Dirty Bomb Wiki

Augments are are modifications found on Loadout Cards that can be applied to specific Mercenaries to give them a boost in combat. Here, you'll find a list of the types of augments found in the current build, including a transcript of their listed effect.

Some Augments are unique to certain roles (i.e. Medic), while others are unique to the abilities of either one or more specific Mercs (I.e. "Spotter" is only found in Loadouts for Aimee and Vassili, while "Extender" is only found on Turtle and Guardian).
