Splitgate has taken the world by storm since the game entered beta in July 2022. Blending games such as Halo and Portal, Splitgate is a fast-paced arena shooter with players being able to create portals to move between areas of the map which really adds a new level of depth to the genre. The portal mechanic can make for some really interesting moments, but it can be hard to get used to, especially when it comes to harnessing it for high-level action. To help players learn the mechanics, the developers have added races to the game that focus heavily on portals, specifically to have a good time. Here's how to race Helix in Splitgate.
How to Race Helix at Splitgate
To find the Helix race, you need to head to the Training tab in the Splitgate lobby. The Training tab will give you the ability to complete races, the training field, and a bunch of different tutorials to learn mechanics. When you click on Races, the Helix race is third from the right, click the Start Race button on the bottom right to begin. You can play these races as many times as you want to keep improving your times and learning the mechanics. There's a race for every map in the game, so this can be a great tool for learning each map from top to bottom, as well as learning the portal locations for each.
It was recently revealed that the free FPS game will remain in beta indefinitely after over 10 million players installed the game in the first 30 days. Splitgate is currently available on PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility. A Nintendo Switch and mobile version is planned for the future, but no roadmap or release date has been given for these ports.
