There are thousands of games available to play on the popular platform, Roblox. One of them is Blox Fruits, a game based on the anime series One Piece. Players are supposed to venture from one island to the next in this game while looking for different fruits and weapons to aid in their sailing of the high seas. Update 20 for Blox Fruits, released a few weeks ago, focuses heavily on sea-related content. However, in this guide, we will be discussing a feature that was added back in update 14, which is the Cyborg race in Blox Fruits. So, if you are wondering what this race does in-game, continue reading.
The game currently offers six different race options in total, with the player having a chance to spawn in as four of them, namely Human (62.5% chance), Shark (12.5% chance), Angel (12.5% chance), and Rabbit (12.5% chance). The other two are the ghoul and cyborg, which have to be unlocked manually. This guide covers the requirements to unlock the cyborg race in Blox Fruits, so make sure to keep reading until the end!
What does Cyborg Race do in Blox Fruits? (Update 20)
In order to unlock the Cyborg race, players need to complete the Cyborg puzzle. To do this, players need a Fist of Darkness, a Core Brain, which is acquired from the Order, and 2,500 Fragments. It is quite a long-winded and complex process, so if you feel lost, here is a guide that might help. Once you have successfully obtained the race, you can switch to another race and back without having to go through the whole puzzle. You will have to pay the 2,500 Fragments fee every time you do so, though, so it might be worth taking a look at the advantages and disadvantages of this race mentioned below.
The base version, V1, does not really have much going for it aside from a simple appearance change. When you get to V2 though, you get a 10% defense buff against melee, sword, and gun attacks, along with 15% of received damage passively converted to energy. V3 gives the user an ability called Energy Core, which, when activated, boosts the user’s defense by 30%, along with creating an AoE lightning effect around the user that damages enemies, scaling up the damage with the player’s level. It deals 33 ticks of damage lasting 6.5 seconds, with a 30-second cooldown. It also does Break Instinct unless the player is right on the edge of the AoE.
The changes in V4 vary as per the gears used. Once transformed into a V4 Cyborg, the player receives max stats, increased damage, speed, and healing by 10%. The Energy Control option makes it so that the damage dealt chains to nearby enemies via orbs, also allowing the user to super jump if they have instinct enabled. The upgraded version increases the effects of chain damage, as well as making it so that super jump deals damage and can be used without instinct. The Aftershock option adds an electrifying effect to the user’s attacks that temporarily disables the opponent’s instinct ability. The electrifying effect is stronger and lasts longer after being upgraded.
Unlike the other races, the Cyborg race does not offer any movement buffs whatsoever, which can make you feel slow without using any accessories. Also, while the Energy Core ability unlocked in V3 is quite useful in resisting combos and held moves, players have come up with combos that work around it, avoiding the resistance provided by it entirely. And of course, this race is quite pricey for what it’s worth, requiring the player to complete the cyborg puzzle.
In conclusion, the cyborg race in Blox Fruits seems to offer a pretty decent defense, especially with Energy Core. It also ensures the user will have energy almost constantly, which can be a good pair with Phoenix. If all that sounds appealing enough for you to consider going for this race, you might also want to consider checking out Android Gram for more such content.
