How to Get the Most Out of the Medic:
Written by Bhuark

How to get the most out of the medic class abilities, both as a Medic, 
and having a medic on your team.

This is for being a medic, or playing with a medic. If you don't have a 
medic, disregard and go back to your regularly scheduled medkit rotation.

If you're playing with a Medic, or want to play effectively as a medic, 
read on...

The Medic's (I'm not saying Doc) Trauma Station (the remote healer) can only 
heal 3000 hp of health before it goes offline. It gets recharged by picking 
up medkits in the field. How can this be optimized?

Don't fully heal. Get just a hair short of full health, then let the Medic 
heal you with his/her medkit. They ( they medic ) pick up another medkit, 
recharge their trauma station and heal the next teammate. This way, a medic 
can get recharged trauma station for spot healing and the other teammates 
get to keep their own starting medkits for emergencies.

TLDR: Don't fully heal, let your medic use the spare kits on you.
Keep the Trauma Station charged.

How to Disable Vignette:
Written by Zach Fett

-=Step 1=-
Vignette darkens the edges of your screen, no matter where youíre looking. 
In my opinion itís very annoying, so I found a way to disable it.

* First, make sure the game isnít running.
* Open File Explorer and paste the following line into the address bar:


If for some reason you cannot figure out how to do this, 
just follow this folder structure:
x:\Users\YOUR USERNAME\AppData\Local\Endeavor\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor

-=Step 2=-
You should see an "Engine.ini"

Open it with the text editor of your choice (Notepad/Notepad++/etc.)

Add the following lines to the bottom of the file:


Save the file, start the game back up, and enjoy being able to actually 
see around you without artificial darkness!

Guide to Extreme Phalanxing:
Written by MechaTails

Just like your beloved Shield, this guide covers a few essential bits 
of the Phalanx.

-=Nobody Likes You and Youíre Going to Die Alone=-
Dear Phalanx player, Youíll never be respected. At worst youíre an obstacle 
your team will shoot through so they can spam abilities and kill things 
faster. At best youíre like a pet turtle they keep around and feed now and 
then only because youíre a lousy gift from grandma they canít throw away, 
and will probably get fined if they try to flush you down the toilet.

While there are some missions where the Phalanxís abilities can be effective, 
the other classes can usually out-perform it anyway.

The Phalanx likes to get in close and bash faces, but in this game thatís 
the worst place to be.

There is a Parry system, but multiplayer lag ruins the timing and makes it 
useless. Special attacks, like Xeno pounces, grabs and acid spit, canít be 
parried anyway. Often claws and tails will come at you from weird angles and 
around the Shield, or even clip through the Shield and hit you anyway. Bullets 
will find a way into your spleen somehow. The Shield is your best tool, but 
can also be the least reliable.

The team doesnít like you. The gameís mechanics donít like you. Sometimes, 
even your Shield doesnít like you.

But thatís alright, because you didnít come to this guide to be loved, you 
came here because you want to raise a g ruckus and give the universe a 
flaming kick in its black hole.

And with your help, maybe weíll do just that.

-=Shield Up!=-
Are you still with us, Marine? Outstanding!

In an attempt to squeeze some fun out of this game, I started maining a Melee 
Phalanx. Intense missions have started to get boring now that I have more 
experience with this class, so I moved up to Extreme.

I donít have friends to practice with so I have to do quickplay Extreme 
missions and learn things the hard way (much to the chagrin of everyone).

Whatever build you cobble together, these notes are useful to keep in mind 
for all Phalanx players, some for all classes, even.

* Because almost no one uses this class, donít expect others to know what 
youíre doing. Mics are recommended so you can coolly explain to the team why 
youíre charging at the Crusher instead of running away screaming like they 

* While you can be aggressive and a little careless in Intense, in Extreme 
you need to know where your team is at all times and where the enemies spawn. 
This is so you wonít get enemies spawning behind you and so you can stay out 
of your teamís line of fire. You shouldnít be losing a chunk of health every 
skirmish, at that point go practice some more in Standard before you jump 
into quickplay and ruin some poor random teamís run.

* If you want to be out in front all the time, tell your team to prioritize 
the enemies trying to get around your Shield. Instinctually theyíll want to 
shoot into the middle of a mass of enemies, which sucks for your chiseled butt.

* Try to find defensible spots where you wonít get in the way. Even though 
door-holding is a popular tactic, and you can likely hold a narrow door all 
by yourself, it may annoy your team. They arenít used to this big bulky turtle 
getting in the way all the time and, in their eyes, hogging all the glory (and 
possibly interfering with their builds/damage potential).

* Poppersí explosions donít seem to damage Phalanx with the Shield up (at least 
on Intense), so feel free to tank those spicy nuggets. (It may be a Perk causing 
this, I need to check.)

* Donít Shield Bash if youíre being attacked by multiple enemies, it exposes 
you. Use the bash when youíre sure you wonít get sniped or clawed at that moment. 
Learn the enemy attack patterns. Runners have like a 3-hit combo to wait through, 
Husks have a weird delay in their attacks that can throw you off, etc.

* Even though thereís a Parry system (melee at the right time and you will 
avoid an incoming melee attack, as well as deal some damage), itís useless once 
lag is introduced because you canít time it properly. Plus, you canít Parry some 
special attacks anyway, like a Xenoís grab or pounce.

* A poor, laggy connection to the host will get you killed. Try to keep your 
back and sides covered by walls and your team at all times so if thereís a lag 
spike thereís a better chance youíll survive it.

* Synth shooters can still totally murder your meatflaps if youíre in a bad 
position. Watch your sides, if one or two outflank your Shieldís protection you 
can easily get rekt.

* Some actions will forcefully unequip your Shield! For example, diving, 
grabbing from an ammo box, or using some consumables will unequip it, so remember 
to immediately deploy it again. Some actions will briefly move your Shield to 
the sides, like Shield Bashing or stepping up to a higher ledge, leaving you 
briefly unprotected.

* Reloading your weapon wonít drop the Shield, however reloading it with consumable 
Special Ammo will. I guess you keep that ammo in your tight pants pocket that 
requires 2 hands to fish anything out.

* Consider buffing your sidearm (via Perks). The weapons I normally use run out 
of ammo real fast in Extreme, so I find myself using the sidearm a lot when I 
canít get closer to an enemy. Also, you may want to let your team do most of the 
damage anyway, and you act as a mobile wall/turret for them. Aggro the weaker 
enemies and let them handle the tougher ones.

-=Guns Out!=-
If youíre wanting to play in Extreme+, odds are your friends have already told 
you what meta gear to take. I donít know what that currently is though since I 
only use what I like and fits my melee build.

Phalanx gets CQW and Hand Gun slots, so you can try equipping something powerful 
for close range/tough enemies and something longer range to chip at targets as 
they get closer.

* Hand Gun Slot
In the Hand Gun slot I like the Type 78 Burst Pistol with Slow Muzzle, Hollow 
Points Mag, and Illuminated Scope. Recently Hollow Points got buffed to inflict 
more stacks of Bleed, making it fun to use in Intense andÖwhatever in Extreme 
(Also, disappointingly, using two different guns with Hollow Points installed 
doesnít double the Hollow Points stacks.).

You might switch to something like the Frontier Revolver or Little Bear instead 
if you want to actually do some damage.

* CQW Slot
One of the Flamethrowers goes in my CQW slot because flamethrowers have the unique 
trait of being both hot and cool. (rimshot) Also, they have a +50% Melee Damage 
Barrel and a Magazine that can cause ďfire puddlesĒ on kill, so I can cook 
remaining Xenos as I stall them with the Shield.

If pissing off your team with flaming shenanigans isnít your thing, try a shotgun 
for damage, or one of the SMGs to quickly spread slow, bleed, stumble, whatever.

I like the Flechette SMG with Hollow Points mag, +10% Damage scope, and one of the 
+Weak Point Damage muzzles (itís hard to miss up close). Pair it with Perks that 
give bonus damage, like Take a Stand, Shield Bash, Down and Out, Shell Shock, etc. 
and let it rip.

The N79 EVA Laser gets an honorable mention because it does okay damage, has 
unlimited ammo, and will prevent you from equipping or using the Shield while 
itís overheated for no good reason at all. (Seriously, this game hates you.)

-=Butt Heads! (Melee Phalanx Isnít for Everyone)=-
Melee Phalanx is the most fun, and worst idea, for a build in this game. The 
problem is that even though you find it fun, 99% of others will think youíre dumb 
for using it. The disdain isnít completely out of line though, the game is stacked 
against melee players so having you on the team is a major risk.

If you have a team that wants to earn the Extreme+ skins, theyíre gonna be cranky 
if the team wipes 30 minutes into a mission because you were out there having fun 
punching Xenos in the ganglia instead of camping a doorway like a good little
