Using Umbra Forma on EquipmentEdit

Select Action at the bottom of the screen, then choose Polarize, which will show all available types of Forma to choose from. Choose Umbra Forma, which will show a layout of the item's mod slots and polarities. Click on a slot to polarize with Umbra polarity. A slot that already has a polarity (either by default or from a prior polarization) can also be changed.

Patch HistoryEdit

Hotfix 27.0.3
  • We've made a change related to the Umbra Forma Blueprint reward. These are an intentional reward drop for Railjack missions in the Veil Proxima region (harder enemies, better rewards)! Wires got crossed to have it drop on Earth, which is not intentional.

Update 24.3
