As soon as you land in the first area, exit your escape pod and start inspecting it. There should be a panel that you can interact with. This removes the panel to reveal the Fuel Array.

Fuel Array Takes Up Equipment Slot

Equipping the Fuel Array will take up your equipment slot. This will prevent you from equipping a new equipment. Take note that you should not allow your health to drop below half as this will cause the Fuel Array to explode!

PaulPaul's Goat HoofRex does not have a skill that allows him to maneuver out of harm's way when he is in a pinch. Increasing his move speed will be helpful in evading incoming fire.
Tougher TimesTougher TimesHaving a chance to block damage will certainly help Rex since his skills use up his HP.
Leeching SeedLeeching SeedHaving the Leeching Seed item will help you instantly regain some of the health that you've lost when using your skills and abilities.
UkeleleUkeleleSince Rex's main attack speed is not very fast, being able to damage multiple targets with your shots is a must!
