Finally! :D

But flashes with Gate Shield Diffusor? I didn't see that coming, does that mean we can use flashes to break trough SCU shields and overload it? That would be a whole new factor when attacking bases like Cross Roads Watchtower or The Crown :o

i don't think you can pass scu shield with gsd, but pushing for amp station with squad of cloaked gsd flashes and hacking terminals inside to get sundies sounds interesting.

  • and the dudes
Confirmed: not possible. Tried scu shield yesterday. Also it fills the cloaking slot.
I am here to pull Maxes and play tactical, and I am all out of Nanites.
