As for augmenting MK2; just make MK2 pretty much the equivalent to what BM gear is now. BM gear from my experience is not that bad even if un-augmented. You won't dominate, but you stand a chance in hell.
Agreed, but the whole "unmoddable part" makes me cringe.... That's why free aug slots should be added. You can't min/max with recruit as you can with BM currently. If you are going to "force persuade" (
) people to wear recruit them at least give them a bone since they will pay 100% of augmenting in the next tier..
