Cog of Battle is a passive item.

Effects[ | ]

  • When reloading, pressing the fire or reload buttons when the indicator passes a certain mark on the reload bar will instantly reload the weapon. The mark on the reload bar is set to be at 2/3 of the length of the reload bar/reload time.
    • This effectively decreases the reload time whenever you hit the mark.
    • This effect also increases the damage of the next magazine by 75% and also increases the accuracy of the next magazine.
    • Missing the mark will lengthen the reload time to normal.
    • While the player is mid-air during a dodge roll, the player can activate the mark's reload only using the "reload" button, but not by using the "fire" button. This is due to the fact that the player normally cannot shoot mid-air during a dodge roll.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Chest High is the Best High - If the player also has Mourning Star, damage is increased by 25% and the Macho Brace effect is activated after flipping a table. This version of the Macho Brace effect is different to the actual item's, as it increases damage by 100% for a brief time rather than Macho Brace's 30%.
    • This effect is triggered at the same time as and stacks with with that of Table Tech Rage, increasing the damage even further.
  • Synergy Ruby Carbine - If the player also has Hegemony Carbine, its projectiles will burn enemies and bounce off walls.
  • In addition to its standard bonuses, Cog of Battle multiplies the Klobbe's damage and knockback by 10 for a random portion of the current magazine. This buff persists even if the player switches away from Klobbe and then switches back.
  • Prior to the Supply Drop Update, Cog of Battle was a D Quality Item item.
  • Switching weapons after hitting the mark removes the bonus.
  • Because it has an infinite magazine size, Blasphemy gains the buff permanently until the player switches weapons.
  • When Gun Queue is in effect active reload is disabled
  • If the fire button is used to successfully active reload then the gun will fire along with the reload. This works well with guns with a 1 bullet magazine.
  • If you have both the Cog of Battle and Blasphemy and you are at maximum health, you are able to swing then double tab reload to have a reload bar pop up. If you succeed in timing the reload blasphemy will gain all the benefits and the benefits will persist even after attacking until you change floors. (Note that this is most likely a glitch.)

Trivia[ | ]

  • This item and its effect are references to Gears of War series.
    • The entire name of the item is just a reformulation of the series title.
  • During earlier stages of development, this item's effect was a gameplay mechanic for every gun. The team later decided to remove this mechanic to make the game less taxing and instead turned it into an item effect.
