–In-game Description

Cronus is the first weapon craftable by players. Cronus has a higher base damage output and faster attack speed compared to Skana.

The end product looks almost identical to the Skana and uses the same attack animations.

Cronus can be sold for File:Creditsicon.png 5,000 and the blueprint can be sold for File:Creditsicon.png 2,500.


This is a Slashing weapon.


  • Early access in the game (first boss).
  • Straight upgrade compared to starting Skana.
  • Good base damage.
  • One 18px polarity mod slot.


  • Low charge damage


The blueprint for Cronus is dropped by Captain Vor, who is located on Tolstoj on planet Mercury, which is a purplish orb that must be picked up manually if it didn't spawn on you. This can easily be overlooked.

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • Use Cronus as a replacement to your Skana, it is easy to craft and is an overall damage boost.


  • The listed firing rate is a speed multiplier for longswords. The real rate is 2.2 hits per second (0.45s to hit once).
  • As of update 7.8 the Cronus Blueprint is only a guaranteed drop the first time Tolstoj is completed and the % chance for it to drop decreases each run afterward. This was put in place to prevent credit farming.
