Robot Sizes and Types Edit

In Cosmic Break a player's robots are classified by both size and type which are both determined by the robot's BD (Body) part.

A robot's status affects on the parts, tune-up's. A robot's size affects the size parts the robot can equip. A robot can equip parts up to one size larger or smaller that it's size.

    • Shortest boost gauge.
    • Fastest on ground.
    • Receive 1.4x damage from beam weaponry.

    • Specializes in beam weaponry.
    • Longest boost gauge.
    • Highest jump limit.

Choosing Parts Edit

When choosing parts for your robot it is important to keep in mind the part's stats as well as your robot's type and size. All parts have a size and can only be equipped certain robot types.

Part Stats Edit

  1. Cost
    • All parts, including BD have a set cost. The combined cost of

all its parts cannot exceed its total cost limit. Stronger parts and weapons tend to have a higher cost, which means you may have to make some tough choices to keep within your cost limit. A robot's cost limit may be increased at level up through cost raising cartridges.

  1. HP
    • As with any game, HP is a robot's health. When HP is reduced to 0

from being hit by enemy attacks the robot is "destroyed", albeit not permanently. When you can use a destroyed robot again is dictated by the game mode you are playing.

  1. STR
    • Affects the damage done by melee attacks, and thus is a staple for Land type robots.
    • The damage done by a melee weapon is: (Weapons's Force)* (1 + 0.025 *(STR-10))" rounded
    • A balance of STR and TEC increases the duration of wonder bits
  2. TEC
    • Affects ranged weapon damage, useful for Air and Artillery type robots.
    • The damage done by ranged weapons is: (Weapon's Force) * (1 + 0.016 * (TEC-10))" rounded
    • A balance of STR and TEC increases the duration of wonder bits
  3. WLK
    • Increases Walking/Running speed
    • If this stat is 0 (Zero), the robot will walk/run very slowly

and have a much longer landing recovery time than normal. The landing recovery penalty can be negated with the "Quick Land" cartridge.

  1. FLY
    • Increases Flight Speed
    • If this stat is 0 (Zero), the robot will fly very slowly and

will climb at a slower rate. The rate of climb penalty can be negated with the "Quick Jump" cartridge.

  1. TGH
    • Decreases the effect of continuous damage.
    • Decreases the chance of your robot being stunned by enemy attacks.

Choosing Weapons Edit

When choosing weapons it is important to keep in mind the weapon's cost, but also the weapons type and any status effect it can inflict.

Choosing Wonder BitsEdit

Default BitsEdit

These bits are set as default for the selected robot.


Sword BitsEdit

These include Sword Bit, Slayer Bit, Axesword bit, etc.

  • Good for fighting off attackers or killing a fleeing target who hasn't gotten far yet.
  • Not so great against targets too far away to attack.

Beam BitsEdit

These include Beam Bit, Blaster Bit, Laser Bit, etc.

  • Good for long-range damage, usually aren't good up close.

Spike BitEdit

The Spike Bit creates a spiked ball that circles around the activator.

  • Enables you to more easily defend yourself against close combat.

Dual BitsEdit

Includes Dual Slayer Bit, Dual Machinegun Bit, etc.

  • Simply creates two of the same bit, usually doubling damage.

Support BitsEdit

Includes Mini Repair/Repair Bit, Mini Burst Fire/Burst Fire Bit, etc.

  • Usually exclusive to Support robots, these bits are useful for granting allies useful effects, healing damaged allies, or causing negative

effects on enemies.

  • Generally, the Mini support bits are not especially useful. They usually have a very limited activation time, and sometimes have other

restrictions on their effects(for example, Mini Repair bit can only repair a certain number of bots at a time).

  • Repair Bit's healing speed is doubled when the user is under the influence of an allied Power Spot.

Special ConsiderationsEdit

Special Parts/WeaponsEdit

Some parts, such as joints, cores, and occasionally arm parts, can have embedded weapons or can offer useful effects such as shielding. Keep an eye out for these. Parts with a red background indicate an embedded main weapon, blue backgrounds indicated an embedded sub weapon, half red and half blue backgrounds indicate both an embedded main weapon and sub weapon.

Tune Up SlotsEdit

A part can have slots which allows for the option to upgrade the part via the Cosmo Pot using requisite items. Rarer parts will generally have more slots, certain parts come in multiple variants with differing slot numbers, the names of these parts will be displayed in differing colors. Higher-quality tune-ups have lower rates of failure due to their usage of more/multiple/rare quantities of Tune-Up materials. A failed tune-up will render a slot useless, displayed as a cracked slot icon on the weapon, this can be prevented with the usage of slot protectors prior to a tune-up.

Broken EquipmentEdit

In battle, a robot's HD and AM pieces can be broken if they sustain enough damage. If the HD is broken the robot will lose radar capabilities, if the arms are broken any attached weaponry will become unusable. The parts are automatically fixed upon return to a "safe" zone or by using a "Part Restore" power-up, or by the robot being destroyed and selected later in a PvP battle. The chance of destroying an HD or AM part in battle can be increased by tuning the desired weapon for "Breaker", which increases damage to parts by 25%. There is currently a glitch where if a robot's head is destroyed, the next time the head is restored or the robot respawned, ornaments will not reappear on the robot, if the head is subsequently destroyed, the ornaments will appear the next time the head is restored.
