Best Skywave RIG & Modules: Exoprimal Build Guide

Become support and offense at the same time with the best Exoprimal Skywave build.

Making the best Exoprimal Skywave build involves picking the best RIG and modules for this Exosuit. As part of the Support class, Skywave excels at providing healing for her team while debuffing enemies so they’re easier pickings. Below are the best RIG and Modules that you can prioritize for an optimal Skywave Build in Exoprimal.

Exoprimal Best Skywave Build

Here are the best build options for Skywave:


  • Catapult: Perform a quick boost in jump in the direction you are moving.


  • Slot 1: S01 – Aether Acceleration
  • Slot 2: S – Graviton Shackle
  • Slot 3: Crisis Module

Making the best Skywave build in Exoprimal is all about choosing the right RIG and modules that cater to her abilities. Support is an essential part in Exoprimal even with speed and aggression being the most important factors to winning a game. Weakening enemies so her team can finish them off and keeping her team alive is important to saving as much time as possible.

Skywave is great at debuffs and pestering enemy teams in PVP. She can pull them together making it easy for AOE attacks to take out all of them or temporarily stop them in their tracks leaving them very vulnerable. Skywave also has the most verticality out of any Exosuit because of her ability to glide in the skies giving her a tactical view of the battlefield.

Skywave best RIG and Modules

You have a lot of picks for what RIG and modules you prefer to equip for Skywave, but only a few will benefit her style of play. We picked the ones that will help Skywave support her team while being a menace to dinosaurs and enemy players.

Skywave Best RIG

You can equip one RIG for Skywave which functions as an extra ability with its own cooldown. The best RIG to pick is Catapult which gives Skywave an actual ability to dodge attacks fast. She can jump high in the air but it doesn’t get her anywhere fast enough to dodge enemy fire.

If you want to further debuff enemies, then the Blade RIG is an extra asset to paralyze foes. This leaves them open to damage from your team while your other debuffs are on cooldown.

Skywave Best Module

Like other Exosuits, Skywave can equip three modules. Each module slot holds two Skywave unique modules that can modify and boost certain abilities but you can only pick one. There are also general modules that can be equipped by any Exosuit.

For her first slot, Aether Acceleration is the better pick over Aether Enhancer. Because of how slow the Aether Lance is, you need more speed to actually hit anything. Allies are constantly moving around and you may not be able to hit them with repairs by the time they need it. Aether Acceleration can be unlocked when Skywave is Exosuit level 16.

For her second slot, pick Graviton Shackle over Dispeller. The Graviton Cage is one of the best abilities up Skywave’s arsenal as it sticks hordes of dinosaurs and enemy players closer together. Graviton Shackle can be unlocked when Skywave is Exosuit level 8.

For her third slot, go for Crisis Module which increases your speed when low on health. Skywave doesn’t have much abilities to heal herself as she does to others so being able to get away fast is important for survival.
