But many players are confused about setting up the support character in the first place. Not to worry, this guide has got you all covered.

So, here’s how you can set a Support Character in Honkai Star Rail:

  • Firstly, press the Esc button to head to the Main Menu. If you are on mobile, you can find this menu on the right side of the screen.
  • From there, navigate to the white box with three horizontal dots inside it. You can find this button opposite to your character name.

  • Hit or tap on the Support character section to remove or change the Support.
  • You can find all of your available supports on the left pane.

  • Every Support character offers a total of 60,000 Credits that you can claim.

This resets once you have claimed the 60,000 Credits. Since Credits are one of the main currencies, you can use them to power up Light cones and buy other upgrades. You will keep on getting the Credit rewards if you are using the selected Support character in a battle. In addition to that, your borrowed supports also provide different bonuses and rewards.
