Spiritfarer is a deeper game than it may appear to be at first, with a variety of abilities, mechanics and such to unlock. One ability in particular can be a challenge to figure out how to get though, and that’s why we’re here to walk you through how to get the Bounce ability in Spiritfarer.
How to Get the Bounce Ability in Spiritfarer
To get the Bounce ability in Spiritfarer, you’ll need to have progressed to you’ve upgraded your ship to its Rock Destroyer form and have at least two Obols in your possession.
While certain towns and areas will be open to you from the get-go, others will be walled off by obstacles you can’t overcome without certain upgrades to your ship. Oxbury, the town located at 233 x, 18 y, that contains the Bounce ability shrine, is one such example of the latter, and can only be reached after upgrading your ship to its fourth tier so you can breach rocky barriers.
To obtain this upgrade, head to Albert’s Shipyard and scroll down to the Ship Improvements tab. The Rock Destroyer upgrade will be the fourth available upgrade in this chain, and requires 1,700 Glims, 10 Aluminum Ingots, eight Marble ore, six Fireglow and two Spirit Flowers.
Most all of these resources can be found in areas past ice barriers, so if you haven’t explored these regions yet, take some time to explore islands, harvest wreckage from ships and otherwise progress quests that may lead you to resource-heavy locales.
How to Use the Bounce Ability in Spiritfarer
As for how you use the Bounce ability in Spiritfarer, it’s fairly intuitive.
Whenever you happen upon a bouncy surface like a stretched tarp or umbrella, you can boost how high you bounce off it by pressing the X button on PlayStation 4, the A button on Xbox One or the B Button on the Nintendo Switch right as it’s launching you up.
Continuing to nail the timing will bounce you higher and higher, allowing you to reach otherwise inaccessible high areas scattered throughout the game’s islands so that you can gain new treasures, unlock new puzzles and meet new Spirits.
