Polaris is a gun with three levels. Killing enough enemies with the gun causes it to level up, increasing its damage. However, taking damage decreases the gun's level by 1.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Taking any damage, even while the gun is not equipped, will decrease its level.
  • Taking damage while at level 1 resets any progress made towards the next level.
  • Dropping Polaris will reset its level.
  • Level 2 requires killing 11 enemies of any type, while level 3 requires 20.
  • Polaris's level does not affect its selling price.
  • Prior to the Supply Drop Update, Polaris had 400 maximum ammo.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This gun is a reference to the Polar Star from Cave Story.
    • Cave Story's weapon leveling mechanics are also the inspiration for this weapon's abilities.
    • The "two small tick marks" refers to Quote ("), the main playable character of the game.
