A bare bones guide to some pretty strong items combinations, written by a guy that might like this game a bit too much.
Hello, and welcome.
To begin, let me get this out of the way.
This won’t be a super in-depth guide on the Virtual Frontier.
Merely item combinations I found that were incredibly helpful in my runs.
Acquiring these items won’t guarantee victory but they can tip the scales in your favor.
Holo Mic + Holo Cards (Everyone Is Here)
Holo Cards will allow you to summon several assists at once. Holo Mic makes them hurt.
It’s quite fun to see everyone come together to give you a hand.
Once you hit the opponent, summon your Star Call-In to dish out the pain.
Alternatively, summon your Off-Collab and cause total chaos.
- More reliable if you chose a two-bar collab partner.
- The snack Fruity Galaxy will trigger the effect as well.
Butterfly Hair Clip + Zombie Sword (Plot Armor)
The Zombie Sword increases your damage output when you are low on health.
That’s not a condition you can safely maintain, being so close to death.
The Butterfly Hair Clip will give you some time to take advantage of The Zombie Sword if you ever reach that point.
Even if you have both pieces of this set, you shouldn’t try to stay low on HP.
Survival is far more important. If you have healing snacks at the ready, use them.
- The Butterfly Hair Clip only prevents damage, not hitstun.
- Beware of poison and damaging auras. I believe they still cut through the invincibility.
- Don’t think of this pair as a high risk, high reward condition.
Think of it more like a failsafe for when things go awry.
Atlantis’ Bane + Copium (Nanomachines)
Both provide you with some way of powering through your opponent’s attacks.
Atlantis’ Bane makes you immune to hitstun, but not damage.
Copium makes you immune to damage, but not hitstun.
This pair complements each other well since they cover the others’ shortcomings.
Let the opponent attack you (you can’t block anyway) and strike back in the opening they create. Copium consumption is heavily encouraged.
- Don’t be afraid of losing the ability to block. Being able to interrupt the opponent as they’re hitting you will lead to less damage sustained anyway.
- Atlantis’ Bane also works well with other sources of invincibility such as Tokino Soda and The Butterfly Hair Clip.
I chose Copium because you can carry ten at once and activate them at will.
Baby Bottle + Breaddog + Holo Chips (The Holy Trinity)
A personal favorite of mine, and for good reason. Baby Bottle allows you to profit from snacks.
Breaddog gives you some much appreciated healing.
On their own, they are light bonuses at best since snacks run out quickly.
Holo Chips however, stacks to a whopping sixteen. Baby Bottle cancels out the money cost of Holo Chips allowing you to consume them and profit instead.
You will now be able to take full advantage of Breaddog’s healing ability as well.
I’ve acquired enough gold to clear shops with money to spare.
I’ve been able to maintain steady amounts of HP as well.
I cannot stress enough how good this set is.
If you were to take away a single set from this guide, let it be this one.
Consume all the chips at once before stopping by at Reine’s Tea Party.
In an emergency, don’t hesitate to eat as many chips as needed.
- Other large stacks of snacks such as Chaos Cheese and Copium are desirable as well.
While extremely helpful, these items aren’t going to trivialize the game on their own.
You’ll need some skill, good decision making, and luck
Even then, I hope my experiences will help make someone’s runs a little easier.
