It’s super fun although kind of confusing, or I’m not super bright.
Not each upgrade is better than the last. It's not a linear system, so test everything out in the alley to see if it works for you... and even then, it may not suit you well in the field.
Adjust your control sensitivity so you can move the camera/aim a bit faster, but only push it to where you're comfortable (again, the alley is your friend)
Once you unlock the ability to set your team preference, PRACTICE THE GHOST! Go up against bots first. The 3D movement can be a bit frustrating when you first jump into it (the added keymapping will help once it's patched in)
Once you toss a trap, unless the ghost is close to it, keep it closed until the ghost is close. Nothing more frustrating than seeing the ghost start to get sucked in and -CLACK- the trap slams shut due to a dead battery.
Always keep an eye on your pack's heat levels.
The PKE Meter tells you everything you need to find the ghost. The screen LEDS swoop down to the right when a ghost is near by (or a haunted object or minion) and will swoop up to the right for rifts and objects containing rifts. Use the stun feature sparingly as it'll knock out it's tracking ability for a little while so it can recharge. Unless you're doing a challenge where you NEED to destroy minions, just toss out your trap. They'll be drawn in and pop a LOT faster than blasting them with the proton stream and won't waste your PKE stun blast.
Tag a ghost... and KEEP tagging it if you're chasing it (I think it's E on PC and clicking the right stick on consoles).
DOn't forget about equipment contracts and side hustles for XP, cosmetics , and equipment upgrades!
