Overview Edit

Talents

Each henchman has three pre-defined special actions, called "talents", that they can use during combat missions. Talents are incredibly useful as they provide special abilities such as bombs, healing and buffs throughout all stages of combat.

Unlike weapons and perks, talents cannot be changed; they are hard-coded for each character. Getting the right mix of talents available during combat missions can make a huge difference to your squad's effectiveness.

Enabling Talents Edit

Locked Talent

Talents are automatically enabled as your team levels up:

  • First talent is always available
  • Second talent is enabled at Level 4
  • Third talent is enabled at Level 8

Depending on level, this means you'll have 4, 8 or 12 talents available within a four person combat team.

Talent Recharge Edit

After using a talent, it can't be used again until it recharges:

  • Instant: Talent can be used multiple times in the same turn
  • On kill: Talent recharges after caster kills an enemy
  • None: Talent can only be used once per combat mission
