Equipment Availability

  • All infantry classes use Frag Grenades by default, but have access to additional grenade types, unique for each class.
  • Med Kits and Restoration Kits are unlocked for all classes at the same time. Weapons and their attachments are unlocked to all classes that can use them at the same time.
  • Suit Slots, C4 and other explosives need to be unlocked individually for each class.
  • Most of the Implants are shared between classes, but some implants can only be used only by certain classes. Some implants are restricted from MAXes.

Health and Shields

  • Every class except for Infiltrators has 500 shields and 500 health.
  • Infiltrators have 400 shields and 500 health by default, but they can increase shields to 500 by equipping Nano-Armor Cloaking ability.
  • Auxiliary Shield utility item is avialable to every class for free, and it passively increases shields by 50.
  • Carapace Implant will replace whatever shields you have with a second bar of 500 health.

Health doesn’t regenerate by itself, unless you have a Regeneration Implant or a captured Biolab on your current continent.

Shields regenerate automatically:

  • Shield regeneration starts in 6 seconds after you take damage. In 4 seconds for Engineers. 
  • It takes another 6 seconds to fully regenerate shields. This time can be reduced by 2-3 seconds by Advanced Shield Capacitor suit slot.

MAX units have 2000 base health and 80% resistance to bullets, which translates into 10 000 effective health.

To have something to compare to, one magazine from default TR carbine can potentially deal 143 * 40 = 5720 damage.
