Pink Outfit
This cape is found after meeting with your Drifter friend in the southern region. After finding him for the fourth time, he appears very sick and cannot move. He gives you the coordinates of four square fragments, tells you his tale, and dies. After he dies, you can acquire his cape off of his body.

Start at the Western teleporter, head west

Head southwest from here

Kill the mobs to unlock the south gate

Using your laser rifle, shoot the interruptor across the way. If you cannot completely hit it, hitting the wall causes an explosion that activates the interruptor with splash damage

Purple Outfit
This outfit is found through completing the dash challenge within the dash upgrade shop. It is acquired after making 800 consecutive dashes after purchasing the chain dash upgrade.




After achieving 800 dashes, you will find the outfit here.

The outfit itself affects your energy consumption, which is used for chain dashing and charged attacks. Your energy consumption is halved.

Ochre Outfit
This outfit is acquired in the North, after finding all sixteen stone monoliths. These monoliths are scattered throughout the world, and tell a very interesting history to those who can decipher the language.

To get to the monolith library, follow this path:

Start at the North Teleport, move up and take the western path(do not cross to the bridge or take the teleporter, just move south)

Dash across here

Move South through the woods, follow the steps down

Make your way through the area until your reach the elevator, take it

Keep going until you make it to this elevator, take it



Welcome to the monolith library!

When you have acquired all sixteen monoliths, the Ochre Outfit will be unsealed on this slab! The teleporter to the right will take you back to town.

This outfit affects your health. When you have any piece of this outfit equipped, you will have +1 health on your health bar.

Purple/Black Outfit
This outfit is found in the main town, but in a locked area. To get this outfit, you will need to acquire twelve keys. After that, you'll be able to open the door and find the Arena.


The Arena is found in the Southeast part of town, and is locked behind a 12 key door.

Unlocking the door reveals an elevator. Take it!

Welcome to the Arena. Here you fight a gauntlet of different enemies from each area. If you make it 10 rounds, you beat that part of the arena!


After beating the first four parts, you are brough to the fifth and final arena. This one is a little harder, so be prepared!

Beating all five arenas unlocks the purple/black outfit. Come up here after you're done to claim the outfit!

This outfit has no attribute effect. Instead, every kill you get beheads the monster you're fighting.

8 key door!

This is where you will find the White Outfit!

The White Outfit affects your item interaction speed. This outfit decreases the time it takes to interact with items like health kits and doors.
Green Outfit
This item is found in the Western region, and is found behind the 8-module door. To acquire this outfit you must have the chain dash upgrade. I also recommend bringing health packs and the Ochre outfit, as this puzzle can be a bit unforgiving.


Start at the Western teleport, then move south

There is an 8-module door blocking the way. Collect all modules in the area to unlock it

Past the door, you end up here, move east

The crystal dash challenge is in here

Here is your challenge: You must chain dash throughout this room and make it to the end. The path to the upper left is unlocked once you make it to the end.


This end room is filled with Crystal Spiders and Goblins. Kill them all to unlock the door blocking the way.

This is where you find the Outfit!

This outfit affects your dash. It lowers the time between consecutive chain dashes.

Green outfit’s effect is false. It doesn’t change the dash timings, it changes how quickly your health fills when you use a health pack.

My way to go is:
Sword: Fuchsia or Pink.
Cloak: Purple.
Sprite Companion: Yellow or Ochre.

curiosity i found out: you don't need the whole outfit (robe+cape+droid) to have the effect, thus you can mix by getting one of each outfit and accumulating 3 bonuses at once

Howw do you get through the arrow blocks blocking the way from the zone? :steamsad:

thank you!

@yabi Every set you find comes with a Sprite, cloak, and sword. Every Orange item has the same effect, every Ochre item has the same effect, etc. You cant stack two items from the same color to get twice the effect, but you can equip one item from three different colors to have three different effects.

do different colored swords have different buffs??

One tip for the green outfit is to purposely chain dash into a wall if you think you're gonna mess up. You apparently have i-frames during the get-up animation, and it'll give you a couple seconds to get your bearings and start a new chain dash.

So to get the much needed Ochre for NG+ mode I have to basically complete majority of the game, at which point it's already unnecessarry. 2 HP is too extreme, bosses have to be cleared with no hits at all, so medkits are pretty much useless.

I'll have to boot up the game again to check that. Thanks for the heads up.
