Each piece has its own stat line, type, rarity, and abilities. While seemingly simple on the surface, Machine Strike is surprisingly complex, and a lot of fun if you like this style of mini-game. Below is a breakdown of every Strike Piece we’ve found in the game so far with details on how to find them, what rarity they are, and the type they belong to.
