Catching arrows is perhaps the most important thing in TowerFall. If you can master that, you can beat anyone. It's even possible to catch multiple arrows at once with perfect timing.
Be careful when opening treasure chests, there may be a bomb inside!
Remember that levels wrap around. Shooting an arrow to the left of the map to target someone on the right side always proves satisfying.
Spamming arrows can be a valid strategy in certain situations, though it may upset your opponent...
Remember to jump on opponents' heads, especially if you run out of arrows.
When time runs short and the walls start caving in, use that to your advantage. Your opponent may be distracted, which is a great time to be more aggressive.
Laser arrows can be very dangerous – be sure not to accidentally kill yourself.
Holding the shoot button allows you to aim your arrows, so use it often.
Don't use special arrows haphazardly. Wait for the perfect opportunity to use them, even if it means being less aggressive. Wasting a perfectly good bomb arrow is a terrible thing.
We all love shiny treasure chests, but don't let your guard down. Your opponent also knows your intentions and may be waiting to target you when you head for the bait.
