What are Exospines in Stellar Blade?

The growth of Eve in Stellar Blade is largely tied down to finding upgrade resources to further enhance her toolset, such as her sword, rechargeable tumbler uses, and health. Exospines serve another purpose in augmenting a certain playstyle. They can provide various buffs and bonuses to things like stealth, defense, attack, or even parrying windows.

At the start, players will only be able to equip one Exospine, and towards the back half of the game, Lily, the engineer, will help Eve unlock more of her prowess by allowing for a second Exospine to be added into the mix. This way, you will be able to find a synergy between the two equipped Exospines and make the fight against the Naytiba go even smoother.

In addition, Exospines can be upgraded twice, unlocking more perks that make it more efficient in what it does. Make sure to save all those Nano Elements found in the world to do just that.
