Heavy Weapons

In order to use a heavy weapon a soldier must be equipped with an EXO or WAR Suit.

Weapon Parts

Weapon mods come in 3(?) qualities: Normal, Advanced, and Superior, each offering better results over the previous one. So far,

Weapon mods can be replaced, but cannot be reused, and thus consideration should be taken before immediately modding up a weapon. The continental bonus "Lock and Load" allows you to reuse mods.

Each weapon can field only a limited number of mods; the continent bonus "Armed to the Teeth" gives you one extra mod slot on all weapons.

Mod Effect Basic Advanced Superior
Scope Adds aim bonus +5% +10% +15%
Laser Sight Adds critical chance bonus +5% +10% +15%
Repeater Adds a small chance to instakill +5% +10% +15%
Hair Trigger Adds a chance of free shot +5% +10% +15%
Auto Loader Free reload +1 +2 +3
Expanded Magazine Adds ammo capacity +1 +2 +3
Stock Guarenteed damage on missed shots +1 +2 +3


Weapon part use

Autoloaders are probably best equipped on sharpshooters, as they cannot reload and then fire their sniper rifle; the free reloads bypass this limitation. For a killzone Sharpshooter use an expanded magazine combined with a repeater.

Expanded Magazine likely should go to Grenadiers, especially if you plan to go for the higher tier abilities which use three ammo each shot. Larger magazine makes it more likely you'll have the ammo for it, and it's not as limited as an autoloader. Run n´Gun/Rapid fire Rangers also benefit a lot from expanded magazines.
