The Genopets team is currently rolling out customization features that impact more than how cool your Genopet looks. These features will prepare your Genopet for everything to come — like battle and open-world exploration.

Want your Genopet to be a BEAST in Battle when it rolls out? There are two things you need to do:

  1. Level Up — which also has the added benefit of a higher energy-to-step conversion ratio
  2. Collect a horde of Augments

Why are these two things so important? Your Genopet’s level and Augments directly affect their rarity and battle stats.

Here’s How It Works

Every Genopet has base stats — Attack, Defense, Speed, & HP — tied to their specific head and body. Every time they level up, those base stats increase.

Augments act as multipliers for a Genopet’s base stats. This means the augments you equip affect your Genopet’s looks, strength, and fighting style. Each Augment also comes with an attack, buff, or hack — allowing you to customize your play style. The more augments you have in your arsenal, the more options you have to tailor your strategy.

Will your Genopet be a brawler? Will it be evasive? Or will it make your opponent go haywire with a clever hack? It’s up to you and the augments you outfit them with.

So level up your pet and equip them with augments to become the ultimate competitor.

And one more thing, the more rare an augment is, the more powerful the multiplier. You’ll want to be on the hunt for Uncommon and Rare Augments. They will be far easier to craft and buy than Legendary or Mythic Augments and still significantly more powerful than Common Augments. Depending on how you equip your Genopet, your stats may be better than a Genopet outfitted with a Legendary Augment. It’s all in how you combine the possibilities.

More about Augments

At this point, you know that you need to stock up on Augments, but some of you may be wondering, “What are Augments?”

Augments are swappable Genopet body parts, which can be equipped to customize a pet’s visual appearance and in-game attributes. They include Antennas, Horns, Ears, Eyes, Manes, Wings, and Tails.

For clarity, the only parts of a Genopet that cannot be changed after hatching are the head and body

All Augments evolve with your Genopet and will grow in size and intricacy with each stage they reach. Some Genopets hatch with all 7 augments, while others may not. Do not fear, even if your Genopet was born without a specific augment, you will still be able to equip them with one later. For example, if your Genopet was born without wings, you will be able to craft a wing Augment or buy one off Magic Eden to outfit them.

In order to craft an Augment, you’ll need a Recipe, a Reagent, and a specific combination of GENE and Crystals. To learn more about crafting Augments, check out Alkali’s Crafting Notebook.
