How to turn off Combat in Sherlock Holmes Chapter One

For the pure detective.

Developer Frogwares has been churning out Sherlock Holmes games since 2002 and fine-tuning their approach to the legendary detective over eight titles since then. Their latest game, Sherlock Holmes Chapter one, comes with some new gameplay elements that we haven't seen in previous Holmes entries—the addition of an open-world and a combat system.

Frogwares is mostly known for mystery and puzzle games. Still, in their latest Holmes title, they've struck a good balance between mystery and action with an interesting combat system that highlights Sherlock's lightning-quick thinking while testing the player's morality.

However, if you're a casual player that's just looking to solve puzzles and crack cases, it's possible to modify combat or turn it off altogether. From the main menu:

  1. Enter Settings.
  2. Click Difficulty.
  3. Choose Combat tab.

From here, you can change difficulty levels and customize the settings to your liking. For a combat-free experience, turn on the skip combat option.

Hey there! I'm Nick. I've been a gamer since I was a tiny lad sitting about three feet from my SNES playing Mega Man X and Zelda (A Link to the Past). I dip my toes into most genres but always find my way back to open-world RPGs and story-driven single-player titles. I love to write and consider myself lucky to spend my days working on content I truly enjoy.
