What Happens If You Hit Maximum Heat?


If you manage to fill the heat gauge associated with a particular area you will trigger a cooldown. You won’t be able to run any missions while this cooldown is in effect. This can really slow down your operations so make sure you take on schemes that lower heat every now and then. You can always do schemes in other regions while you wait, but you generally want to avoid your heat level getting too high.
