GEAR  &  UPGRADES

KNOW WHAT YOU'RE WORKING WITH AND WHAT YOU'RE UP AGAINST

Star Heroes utilize gear to give them specific benefits and advantages over their opponents beyond their ordinary abilities, such as medpacs for healing or biovax for increased weapons and shields.

 

Vessels (Planetary Bases, Space Stations, and Starships) utilize upgrades to give them additional functions beyond their ordinary capacity, such as a repair kit for healing, or a cloak to evade detection.
