How to Win Pull-Up Pro Difficulty


How to Win Pull-Up Pro Difficulty

Make no mistakes!


The most important thing to win the Pro Difficulty is to completely avoid mistakes. Falling off the bar will cost you approximately 10 seconds, and on top of that, your pull-up speed will be reset. It will be very hard to recover after making even making one mistake, so you'll have to aim for a flawless victory.

Clear out distractions!

The background noise and music in the gym can be very distracting for many, especially when the other gym members start counting in a totally different rhythm. You can try going to settings beforehand and setting both music and voice volume to 0, so you can focus only on the sounds made when hitting the buttons.

Watch Tifa's movements while pressing the button


As your number of pull-ups in a row goes up, your speed will increase with it, and the button indications will disappear. This makes it highly difficult to guess when to time the button presses. The key indicator is in Tifa's movements – when Tifa stops moving, it's time to press the next button.

Tifa's form may look jerky, but it's a kind note on the part of the developers to help make players complete this difficult mini-game.

Press exactly 6 times when Tifa gets fatigued


When Tifa gets fatigued, the button indications will appear again, and stop on a specific button. At this point, be sure to press the indicated button exactly 6 times quickly. If your presses are too slow, it might require a seventh press, which will waste precious time. And if you press the button a seventh time after you've already broken free of the fatigue, your chances of making a mistake will increase.

Don't worry about your opponent's score


Although your opponent may sometimes overtake or tie with you, mental stability is key for completing the Pro Difficulty. As your opponent will generally move faster, Tifa's score will be exceeded during the match, but if you let that get to you and try to speed up, you'll make a mistake and ruin your shot. Jules will always fall just before the end of round two, so just keep it up and aim for the best score you can.

That being said, you'll want to have done at least 18 pull-ups by the end of the first round. It will be very hard to win with any less than that, so you may want to save yourself the trouble and just go ahead and restart at this point if you haven't managed to score that many.

To keep a level head, focus on Tifa completely through out the match, and if you keep consistent timing throughout, you'll be able to beat Jules and win the Peeress of Pull-Ups trophy. To defeat Jules' score, you'll generally need to hit a score of at least 45 Pull-Ups, so aim to break your own record instead of racing with Jules.

Put a towel over Jules’ side and I immediately won 100% recommended this tactic!!! :)

I found just not screwing up in the second round I was able to overcome. Even if he had 3 ahead of me. He’ll fall with around 3-5 seconds. If you just keep full pace you can make it up before the game ends or he speeds up. Muting helped.
