If you want to take down big aliens, you need big guns. That mathematical formula was not created by me, but by someone far smarter. Probably Ridley Scott or someone like that, I don't know. The point is, I know that you love your gun, and a bigger version of the same gun would probably do you some good.

Thus, the crafting station. The solitary, yet important, section of every alien hunter's ship, the place you put together all of your materials and create weapons of mass alien destruction. And in Gigantic X, that is more important than ever.

You will quickly find yourself going up against towering, huge alien beasts, and you'll need big guns, heavy duty armour, and much more. Luckily, the crafting station can provide much of it.

Just follow our tips right here, and you'll soon perfectly understand how important and useful that crafting station will be to your future. Just choose wisely…

Crafty business

Right, so each mercenary will have two weapons, a helmet, powersuit, innersuit, defender, greaves, and backpack to craft and equip, and each of them will impact how powerful and capable your mercenaries will be in battle.

In the early game, you will want to choose one mercenary to main for a while, and outfit them with the very best gear possible. Over time, you will need to branch out and include the other two mercenaries too.

For now, check your main mercenary, and double check what their least capable pieces of gear are, and select the piece you want to craft.

But crafting is expensive. You will need plenty of ore to use as materials, and then you'll need Gunzo BP points to use as currency for crafting. And you'll need plenty of it, which will slow down how often you can craft things, especially in the early game. Just take your time, and focus on one piece at a time.
