Best Combinations in Backpack Battles

Combinations are essential to survival in Backpack Battles. You can combine items with recipes in the game, and knowing which ones stand out will help secure your way to victory. While combos can be subjective, there are must-haves for each playstyle.

I find myself gravitating towards the food-based build because it’s approachable regardless of the luck I have in my shop. Here are the Backpack Battles combinations to focus on.
