Traits are persistent abilities which reinforce and complement each playstyle. Each Rig is outfitted with 3 distinct Payloads and 3 unique Traits to choose from before entering combat. Choosing a Rig provides strategic options for players, as Rigs provide a customized suite of tactical options for every engagement.”
