Achievements[edit | edit source]

  • There are no Achievements for the Secret Squad

Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • Cyborg Mechs do not use Pilots. When using a team of three Cyborgs, such as the Secret Squad, the pilot from the previous timeline can't be used and will be lost. Pilots can still be acquired from Time Pods and Perfect Island events but can only sit in reserve or be sold for Reputation. (Pilots in reserve can still be followed to new timelines.)
  • All Cyborg Mechs are essentially immortal as the Cyborg/Pilot is repaired between missions, but it costs 25 XP each time.
  • Cyborg is not only a distinct class of Mech but is also excluded from "Any class" equipment. As such, all equipment that is not a default part of a Cyborg loadout will cost an extra core to use, even if that equipment is normally free.
  • Despite their Vek appearance and their "Vek" skill, they do not suffer any negative consequences from Force Amp. Only enemy Vek will take increased bump and blocking emerging Vek damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cyborg weapons can be freely swapped between Mechs, leading to some amusing results.
