Energy Activators are essential items in The First Descendant (TFD) that increase the capacity of your Descendants and weapons. Here’s a simplified guide to help you understand and use them effectively.

What is an Energy Activator?

Purpose: Increases the max capacity for modules on a Descendant or weapon.

Usage: Each Energy Activator is specific to the Descendant or weapon it is used on.

How to Get Energy Activators

  1. Quests: You can earn Energy Activators as rewards from specific quests.
  2. High-Level Content: Higher tier amorphous materials, which can be obtained from high-level defense missions, contain Energy Activators.
  3. Purchase: You can buy Energy Activators in the in-game shop.

Using Energy Activators


Increase the capacity of modules for your Descendants, allowing more powerful setups. The extra capacity makes a big difference, especially if you use it on a Descendant you frequently play. The capacity increase (+20) is the same no matter when you use it, whether at level 1 or level 40.


When used on a weapon, the capacity increase applies only to that specific weapon. Modules are shared between all weapons of the same name, so upgrading one weapon benefits all weapons of the same name.

Tips and Considerations

Best Use: Prioritize using Energy Activators on your main Descendants to maximize their effectiveness.

Cost: While Energy Activators can be purchased, they can be expensive. It’s often better to farm them through in-game activities.

Character Strength: Some characters, like Bunny, have lower health and defense, making the extra capacity from Energy Activators crucial for better survivability.
