when using method attacks, make a difference between smooth and hard inputs, the smooth ones require you to do it as in a fighting game and have diagonal arrows, the hard ones just require exact button presses, for example, eliminator is hard, rejector is smooth.
one shot kills you if you are in wing mode, but the method gauge fills up extremely fast when bullets pass through the wings, use this with easy patterns or waves to get free method energy, a more pro use is to quickly activate them for short patterns or bullet waves, this is a godsend in bosses if you do it right.
aspirant is 500% shield, akashic is one life, but faster method filling, the other difficulty is normal.
for dread scissors and the second weapon after it, you can press shot while holding the shield button to use the second phase of the weapon, scissors have two phases, the other attack has three, and is easily the deadliest attack in the game if done right, however J. driver has more instant burst power, and is better since you will get method fast (i hope)
