  • Holding down the activation button for Double Tap will allow the player to fire continuously. This is true for every M1 so far.
  • Phase Round pierces through more than just enemies. It is able to shoot through walls, trees, and other map objects.
  • Using Tactical Dive before hitting the ground will allow the player to avoid taking fall damage, as it cancels the player's vertical momentum. It can also be used to roll up certain cliffs, allowing the player to climb to normally-inaccessible vantage points.
  • Suppressive Fire can interrupt enemy attacks such as Golems' eye blasts. Bosses, being immune to stun effects, cannot be affected however.
  • Suppressive Fire can, in fact, fire faster and more shots at higher attack speed levels similar to the Mercenary's Eviscerate, though this is not listed in the tooltip.
