Boffs and armor sets
 
Here's a question. If i equip my landing party boffs with armor sets (MACO, Omega, Jem'Hadar), are they smart enough to work all the extra features of the set?

bumping, because I'd like to know the answer to this also

I would like to see an answer on this.

I have been passing down my 'old' versions to DOffs in this manner but none have a complete set yet so have not seen any evidence in either direction.

One of my guys has 2 piece of the Omega set. (I lack the gun).

He seems to be using the 2pc buff, but the timing is hard to notice.

I can't say anything concrete unfortunately. But I may give him the 3P MACO set without a freq remod and see if it works... Although that is going to be a sucky mission for me.

The advantage I have here is the MACO rifle is the only phaser my away team have. So I can watch the phaser buff on the borg and see what happens.

Anyone else have experience with this?

I wish there were ground versions of DSEs so that you could 1) test these things out easily, 2) have known enemies in repeating missions - unlike the explore hit-and-miss, and 3) have a place to test my ground builds before I go into the STFs.

I've looked through Foundry missions for something that would suffice, but haven't found anything satisfactory.

Still looking for anyone who has a confirmed answer on this.

Any news on this yet? Do we know if Boff's make use of passive and active abilities granted from ground sets?

I'm currently replaying the 2800 missions to give my Away team the Jem'Hadar Shield and Armour each lol

Success!
 
I just put my entire Jem Hadar set on one of my bridge officers and I noticed two things. First, the passive abilities lit up one at a time as I equipped the armor. Then I saw the officer use shroud during my first ground battle.

So I'd say yes the bridge officers do utilize the bonus abilities. :)
