Tactical Information

  • Expendable Anti-Tank's short cooldown allows it to quickly respond to threats on the battlefield.
    • The short cooldown allows the Hellpod to be used to regularly land on enemies.
  • Dropships and Gunships can both be taken out by a single hit to a thruster.
  • Hulks will be destroyed in a single hit to the eye, 2 shots to the body or rear heatsinks.
  • Tanks and Cannon Turrets can be destroyed by 2 shots anywhere on the turret. Hitting the rear vents will not one-shot it.
  • Factory Striders can be destroyed by 2 shots to the eye or 2 to a single undercarriage door.
    • The miniguns can be taken out by 1 shot.
  • Chargers will die in one headshot. A single shot to a leg will strip the armor, making the Charger's leg vulnerable to small arms fire. Hitting them in the side will blow off a large chunk of their armor and make it vulnerable as well, but isn't as effective as breaking their legs and is harder to aim at.
  • Bile Titans will die to 2 headshots to the forehead, and their side armor can be blown off to make them vulnerable to small arms fire.
  • Closes Terminid Bug Holes by shooting them directly, and destroys Automaton Fabricator by shooting through their vents.
