Gunvolt is capable of using a variety of equipment throughout his missions, which gives him various abilities. Equipment is split between Weapons, Contact Lenses, Rings, Special Gear, and Pendants. Each one has various conditions for acquisition.

In the second game, equipment now comes with an experience and level system. Wearing equipment through a mission boosts the experience level until it levels up. Leveling equipment comes with various benefits, such as boosting effects or making Prevasion and Air Dashes/Hops cheaper.

Bolts Edit

Bolts change the way Gunvolt fires shots, and in Azure Striker Gunvolt only, his maximum tags.

Name Description Allotted Tags
Cerberus Gunvolt's default bolt. Can fire up to 3 bullets at a time. 3
Naga Acquired by defeating one of six main bosses. Cannot auto-fire, but can be charged to pierce objects and shields. 5
Mizuchi Obtained after defeating three main bosses. A reticle appears in front of GV that can be pointed in 5 directions using controller inputs, allowing the redirection of bolts. Charging moves the reticule further outwards, allowing for trick shots. 1
Technos Obtained after defeating four main bosses. Fires two bullets diagonally up and down. The bullets can travel along the floor and ceiling. Allows auto-fire. 2
Orochi Obtained after defeating all main bosses. When fired, deploys an aerial drone to fire 7 other shots in a sweeping motion. Direction depends on where you fire. 8
Vasuki Obtained after defeating the final boss. Homes in on other targets nearby if it hits its mark. 4
Dullahan Obtained after getting the true ending and completing every Secret Mission. An auto-fire weapon that cannot tag, but fires extremely powerful bullets. Exclusive to Azure Striker Gunvolt. N/A

Subroutines Edit

Subroutines are Copen's method of powering up in lieu of physically swapping out his gear. He can load a varying number of subs based on his equipment's capacity. Copen's subroutines can gain experience over the course of missions. Once they level up, they become "optimized" (represented by an "R" next to their name) and take up 1 less memory. They are also worth double their usual sell-back price.

Be advised, loading too many will still provide the effects, but also add debuffs, or "bugs" to Copen's gear.

List of Possible Bugs Edit

  • Copen deals less damage.
  • Copen takes more damage.
  • HP is reduced to 1.
  • Subroutines have effects disabled.

It's currently unknown if bugs are random or if loading certain equipment can effect which bugs debuff Copen.

With the release of Luminous Avenger iX, the memory space system and therefore bugs and optimization have been removed from the subs system.

Standard Subroutines Edit

These subroutines are all able to be synthesized by default, or require other subroutines to be synthesized first.
