So played some games and i would like to give some tips for those who get confused with the whole scenario

 

Franken - Good armor good mobility mediocre guns, good for tanking the minions 

 

Steins-low armor good mobility great guns especially vs Leviathan

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Best strategy i came up so far, kill off the minions at least 12/14 ( you can ignore those at the gate if you want to but they are required for some missions or such)

avoid taking a medkit if you are more than 75% hp leave them there to use them while you burn out leviathan. If you ignore the minions and focus leviathan its a lost game.

 

As a stain its better if you come out on your target sideways, this way you can use both your guns for a burst damage.  the small autocannon reloads faster than the big gun so going behind a huge obstacle side ways you can alternate your guns on leviathan the moment they are reloaded. ie poke on one side of the obstacle, fire the big gun and then poke from the other side of the obstacle to fire the small autocannon ( by pressing the Q key ) 

 

As a franken you focus on tanking the minions and then you can start burning leviathan down, since both turrets are on the front sidescraping works best for tanking dmg. 

 

Leviathan: 

 

Avoid the big gun  it deals big dmg that gets buffed the moment leviathan is enraged.  the small guns cause mediocre dmg but they can track you easily. Avoid shooting at the back or the front of leviathan as you will have  a hard time penetrating him. however if you are stuck at the back of him  then aim for the small turrets at the sides.  the sides of the whole tank is almost an autopen. also be aware of the small circles  at the ground as they are artillery like guns at the back of leviathan and they can cause serious damage and stun.

 

Thats all i could gather so far, if you got more tips feel free to share

 

update: 

 

Equipment

------------------------

Crew gets no xp dont bother with that, you can equip a small + large repair kit + medkit for when you are stunned, i also added a toolbox for faster repairs (adds up with the large repair kit)

You can equip a GLD and optics if you want to go balls to the walls and snipe from distance while spotting leviathan

 

Taking a medkit ( the one that gets dropped by the minions) also fixes all your broken modules

Issue I've had with teams so far is that everyone takes the med kits instantly. I see some clear the gate area and leaves a few there to stay, but when they even pick up everyone there when no one needs healing. It's not ideal for the end game.

 

And considering tomorrow will have a healing mission. I suspect most will take everything up regardless. So you will have none when you need it.

 

Luckily the pen on the boss tank is not that insane. So you can still use that side armor. And the mantle is easy to pen on it if he aims on you. Just aim near the gun and look for the sight to turn green.

Seeing as how most like to fight the leviathan from 50m, KEEP YOUR DISTANCE. Only 1 tanks needs to spot him, rest can snipe.

That's the thing, he only focus on attacking one at the time with each of this two guns. As pr the warning you get. If he aims on you, just back off into cover and force him to shot the building and peek out to take a shot. If anyone yoloes close to him, his focus will shift. So it's kinda like a raid battle on any mmo, if you are in group, you gotta control aggro. The few times I've done it, is when he more or less just aims at the same guy, and the rest snipes him down. If he keeps shifting his focus, your teams HP will drop fast.

When minions are killed they drop a med kit.

if they take a medkit you get a percentage of that aswell, so dont take a medkit if you dont need it,  someone with low hp can use it and you wil get the rest of you hp back as passive

Also i found out that spamming a miniguide at the begining  helped alot. i spammed the ''Kill most minions, dont take the medkits unless you really need them, leave them when we nuke leviathan''

Is the secondary gun key rebindable?

Since for me as a lefty its not optimal to reach from the arrow keys to the Q key every 3 seconds :).

Indeed. I got hooked up on personal missions only a week or two back, but now it seems pointless to fight if it's not with a mission goal.
