[Counter:Side] Squad Composition Guide – How to make an effective squad?
What is Fusion Core?
You need fusion cores to limit break from Lv 100Each limit break extends Lv by 2
100 -> 102 -> 104 -> 106 -> 108 -> 110
Each limit break needs 15 Fusion cores for SSR, but they can be exchanged with duplicates
and no fusion core needed with 3 dupes
what the hell is that all…
Don’t worry. Fusion is like end contents, and you can transfer soldier/mech cores into counter cores from Workshop
So, can I start to composite my squad?
Part 2. Squad composition (Basics)
1. Attack types
Basically, there are 3 attack types in Counter:Side
- Ground Attack: Only attacks ground enemies
- Air Attack: Only attacks air enemies
- ALL: Attacks both ground and air
but, certain characters (such as Awakened Yoo Mina) are Ground Attack types but can take damage to air enemies (Don’t think of it… Just forget for now)
* Hmmmmm *
Click on Unit Formation on squad screen and check whether you can deal with all types of enemies
Always get ready for air enemies, otherwise you are damned
* sorry *
2. The most basic composition: Tank / Deal / Deal / Deal
first, take your main tanker first, and then 3 dealers
when main tanker is in danger, use sub tanker to keep line and use more dealers
oh, it looks simple and easy
for example, let’s take xiao rin as main dealer, and let’s make a squad
let’s add tanks.
as we are in early stage of game, let’s use hound and irie, they are easy to raise, good and efficient R rank defenders
and let’s add dealers
now it works
so, can I use any dealers?
Think of attack types I mentioned earlier
* my first squad completed *
Actually, starting cost is 10, so you can use anyone front
I have only 5 costs at the start of battle, why is that?
That’s bcz you have only 1 star on your ship
you can get higher starting cost with your ship’s stars
★☆☆☆☆☆ : start cost 5
★★☆☆☆☆ : start cost 6
★★★☆☆☆ : start cost 7
★★★★☆☆ : start cost 8
★★★★★☆ : start cost 9
★★★★★★ : start cost 10
So, if you have full 10 costs, you can make all front 4 characters released on field at the start of battle
Then, how should I upgrade my ship? Is it a must?
go to dive and get upgrade materials
Is it ok to upgrade my basic ships?
not for coffin
(Please check #guides and #faq on discord)
as you can get Gleipnir while progressing game, keep it raised
So i can go with that car (Undercontrol)
⇒ Yes, Undercontrol is a good N ranked cruiser ship until you get Kamiizumi.
You don’t need to construct other N and R ranked cruisers
ok ok, why there’s lots of things i need to know to make a squad?
Actually it’s not end yet
Let’s take more look at cost management
