Utility Items: First look at 5 useful powerups!
We’ve got exciting new reports from the R&D labs at the H.S.A. The first five Utility Item prototypes are being developed for use by Jumpers across the galaxy!
Utility Items are purchasable from the S.T.O.R.E., and are essentially powerups for your Jumpers! You can only have one Utility Item at a time, and some items have passive abilities, while others must be activated and then go on a cool-down timer.
Our first five items include:
- Damage Deflector Overshield
- Rejuvenation Field Beacon
- Jetpack Fuel Reconverter
- Deployable Auto-Turret
- Grenadier Bandolier
Damage Deflector Overshield
The Damage Deflector Overshield adds an additional layer of protection to your jumpers! This overshield deflects damage for as long as it has charge, and when the charge is reduced to zero, it shatters. If you’re able to remain out of combat for long enough, the shield will recharge.
