To use an incomplete gun, such as the Polar Star, to this degree...

-- Tetsuzou Kamadani

To think such thorough use were possible even before the gun's completion...

-- Tetsuzou Kamadani

The Spur (シュプール Shupūru) is the finished version of the Polar Star. It deals one of the highest amounts of damage with a single shot in Cave Story. The weapon can only be obtained by giving the Polar Star to Tetsuzou Kamadani when Quote returns to Mimiga Village from the Waterway.

The Spur was the gun that the Hermit Gunsmith was originally trying to create, but Quote took the unfinished Polar Star from him while he was asleep.

Location Edit

The Spur can be "obtained" back at the Hermit Gunsmith's abode in the First Cave after Quote returns from the Waterway. When the player talks to the gunsmith, he observes the Polar Star is missing and takes it away upon discovering that Quote is carrying it. The gunsmith suddenly feels moved by the evidence of use with the gun, even before its completion. He apologises to Quote and allows him to keep the gun, after finishing the work on the weapon, which causes the Polar Star to become the Spur.

Behaviour Edit

Unlike other weapons in the game, the Spur has its own charging function, making the weapon immune to damage level-down. Holding down the attack button will charge up the Spur's energy and increase its firepower with each level of charge. Its level 1 form bullet does the same amount of damage as the level 3 Polar Star bullet. Fourteen bullets from the Spur can be onscreen at a time.

It is possible to "upgrade" the Spur by collecting XP. Overtime, if the player collects a total of 300 XP with the Spur, they can perform an instant shot.

Level Behaviour Maximum bullets Damage (HP) XP to level up/MAX
1 Bullets look similar to that of the Polar Star level 3 form 1 4 40
2 A single laser stream 1 Up to 98 60
3 Twin stream of lasers 1 Up to 244 200
Max. Thick laser beam 1 Up to 474 N/A

Trivia Edit

  • If the player returns to the Labyrinth Shop after obtaining the Spur, Chaba gives Quote the Whimsical Star, calling it a "trinket".
  • After obtaining the Spur, the enemy placement of the First Cave changes. Multiple bats and critters cover most of the ground that were not there before, probably for the player to test the Spur. However, the level 3 Blade seems to be the most efficient at killing these.
