I’ll keep this post straight to the point. There are two things to get right with Finka in order to get the most out of her:

1. Time your boosts right.

This is a rather easy thing to achieve. The next points are aimed at non-communicating teams:

  • Don’t waste a boost at the start of the round unless you know the enemy team is going all-in on spawn peeks.
  • Use your first boost as soon as you think your team will engage on gunfights.
  • Understand what your team is doing. If you or your team slows the push down and back up, don’t boost again. If the team keeps pushing, keep boosting.
  • If you see a downed teammate, don’t boost unless you know he can’t get up by another teammate.
  • Don’t be stingy. Using your boosts when only 2 attackers are alive means you are boosting 2 attackers. Those 3 dead teammates would have probably made a good use of a boost.

2. Team play, from the operator selection to the action phase.

  • In most cases, strats shouldn’t be planned around Finka.
  • That being said, using Finka allows your team to get the most out of LMG’s and shields. The team will benefit a lot using them as they go from being mediocre/situational choices to be very good choices thanks to Finka.
  • Let your teammates know they can ask for a boost as soon as they need it.
  • Stay alive. She is kind of an equivalent of Smoke/Lesion on attack. If you die with 1 boost left, that’s 1/3 of your utility wasted.
