The Sonic Frontiers tutorials don’t tell you about a useful secret trick, so here’s how to use the infinite boost.
In the open-world areas of Sonic Frontiers, speed is the name of the game, and players may find the limited boost bar a bit frustrating when running the length of a map to uncover all the missions and Cyberspace Stages it has to offer.
Fortunately, Sonic Frontiers has a way to bypass the Boost Gauge’s limit and boost indefinitely for a short period of time; however, players must have access to the Cyloop in order to use it to its full potential. Exploring every inch of the islands for missions and useful items is a great way to increase Sonic’s power and is also required to unlock fast travel.
How to Acquire the Unlimited Boost
After quickly unlocking the Cyloop, players can perform an Infinite Boost at any time, making it ideal for traversing the Starfall Islands. With the Cyloop, players need only draw a figure-eight or the infinity symbol. This replaces the limited boost gauge with an unlimited boost for a lengthy duration, allowing players to traverse the terrain at high speeds without worrying about running out of boost.
This is especially useful when Sonic is about to engage in combat with foes who leave a trail behind them, as he will need to boost for a long time to catch up and begin attacking them directly. With an infinite boost, players can significantly reduce the amount of time required to dispatch these particularly formidable foes.
If the boost expires, players can renew it by drawing another infinity symbol with the Cyloop, and they can do so even if they are already boosting. Drawing an infinity symbol while the infinite boost is active will refresh its duration, allowing players to always have infinite boost while exploring the open world.
Notably, since Titan battles occur in the open world, players can activate the infinite boost by drawing an infinity symbol during these encounters. This can be very useful for catching up with Titans, climbing up to the Chaos Emerald, and dodging incoming attacks from Titans, but becomes useless once Sonic obtains the Chaos Emerald due to the mechanics of the boss fight changing.
Sonic Frontiers is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Nintendo Switch.
