View Full Version : Effects of pilot level.

I know leveling pilots gives skill points. But I have two questions:
1) what does “familiarity” do? The yellow dots? Just shows how many skill points I’ve gotten out of it?
2) What are the effects of a pilot’s total level? My Level 22 Starfox can take A LOT more hits than my level 4 Judge (from the same enemy, while in same ship). So it looks like HP is a function of level? Anything other stats affected by level?

1. It needs to be tested, but I believe familiarity boosts your damage with that weapon. Additionally, I found that if a pilot Mastered a weapon or ship, ALL pilots gain one lvl with that item.

2. I agree with your findings there, as my then lvl 24 Shaid ripped through the last two planets for me, while switching to a then lvl 6 Mason led to him getting two shot (only thing switched out was the pilot).
He also took significantly longer to take down enemies, though whether this was due to his lvl, lack of familiarity with the weapons, or most likely both, I cannot say.
