While Reverse 1999 might primarily be a character-battling RPG with an extensive time-travel plot, one of its more attractive features is definitely the gacha system where you can summon your characters in the game. Similar to other gacha games like Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail, you can save up currency or purchase it from in-game using real money and roll for a particular character banner.
But, it often happens that luck of the draw is not on your side and you don’t get your desired 6-star even after spending tons of Unilogs in a banner. That’s when the Pity system comes into play. This system makes it so that you get the character you are rolling for, after a certain amount of rerolls.
If you are also curious about summoning Arcanists in Reverse 1999 and want some help figuring out the Pity system in the game, here’s an article dedicated to that topic.

Pity System In Reverse 1999
The Pity system in Reverse 1999 makes it so that after rolling on a banner and spending countless Unilogs without getting your desired character, the game rigs your summons so that you get your character within 30 or so attempts. The Beginner Banner is guaranteed to give you a 6-star within 30 summons, while the standard banner increases the rate for the 6-star drop to 4% after 60 summons.
Hard Pity is a term when the rate for pulling a 6-star character increases by 2.5% after every summon starting from Summon #60 up to 70 where you can guaranteed one 6-star.
Does Pity Carry Over In Reverse 1999?
Yes, Pity does carry over from banners that start at the same time and to future banners of the same type. But the permanent banner called “Amid The Water” has its own individual pity system and does not share with other banners in the game.
While Reverse 1999 differentiates its characters using different rarities, the Pity rate for each rarity on a banner is completely different. The higher the rarity, the lesser will be their Pity percentage in any banner of the game. The Pity rates are as follows:
|Character Rarity||Pity Rate|
Since standard banners share the same Pity rate for all 6-star characters, your favorite Arcanist technically might have a Pity rate of 0.15%. So, it is better to wait for the specific time-limited or Rate-up banner to roll for your pick in the game.
Duplicate characters, as in characters you have already summoned before, are converted into Artifices that unlock Portrays. Portrays are passive Arcanist abilities that can unlock the potential of a character.
