- New Gear – Adventurers can pick up a plethora of new weapons, armors, shop items, and rings.
- Trick Weapons – Never before seen Trick Weapons will grant players special powers, but they might come with a price! Twisting Moonlighter’s mechanics in new and inventive ways, these new weapons will punish your enemies, but might just be a little err… tricky at the same time.
