Act of Aggression Base Extension Guide

    0

    In Act of Aggression there are a number of structures, upgrades and strategies that allow you to build away and out of your original base, establishing bases to support team mates or satellite bases to control resource rich areas.

    US

    If you are trying to establish a second base, especially sneakily, then you should learn the ‘Grizzly Project‘ via the Field HQ which doubles the speed of your Shredders (build vehicle). You can’t control the Shredder to sneak it round the edges of the map so it will always go via the roads, so the faster the better.

    All the following structures can have a protective wall built round them with ‘Green Zone‘ available from the Logistical Center after learning Defcon 1. You only need to learn it once for 2000 aluminium,and 500 rare earth and all buildings you have that can get the wall will get it.

    act of aggression fob structureDefense Projection – Bought at the Field HQ. Only allows the MG nests (turrets) to be built anywhere on the map.  They have no build radius.

    FOB – Can be built anywhere on the map via the Defcon 2 tab.  You can then build any structure within its medium build radius via ‘Base Quick Selection’ menu.

    HQ – Headquarters can be built anywhere. You can then build any structure next to it via ‘Base Quick Selection’ menu.

    act of aggression lems

    Lem Extension

    LEMs (both types) – Can not be built anywhere on the map but you can build them out from your base. They have a small build radius that you can place any other structure next to via the ‘Base Quick Selection’ menu.

    Refinery – Refineries can be built anywhere on the map but they have no build radius.

    Chimera

    HQ – Headquarters can be built anywhere. You can then build any structure next to it via ‘Base Quick Selection’ menu.

    Outpost – This building makes it very easy to establish another base as it can be placed anywhere on the map and has a decent build radius to place other buildings such as turrets and vehicle bays.

    Rare Earth Outpost –  As with the LEMs in the US faction they can not be built anywhere on the map but you can build them out from your base. They have a small build radius that you can place any other structure next to via the ‘Base Quick Selection’ menu.

    Refinery – Refineries can be built anywhere on the map but they have no build radius.

    Cartel

    Barracks – Barracks can be built anywhere on the map once the ‘Force Projection‘ upgrade has been learnt via the Head Quarters building. It has a small build radius that Artillery Turrets can be built on, nothing else.

    Expansion Module & Rare Earth Extension Module – From the ‘Private Military’ and ‘Black Ops’ tab respectively this unit can not be built anywhere but it can be built out from a base and an structure can be built within its large build radius via the ‘Base Quick Selection’ menu.

    HQ – Headquarters can be built anywhere. You can then build any structure next to it via ‘Base Quick Selection’ menu.

    Refinery – Refineries can be built anywhere on the map but they have no build radius.
