Upgrades on the Go – Mobile Buy Station
In addition to stationary Buy Stations, squads can also spend Cash at a mobile Buy Station located on either side of the truck below the end of the flatbed. This mobile station differs from a regular Buy Station in that it mostly offers upgrades for the vehicle, specifically:
· Armor Upgrade – Increases the amount of armor for the truck, allowing it to sustain more damage before it is inoperable.
· Trophy Upgrade – A Trophy System is added to the vehicle. This system can intercept enemy rockets and equipment pieces. Upon purchase, a small counter will appear next to its icon on the HUD showing how many more projectiles it can intercept before it is destroyed.
· UAV Upgrade – A radar sensor is added to the vehicle. This radar will reveal enemy positions nearby if they don’t have Ghost equipped, similar to a Personal Radar in Multiplayer.
· Turret Upgrade – Improvements to the truck’s turret, increasing its overall damage-per-second capabilities.
Each purchase will result in a physical change to a vehicle, as well as a small icon that appears below the truck’s armor bar on the HUD. Munitions Boxes and Armor Boxes can also be bought from this mobile station.
Of course, when the truck explodes, so does the mobile Buy Station, but a truck can still be repaired before it reaches that point of no return.
