For 10 points and a generator slot this upgrade allows you to add 2 white die and the Suppressive keyword to your to an attack while from a weapon with fixed front, in exchange for exhausting the card.
2 white dice is either .5 or .75 damage depending on if the unit using it converts surges. However the Suppressive keyword is quite powerful, and the main point in adding this upgrade to an attack. Adding another suppression to the results of your attack can be quite devastating to an opponent’s troopers and very effective at keeping them at bay or even getting them to turn and run.
This upgrade is recommended for lists that might be short on activations and need additional ways to slow down the opponents troops - or fits nicely into a list whose primary game plan is to suppress and control the opponent. Keep in mind that Suppressive is a keyword that does not stack so no matter how many instances of it you have, you still only add one additional suppression. Also keep in mind that because this exhausts to function, it pairs well with other abilities that exhaust - increasing the efficiency of your recover actions.
