Techs are enhancements that can be equipped by characters to enhance movement and provide new abilities.
To view and equip techs go to SAIL and click on "Show me my Tech". Aside from the initial tech in each slot, which unlocked after completing a challenge course at the Outpost, players must unlock each tech with a tech drive before they can equip it.
Up to 3 techs can be equipped at one time. They are split into 3 categories: Head, body, and legs. You can equip one of tech slot at once. You can view your equipped techs in the inventory window.
Head slot techs allow the player to change into a variety of small spheres, each with unique abilities. This transformation is done using F, and players will stay transformed until they press F again. While in sphere form players will still take damage from enemies and falling normally. Sphere tech is initially unlocked by doing a challenge course quest at the Outpost. Each of the upgraded spheres provides the utility of the distortion sphere with additional abilities. Players can only have one head slot selected at a time.
