or LB (Xbox) before the start of a match, players can choose the Raider as their preference, increasing their odds to be chosen as one in the next match. The Raider selection is denoted by a devil icon. 

Of course, if every player were to choose the Raider as their preference, this wouldn't really up your odds much at all. Still, doing so certainly won't hurt your chances. Sure, it might be frustrating to not get to play as the Raider, but you can use this frustration as fuel in the fight for survival.
