How to Increase Pulse Cells in Lies of P

You can get more Pulse Cells via campaign progression and P-Organ upgrades. Here’s a quick summary:

  • At the start of the game, you’ll only have three Pulse Cells.
  • You’ll gain an extra charge after defeating the Mad Donkey stalker enemy at the bridge leading to Krat City Hall.
  • After taking out the King of Puppets boss in Estella Opera House, you’ll receive yet another charge when you talk to Geppetto.
  • Whenever your Pulse Cells are reduced to zero, you can attack enemies to recharge up to one usage.
  • Interacting with a Stargazer (i.e. bonfire/fast travel point) instantly replenishes your HP and Pulse Cell charges, but enemies will respawn.

I should note that the Pulse Cell discharge mechanic is really refreshing. There were instances when I ran out of Pulse Cells, but I was still able to regain a charge just by attacking foes. That improved my character’s survivability despite the challenges in the game.
