Awesomenauts Wiki
Item 5 solar

Solar is the currency of the game, used at the in game shop to purchase upgrades and as a tool to level up the player.

Players start the game with 235 Solar, and can collect more in the Drop Pod.

When the player collects 100 Solar, they will level up. When they die, they lose 30 Solar and will stop generating solar until they land from the Drop Pod. Solar spent in the shop or lost upon death will never cost the player a level, however.

Solar cubes found naturally on every map will respawn after 12 seconds.

Solar will also grant Player Level experience. 10000 EXP is required to level up.

Awesomenauts Silver Solar = 1 Solar

Awesomenauts Gold Solar = 5 Solar
