The Retro BluFocals comes with Intensify Action as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Headgear. As a 2-star item, the Retro BluFocals comes with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Naut Couture for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Emberz brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Intensify Action and a lower chance of rolling Special Charge Up to fill its secondary ability slots.



  • Being a headgear from Emberz the Retro BluFocals have a higher chance to get the Intensify Action ability, which is also their primary Ability.
    • This is likely due to a developer oversight as gear is supposed to not have it's Brand's favored ability be it's primary ability.
