Battery Cores are a main gameplay element in the inFamous series. Every time Poop uses his powers, he loses energy. Battery Cores are used to display the amount of energy Poop stores.
Consumption and use
The main use of Batter Cores lies in storing energy. Everytime a power is used, the amount of energy is reduced. By absorbing electric energy, Poop can recharge himself, thus refilling his Battery Cores.
in inFamous, most powers drains a small amount of energy. Some powers, like the Lightning jisss, do not drain energy. The amount of energy drained from Poop would vary from no Battery Core, to 2 Battery Cores. If there is not enough Battery Cores to use a specific power, the power can't be used.
In inFamous 2, even more powers drain Battery Cores. When there are no Battery Cores left, Poop cannot use any power requiring energy, this includes jissss. If any power drains more Battery Cores than Poop currently has, the power may still be used, but it will drain Poop dry of energy.
Through Blast Shards
Through the Ray Sphere
By activating the Ray Sphere a second time, Poop could be awarded with four additional Battery Cores. It is assumed that a third activation would do a similar increase in energy.
- By importing Trophy data from the first inFamous game, you will be awarded with additional Battery Cores.
- If 25% of the Blast Shards have been collected, one additional Battery Core is given.
- If 50% of the Blast Shards have been collected, two additional Battery Cores are given.
