"Rage 2" by Bethesda is a pretty straightforward open-world shooter – if it were not for the hopelessly confused upgrade system. What do you need which currency and how do you get the best improvements? We'll explain how to get the most out of the brutal wasteland trip!
Feltrit, Nuclear Cores, Nanotrit Boosters – "Rage 2" is full of collectable resources, components, and currencies that give you access to ever-improving upgrades and abilities. But it is not easy to find your way around the maze of menus and submenus – the unintuitive operation turns a simple system into a search game.
In the following guidebook we will explain what you need the individual raw materials and how to get as fast as possible to the most important improvements for your weapons and your character.
Feltrit: Improves your equipment
You will find the blue sparkling Feltrit practically everywhere. It is the most important resource you collect, as it unlocks new tiers, upgrade levels, for your equipment. You do that in the "weapons" tab of the menu.
Very important: The Feltrit really only unlocks the respective levels of a weapon, but not their actual upgrades! For this you need the weapon cores in the next step.
Feltrit's on every corner. And box. And in rocks. And of opponents. And everywhere.
Weapon Cores: Make the weapons more robust
Actually self-explanatory: If you have unlocked the improvement levels of a Wumme with the Feltrit, you buy the actual upgrades with the weapon cores.
And which weapon should you upgrade now? That's up to you!
Nanotrit Boosters: Improve Your Nanotrit Abilities
Your nanotrit skills will save you virtual life more than once. You improve them with the Nanotrit Boosters, which you often find in much sought-after Arch Entrees. To do this, navigate to the tab "Nanotrites" in the menu.
The energy burst is indispensable early in the game.
Project Points: Make you stronger
The project points work quite similar to the weapon upgrades. First, find the three important NPCs that provide you with secondary tasks and missions. Do not worry, the game shows you quite early, where John Marshall, Loosum Hagar and Dr. To stop Kvasir. Talk to each NPC to unlock the first level of their respective project tree.
Complete missions in the wastelands to get project points. Of course you can do that in any order. If you prefer to explore freely, you can do tasks before you hit the appropriate NPC – so you collect project points, so to speak, "in stock". You then spend these project points in the project trees of the three NPCs for upgrades of your character. You want to carry more ammunition or find boxes better? This is all in the "Projects" tab in the menu.
No pain no gain! And no project points.
Neuron Interfaces, Glands & Ark Tech Nuclei
Sooner or later you will find neuron interfaces, glands of life and Ark-Tech cores. Take her to Cyber-Doc in Wellsprings to unlock permanent augmentations for your character.
Such improvements as more life energy or higher weapon damage make your life in the Postal Apocalypse much easier!
Yes, you, surely you need some fresh augmentations, right? "
MBTV tokens: upgrades for your weapons
You receive the tokens from boxes, shot balloons and loudspeakers as well as from the brutal game show Mutant Bash. Exchange them with the MBTV dealer for upgrades of your weapons, ammo or new skins for your bucks.
Who actually fills a box with valuable tokens and lets them just stand around somewhere …?
Blueprints: Need to Crafts and Improve
The "Inventory" tab in the menu will allow you to craft and enhance essential basics such as medipacks, grenades or new wingsticks – but only if you have previously collected the appropriate blueprints. You get them from dealers throughout the wastelands. Of course you also need the right raw materials, but even those are in the wastelands really no shortage.
Even the man (and the woman) is: In 2019, there is simply nothing left without crafting.
Car parts: make your cart (almost) invincible
With the car parts you improve your Phoenix. Although you will quickly find in the game more and supposedly better vehicle, but the Phoenix is pleasantly fast, robust and reliable – pimp your cart so regularly! You will need the extra power under the bonnet at the latest on the first street duel against a powerful convoy.
And do not forget to repair your Nuckelpinne regularly!
Money: That's just … money
What you do with the coal that you regularly find and deserve, we do not have to explain to you, right? But …? Well, that will buy everything you need from traders and not in the desert. Tip: Locations of the Arks only cost $ 250, but are worth the price!
Cash bundles are somehow the most unruly thing you can find in "Rage 2".
