Skills

Skills are the primary way to develop your character and gain advantages over your competitors

You can increase some Skills by performing specific actions in-game, as well as via Skill Points. Skill Points may be acquired by leveling-up, and blocks of Skill Points may be purchased via the Black Market. To use your Skill Points, just visit the Skills section on your Profile and tap the “Train” button to select the Skills you want to improve.

Skills that are accumulated from certain actions (e.g. Base Building, Scanning) will improve your ability to perform its associated action. For example, scanning the Map increases your scan range and quantities, increasing your haul per scan. The benefits from a skill increase steadily as you approach Mastery – after that their benefits grow even faster, only stopping when you reach the Maximum skill value.

Once you pass the Mastery level, make sure to maintain the skill’s level by continuing to scan, build bases, etc – otherwise the skill will gradually Depreciate back to the Mastery level.
