Thanks to a surprise update, Stellar Blade now has an exciting new feature called Boss Rush Challenge Mode.

How to complete Boss Rush Mode in Stellar Blade

Boss Rush Mode is Stellar Blade’s new game mode, which is free with the game’s 1.003 update, and is perfect for players who want to challenge themselves to the absolute limit against the most ruthless Naytibas. To begin with, this mode can be accessed at any time from the Main Menu by clicking on Boss Challenge.

After that, you will be presented with three levels of boss challenges: Story Mode, Normal Modeand Difficult mode. This is consistent with the difficulty choices of the Campaign, so if you decide to fight these bosses on the same difficulty you chose during the story, you won’t be caught off guard in that sense.

While this mode is perceived as a gauntlet of boss challenges, you can actually fight them in any order you want. For example, if you want to start with the final boss of the story and work your way back from there, that’s perfectly fine. Or if you want to start right away with Hard Mode, go for it. The path you want to take to victory is entirely up to you.

Right before starting a battle, you will have to choose what type ‘Preset’ you want These are basically loadout options that indicate what Eve will need to use over the course of the battle, from abilities to gear, consumables, etc. There are four options, and they include:

  • Settings From Last Played Save Slot – Using the skills, upgrades, upgrades and equipment from the last played save slot. Consumables are also provided, in addition to WB Pumps.
  • EVE Preset – Maximum – All skills are available and upgrades are maximized. Optimum equipment is provided along with consumables, except WB Pumps.
  • EVE Tuned – Max (New Game +) – Includes new abilities provided in New Game + along with Mk II kits.
    • Note: This prediction is only available if you have completed New Game + at least once.
  • EVE Preset – Minimum – “Ah, I can’t believe I have to fight in this form…” This prediction only provides the Skin Suit, along with only standard abilities and no upgraded gear or consumables.

After finishing a Boss Rush battle, your stats for that battle will be recorded. These include the preset you chose, difficulty, time spent, perfect parries executed, number of perfect dodges, damage taken and ammo used.

Stellar Blade Boss Rush Mode Tips

While Boss Rush Mode in Stellar Blade seems pretty straightforward, based on our experience with it so far, there are a few important tips to keep in mind before you pick up your blade.

  1. No Time Limit – While other games with similar modes push you to beat challenges in a certain amount of time, Boss Rush Mode has no time limits for any of its boss challenges. You can take as much time as you need in each battle to execute whatever strategy you have in mind.
  2. No WB Pumps – As noted in the Preset menu descriptions, WB Pumps are the one consumable you cannot use in Boss Rush Mode. If you die in battle, there is no respawn and respawn. Instead, the challenge will reset, and you can try again immediately if you wish. Either way, don’t count on having those items available.
  3. No Beta, Burst, or Tachy Gauge Prefilling – As part of the challenge, any battle you attempt in Boss Rush Mode will start with zero power in your Beta, Burst and Tachy gauges. You may want to adjust your usual strategy if it prioritizes using these types of attacks at first.
  4. Your Last Save Slot is the Best Preset – Although there are many Presets to choose from in Boss Rush Mode, and ‘Maximum’ is definitely appealing, the best choice is still definitely your own save slot. This allows you to fully customize your loadout and adapt to the needs of a particular battle. Just remember that if you want to make changes to this prediction, you need to go back to your save file in the Campaign to do so.
  5. Boss Mechanics is the Same – Although this is a different game mode, there is almost no difference in mechanics with any of the boss fights. Even the areas they fight in are exactly the same. Your chosen difficulty is the only thing to worry about, so this means you can carry over your customized boss strategies from the Campaign.

How to get new clothes in Stellar Blade 1.003 update

Of course, it wouldn’t be a true update for Stellar Blade without adding more Nanosuit suits for Eva to collect. Luckily there are a few, and you’ll need to know where and how to find them.

First and foremost, two new Nanosuits will unlock simply for downloading the 1.003 update for Stellar Blade. Called Black Kunoichi and White Kunoichi, they are variants of the same costume and do not require any art materials to be accessible. They are literally free in every sense of the word.

Later, a special Nanosuit outfit for Eve can be unlocked through the Boss Rush Mode. It is called the Neurolink Suit (as seen above), and to get it, you will need successfully complete every boss challenge on Normal Mode or higher.

Remember that this means you must first defeat every boss in the Stellar Blade storyline, including those encountered in every possible ending. Once you have, all those bosses will be available to fight in Boss Rush Mode.

finally, Roxanne has two more outfits available at her black market shop in Xion, and they are by far the most striking. To the point that we can’t help but wonder if this was a subtle jab from Shift Up at Sony for the game’s censorship fiasco. anyway, “Midsummer Red” and “Midsummer Alice” will cost you 10 Vitcoins each at Roxanne’s shop, and they must be created.
