How varied is the gear progression now?
Tried this game a while back, and felt that there was a lot missing in terms of gear progression and variety in order to retain interest for raiding bases.
Are you able to unlock a significant amount of sidegrades/upgrades for gear/equipment? How long does that take?
Do they try to make mechanically similar gear with varied playstyle methods of activation or aesthetic?
Can you be silly with how you modify your gear? Or is it generally trying to "be balanced" and grounded "in reality"?
