In this chapter of the Gears Tactics guide, you will learn more about the Support class.
Despite the name, this class is not just for support. It can deal decent damage and fight as good as the other classes. Many of the skills are based on supporting allied units and healing them. The basic ability allows the entire team to heal each time they defeat an enemy. Support has access to 4 development paths:
- Surgeon - unit treatment and support skills
- Combat Medic - team treatment by eliminating enemies
- Paragon - supporting allies and adding action points
- Strategist - multiple offensive skills that reduce cooldown for skills
Personally, I always get the "Empower" skill first. The chosen soldier loses one action point and gives it to another team member, regardless of their position. A very useful skill when you want to help a soldier escape or take advantage of another team member who is in a more convenient position.
