Metal Max Xeno recently received new information today, detailing the Type-10 Kai tank, and how attribute chips can make or break boss fights against certain enemies. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
A tank that can be obtained relatively early into the game. It is based on the JSDF’s latest tank model.
Changing strategies using Attribute Chips
Attribute chips are items obtained from crates or monsters that can be slotted into Attribute sockets. By doing so, you can power up your tanks or specialize them towards different roles.
The Attribute chips come in Active and Passive types. Active Attribute chips add new attacks to the arsenal, while Passive Attribute chips change the basic stats and is always active.
Wanted Monster: Grifftoro
Grifftoro is a flying base that boasts a higher evasion rate than most enemies. By equipping the Anti-Air chip, that particular tank will have higher hit percentages on airborne enemies, which can be the deciding factor in this fight.
Boss Monster: Battleship Saurus, Mothership Saurus
A supersize monster with battleship-like armor surrounding its body. It has exceptionally dull senses and won’t notice any weaker attacks against it. By equipping the ‘Grand Rush’ Active chip, players can use the Cannon Rush attack which fires all the cannons on the tank, dealing massive damage to progress the fight forward.
Metal Max Xeno releases in Japan on April 19, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game also has a planned Western release.
