Communications Tech, a.k.a. ComTech
Cert Equipment: Communications Device
Role: Gather and relay information.
Cert Cost: 3 certs
1) Allows you to listen in on un-encoded
local enemy command chats
2) Allows you to Encode OR Scramble local
friendly command chats. You can only encode or scramble at a given
time, not both at once. You take the chance of them hearing your
leader's commands or discovering his location as he chats.
- Encoded chat = You can't read what was
- Scrambled chat = You can't spot location of speaker.
3) Allows you to pinpoint location of enemy
commanders as they broadcast if their chat channels arent
scrambled by a Comtech. However, you cant use comtech cert
abilities if you are the Squad Leader yourself.
4) Allows you to assign targets to automated
turrets one at a time, which will fire on targets until out of range
or target is destroyed. Kinda like calling in artillery.
5) Allows you to view respawn timers for
all squad members so he can tell commanders when they will be available
again. (with the upcoming ability to chat while respawning, this
feature will most likely be retired or shared among the squad).
6) Allows Comtech to remotely view HART timer
wherever he is.
7) Ability to create airstrike waypoints
only seen by commanders and empire pilots no matter the squad they
