I'd like to avoid remaking my character since it would result in me losing anything I unlock, so before I decide on a faction I'd like to know what the gameplay differences between each of them are.

What are the gameplay differences between the factions?

1 Answer 1


While searching for this anwser I found a nice little chart with the differences in weapons.

The difference is:

TR: High rate of fire with less damage.
VS: Lasers and mobility
NC: High damage low attack speed.

  • This is a good overview of the weapons, but you should probably mention the differences in the MBTs and ESFs. Dec 4, 2012 at 20:11
