PowerWash Emulator I recently left Early Access on Steam and made it to Xbox via Game Pass. Looking at recent numbers and graphs, it seems that more people than ever are entering the satisfying world of digital energy washing. But while cleaning dirt with high-powered hoses can be fun and satisfying, it’s not quite as simple as pointing a hose at the floor and shaking your arm around.

So here are some useful tips and tricks to help you make more money and clean more efficiently PowerWash Emulator On Xbox and PC.

Divide big tasks into sections

Breaking down big, time-consuming tasks into smaller parts with multiple easy-to-obtain goals is not just a good tip for this video game, but it’s also a solid tip I use in my life all the time. Don’t think of the level as a whole, but instead focus on one large wall, the porch, every trash can, or a staircase. Before you know it, you will have cleaned and finished dozens of smaller areas and you’ll be about to finish the whole job.

Use ‘Dirt Vision’

When cleaning, get in the habit of pressing the “Highlight Dirt” button, which is the Tab button on your PC. We started calling this mode “Dirt Vision,” which is a much better name. No matter what you call it, this mode brightly highlights all the dirt left on the level, letting you quickly see how much progress you’ve made. It’s also useful in areas where dirt mixes with the environment or when you’re looking for one last spot of dirt missing.

Get low or high to clean out-of-reach dirt

You can quickly fall into a rhythm when playing PowerWash EmulatorMove from left to right or back and forth in a pattern. However, take the time to research and under everything you are cleaning. You will often discover a whole new hidden and dirty dimension to clean up. Also, use any ramps or ladders available to help get up to the rooftops of buildings or to high walls.

Missing spots? Use the in-game checklist

Even after you look high and low or with “Dirt Vision,” you may still get to a point where the body glimpses a stream of powerful soapy water jets. When this happens, don’t run in despair. Alternatively, open the in-game tablet and head to the Details sub-menu where you will find a list of everything dirty or clean in the level. You can even select an object to highlight in the world, allowing you to quickly find and clean it up.

Focus on the green and yellow holes

There are a lot of power washer machines, nozzles, and extras in this game and it might seem a little tricky at first. But do not worry! The first half a dozen jobs or so can be handled without any upgrades. For nozzles, you should rely mainly on yellow and green because they provide the best ratio of spread and strength. And if something hard doesn’t clean, get close and switch to red for more cleaning power.

Don’t forget that you can rotate the nozzle

Seriously, this is a very simple but important feature that you should use all the time. On PC, you press R to rotate and let go of the trigger on the Xbox. Changing the angle of the nozzle and the current will allow you to clean more efficiently.

Save your money

Just like in real life, cash is king in a world full of dirt PowerWash Emulator. As such, the savings are key to cleaning larger, more difficult jobs quickly and efficiently. It’s very tempting to buy tons of soap, new upgrades, and gloves once you’ve done the first few jobs and have some cash in your rubber jumpsuit. But stop, in the early hours of PowerWash EmulatorMoney is scarce, and you have to spend a little wisely instead.

Don’t buy soap (immediately…)

Very early in the game, you’ll likely discover all the different types of soap that you can buy for $10 a bottle. They can be useful, but they are expensive and there is a limited amount to buy. So don’t buy any… at first.

Upgrade your power washer ASAP

Instead, save your money and buy a stronger and better power washer that will help get rid of hard-to-clean dirt faster and make short work of most dirt in the game. Also wait to purchase any accessories for your power washer until you have fully upgraded the tool as the add-ons must be purchased again for each new machine.

Next, buy a lengthening device

Once you get a new electric washer, you can save up on buying an extension accessory. This will allow you to clean a larger area of ​​the area without having to move as much because the extension allows your water to maintain its strength even over longer distances, allowing you to clean roofs and windows high off the floor.

In the end, buy some soap and use it in moderation

While soap is not the most important or useful thing in it PowerWash EmulatorIt can sometimes help save time or frustration. Keep in mind that the soap nozzle is not very strong. But it has a wide spray radius and the soap will erode even the toughest dirt.

It is best to use soap if you have a lot of graffiti or stubborn dirt and want to get rid of it quickly. It’s also useful if you can’t get to the last little bit of dirt under a car or seat, as you can just flood the area with soap and let it do the work. Just don’t buy any soap until you’re at the level and see you need it. Stick to one bottle, too, so you don’t waste your money on unnecessary cleaning supplies.

Do small things whenever they appear

during playing Powerwash EmulatorIn career mode, you will sometimes have access to small jobs that make you wash one bike or car. With a powerful washer and a suitable nozzle, these tasks can be completed in a few minutes and are a great way to make some cash quickly.

Don’t Look At The Sun On Xbox

I’ve been playing on Xbox and I’ve been lucky enough not to have any crashes, but just to be safe: Don’t look at the sun until the game is corrected. You have been warned.

Get a friend to make cleaning faster and more fun

PowerWash Emulator, Like many video games, it’s more fun when you invite a friend to play. The game also supports cross-play across Xbox and PC, including Steam. Splitting the action with a friend is an easy way to finish levels faster. And it never gets old to shoot your friends with an electric washer and get them off the ceiling in the process. Believe me.

Play some music and relax

Load up your favorite streaming system and put it on your 80s jazz or pop music playlist. Whatever works for you. Cleaning in silence is fine, but cleaning with a soundtrack is always better!
