All of Laura's tech is directly related to how many Sentries are in her platoon. Problem: Sentries are completely outdated. There are TWO new infantry units already for Sentinels Faction that are far superior: Devouts and Absolvers. I'm sure that's why Kix gave her the smoke grenade but seriously that hardly makes up for the lack of practical heroic tech.
Solution: Immediately give her Renowned Status, and make Laura's level 10 power be her heroic tech applies to ALL Sentinels infantry. Absolvers, Devouts, Sentries, Acolytes, Chaplains, and future Sentinels infantry, all fight harder to protect their smokin' hot hero babe.
