The game slither.io has become very popular recently, and I’m sure many of you have played it. It’s similar to agar.io, in which you eat other players to grow larger. In slither, it’s slightly different. Instead of eating other players, you have to make them slide into your snake, after which they’ll disintegrate into a load of orbs, which you eat to grow bigger. Unfortunately though, it’s not always easy to do this, so here are some tips to hel you get to the top of the leaderboard!
This first strategy shows you how to trap your opponent, so they have no means of escape. To do this, you must find a player who is smaller than you. Then, you quickly circle around them using your speed boost (spacebar/left mouse click). They have no way out! Eventually they’ll give up, and run into your tail.
Tactic 2: Using Speed
For this tactic, the only thing you need is enough energy to speed boost. The best way to use this tactic is to find a player and then quickly speed boost in from the side, cutting in front of them. They probably won’t expect it, and if you time it right, it’s a guaranteed kill!
Tactic 3: The Lazy One
This tactic is for the people who can’t be bothered to try. For this, all you do is follow a large player, and wait til they die. This may take a while but they’ll go eventually!
Tactic 4: Quick Escape
If you are large enough, you will be able to go back into yourself. You can use this when someone is trying to get you, as you can turn back into yourself and go the other way, creating a wall between you and them!
Tactic 5: Get To The Crowd!
If you want to get big quick, use the circular map in the bottom right corner to track down where the most players are. From there, you can wait for loads to die, and eat all the mass that they drop!
