Steve, The Ridepod. It is a robot made by Cedric, and is a vital part of the game.

It will be very helpful in defeating monsters and bosses through the whole game.

You can also customize it and make it stronger, making it one of the strongest weapons in the game.



GeneralEdit

Steve's first appearance in the game was when Max was being attacked by Flotsam's elephant, Linda. Max's weapons were uneffective on her, and he was in big trouble, when Cedric saved Max with the Ridepod, attacking the elephant. However, when he was almost finishing her, the Ridepod's battery died. They then run away, and head back up to the surface

Right into Cedric's shop, he asked Max to take some Photos, so he could make an Energy Pack, putting the Ridepod to work again.

(After this, Steve will be yours and will be playable almost every time in the game.)

Back to Underground Water Channel, Max had to fight Linda once again, but now with the Ridepod on hand, it should be an easier fight.

After this, Steve will only be obligatory fighting the Flying Battleship on Heim Rada, but still is very helpful in the dungeons and bosses.



The Ridepod is divided in 5 parts: Arms, Cores, Body-Types, Feet, Energy Packs and Miscellaneous Parts.



ArmsEdit

Steve has a wide variety of weapons. There are many varieties, each divided in four levels, the fourth being the strongest.

Below there's the list:

Most of these arms can be made.

You can check the ideas for these weapons in the Inventions page.



Cores & Shield KitsEdit

Differently from weapons or as a monster, while you're riding the Ridepod you earn EXP (Experience) instead of ABS. These can be exchanged with Cedric for Cores, Bodies, Arms, Feet and other parts.

The Core enhances your Armor, making Steve to take less damage from enemy attacks, and your Capacity, letting you to put stronger weapons or better feet and energy packs. This is essencial if you want to make a powerful Ridepod.

The Cores:

  • Core (Armor: */12 | Capacity: 60) (Your first Core in the game) 0 Exp needed
  • Improved Core (Armor: */24 | Capacity: 90) 900 Exp needed
  • Core II (Armor: */36 | Capacity: 120) 1400 Exp needed
  • Core III (Armor: */48 | Capacity: 160) 2000 Exp needed
  • Super Core (Armor: */60 | Capacity: 200) 3500 Exp needed
  • Hyper Core (Armor: */72 | Capacity: 240) 5000 Exp needed
  • Master Grade Core (Armor: */84 | Capacity: 300) 6500 Exp needed



Now for the Shield Kits. Even if you have a good Core, your Ridepod will be weak defensively if you don't attach Shield Kits to it. The Core just lets you to attach more Shield Kits.Just as Cores, Shield Kits can be obtained by trading with Cedric by Exp.



Body-TypesEdit

Such as Cores, Bodies enhances the Armor of the Ridepod. However, some of them can only be made, and not bought.

Shield Kit: Essential: Raise the Ridepod's defense. 600-4036 Exp needed (Per Shield Kit) (21 in total), buy from Cedric.


OtherEdit

Well, that must be almost everything of the Ridepod.

The buttons are almost the same of the weapons, but be aware that:

  • Steve can't jump to avoid attacks;
  • Depending on the weapon you're using (such as Nova Cannon) you won't be able to defend;
  • Depending on the Feet you're using, The Ridepod won't be able to kick rocks and break them.



Some of the Ridepod parts can be also bought in Gundorada Workshop in the future, in G-Parts.
