Pickups

From Star of Providence Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

There are a variety of items that the player can find throughout the Facility. Most commonly, players will find debris, health, weapon ammunition, and bombs. Less frequently, for instance, maximum health upgrades and damage increases can be found.

Various factors play into the frequency and types of pickups the player will find including the possession of certain upgrades and cartridges.

Pickups are contained within floating bubbles that the player can collide with to collect. When the player leaves the room, any items that are left behind will disappear. The exception to this rule are bubbles with a small lock at their base and Reliquary blessings, which will be present in the room after the player returns.

All pickups are unlocked by default, except for several Power Bombs that must be unlocked individually.

Debris

Debris are the currency used to buy goods at shops. The amount of debris dropped by enemies varies and is influenced by the player's current multiplier. Debris can also be obtained by scrapping weapons, picking up certain pickups past their maximum allowed amount, or by obtaining items that turn into debris upon pickup. The amount of debris salvaged by these items is not affected by the player's current multiplier, unlike those dropped by enemies. Instead, the amount salvaged is dependent on the floor the player is present on when collecting the item. Note that Floor 7 is actually counted for all ingame effects that scale by floor as an 8th floor, due to the transitional floor between Floor 6 and it. This in-between floor exists to contain the Monolith fight/Power Eternal conduit, depending on the player's selected difficulty.

Bombs

One-Bomb Pickup
OneBombPickup.png
Two-Bomb Pickup
TwoBombPickup.png

Bombs are used to destroy all bullets on-screen or to blow open walls that lead to shortcuts or secrets. By default, the player starts the game with two rechargeable bombs. When one of these bombs is used, it can be recharged by clearing enemies from three rooms. This recharge period can be reduced to two rooms if the player has the Battery cartridge. The player's rechargeable bomb capacity can also be increased from two to three if they obtain the Extra Pow upgrade. At any point, the player can hold up to six bombs total.

In addition to normal bombs, there are several special Power bombs that produce an additional effect depending on their type, as well as dealing a small amount of damage. Three types are unlocked by default, but most must be unlocked and then purchased from Kleines's shop to appear in runs. Bombs that must be unlocked can be toggled off, but ones that are unlocked by default cannot.

The player's current bombs are displayed in the top-left region of the HUD. Normal bombs are indicated via the color yellow, and each Power bomb has a different color associated with it. When a rechargeable bomb has been used and the player's current bomb count is less than their total rechargeable bomb count, an outline will be left in its place. This icon will gradually fill as the player clears rooms of enemies, until the bomb is recharged. It is possible to have a partially charged bomb be kept after you pick up a bomb that puts you at the rechargeable bomb limit, though it cannot be used in its current state and will not charge further until you have used enough bombs to open up a slot.

On any Lethality above Mild, bombing will reduce the player's multiplier by x1.0 (i.e. x3.0 -> x2.0).

Only applies when playing as Arena Blaster Arena Blaster cannot obtain bombs in any form, instead carrying active items, detailed on that ship's page.

Damage Up

Damage increases are a rare pickup that players can obtain either by purchase, by locating them in secret rooms, or receive upon defeating a boss. The pickup affects both the player's default weapon and any weapons picked up as a bonus additive to that which they already have. As the player obtains more damage, the likelihood of finding these pickups lowers.

Only applies when playing as Skully Skully cannot obtain Damage pickups, though they may increase their damage in other ways.

Crates

Crates can either be found as a reward for clearing a room or within a shortcut. Players can unlock crates by sacrificing some of their weapon's ammo. Each type of crate has a different cost, which is a percentage of the base ammo capacity of the player's current weapon, meaning that max ammo upgrades do not increase crate costs. If the player does not possess a weapon or does not have a weapon with ammo, such as from curses, they will be unable to open the crate. Crates persist when the player leaves the room and are marked on the map by a blue chest icon.

Miscellaneous Items

Icon Description
Map
MapPickup.png
Maps reveal the entire floor, including secrets. They can be found in certain shops or as a reward for defeating the Big Bat.

If the entire floor is revealed, gives a small amount of scrap that scales with the floor. This is less than it can be bought for in almost all circumstances.

Key
KeyPickup.png
Keys only appear if the floor has a Vault generated on it. Keys can be found as a reward for clearing a room, within Weapon Chambers, within Secret Rooms, or for purchase in certain shops. When a key is collected, an icon appears below the player's HP display.

Traveling to the next floor without using the key will result in it being salvaged as debris. The value of the key is dependent on the floor in which it is salvaged.

If a key is found within a weapon chamber, it will be linked to the weapons.

Keyword
KeywordPickup.png
When picked up, if the player possesses a weapon, three to five keywords will appear and the player may choose one. If the player does not currently possess a weapon or has 4 keywords already, the keyword stone will turn to debris. Picking it up in all cases will restore 20% of ammo.
Cartridge
VictorySign.png

Cartridges act similar to upgrades in that they give the player a permanent, normally significant effect upon pickup. They are a fairly rare item but can be found in several different places (Shops, Secret Rooms, Crates, etc), excluding as a reward for clearing a normal room.
Shield
ShieldPickup.png

Picking up a shield will protect the player from a single hit, preserving their multiplier bonus. Hits taken while shielded will still be added onto the player's end-of-run stats page.

As a note, while other player-protecting effects are present, shield will be prioritized and consumed first.

Coffee
CoffeePickup.png

Only applies when playing as Arena Blaster
Picking up a Coffee will increase the player's Active Item charge by 3. This cannot go above their maximum charge.

Weapons

A choice of four weapons.

Weapons, while most commonly found within Weapon Troves, can also be found as Pickups in a variety of locations and scenarios. There are 13 different types of weapons, each with their own unique properties and a variety of possible Keywords. Each weapon type also has a few unique variants that are fairly rare to find, produce special effects, and typically boast improved damage at the cost of a lower total ammo count.

Blessings

Blessings are type of pickup that grants a unique boost in power. Only one can be held at a time. They are found exclusively in Reliquaries.

Name Icon Description Notes
Blessing of Abyss
BlessingOfAbyss.png

"All shortcuts are open to you"

While in combat, shortcuts still need to be opened by bombing. After combat, walls leading to shortcuts will automatically open. Does not open secret rooms.
Blessing of Frost
BlessingOfFrost.png

"Gain a shield now and on every new floor, when broken it chills enemies"

Every shield freezes enemies when broken, including those not granted by the blessing. If the player already has a shield when entering a new floor, the new one is scrapped automatically.
Blessing of Earth
BlessingOfEarth.png

"Shop items have 50% chance to restock"

The item restocked is unrelated to the item bought; it is likely to be different. Works on all shop types except Gambling Halls.
Blessing of Enigma
BlessingOfEnigma.png

"Access forgotten places"

An extra room is added to the current floor and all later floors that give the player a choice between 3 high tier Pickups, which can include Weapons, Cartridges, a special keyword stone with up to 7 options, and more. These are not shown on the map and must be bombed into. Unlike secret rooms, Enigma rooms can sometimes be revealed with the Scanner Upgrade.
Blessing of Flame
BlessingOfFlame.png

"Non-basic weapons deal more damage, but burn through more ammo"

Ammo runs out 50% faster, but weapons that consume ammo deal 25% more damage (additive).
Blessing of Sight
BlessingOfSight.png

"Enemy bullets suffer unfortunate accidents"

Enemy projectiles have an 1/8 chance of not spawning.
Blessing of Storm
BlessingOfStorm.png

"Room clear rewards are doubled, but you can only pick one."

Notably, this has synergy with the Fortune upgrade and Magic Pack cartridge. Magic Pack, when active, produces two identical sets of choices.

Meta-Game Items

Some items found within the depths of the Facility have special purposes that do not necessarily assist the player in their current run.

Seals

After the player has defeated Overlord once, they can begin finding and collecting Seals. When all Seals have been collected, the door leading to Floor 6 will be unlocked, allowing the player to advance their run after defeating Overlord.

Icon Where to Find
