Gameplay Tips

  • Enemies will get closer before firing at the player. Cyborg Comrades will close to melee range, while Hounds will not run at a player concealed by smoke, but instead walk (much the same as if the player was equipped with the SH-20 Shield Generator Pack).
  • Illuminate Hunters won't be able to target you through the smoke.
  • The Thunderer Smoke Round can also be used for concealment purposes and does not require ammunition or a Perk slot.


  • Grenade Perks now display correct icons of current grenades when chosen during the mission, this was added in Patch 7.01.
