The Tower of Fantasy Cobalt-B SSR simulacrum features in the third limited banner to debut in the Tower of Fantasy 1.5 Artificial Island update. This shrewd gunsmith is notable for building her own Tower of Fantasy weapon, the Flaming Revolver, which can tear through shields at the same pace as King, the long-standing top shieldbreaker in Hotta Studio’s RPG game.
You’ll likely recall encountering Cobalt-B a number of times on your journey across Aida – not only does she provide you with your very first Tower of Fantasy vehicle, she also features in the Aida Cafe event. Now she’s finally available to play, here’s everything you need to know about the so-called mad scientist and her Flaming Revolver.
Tower of Fantasy Cobalt-B simulacrum
Cobalt-B is set to join the Tower of Fantasy simulacra roster from October 6, 2022. Unsurprisingly, the impressive damage output of her Flaming Revolver places her firmly in the ranged DPS role. Despite its name, the Flaming Revolver performs like a rapid-fire shotgun, casting a wide six-shot spread directly ahead of Cobalt-B. Its high crit rate inflicts a devastating burst of damage in a single shot, setting her apart from dual-wielding gun users like Nemesis and Samir.
Cobalt-B also has her very own story mission, which you can access by clicking on the Story tab from the Simulacra menu. The Intelligence story mission can be completed at any time, with any Tower of Fantasy character, and offers some insight into Cobalt-B’s backstory. What’s more, upon completion you will receive 100 Dark Crystals and a coveted Red Nucleus, which can be spent on limited Tower of Fantasy banners to acquire rare characters such as the Claudia simulacrum and, of course, Cobalt-B.

Cobalt-B weapon advancements
Tower of Fantasy weapon advancements serve as consolation prizes for pulling duplicate simulacra from banners. Instead of going entirely to waste, they can be traded in to unlock significant buffs to the relevant weapon. Here are all Cobalt-B weapon advancements:
- 1 star: Each round of attacks deals additional damage equal to 2% of the target’s current HP (cannot exceed 180% of ATK).
- 2 stars: Increase the current weapon’s base attack growth by 16%.
- 3 stars: Heavy Bombardment branch skill and Close Quarters dodge attack inflict Ion Scorch on targets that are already burned, dealing flame damage equal to 40% of attack every second for ten seconds.
- 4 stars: Increase the current weapon’s base attack growth by 32%.
- 5 stars: The damage from Ion Scorch increases to 60% of attack. Successful attacks with any weapon’s dodge skill will refresh the duration of Ion Scorch.
- 6 stars: Barrage inflicts burn for 15 seconds. Successful attacks with any weapon’s dodge skills reduce the cooldown of Barrage by 4 seconds. This effect has a 1.5 second cooldown.
Cobalt-B awakening traits
Awakening traits are tied to the Cobalt-B simulacrum itself, so if you’re tired of using the Wanderer you crafted in the Tower of Fantasy character customisation menu, you can equip Cobalt-B for some additional buffs. However, in order to unlock them by giving Cobalt-B her preferred gifts and accruing a certain number of awakening points. Cobalt-B’s preferred gifts are Metal Items, Saved, and Limited Store Items.
- Lingering Warmth (1,200 points): After Cobalt-B uses her discharge skill, restores a random amount of weapons charge between 50 to 120 points.
- Sparks (4,000 points): After Cobalt-B uses her discharge skill, restores a random amount of weapons charge between 90 to 180 points.
