In Control, Jessie acquires skill points for completing tasks. When you go to a checkpoint, you can choose the skills tab and make improvements, or buy a completely new ability for the heroine. This section of the guide to Control will inform you which abilities are the best and which ones should be unlocked first.
What are the best skills in Control?
The best skills in the game that can be unlocked are Health, Energy and Launch.
- Health. Subsequent improvements increase health which is always useful. The first level gives you +10% health, 2, 3 and 4 give you +20% health, and the last level adds +30% more health. Remember to increase the heroine's life on a regular basis, especially before fights with optional bosses.
- Launch. Definitely the best ability in the game. Its further development greatly raises the launch power which will make the fights easier. Launch 1 gives +25% damage, 2, 3 and 4 give +50% Launch damage, Launch 5 gives +75% damage. This should be the first ability you buy. After that, remember to develop it regularly.
- Energy. Increases the energy bar which allows you to use powers more frequently during combat. Another absolute must-have - remember to develop it regularly. Energy 1 gives +10% energy, Energy 2, 3 and 4 +20%, and Energy +5 gives you + 30% energy.
Other useful skills:
A lot really depends on your playstyle. Developing Shield is a good idea, you can also purchase Launch variations. If you prefer to seize enemies, you can also develop Seize, especially if you have installed weapon mods that speed up enemy seize. Improving levitation is useful during several encounters with bosses or during exploration of the game world.
