Gunfire Reborn Wiki

Reincarnation is a Difficulty that can make the game extremely difficult, while also introducing several new mechanics to the game.

Upon completing Nightmare difficulty, the 1st level of Reincarnation will unlock. Completing the 1st level will unlock the 2nd, and so on. There are a total of 8 levels that can be unlocked, each one being harder than the last.

Unlocking the next level can be done by finishing the run in either Duo Fjord or Hyperborean Jokul. However failing the run at any point, even in Hyperborean Jokul, will not unlock the next difficulty.

In Multiplayer, players can join groups on a higher Reincarnation level than they have unlocked. If they complete the run, they will unlock all previous levels and difficulties they do not have, as well as the next one if any.

  • This means that completing a Reincarnation 8 will unlock all difficulties, including Elite and Nightmare.


There are a number of changes compared to other difficulties.

  • Spiritual Remnant will appear at the start of each act. They offer 1 of 3 spiritual blessings that can be purchased with Soul Essence.png Soul Essence?.
  • Phantom Peddler will randomly appear in stages, similar to the Peddler or Craftsman. They offer 3 enhanced weapons and 1 enhanced scroll that can be purchased with Soul Essence.png Soul Essence?.
  • Enemy Health.png Health? and Shields.png Shields?/Armor.png Armor? is even higher, based on the Reincarnation level and act.
  • Enemy damage is even higher, based on the Reincarnation level.
  • Normal enemies have higher chance to drop Soul Essence.png Soul Essence?, based on the Reincarnation level. Elite enemies and bosses are unaffected.
