Stats have always been a part of RPGs, and some characters scale to a specific stat to make them even stronger. Honkai: Star Rail also has several stats, one of which is Speed.

Speed in Honkai: Star Rail is a stat that exists in both your characters and enemies. But what is it about? Let’s find out!

Honkai: Star Rail is a turn-based game, so it’s not surprising for it to have the Speed stat. That said, all characters and enemies have a specific Speed stat before a battle starts.

This is a stat that determines who attacks first. In other words, characters with a high Speed stat will tend to make the move first.

You’ll find this in the upper left corner of the screen when you enter a battle. The character with the highest Speed will be shown at the top.

Besides, it is a number that represents the difference between each character and enemy speed, with the one at the top.

There are times when your enemies have a higher Speed stat than your characters. This will mean you will only get your turn after your enemy finishes, making it a bit disadvantageous for you.

Luckily, there are ways to improve that. One of them is to make your characters faster than your enemies with the help of buffs and debuffs.

A good example of this is to have Astra on your team. Astra is a 4-star support who can increase the Speed of her allies with her Astral Blessing Ultimate.

After using Astra’s Ultimate, you will see that the characters below the enemies previously are now ahead of them.

Finally, if you have enough Speed stacked to a character, there is a chance that you can skip enemies’ turns, making it a one-sided slaughter.
