I've played through SSBU's Classic Mode maybe two dozen times with various characters, and each time I've played through the Credits Game, where you have to shoot at the credits (plus a handful of polygonal enemies) as they scroll across the screen.

I consistently score between 1.6 - 1.68 million, but there doesn't seem to be any pattern to whether I score higher or lower on any given run. I've had runs where I've been hit by multiple enemies and missed a few names due to being stunned, and yet still scored more points than in runs where I didn't get hit at all and (as far as I can tell) hit every single name and enemy.

To add to my confusion, the high-score for the SSBU credits game on Cyberscore is roughly 1.86 million. I cannot fathom where people are getting those extra 180,000 points from, but there has to be some aspect of the scoring system that I'm not aware of.

So: how does the scoring system work for SSBU's credits game? What methods can I use to reliably obtain a higher score?

I'm aware that scoring anything beyond 1.5 million doesn't really matter, but my competitive streak has kicked in and just won't let this go.

  • I would recommend doing 2-player if you want to try to get everything. The second player can either act as backup or use larger bullets

I recommend not using the charge function where you can hold A for the Super Scope to charge a massive bullet, but instead to just go back and forth across the screen and spamming A. That is how I got 1.86 million, the maximum score in the credits. Other than that, there is really no trick to winning.

  • I didn't even know you could hold A to charge a bigger bullet. I've been weaving back and forth and spamming bullets this whole time. If there's really nothing else I can do to improve my score, then I guess that's fair enough.

  • Also, you should avoid the enemies. This is because they disable your blaster for a few secs. Feb 19, 2020 at 15:19
