If she travels through all the 15 zones of the Island, Silvia gains an additional 5% attack speed and skill amplification. Moreover, the Argentinian biker gains 10/12/14 fuel upon entering a new area.
Radar Gun – Q
Through this skill attack, Silvia launches a radar gunshot to deal damage. She casts this skill in a given direction and gains five fuel for each target hit.

Spare Tire – E
With this skill attack, the Argentinian biker launches her spare tire in a given direction to deal damage. Besides causing damage, this skill is also helpful in knocking enemies airborne for some time. However, opponents need to be within the range of 3 meters for the airborne effect.
Moreover, she also gains fuel for her bike using this skill. For that, enemies need to be outside the range of 3 meters. The cooldown time for this skill is 9-17 seconds. The SP cost is moderate, 50-90.
Shift Gears – R
Silvia rides on her bike and changes her skills using the R button. However, to use the bike, you need to have a certain level of fuel (30); otherwise, you will not be able to cast this skill variation. While she is on her bike, she consumes five fuel points for each second.
Moreover, Silvia cannot use her weapon skill or her Normal attacks while riding a bike. Turning her bike left or right gives Silvia more movement speed, and she gets faster upon each 10-degree turn. The cooldown for this skill is 2-20 seconds. She does not consume any SP level points for skills on her bike and uses only the fuel.

Skill Leveling Order
R> Q> Passive> E> W
In terms of Skill order, we rate the ultimate skill higher than all other skill attacks. It allows you higher movement speed and more variety of skills. Other than the Ultimate skill option, the Radar Gun attack is relatively easier to execute with a lesser cooldown and moderate SP cost compared to her other abilities.
In terms of skills, while riding a bike, the W skill attack is more convenient and has more damage. Of course you can modify the skill order as per your preference; however, keeping different aspects of her skills in mind, we suggest you stick to this order for the following two builds.
Bruiser Amp Elegance Silvia Build
Our first build suggestion for Silvia is more like a bruiser amplification build with an Elegance pistol as the prime weapon. This pistol brings a massive addition to the attack power and vision range of Silvia. Most of the skill attacks of Silvia are powerful with an Elegance pistol.
Besides the pistol, other build items are efficient to increase the Max HP and SP for Silvia. Overall, it is a winning build for different gameplay styles with just four zones to travel.
Items needed for this build are:
- Weapon: Elegance
- Chest: EOD Suit
- Head: Imperial Crown
- Arm: Sheath of Shah Jahan
- Leg: Straitjacket Sneakers
- Accessory: Schrodinger’s Box
Desired route for this build:
Hospital> Pond> Temple> School
This build has a two-weapon build-up. You would be starting your journey from the Hospital zone. The Hospital zone at the start is not that difficult, and the first three zones are connected. However, you would need to be careful in stepping foot outside the Temple zone.
To get to the final zone, you must pass through Avenue, and things can get difficult out there. We would suggest you be aggressive with Silvia once you have the pistol weapon in your hands. And going on the bike for the final zone is always welcoming.
Also, you need to realize the nature of this character. She’s a Tanky character; the Argentinian racer is extremely good at going into different zones and finding items quickly. You need to follow her nature and do not stick around in one zone for long. This way, you will quickly acquire the required build items and build your game strongly.
Electron Blaster Silvia Build
Electron Blaster build is our second choice with Silvia. This build option has all that you will need with Silvia. The weapon itself will add +61 Attack Power, +50% Attack Speed, +25 Extra-Normal Attack Damage, and a little bit of Movement Speed.
Besides the heavy Attack Power and Attack Speed option, this build also enhances the max HP, max SP, and SP regen of Silvia. To sum it up, it is a suitable build with most of the route zones connected. You should try out this build variant and see how it works for you.
Items needed for this build are:
- Weapon: Electron Blaster
- Chest: Rocker’s Jacket
- Head: Imperial Crown
- Arm: Sheath of Shah Jahan
- Leg: Straitjacket Sneakers
- Accessory: Uchiwa
Desired route for this build:
Avenue> Beach> School> Archery Range> Hotel
Avenue will be your starting zone for this build. You will need to go through only the first two zones of the route to acquire the Electron Blaster pistol.
Avenue will be your base zone with a lot of items, especially batteries. Apart from the batteries, the rest of the items found from this build will be a bonus. Keep in mind to use the teleporter to reach the second zone. The Beach zone will be the place where you complete the Electron Blaster and Imperial Crown.
Having the pistol weapon in your hands makes things relatively easier for the last three zones. Try to be fast and collect all the required items hurriedly. Keep the aggressive killing strategies for the final moments of the game. In this way, you will ace other players on the Island.
How to Play Silvia
Silvia will not keep herself quiet for long, that’s for sure! You should not play as a defensive and cautious player and sneak around Lumia Island. Silvia makes her presence felt with her attacking gameplay. The ultra-attacking style will perfectly suit you while controlling Silvia in the game. The following skill guide will help you further regarding the skilled manual of Silvia.
Passive Skill Guide
The passive skill of Silvia is a great tool to gain attack speed, skill amplification and fuel power. This skill proves the benefit of visiting more areas on the Island while controlling this character. Try exploring different places on the Island to gain fuel and stronger attacks and abilities.
Q Skill Guide
Q skill of this character is a ranged skill attack with abilities to heal Silvia and her allies. This skill has a lesser cooldown, moderate SP cost, and a good range of attack. There is no harm in using this skill quite often.
When you are in a duo or solo team, use this skill to heal yourself and your opponents. However, being precise with your target is compulsory. We recommend you to make sure your enemies are under your target and do not let them slip away or dodge the Radar Gun attack.
W Skill Guide
The W-skill attack is a bit difficult to execute. The Finish Line attack requires a precise hand to place the line perfectly over enemies. Try using the W skill of Silvia only when you have experience of playing as Silvia. However, it is relatively easier to use this skill to attack animals rather than against your opponents. Animals generally have lesser mobility than rival characters.
This skill attack slows opponents who pass through the range of this skill. Therefore, you can use other skill attacks over opponents with lesser mobility. The Q skill requires casting accuracy; it would be more productive to use the Q skill after the Finish Line attack.
E Skill Guide
The E skill is an efficient tool to deal damage as well as gain fuel. You can also cause the airborne effect using a spare tire skill attack. Silvia needs a moderate SP level to cast this skill. You can use the spare tire move quite often, as this skill attack has a low cooldown time.
R Skill Guide
Using the R button will allow you to ride a bike with Silvia. Use this skill option only when you have desired fuel level. It is a handy skill option, especially when you have to move different zones quickly. While on the bike, she also changes her Q, W, and E skill attacks.
You can use this skill with an attacking mind-set or as a defensive tactic. This skill is a viable option to catch fleeing enemies or to run away from a dominating opponent. The cooldown for this skill does not matter as you are already on a bike (so there is no need casting it a second time any time soon); however, keep the fuel level above the minimum point for a safe ride.
On Bike Q Skill Guide
The on-bike Q skill is a close-ranged skill attack with decent attack damage. However, you need to make sure your opponents are near you; otherwise, this skill attack would be a waste.
On Bike W Skill Guide
The Front Flip skill attack requires precision in terms of targeting your opponent. Silvia will dive in the direction she is facing; however, you need to fix the targeted spot before casting this skill. This skill attack deals significant damage and knocks enemies airborne for some time.
On Bike E Skill Guide
E-skill attack while riding a bike allows Silvia to charge towards her enemies and deal damage. This skill attack has the maximum attack range; you can deal damage to your opponents even a bit farther from you.
You can use this skill to push back the charging enemies, and it buys you a few seconds to plan the next move. It is a handy skill with an extensive attack range. However, you need to make sure you are casting this skill right into the face of your opponent.
On Bike R Skill Guide
This skill allows Silvia to get off her bike. You can dismount the bike any time you want in the game. However, we would suggest you press the R button only when your opponents are around. You would be able to use the enhanced Normal attack of Silvia within the next 3 seconds.
Weapon Skill Guide
Quickly reload your weapon by using the Moving Reload skill. It is a handy skill for most of the characters with a pistol as their weapon runs out of bullets mid-fight. You can use it while charging towards your opponents or fleeing away in the middle of a fight. This weapon skill is a savior tool for range characters. Use it when you run out of ammo and refill the pistol weapon to kill your opponents.
Teams and Match-ups for Silvia
The Argentinian biker is a fast player with a wide range of skill attacks; she can play well with almost any character. Silvia is a solid solo player, an equally able duo player, and an amazing Squad player. You can have the following characters in her team to win duo and squad games.
As a duo team, you can pair perfectly with Aya or Rozzi. Both of these players are super-fast as Silvia herself. Together with either of these two players, she can form an ultra-attacking duo team with abilities to run into any opponent players.
These two players are attacking by nature and have quick movement speeds. However, players like Chiara, Magnus, and Hart can be a bit tougher to beat; be careful against these.
For squad games, Silvia has more options. She can choose either player with very attacking gameplay and quick reflexes like her or add a few powerful characters with defensive options. For this, Silvia can do well with Aya, Rozzi, and Luke. Or she can add Magnus to her team to provide the attacking and defensive hand.
With these players, you can take on any opponent. Higher movement speeds of these players with Silvia will provide you an early gameplay advantage. Make full use of that factor and kill as many opponents as possible to win squad games.
Silvia’s Strengths and Weaknesses
- Silvia has more skills up her sleeves than other players: Silvia has different abilities while she is on foot or on her bike. This allows for more offensive and defensive options.
- The Argentinian biker has no match in terms of her speed: Silvia is the speed devil of Lumia Island, and her bike adds more speed options for her.
- She only uses a pistol as a weapon: Silvia can only choose a pistol for her builds. It may limit your choice in terms of varying build options.
- Most of the skill attacks of Silvia need precision: You need to be precise and accurate. Silvia’s abilities aren’t point and click, but need accuracy in execution for more damage.
- Skills of this character are not easy to execute: You can’t expect to just hop on Silvia’s bike and start winning. Silvia is a complex character that takes some time to master; you will need to spend some time with this character to win games.
