Strategy 

Best Upgrades

Rank 4

For Rank 4 upgrades, if you’re going for recharge speed, you’d worry less about what weapons you’re going to pack with you. That is not the case with  duration. However, this could be circumnavigated by combat fitness’s extra holster (3 and 5)

Rank 5

For Rank 5 upgrades, using Damage & Force might imply compensating (or stacking) for stability and accuracy, and vice-versa. You can easily go around this by researching and buying mods and augments that will compensate for the stats. Apart from that, this is up to the player.

Rank 6

For Rank 6 upgrades, it really depends on which one you prefer. However, it should be noted that on weapons with a fast rate of fire already like the Revenant or Cyclone, that an 80% clip extension is going to be very, very crucial.

Best Soldier Build

Main Article: Best Soldier Build

Turbocharge is important for the soldier build. This skill is important for a soldier build since it keeps you going in battle, negating your need to reload. The skill needs to be paired up with combat fitness and a high-DPS weapon like the revenant or the cyclone.

Important upgrades for turbo charge include:

  • Duration extends the time turbo charge is activated. (Rank 4)
  • Dump heat increases thermal clip size when turbocharge is active. (Rank 6)
