A Closer Look At EGO Powers In Defiance And How They Affect Your Playstyle!
In this post we’ll not only look at the four main EGO powers, but more importantly, how they’ll change your playstyle. You can also read our other EGO Powers post for an introduction to all four.
The first EGO power is Decoy.
This power will send out a mirror image of you. You can also swap places with the mirror image once per use. This EGO power will attract the enemy and allow you to take some free shots.
Decoy is useful for getting aggro off yourself, but can be very handy in a team as well. You can also use Decoy to get aggro off of your party members as well. You can also use it to warp, by swapping place with the Decoy if you want to get out of a tight spot.
Decoy will help you if you are not too good at the shooter aspect of the game as it will take the attention away from you while you practice your shooting skills.
Good for beginners to the game.
Next up we are going to look at Cloak.
If you want to play as a Sniper than the Cloak EGO power will be the power for you. It will surround you in a cloak so you are nearly invisible. You’ll also get increased damage while cloaked with the perks that you add on to this.
It’s more of a defensive skill, but if you add the perks that trigger effects on critical hits, you can make this into quite an offensive ability as well.
If you are going for a Sniper playstyle grab Cloak.
The third EGO power is Blur.
This power is if you want to close distances fast. Maybe you prefer melee attacks or maybe you prefer blasting with the shotgun up close. Either way if you like close range work this EGO power is for you.
The perks that you get for this EGO power seem to center around increasing speed and melee damage.
If you are going for a Shotgun build then pick up Blur as that should help you a lot.
The final EGO power is Overcharge.
This power will increase your damage as well as reload your weapon. If you’re going for pure damage then this is the power for you. You can use this EGO power with weapons that have a high reload rate like SMG’s or LMG’s as you will reload as soon as active. You can also get a perk with this power that will reload your secondary weapon which is very handy to know and is always ready to use.
Awesome for power and really overpowered early in the game.
If you are going for damage, then this is the EGO power for you.
Remember to try and pick your EGO powers to the way you want to play and also to look at the perks next to them.
