Help Lag Around Big Snakes+Game Tactics Slither io, Slitherio TIPS - TRICKS - GUIDE - TACTICS - STRATEGY


One of the tricks to avoiding the lag is to hug the outer 1/3 of the map at larger size snakes. Must be much less to draw for the browser so the framerate increases a good bit. Still tricky though.

One of the things i hate the most about this game is the suicidal <500 point snakes. They see the big daddy and they just HAVE to throw themselves at it and screw the consequences. Its a very legit tactic and i do it myself to get a good lead in the early game =D

The larger you get the more conservative you tend to get. So use that to your advantage when dealing with the big guys. They wont take risks so much.

Also, when coiling around your tasty meals, remember that you are very compact and thus an easy target for large snakes to coil you.

I also think that head on collisions should always favour the larger snake. At the moment it seems to be based on RNG. Whichever the hit-detection decided what snake got hit first.

This game is very addictive. A very simple form of PvP but very pure.

Hello everyone I like the game but my biggest problem is the lag when ever I am big I lag so much that it is unplayable i end up running into someone I lag alot when I boost so I cant really control where ill end up if I had no lag I could play better I know there is not alot you can do about the lag I guess Ill have to put up with it.

second of all when a very mean hungry snake circles around you and they trap you is there any tactics you can use to escape because I have been trapping people alot and the game seems pretty easy by doing that is there any other tactics I need to know although it is not easy because of lag does anyone know how I can fix lag thank you for reading my text I know its long but just wanted something to be done about the lag comment below if you have any ideas on how to fix lag or tactics I could use thanks so much for reading I took alot of time into writing this the game is awesome.


@ERRA COTTA  For the trapping, there is nothing to do but attempt to dash at their head when they come around. For the lag…use a program like CCleaner or something to speed up performance or find something that suits you.

When you are big, try staying away from the centre. Too many small snakes who suicide to try to cut you off are a pain, and contribute to lag.

@aimnox For the trap: The trapper will try to make the circle smaller, to do that it need no put the head inside the circle, try to put your body in it’s way.

bigger snakes always trap smaller snakes sorry to say if u get trapped by a bigger snake there is not much you can do about it.

  1. Clearing Cookies other history helps with the lag. also change it to low quality. This low quality will be in the top right corner of the main screen when playing on the computer. I dont know where low quality is for this game in app. It lags sometimes and sometimes it doesnt. In the past it never did so i think when they update it to have skins and other junk it slowed the game down, bummer! also if your patient you can get really large on the outskirts away from the center. just be a slow filter feeder!

  2. Everything is perfect and I grow very big and all good all swell, and now I’m circling this ginormous snake and its going all went taking it slow and steady and wtf happens. I dash or a bunch of troll snakes around me make me lag and I freeze for half a second and there goes my hard work. F u Slither. I’m not playing you again, sorry.

  3. Sorry game developers but this game is such a disappointment, everything perfect but lag at this game is such a turn off.
    I have 300/50 MB/s, hp pro with i7 processor and it lags the shit out of this game. I don’t know what to do, probbaly nothing so good bye and have fun on your own with this laggy game.

  4. when you are being circled, just coil really tightly. If you keep doing it, the other snake will either leave or die by crashing into you or a nearby snake. everyone makes mistakes just make sure that you aren’t the first one to make one. Also, it helps if there are nearby suicide snakes. it can really mess up the bigger snake.

    My lag is when I boost around other people. I freeze then when it comes back I’m on the screen saying my score. How can I fix that? I tried tired everything. I use desktop and laptop so yeah it does it to me on both

  7. I have a brand new s7 edge and I’m lagging after an hour of having the game I lag before I even start ranking up. It’s got to be the game bc I’m right next to the router on a brand new phone with no time hardly spent on the game. I hope they find a way to update and clear the lag soon bc it is a really fun game.
