  1. Best way to use these things is not to even bother because they will get you killed with long animation and the effect that does absolutely nothing but slow you the fuck down

  2. Was wondering how these things work also.
    It sounds like they should extend your life support in more hazardous conditions, so I tried to use some for the Level 3 radiation on Eos, but they made sweet FA difference and I died just as quickly. I literally had to run 50 metres into a radiation zone to scan something, (and the last scan for that mission too).

  3. Okay, so… Nothing I didn’t already know. What I was looking for was HOW to USE it! I found myself in a battle on frozen Voeld and after a second advance of Kett (Oh goody, look, they’re dropping of MORE jerks to shoot at us!) SAM advises me to seek shelter since I’m about to die from hypothermia, or something along those lines. I thought ahead and bought a plethora ( Jefe, what is a plethora? Jefe: Why, El Guapo?
    El Guapo: Well, you told me I have a plethora. And I just would like to know if you know what a plethora is. I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora. Jefe: Forgive me, El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education. But could it be that once again, you are angry at something else, and are looking to take it out on me?) of backup life support consumables and had them chosen as my second operational consumables, next to incendiary ammo, but when I went to my weapons wheel and “choose” it, nothing seemed to happen. I was still at close, nay, closer risk now, to dying from freezing temperatures and my expensive purchase of 13 GD backup life support consumables seems to have been a waste. I’ve been to will, they’re bullshivy, hardly any info at ALL, let alone what I’m looking for, so I looked to Game Faqs, but it’s a message board, so unless someone else had brought it up it’s not going to be in there, guess I’m the only one who doesn’t know what the hell I’m doing so far at level 26! So… Basically I’m asking, what the hell am I supposed to do to make the darn thing work? Is there an ancient chant I’m supposed to say while doing some sort of rain dance or something? I’m out of ideas. I got in my glorified dune buggy and took off for the closest forward station, tail tucked firmly betwixt my legs as I went. ?
