Limit break is the process to upgrade a ships's ★s. Ships gain increased stats, better weapon efficiency, and new skills with every limit break.


The detailed changes are specific to each ship, but in general limit breaking provides ships with weapon efficiency upgrades, (such as extra torpedo salvos, extra airstrikes, and additional main gun shelling salvos), unlocks new skills, and increased ship stats. It also increases the ★s of the ship. Ships have a max level of 70 if not limit broken, 80 if limit broken once, 90 if limit broken twice, and 100 if fully limit broken (thrice). From there on out one must use cognitive chips to every 5 levels after that (100, 105, etc) to reach the max level of 120

Limit breaking requires either duplicates of the ship you would like to limit break, or Universal Ships. There are three Universal Ships:

When using Universal Ships, the rarity has to match the ship you are trying to limit break: Universal Bulin for ships with rarity Elite (purple) and below, Prototype Bulin MKII for ships with rarity Super Rare (gold).

Every ship can be limit broken three times, once at level 10, once at level 30 and once at level 70. The first two limit breaks require 1 duplicate ship (or one corresponding Universal Ship) while the level 70 limit break requires two duplicate ships and/or corresponding Universal Ship.

A total of 4 extra ships of the same name or 4 Bulins with the corresponding rarity is required to fully limit break a ship.
