The Amplifier serves as a long-range fire support unit for Novus, employing concentrated Sonic attacks against the enemy. The primary sonic resonator attack deals damage over time to a targeted ground object and gains power the longer it focuses on said target, going through three stages. It also prevents the target from activating special abilities or firing. This attack is strong against structures and Masari Dark Matter Armor but weak against heroes and abysmal against infantry. Its harmonic pulse deals high point blank area of effect damage and knocks back infantry, although the Amplifier cannot move while using it. This attack is especially strong against structures and infantry while dealing fair damage to most other targets that enter the pulse.

  • Move the Amplifier to the middle of a enemy base and activate their Harmonic Wave ability.
  • Amplifiers have extraordinary range, which means that other units can scout for the Amplifier. Once the target is painted, the Amplifier can deploy, thereby contributing to the battle while staying safe at the same time. Blade Troopers are a good fit for this role as they have stealth, and can also draw fire with their free clones, if needed. Vertigo also works for similar reasons.
  • Amplifiers are fragile, and easily destroyed when unprotected. Always guard your Amplifiers.
  • Cascade Resonance makes Amplifiers devastating against Habitat Walkers, because the crown sockets are all the same "type of unit" and are close enough together that an Amplifier shooting any crown socket will automatically shoot all 4 of them. Combine this with their large range to take down Habitat Walkers with ease.
