After Phantom Rush, you have two options: Sonic Boom or Air Trick. Air Trick is the best choice in an early game, even though it seems a bit odd. However, Air Trick allows you to perform tricks in the air and gives you skill pieces.

With skill pieces, you can unlock other skills much faster. Air Trick is the best choice in the early game of Sonic Frontiers. Air Trick is the only skill that is not directly related to combat but will drastically help you in combat.

Sonic Boom

After Air Trick, you might want to aim for the Sonic Boom. This skill allows you to unleash shockwaves in the air. With Sonic Boom, you can avoid some close-range fights. You can easily counterattack enemies, who might be a bit dangerous at close range.

With its decent amount of damage, it is the best skill you might want to consider after Air Trick. This skill will be advantageous in the late game of Sonic Frontiers, as some enemies will be difficult to defeat at close range.

Quick Cyloop


Quick Cyloop skill uses the elements from the first skill you unlock, Cyloop. When using Cyloop, Sonic leaves a light trail behind, and when you close enclose the trail, some rings and collectibles will appear. It also helps you interact with some items in Sonic Frontiers World.

However, Cyloop is also useful in combat. With Quick Cyloop, you can perform a Cyloop right away. You can use Cyloop to lower the shields of some enemies. If there are no shields, the enemies will be launched into the air, which makes them vulnerable for Sonic to attack.

Moreover, Quick Cyloop is only restricted to one enemy, which means you will have to wait till the meter fills up again. Also, it costs 20 skill points.

Phantom Rush
