What is the Power Activator?
Power Activators have a few distinct uses. They:
- Spawn enemies for battle
- Load Smart Figures to bring new characters into the battle
- Can be used as blasters for multiplayer battle
- Transform into various devices and weapons like detonation mines
Missions require at least one Power Activator. Power Activators can be used as firing units in Exploration Mode and multiplayer.
How do I set it up?
Your Repulsor and Power Activator need to be connected the first time you use them.
Power on both your Repulsor and your Power Activator.
The Power Activator will first turn green, then flash blue when connecting to the Repulsor.
J.A.R.V.I.S. will confirm a connection on the Repulsor, and the Power Activator will turn yellow.
If it doesn't connect, make sure both the Repulsor and Power Activator are powered on. You can also try moving closer to the Activator.
If you still can't connect, try powering down the Repulsor and Power Activator, then turning them back on. Also, ensure that you are using a fresh set of batteries in both. Now, place your Power Activator somewhere in a room to get started! You can add more for a greater challenge. If you use more than one Power Activator, don't place them too close together.
Activators spawn different enemies, depending on your mission. In Exploration Mode you can choose which enemy you’d like to face by pressing the gold button to scroll through available enemies. Shoot at the Power Activator to start the battle. Another recruit can even use the activator’s red blast button to play as the spawned enemy!
Watch the different color lights to see what the enemy is doing in battle:
Purple – enemy is unprotected – time to attack!
Red – enemy was hit
Green – enemy is charging up their attack and can't take damage – get ready to dodge, hide, or raise your shield!
White – enemy is attacking
Blue – enemy is shielded – use your Palm Cannon!
Flashing Yellow – Activator is about to explode – time to hide behind something big or run from the room!
Remember, different enemies require different strategies to defeat.
You can place Smart Figures on the Power Activator to bring them into play! Learn more about Smart Figures here.
You can use a second Power Activator as a firing unit in basic multiplayer. In Exploration Mode, spawn the enemy of your choice with the gold button, then use the red button to fire.
