Charts to display how much strength each weapon and armour piece has in terms of IR beams. Beams decay in strength over distance while armour pieces decay per strength hitting them, the strength of a hit to the suit translates into how many “Spikes” of damage are received.
Each weapon is programmed to output a certain “strength” depending on the distance of its target which is instantly processed and tracked by the suits to count the total “spikes” left on the player and how much damage a shot is worth. ngth each weapon and armour piece has in terms of IR beams. Beams decay in strength over distance while armour pieces decay per strength hitting them, the strength of a hit to the suit translates into how many “Spikes” of damage are received.

|Supanova IR Shotgun||1.5x strength1)||1x strength2)||0x strength3)|

Health points are measured in “Spikes”, all parts of an unarmoured suit will sustain the same amount of spikes if shot by the same strength. Each segment of the suit has an individual spike rating and once exceeded that limb or segment will be unusable unless healed if applicable.
While an arm is listed at 2 spikes this does not mean both arms and the same damage must be done to the other arm to also disable it. When the suit hits its total threshold it will go into KIA mode and you must return to respawn or be revived if applicable. A headshot is instant death with no revive available.
|Segment health||1 spike||2 spikes||3 spikes||4 spikes|
|Total Health||10 spikes|
