This guide will let you know hidden features and secret mechanics in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
Teleporting charged attacks with super saiyans.
When a character has transformed to a Super Saiyan (Super Saiyan 1/2/3, Super Vegeta 1/2, and future Super Saiyan), and when they use and charge a chargeable super attack, they teleport in front of the opponent and fire it.
Flying Nimbus Vehicle For All Races
A guy in the sky named “Oba” is flying around canton city. You will need to talk to him, and he will give you the flying nimbus vehicle.
The flying nimbus vehicle can’t fly, so you will float to the ground if you start using it in the air.
Full Power Energy Blast Volley With Homing Capability
The full power energy blast volley is an ultimate attack often seen as a garbage move that does very little damage; it is useful and has a quick start-up. When you knock your opponent away or to the ground after a combo, for example, those Ki blasts have a homing capability that follows your opponent to wherever they are falling to do a great amount of damage to them.

How Height Of A Created Character Effects Stats
There are four option settings for height; the taller the character, the more health they have. However, the taller they are, the slower their speed, and the shorter the character, the less health they have. However, the shorter they are, the faster they are in speed.
How Body Type Of A Created Character Effects Stats
There are three option settings for body type. The thinner the character, the more damage they do with ki-based attacks. The middle slider option is for a balanced character in terms of ki-based and physical attacks.
The wider the character, the more damage they do with physical attacks (basic and strike-based).
How Fight Style Effects The Created Character
When creating your character, the game asks the question, “What fight style do you prefer?” It does not affect your stats; it only determines your starting skills. If you select “I like it up close, nice and personal”, these are the skills.
If you select “I will hang back and blast ’em from afar!” these are the skills.
These are the skills if you select “close or far. I keep it balanced”.
How Being On The Ground Vs In Air Effects Stamina Recovery
Stamina recovery is affected if you air on the ground vs. in the air. If you are on the ground, your stamina will recover faster, and if you are in the air, it will recover slower.
You must notify the blue STM (stamina) bar and recovery speed in air versus the ground.
How To Quickly Fly To The Same Vertical Height As Opponents
Double-tap the ascend button (X ON PS4 by default) to move your character to the same vertical height as the opponent you have locked on to. If they are above you and you double tap, you will fly up to their level. If they are below you and you double tap, you will fly down to their level.
It is useful because it’s a little faster than normal ascending/descending. Also, being at the same vertical height increases the chance your attack will hit them.
How To Get Teammates To Help
It feels like CPU-controlled teammates in the game, especially during parallel quests, don’t help. They do, actually, but there is a trick to increase the chance to get them to fight the opponent you want them to. If you are locked onto a character, chances are your teammate won’t help.
If you change your target and lock on to another opponent, that’s when they will be more likely to fight the character you were locked on to. Sometimes it will take some time for your teammate to switch their target.
How To Get Potential Unleashed Transformation
You must Z rank every advanced test to get the potential unleashed transformation.
There are six total, and you will get potential unleashed at the end of the 6th if you Z rank them all.
Tips to get a Z rank:
- Do 20+ hits on one combo
- Finish the test with 80+ % health
- Finish as fast as possible (ideally under 3 minutes)
- Finish while transformed
- Finish with an ultimate attack.
It’s a good idea to do the tests while you are at level 80 since it’ll make them easier, so you will be more likely to get a Z-rank. To unlock each of them, you will need to do the one before it.
In between each test, you might have to do something else like a parallel quest (or a few of them) and come back to the advancement test desk so it will eventually offer the next test.
The potential unleashed allows Ki to charge quicker, decreases damage taken slightly, and increases attack power.
