How to get the Penetrator Armor Set in Demon's Souls

To get the Penetrator Armor set in Demon’s Souls, you must first unlock the new secret door. This involves collecting Ceramic Coins in Fractured Mode. Getting enough coins will grant a key to open the door, wherein you’ll be given the full Penetrator Armor set.

Here’s how the process works. First, you need to get 26 Ceramic Coins. These are rare, and they can only be found in the game’s newly-added Fractured Mode. This mode will throw off many longtime fans, since it mirrors everything from the world to the hands you attack and defend with.

To make matters more difficult, you can only get 13 coins per playthrough. That means you’ll need to collect every single coin during your first run as well as a New Game Plus run. If you miss any, you’ll have to start a third run. Be prepared for a grind.

Once you have enough Ceramic Coins, the next step is to pay a visit to Sparkly the Crow. This NPC can be found in the Shrine of Storms. In exchange for the coins, Sparkly will give you the Rusted Key.

With the Rusted Key in hand, return to the Boletarian Palace. The secret door you need to unlock is hidden behind a wall in the place you encountered the prisoner Biorr. Look for a brick wall behind several wooden crates. Strike the wall and the door will be revealed.

Use the Rusted Key to unlock the secret door, then head into the courtyard. There you’ll find a body. Inspect it to receive the Penetrator Armor set. The full set includes grieves, gauntlets, cuirass, and helmet, all with high-level stats. Best of all, wearing it will make you appear just like the Penetrator boss found in area 1-3. Slick.
