Guides Equipment Guide

Equipment is one of the most important things in that can be used to improve your Survivor’s chances of success in battle. They can increase his damage, improve his health, change his attacks, and much more. On top of this, there are several ways you can improve Equipment, from evolution to simple leveling. Find out all you need to know in this Equipment Guide.

What is Equipment

Equipment in are special items that can be given to your Survivor in order to improve them in some way. In total, your Survivor can have 6 pieces of Equipment equipped to them at any one time. However, each piece must be a different type of Equipment. For example, you cannot have 6 Weapons equipped at the same time, though that would be awesome!

Different Types of Equipment

Different Types of Equipment in

In total, there are 6 different types of Equipment that you can equip to your Survivor in Each different type of equipment will have a different set of effects on your Survivor during the battle. The 6 types of Equipment are as follows:

  • Weapon – what you choose here changes your starting attack.
  • Necklace – an offensive item that improves your attacks.
  • Gloves – improves your survivability with HP buffs and other effects.
  • Chests – a defensive item that typically improves your HP.
  • Belt – improves your survivability with HP buffs and other effects.
  • Shoes – typically improve your movement speed and HP.

Equipment Rarity

As with most things in, such as Pets, Survivors, and Tech Parts, Equipment comes in 6 different rarity levels. Rarer items are typically always better as they provide better stat buffs, can have more skills, and can be leveled higher. Below are the different rarity levels currently available for Equipment:

  • Grey – Normal
  • Green – Good
  • Blue – Better
  • Purple – Excellent
  • Purple (1) – Excellent (1)
  • Purple (2) – Excellent (2)
  • Yellow – Epic
  • Yellow (1) – Epic (1)
  • Yellow (2) – Epic (2)
  • Yellow (3) – Epic (3)
  • Red – Legend
  • Red (1) – Legend (1)
  • Red (2) – Legend (2)
  • Red (3) – Legend (3)
  • Red (4) – Legend (4)

It is also worth noting that certain pieces of Equipment are marked as S-tier. S-tier Equipment is far better than regular as they typically have better skills, more skills, and higher base stats. Each type of Equipment has some pieces that are only available in S-tier and these are covered in more detail later on in this Equipment Guide.

Equipment Skills Equipment Skills

As mentioned above, as well as providing your Survivor a base stat increase, each piece of Equipment can also have up to 5 different skills depending on its type and rarity. It is therefore clearly important to ensure you improve the rarity of all the Equipment you give to your Survivor so as to make the most of the skills.

Skill effects are pretty wide-ranging and can be game-changing. Indeed, they can be something as simple as a boost to HP or something pretty incredible such as a free revive after death. In the next section of this Equipment Guide, we cover all the different Equipment available in the game and their respective skills at each rarity level.

How to Improve Equipment

Merging Equipment in

Now you know the basics of Equipment and the different types available, it will also be useful to understand how you can improve them. In the next sections of this Equipment Guide, we cover how to level and merge equipment to ensure they are giving you the biggest buffs possible.

Level Equipment

Equipment is leveled using Equipment Designs and Gold, with the Designs required being the same as the Equipment type you are wanting to level. The higher the level, the greater the cost will be of both these resources. Leveling your equipment increases its base stat. The max level a piece of Equipment can go to is determined by its rarity.

As mentioned in our Beginner Tips, it is also worth noting that you can level down Equipment by clicking on the small red circular arrow button when viewing a piece. This will give you back all the Gold and Equipment Designs you have used when levling it up. Very useful when you get a new piece of Equipment which is much better.

Merge Equipment

To upgrade the rarity of Equipment you must merge your favored piece with other pieces of Equipment you have. The requirement for this will increase as your merge to a higher and higher level of rarity. Increasing the rarity of Equipment will increase its max level, improve its base stat, and can also unlock new Skills. Merge requirements for each rarity are summarized below.

Astral Forge

Once you have obtained one piece of Red Legend Equipment, you will unlock the Astra Forge. This allows you to Forge your Red Equipment to gain additional buffs. To do this you will need to accumulate 4 new Astral Forge materials:

  • Basic Stones
  • Eternity Stones
  • Chaos Stones
  • Destroyer Stones

These are gained by salvaging other pieces of Equipment. They are then consumed along with duplicate Equipment in order to Forge the desired piece. Check out our full Astra Forge Guide for more details on this.

How to Get Equipment

As can be seen above, the requirements for upgrading the rarity of your Equipment are pretty high! As such, you are going to need to find a lot of it to get a Red Legend piece. It’s going to be a long grind, but below are the best places to get Equipment.

  • Daily Shop – you can buy equipment for Gems. Can be an expensive method to use.
  • Army Crate – Will give Normal or Good Equipment and can be opened using keys found during events, by watching ads, or for 80 Gems.
  • EDF Supplied – A step up on the Army Crate, this can contain Good, Better, or Excellent Equipment. An Excellent piece is guaranteed after 10 opens. To open this you’ll need keys which can be found during events.
  • S Grade Supplies – Best chest in the game that can include Good, Better, Excellent, or S-tier Excellent Equipment. This costs Gems to open at a rate of 300 Gems for 1 open or 2,680 Gems for 10 opens. Always save for 10!
  • Patrol – Each time you Patrol, there is a small chance you will find a low-rarity piece of Equipment.
  • Events – Many of the Events are very generous and this is a great place to pick up some rare Equipment. Keep an eye out on what’s coming!

How to Get Equipment Designs

Equipment Designs are another valuable item you will need plenty of to level up your Equipment. It can be found in a lot of places but you will quickly find you never have enough of it once you start hitting the higher Equipment levels. Some of the best places to find Equipment Designs are summarized in the list below.

  • Daily Shop – Equipment Designs can be bought here every day for Gold.
  • Patrol – Each time you Patrol, there is a high chance that you will find some Equipment Designs.
  • Events – Many of the Events are very generous and this is a great place to pick up some Equipment Designs. Keep an eye out for what’s coming!
  • Gameplay – Just by playing Chapters, challenges, etc, you are highly likely to get some Equipment Designs as a reward.
