what is the impact of faction support and character level on game?
In Necromunda - Hired Gun you can do side jobs for various factions: from lowly gangs to Inquisition and Chaos Cults. You can see the how much they like you in the "Factions" tab
But what is the impact of those levels on the gameplay? Do you get better missions from factions that like you more?
In a similar fashion, I can see sometimes that my character "has gained a level". In other games, it would obviously mean that my character became stronger, but AFAIK the only way to make yourself stronger is by getting better gear. Or am I wrong here?
My findings as far as I played:
Faction Reputation: On completion (all bars), unlocks a Tier 3 equipment (weapons/suits/items/...). --update: I tried to finish another faction and got 2 tier purple instead of 1 tier 3 (Promethium Guild - suit and a charm).
Character Level: Leveling unlocks a weapon skin (the ones that cost 80.000).
When you finish a mission, it shows that you unlocked a weapon skin.
You get stronger with equipments and with the Doc.
