Honkai: Star Rail Firefly Gameplay Shows How She’ll Fight

Editor’s Note: There will be spoilers for the 2.0 Penacony Honkai: Star Rail storyline and Firefly in the Keeping Up with Star Rail gameplay video and article before.

As confirmed by the events in Penacony and the latest story trailer, Firefly is actually the Stellaron Hunter SAM. SAM is a suit she wears when in combat. This transformation is shown in-game. When walking around areas, people will see Firefly. In-battle, she’ll fight inside the SAM suit. 

The video begins by showing the Skill Order: Aerial Bombardment. Firefly sacrifices health to increase energy, advance her next action, and deal damage to one enemy. So she gets a buff and attacks. Her Chrysalid Pyronexus Talent makes her take less damage when her HP is lower, can cause regeneration, and removes debuffs when health is restored. The Ultimate Fyrefly Type-IV: Complete Combustion sends her into Complete Combustion mode. This lets her attack again and enhances her attack and skill. Her basic attack deals more damage and heals her. The Enhanced Skill applies Fire weakness to all enemies, restores her health, while dealing Fire damage to one enemy and those adjacent to it. 

Here’s the full gameplay video showing Firefly and SAM in Honkai: Star Rail.

Firefly’s signature Light Cone was also revealed. It is called Metamorphosis, and any Destruction character can use it. In addition to increasing the Break Effect of its wearer by 60%, it also causes a Routed debuff to be applied to attacked enemies to increase the amount of break damage they take and decrease their speed. It is only available in limited-time banners.

Honkai: Star Rail is available on the PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and Firefly (and SAM) will be playable in the 2.3 update on June 19, 2024.
