S-Class Abilities | S-Grade Augments

What SSAs should I use on my weapons?

These icons will show up on SSA/SGA compatible items:

SSA’s or Super Special Abilities SClassAbilityIcon are capable of making a weapon that supports them certainly viable via utility, damage or both. For Ranger, it’s suggested to find a balance between PP and damage focused SSAs to get the best of both worlds.
Some abilities may not be available for NA yet.
