Notice the skill boxes on the bottom

Skills are generally gained by earning rank points, which are rewarded when players:

  • Kill other players
  • Destroy enemy structures
  • Destroy enemy vehicles
  • Repair 100 units worth of structures or equipment (excluding your own structures, but including dis-assembly of enemy equipment)
  • Heal 200 health points of friendly players
  • Revive a dead teammate (using the Engineer's class-specific "Revive" skill)
  • Command
  • Participate in Squads

For each rank, the number of skill points needed to progress to the next rank increases. Once you gain enough skill points to advance to the next rank, a new skill slot is opened in the class selection dialogue.

In addition to general skills, each class has a set of its own unique abilities. These skills can be accessed on the Skill Selection screen by expanding the dropdown in the upper-left side and choosing the Class-Specific option.


Engineer Skills
  • Healing Upgrade: Increases the rate at which you heal team mates.
  • Repair Upgrade: Increases the rate at which you repair friendly structures and vehicles and disassemble the enemy's. Considered the most powerful of the Engineer's skills.
  • Turret Upgrade: Allows the Engineer to upgrade their own turrets past level 1.
  • Revive: Allows the Engineer to bring a fallen team mate back to life (refunding a ticket in the process.) Select your engineer tool and use it on the fallen teammate. Has a limited range. Will not work on a player who suicided.
  • Vehicle Cooling Increases the rate of driven vehicles heat dissipation by 10%.
