Skill Levels and Benefits[edit | edit source]
- Battle Sense Level 1: Issued Binoculars - Level 1 gives you a pair of Binoculars which can be used to reconnoiter enemy positions. Only Covert Ops can use Binoculars to spot Land Mines for their teammates.
- Note: Field Ops players are equipped with Binoculars by default, therefore they earn nothing at this level.
- Battle Sense Level 2: Improved Physical Fitness - The powerful aerobic benefits of prolonged combat activity enable your Stamina bar to recharge at 160% of the normal rate.
- Battle Sense Level 3: Improved Health - As a wily battle-hardened veteran, your combat expertise effectively increases your maximum Health by 15 points.
- Battle Sense Level 4: Trap Awareness - Even if you're not a Covert Ops, you'll be able to sense enemy Land Mines without the aid of Binoculars. Any mines within a certain range will appear as translucent outlines in your field of vision. Unless you're a Covert Ops, you won't be able to spot them for your teammates.
