JYDGE Beginner’s Tips and Tricks

Valuable information for JYDGE, including keyboard shortcuts, New Game Plus, variances in difficulty levels, and other handy details.

Special Actions


  • To execute a powerful melee strike, hold down the melee button and charge it up for up to 8 times the damage. It’s important to note that you won’t be able to move while charging this attack.
  • If you’re using a mouse and keyboard, you have the ability to aim where your grenades will land.
  • Skip the introduction of a level or after completing a mission by pressing the E key.


  • To access the “mission failed” screen and retain your credits while also being able to change gear/loadouts, simply long-press the Restart button.
  • Click the ( i ) button in the main menu to view the patch notes and stay informed about updates.
  • Long-press the Jukebox icon to bring up a list of available tracks.


  • To view your loadouts, whether on the metagame or level fail screen, press the SPACE key or the X button on your gamepad.
  • Quickly switch between loadouts without opening the Loadouts menu by pressing the numbers 1, 2, or 3. This convenient shortcut works on the main menu gear screens as well as the level fail screen.

General Notes

Within the game settings, there is an option called “Low mission medal limits” which decreases the medal costs required for unlocking new missions. This feature allows players to access more levels at an accelerated pace. Although it deviates from the intended gameplay experience, some players may opt to utilize this option.

Additionally, in the game settings, you have the ability to disable the tiled view, altering the visual presentation.

For those who refrain from harming civilians, there exists a secret ending. By acquiring the Sin Eraser for $66,666, players can reduce the number of civilians killed by half, contributing to the possibility of unlocking this elusive ending.

Sin Eraser + New Game Plus

Contrary to its misleading button text, the Sin Eraser collectible in actuality serves two purposes: Firstly, it reduces the count of killed civilians by half. Secondly, it enables you to engage in New Game Plus. To explore these options, simply click on “Reset Sins.”

If you opt for “Erase All Sins,” your level progress will be reset, granting you the opportunity to embark on a New Game Plus experience. However, please note that this action will result in the loss of all your medals. Nonetheless, any unlocks you have already obtained will remain intact. It is essential to ensure that you have purchased all available unlocks before proceeding, as any unpurchased ones will no longer be accessible. Resetting the game in this manner proves advantageous for accruing additional credits, allowing you to acquire upgrades by replaying missions, earning medals, and opening loot containers once again.
