This is my first guide, and i’m not taking it very seriously. I’m mostly putting here whatever I find useful for me, for the sake of convenience(and because there currently isn’t another guide). I’m likely not going to do any more then light testing for whatever’s here, but feel free to mention any information you’d think be worth adding here regardless. I also wouldn’t mind adding additional contributors if you wish to edit the article yourself, though you may be better off making your own guide(You’re free to use any information here).


Core Augmentations

Core augmentations are generally the most valuable gear you’ll get during the run. Functionally, the armor upgrades that apply to specific parts of your body. Unlike the last game, you can hold as many Core augmentations you can find, and even equip two different parts on the same body(May be a bug) In exchange, this game introduced Core Capacity. Armor pieces cost Core Capacity in order to equip. You start with a measly 7, and can currently only get more through salvaging other items. 

Armatort, the Unstoppable

Armatort’s set is designed around brute force. The end goal of the set is to minimize the cost of taking damage, and pray you can kill the enemy before you get hit too many times. You usual idiot-resistant protective gear. 
Armatort’s Dome(Helmet piece:2 Cores) 
Gives you a chance to convert health pickups to armor pickups, also allows you to pick up health at full. Does not currently guarantee an armor point at full health, so arguably a downgrade in multiplayer. 
Armatort’s Shell(Chest piece:3 Cores) 
Grants immunity to both Knock-back and the Hit-stun Caused by it. Remember that you still take damage regardless of how it makes you feel. 
Armatort’s Pound(Arm Piece:4 Cores) 
Charge shots now destroy bullets on contact. Not much to say other then proper usage of it can make a fair group of enemies(including bosses) harmless to you. 
Armatort’s Momentum(Leg Piece:5 Cores) 
Gives you an up to 2 second hover while in the air. Has limited movement, but help save you from horrible timing, or simply to throw some extra damage at an enemy before gravity brings you back down. 

Owlhawk, the Wise

Owlhawk’s set was usually referred to as the “power” set. Without the addition of set bonuses, I prefer simply calling it the “survive-ability” set. The main goal of the set is to regenerate your resources before the long-term effects of using them so freely sinks in. 
Owlhawk’s Focus (Head Piece: 2 Cores ) 
This gives a 50% chance to not consume energy. Now you can spam twice as much. Particularly usefull with Owlhawk’s Reign 
Owlhawk’s Reign(Chest Piece: 3 Cores ) 
Gives your Power’s a chance to heal you when they kill an enemy. Free health never hurts, right? 
Owlhawk’s Talon(Arm Piece: 4 Cores) 
Gives your weapon a chance to restore energy on kill. Helps reward a proper balance of weapon and power usage, and free things for killing stuff is always nice. 
Owlhawk’s Feather(Leg Piece: ? Cores) 
Allows you 1 second of flight in mid-air. This has much more movement then Armatort’s Momentum, in exchange for half it’s time. In general, it’ll save you from much more precision platforming then it, while still keeping it’s function as a sustain tool against aerial enemies. 

Dracopent, the Foul

Dracopent Set’s can be refereed to as the attack set. Generally, this the only armor set that gives a noticeable increase in your damage output. The main goal of the set is to burst down select groups of enemies through it’s bonuses given to charge shots. 
Dracopent’s Fang(Head Piece: 2 Cores) 
Allows you to fire off two charged weapon shots before recharging. Double damage makes a pretty big difference. 
Dracopent’s Pride(Chest Piece: 3 Cores) 
Gives a chance for you heal based on your kills with your weapon. Did I mention I like free stuff? 
Dracopent’s Claw(Arm Piece: 4 Cores) 
Gives you an additional charge level for your weapons. Particularly powerful with This set’s head piece, but may not be worth the additional charge time in most situations. 
Dracopent’s Bound(Leg Piece: 5 Cores) 
Gives you an additional mid-air jump. most notable for being the only aerial tool that keeps your momentum after using it, making it particularly useful to reaching across long gaps. Otherwise, It’s just generally the easiest to use leg piece, at the cost of being an arguably smaller safety net then the other options. 

Oxjack, the Flash

Oxjack’s set generally seems to just have a bunch of utility attached to it’s parts. It lacks any clear identity the other two has, but each part individually has specific situations where they are notably powerful. With that in mid, This set doesn’t really have a goal. Unless you count “Just dash around more” as a solid plan. 
Oxjack’s Ken:(Head Piece:2 Cores) 
Fires a bolt based on the direction you dash. Fairly Redundant for Nina, but gives Ace a notable ranged tool that he usually is lacking in. 
Oxjack’s Guile:(Chest Piece:3 Cores) 
Creates a shield based on the direction you dash. For such a fast-paced game, the shield lasts for a fairly long time. Arguably outclasses Armatort’s Pound in terms of projectile spam. 
Oxjack’s Fury(Arm Piece:4 Cores) 
Reduces the Charge Time of your weapons(and powers?). Just your generic arms upgrade. Can’t really complain about this either way, especially if it stacks with Dracopent’s Claw. 
Oxjack’s Blitz(Leg Piece:5 Cores) 
Allows you to dash mid-air. Arguably the most clunky movement tool out of the leg sets. That being said, once you get used to the movement, this easily the best in terms of both exploration and bossing. The only real weakness of these is that it’s the only leg part that doesn’t ease precision platforming, and you can’t fire during the dash. 


Nina’s your classic jump-and-shooter, and she hasn’t changed too much in these years. With the removal of Energy Capsules, she instead gets energy from Life Capsules(at a rate of roughly 2 energy healed for every 1 point of health healed), on-top of their usual health gain. Additionally, she gained the ability to fuse two weapons together. The fused version of these weapons are almost always a straight upgrade, with the only cost being that you only ever get one of each power per play-though. Note that you can always change both your current powers and their fusions in the pause menu. 

Nina’s Weapons

Currently, Nina doesn’t have any truly unique weapons for her to switch to. Until we get some, this will only have the default N-Buster, and some core upgrades specific to it. 
Your standard lemon shooter. mash the button to rapid fire. It also has a charge shot that much bigger in both damage and size, as well as the ability to pierce through defeated enemies.30XX - Casual Guide 
30XX - Casual Guide 
At the cost of 2 Core Capacity, this upgrade fires in both directions. Currently, the secondary shots do not fire charged shots with you.

Nina’s Powers

Here’s the current information I have for Nina’s Powers. Currently, there are six powers. I will be explaining each power individually below, but here are some general notes about the modifers they give when used as fusion. Any fusion lacking pictures has little to no visual change attached to it.

Ace exchanges a ranged weapon for a variety of mid-short ranged tools. Aside a completely new set of powers, Ace has a few additional traits that differentiate him from Nina. The most obvious is his Style bar. It functions much like Nina’s Energy, but will regenerate on it’s own over a fairly short period of time. In Exchange, the bar is fairly limited in it’s actual capacity, and his abilities in general are less spammable then Nina’s. Additionally, Energy upgrades increase his Style Regen, rather then his Style capacity. 

Ace’s Weapons

Ace has a larger collection of weapons then Nina’s. While Ace’s weapons do not functionally change by charging it(other then the raw damage boost), he does have a skill that changes depending on his weapon. 
Your usual Saber weapon. Has a three slash combo. Unleashed throws a boomerang that does fairly consistent damage, and be jumped over to increase it’s range. 
30XX - Casual Guide 
30XX - Casual Guide 
A giant hammer. By far the slowest weapon, but one of the best in terms of both size and damage. Unleashed throws the hammer in an arc. 
30XX - Casual Guide 
30XX - Casual Guide 
A simple spear. Sacrifices the Saber’s vertical range for more Horizontal reach. Unleashed gives Ace a much needed ranged weapon that also functions as a platform.

Ace’s Powers

Instead of fusion, Ace has the ability to equip all 8(though currently 6) powers at the same time. this is done by pushing up or down as well as the respective power key. Here are the default commands for each power. Note that you can change the position of these powers at any time.

Void Double spawns a clone of yourself. He copies all of your attacks, but he stays in his respective spot. Currently, only his weapon attacks have a noticeable impact in battle. Additionally, you can press the power button again to return to the clone. You can use this to reach higher spots through refreshing your air movement(by touching the ground, and Teleport back to clone. Even if you don’t touch the ground again, it will still refresh you aerial powers(Most notably Zen Ascent)

Unleash Blade is a skill that changes based on the weapon you have equipped. Refer to Ace’s Weapons for more details.
