Introduction

The Arms Lab is the Frontiersmen upgrade research structure created by the Marine Commander. Marines or MACs are required to assemble the unbuilt structure and Power Nodes nearby.

When powered, it can be used to research weapon and armor upgrades for Marines and Exosuits. If the Arms Lab gets destroyed while an upgrade is researching, the research gets aborted and the research costs are lost.


Tactical Summary - Arms Lab

  • Arms Lab upgrades increase your marines combat strength, so it is recommended to get it early in the game.
  • The research Armor 1 and 2 are considered very strong because they provide Marines with an additional hit by most Lifeforms.

Research

Info: You can't recycle the Arms Lab while researching an upgrade. Instead, you have to cancel the research first, then you can recycle the structure.
