Boost is a tactical element unique to Gungnir that allows nearby allies to reinforce the attacking unit with support. In order for Boosts to initiate, several requirements must be met first. First, a unit must have a piece of equipment (ex: Savage Hunter) that will allow for a boost effect to occur. Next, the supporter must be placed on a tile within cross + on any side of the attacker; the range in which a boost can occur will increase (to a maximum of 4 tiles away) the more bases there are under control. Both player and enemy units have these benefits. When used strategically, Boosts can tip the scales favorably and/or aid in surgical strikes.
