Tips

  • Double Tap and Suppressive Fire experience damage falloff. Firing from one edge of the teleporter bubble to the other, you lose about half the damage.
  • Double Tap has the highest potential to proc item effects out of any Primary skill.
  • Phase Round resets the accuracy spread of Double Tap. To maximize long range DPS, Double Tap a bit before using Phase Round to reset the accuracy and Double Tap again.
  • Tactical Dive can be used to avoid falling damage from any height if used before hitting the ground.
  • Tactical Dive into upwards slopes for a huge upwards jump.
  • Suppresive Fire is a perfect tool to stun enemies and cancel their attacks. Alternate between Suppresive Fire and Tactical Dive for maximum survivability.
