A flare with a parachute fired from a main gun.
During night battles, it illuminates the vicinity of the enemy fleet and supports the night attacks of the allied fleet (it also slightly suppresses the occurrence of nighttime special attacks by the enemy fleet).


FlareIcon.png Star Shells are used to trigger a special Night Battle mechanic when equipped, playing a special animation and applying the following effects:

  • Attack accuracy and cut-in rates of the fleet are increased.
  • Cut-in rates of the enemy fleet are decreased.

The activation rate is 70% on ships with 5 or more HP, 0% otherwise.

  • Multiple ships equipped with star shells do not have stacking effects.
  • There is no side effect, unlike Searchlights.
