I built an Isharay with the bio-converter augmentation, which gives me an extremely powerful sniper rifle that never needs to reload (with effectively infinite ammo), but at cost of running through my health as quickly as I can take down enemies.

What options do I have to quickly replenish my health after firing a few shots with this Isharay?

I'm looking for powers, other augmentations, consumables, strategies - anything that can help. My current Ryder has primarily combat+tech skills developed.


The best combination you can do with the bio converter is tech skills.

Specifically, life support:

Life Support: Improves health regeneration rate for the user and nearby squadmates and tech constructs for 3 sec after using a tech power.

Health Regeneration Bonus: 200%
Health Regeneration Cap: 50%

This will let you spam tech skills to constantly recharge your health.

Here is an example (gifv file) of someone using an bio converter Dhan with life support:

    Thanks! Time for a re-spec, it seems. This looks like a good fit for a shotgun-weilder, but for a long-distance sniper... Often, when the enemies are far enough, they don't get "selected" (the name, health bar, etc., don't show), so I can't use powers on them, but the gun is still powerful enough to take them out. But, in that case, I'll probably be able to pause for a breather and let health climb back to 50%. – muru Aug 14 '17 at 5:10

    @muru you could also just spam skills at the floor to recharge health if you can't target anyone – Allball103 Aug 14 '17 at 14:00
  • I just trialled it out on the Cardinal, and it was most satisfactory. Thanks again! @Allball103 nice trick! – muru Aug 14 '17 at 15:10

    @muru also if you are scoped in you can still use your skills, you can sometimes snipe them at distance with it even if they're not targetable – l I Aug 14 '17 at 20:33
  • @lI that does work for powers like concussive shot, but for powers like Energy drain, not so much (I use these two + the Remnant VI power mostly, which leaves me without a tech power repeatedly usable without targeting ) – muru Aug 15 '17 at 2:49
