Fans of the original Rivals At War have a lot to look forward to in the futuristic sequel, released earlier this month. We gave the 2084 edition a score of 4 out of 5 in our review earlier today, now here are our top hints and tips for getting ahead in the game.
- Don't forget to add new gear to your soldiers, as these items can give you a powerful edge in combat. To apply a new piece of equipment to a squad member, open up the My Team screen, scroll to the soldier you want to enhance, and then tap on the equipment slots to choose from your available Gear cards.
- Equipment degrades a little bit after each round of combat you participant in. You don't want your equipment to degrade completely, so make sure you repair often, or as your currency allows. Go into the My Team screen, select the appropriate soldier, then tap on the piece of equipment to repair it.
- If the game's systems are a bit too much for you to take in first, you can always make use of the Equip Best button. Select this and the game will choose what it believes to be the best piece of equipment for each soldier you select. Try not to get too dependent on this as it's not perfect - be sure to understand why each item might have been selected for you.
- If you've managed to unlock some Skill cards, you'll be able to apply them to your soldiers. Go to the My Team section of the interface, and look for any soldiers that are shown with a red badge. Tap on an available slot, then choose from your pile of Skill cards to slot one of them in.
