Gear Fragments Notes & Tips

  • Gear Fragments are used for building and upgrading Gear pieces.
  • They are obtained primarily by using a finishing move on armored body parts of humanoid enemies, however you can sometimes find them as treasure.
  • When obtained from a severed body part, you get three components for each destroyed gear piece.  One ruined Arm Gear will get you three Force Regulators, for example.
  • To upgrade a Gear piece to Mk V, X, XV, or XX, you will need the appropriate Nano Core
  • Every NG+ tier (NG+, NG++, etc) will increase the Mk level of the destroyed gear fragments that you find by 5, so you can upgrade a Gear piece past Mk IV without using Nano Cores to upgrade it to Mk V or Mk X first - just build the Gear at Mk VI or whatever level you need instead of building at Mk 1 in the base game and then upgrading once you're in NG+ mode.
