What Difficulty Should You Play Biomutant On?


With three difficulty options to choose from, which one should you pick when you start playing Biomutant?

Biomutant, the post-apocalyptic open world adventure from THQ Nordic, asks you to pick a difficulty before you start the game. You have three options: Easy, Medium or Hard. But which one should you choose?

The difficulty mainly affects the combat in the game. If you choose Easy, you’ll find enemies go down without much trouble; even large enemies will succumb to your attacks rather quickly, and they’ll do less damage to you in return. Bosses can still be tricky, though – and some of them have attacks that can one-hit kill you.


Choosing Medium or Hard difficulty will affect how much damage enemies deal to you, and in turn how much damage you deal back at them. On Medium or Hard difficulty, enemies will take longer to kill, and you’ll take more damage if you get hit.

If you find the difficulty you’ve selected isn’t quite right, you can change it at any point in the game. Press ‘options’ to bring up the main menu, then navigate to ‘system’. From there, go to ‘settings’, and you’ll see the option to change difficulty.

If you’re an achievement/trophy hunter, you’ll be pleased to know that no trophies are related to difficulty in Biomutant.
