Are you wondering how to increase your combat strength in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora? Here’s everything you need to know.

Unlike most games, your level in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora isn’t directly tied to your progress. You won’t automatically level up as you progress through the game. Instead, you need to spend skill points and equip better gear in order to increase your level – or combat strength, as the game calls it.

Each mission in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has a recommended combat strength level, so it’s important that you ensure yours increases regularly. If it doesn’t, you may find yourself struggling in combat-based missions – and nobody enjoys seeing endless ‘game over’ screens.

To increase your combat strength level, then, you need to be regularly equipping new gear and mods. You can either craft them, using materials gathered from plants and animals out in the world, buy them from companions in safe camps, or find them by looting.

Your combat strength level will also increase in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora by spending your skill points, so be sure you regularly spend them as you earn them.
