Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is primarily an RPG, though there are plenty of battles to partake in as well. While it’s a blast to fight as Goku, there are times when you may feel it to be too cumbersome to take on a new random battle. To help save you time, we’ve put together a quick guide addressing whether or not you can avoid battles in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
Can you avoid battles in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot?
- You can avoid random battle encounters by disengaging and flying away in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
- You can’t avoid battles in the story campaign as you’re required to complete these in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
The short answer to the question of whether you can avoid battles in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is yes, you can. If you’re roped into a random battle encounter while navigating your way through the game’s open world, you aren’t forced to continue or finish the fight. To avoid the battle, you’ll need to unlock from the enemy by tapping your right thumbstick on either PS4 or Xbox One.
Once you’ve successfully disengaged, start flying off in another direction (any direction you feel like flying works). The goal is to get far enough away from the enemy to cancel out the battle. It’s a similar concept to the “Flee” mechanic in Pokemon. By fleeing the battle, you’ll be able to get away safely in most cases. The same holds true in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
So, if you’re flying to a specific objective and simply don’t have time for a random battle, disengage and fly away. Simple as that. Unfortunately, the same does not hold true for the story campaign. All battles in the story campaign must be fought. You can’t fly away from them.
Again, the only battles you can avoid are the random ones you run into while traveling from point to point in the game’s open world.
Now that you know whether you can avoid battles in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, be sure to read through some of our previous guides where we explain how to save in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, and approximately how long it’ll take you to beat Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
