When you first meet Tower of Fantasy’s Cobalt B on your initial visit to Hykros, she comes across as quite the aloof and quiet gal. But, when equipped with her powerful weapon, Flaming Revolver, she proves herself to be a real fiery bright spark, and a threat to anyone in range. Team that with her fierce intellect and skills as a mechanic, and it’s clear that she’s a great asset to any team.
If you want to make the most of Tower of Fantasy Cobalt B’s talents, you’re in the right place. In this ToF Cobalt B build guide, we look at her skills, attacks, advancement, and more. Keep in mind that, as she’s yet to join Tower of Fantasy global, most of the information in this guide is based on the CN version of the game, and will likely change with her global release.
While you’re here, be sure to check out our Tower of Fantasy character guide and Tower of Fantasy tier list to see how all the Simulacra size up. We’ve also got a bunch of builds for other characters, including Tower of Fantasy Claudia, Tower of Fantasy Frigg, and Tower of Fantasy Cocoritter.
Tower of Fantasy Cobalt
Who is Tower of Fantasy’s Cobalt B?
As Cobalt B is still currently a CN version exclusive, we don’t have much information on her yet. We do, however, know that she’s a super smart gal who works for Hykros, and is the one who sets you up with your first pair of wheels, Falcon. In our brief interaction with her during the main story quest, we saw that she’s a bit of a quiet one, seemingly more interested in the tech she works on than any social interactions.
Cobalt B is an SSR Simulacra who wields a fire-imbued gun called Flaming Revolver.
What is Tower of Fantasy Cobalt B’s banner?
Cobalt B made her initial debut in the CN version of Tower of Fantasy back in January 2022 and was actually the second limited Simulacra in the game. She’s yet to come to the global version, and Hotta hasn’t confirmed her release date, but we suspect she’ll join the roster soon. We’ll update this guide as soon as we know more.
What’s the best Tower of Fantasy Cobalt B build?
As we’ve not had the chance to test her out yet, we can’t confirm the best Tower of Fantasy Cobalt B build. However, from what we’ve seen, she’s a strong, ranged DPS with great fire damage application, and AoE and crowd control potential. According to CN players, she falls into the S tier of the Tower of Fantasy tier list, implying that she’s a very valuable unit in their meta, but whether this carries over to the global version remains to be seen.

Tower of Fantasy Cobalt B advancement
You can advance Tower of Fantasy weapons by using their corresponding fusion cores, which you get by collecting more than one copy of a character. After you get your first copy of Cobalt B and her Flaming Revolver, you can purchase another copy through the limited store during her banner for 120 flame gold. Alternatively, you can get a duplicate of Cobalt B by pulling on the banner, but, of course, this is entirely up to RNG.
Advancing your weapons by spending fusion cores and gold unlocks special bonuses. Here are all of the bonuses you gain from unlocking each of Cobalt B’s advancement stars.
- One star: each round of attack deals additional damage equal to 2% of the target’s current HP (cannot exceed 200% of attack)
- Two stars: increases the weapon’s base attack growth by 16%
- Three stars: dodge and charged attacks inflict Ion Scorch on targets that are already burned, dealing flame damage equal to 60% of their current attack every second for ten seconds
- Four stars: increases the weapon’s base attack growth by 32%
- Five stars: increases Ion Scorch’s damage to 90% of attack. Successful attacks with any weapon’s dodge skills refresh the duration of Ion Scorch
- Six stars: your barrage skill inflicts burn for 15 seconds. Successful attacks with any dodge skills reduce the barrage’s cooldown by four seconds. This effect has a 1.5-second cooldown
What’s the best Tower of Fantasy Cobalt B matrix set?
Cobalt B has her own SSR matrices, which are likely to be featured on the limited matrix banner alongside her limited weapon banner. According to the CN version, her set complements her mobile combat style, allowing her to dodge more frequently and increasing her DoT application and damage capabilities. Alternatively, combining two of Samir’s set and two of Crow’s set is a great choice, boosting both her crit and damage per hit.
For an SR substitute, you can go with Sobek’s Swamp Shadow set, which boosts her damage based on how many enemies are in range. Or, if you need an R-rank option while you wait for something better to come along, go with Self-explosive, which gives you a small flame damage boost.
Check out our Tower of Fantasy matrices guide to find out more.
|ToF matrix set||Rarity||Effect|
