    Welcome to the Comprehensive FireFall Guide v0.400!

    Note that this is all information taken while the game is/was still in alpha. This means all the information could be subject to change. Most of this information is also without taking into account the possible customizations for the different battleframes, weapons, altfire modules, ...

    Every chapter has a small shortcut that makes searching this entire post quite easy and simple to use, just search for these letter combinations for the corresponding chapter!

    Alright, off to bed for now, will start editing tomorrow again when I'm home from my classes. That is if you guys can manage not to post 1000pictures and videos so I don't have to update the other thread :D. Any info and corrections can be posted and will be much appreciated.

    Hoder have you thought about putting this info on the FireFall Wiki?

    Hmm, I could be remembering wrong, but I dont think the Plasma Cannon can 2 shot anyone but a recon. I think it did around 600 with a direct hit. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Also, you should probably mention the alt fire scatter shot (and that you will be able to customize your alt fire).

    Isn't your other EPIC thread pretty much doing the same thing as this? Or is this supposed to take that info and bring more detail to it?

    If any other thread or firefall wiki wants to take info from this post I don't mind, but since nobody gathered all the info together from pax (and a bit before and beyond). I was thinking I'd do it, since atm it's scattered throughout the forums. Alot easier aswell to make a new thread and just reserve a few posts instead of post a huge post on page 10 from an existing thread then post some more on page 11 and so on. Just makes it clean and readable.

    For now I'm far from done and good to know the damage is around 600, so that means 3shot, maybe 2shot if they took some damage or facing a recon.

    The other one just links people around but has no real actuall text on it and people still have to look throughout all the different posts and interviews to get the information. I'm trying to bring it together in one text.
