Tetrastar's quantum semiconductors unfortunately had very poor yields. Exospine modules were expensive, so their quantity was limited. However, thanks to its marketing as a luxury item, they were able to build the image of an expansion device that differs from gear modules.

The Final War became a hellish all-out battle, and Mother Sphere requisitioned all the corporate infrastructure of "humanity". Most of the bizarre equipment planned and produced at that time was lost when we were pushed off to the orbit. Things like the Exospine that ignored design philosophy and focused only on improving combat capability.

Official Description

As with the gear module, exospine modules provided innovative features with the launch of improved models. It meant it was reborn as a true AI upgrade device. However, no engineers from Eidos Company or Tetrastar could understand the neural code built into the devices. This was because it wasn't written by humans in the first place.

Chain-Type Exospine

Exospine specialised in improving combo attacks.


  • Increases Attack Power of Combo Attacks Level 2 or higher by 27%.
  • Crit. Damage increases by 23%.
  • Increases Crit. Rate of Combo Attacks Level 4 or higher by 30%.

Official Description

Gear modules provided a successful custom experience, but their performance was limited. As a result, Eidos Company worked with its partner Tetrastar in order to produce low-level APIs and devices for higher-level modding. The motto for development was "Change everything that can be changed".

  • Increases the Area of Effect of Combat Consumables.
  • Combat Consumables deal increased Damage and have a greater Effect upon hitting enemies from behind.

Official Description

During the final war, the lack of supplies forced engineers to gather whatever scraps and broken gears they had to create new gear modules or exospines. Though it seemed foolish to do so, the engineers had no other options out in the field. They simply didn't have time to wait for the new equipment to drop from orbit while they fought swarms of monsters.

  • Unleashes unstable energy when enemies are dealt a Critical Hit. Unstable energy deals chained Damage to nearby enemies.
  • Unstable energy deals more chained Damage.

Official Description

Quantum nerves built into the exospine module can affect an AI's subconscious. It's no exaggeration to say that it's buried deep inside your brain. Allegations of wiretapping, implementing backdoors, and AI manipulation by mega-corporations have all been raised, but the media has surprisingly not shown the slightest interst.

Judgement-Type Exospine

  • Tachy Energy Charge increases by 15%.
  • Tachy Energy consumption decreases by 15%.

The war with Naytibas involved a lot of sacrifices. The appearance of equipment with asymmetrical performance used for suicide missions is said to be proof of this.

Official Description

As humankind's manned Mars development plan was being pursued, adaptation, survival, and coping with extreme environments emerged as a hot topic. The extent to which the body's homeostasis was manipulated through the Exospine and the ability to recover, making people forget about pain, was considered great. The only known side effects were strange body sensations, recovery errors, and some known AI errors.

The deepening economic supremacy of mega companies, centred on value chain monopoly, sparked resistance. People were especially critical of the exospine module, saying it had "verichips". They would say that big companies, such as Eidos Comapny, Tetrastar, and Orca Aerospace Company slyly use and dominate machines to change human lives to fit their tastes.

Suppression-Type Exospine

When it came to the latest Exospine, it became a hot topic after frequent enquiries were filed about defective devices, such as "I can hear the voice of Mother Sphere". It was said that the voice belonged to a very beautiful, slender girl, and whispered a thousand words. This was simply a bug and was soon fixed by an OTA update. Or was it?
