What is "Reaction"?
on: February 08, 2019, 12:45:49 AM
when i was looking though the faction cards, i noticed that some off them boosted "reaction" and i can't tell if it means some sort of knockback or stun. please advise what it actually means.

Yeah this should be clearly described at some point.

Most likely staggering and staggering is unlimited so it's a very powerful thing that absolutely exceeds just raw DPS. You usually wont see this if the character's weapons do not already stagger a bit.

Hello guys,

I'll post here the general info about reaction, as I explained in the discord server a while ago:

- Reaction is kind of an invisible meter which AI has. When it fills up, the character launches a hit animation, so he stops shooting for a while and then this meter restarts.

- Each weapon causes a different base reaction.

- Players don't react

- Talents which increase reaction make the meter fill faster.

Ah, if that's the case then... Shoot them in the head whenever you can as it does cause a brief stagger/pause on enemies regardless of their health and 'can' set them up for a grapple if you time it right. Definitely, if it's not you doing the grapple.
