Dead Eye Tips For Online Mode
Equip Specific Ability Cards For Certain Missions
It's best to always check what kind of mission you're going into and changing your Ability Card loadout to match it. This will help you quickly accomplish your mission in an easy manner.
Use Dead Eye During Important Moments
It's best to use Dead Eye when you need it - during shootouts or battling enemy players. This saves your gauge for more important moments in your mission.
Level Up Dead Eye Gauge & Ability Cards
Your abilities will get stronger the more you rank them up and your Dead Eye mode will last longer if you keep leveling it up. It's best to rank both your Dead Eye gauge and your Ability Cards to make the most of them.
