Vehicle Aquisition Timer Icon

Acquisition Timer was a passive system available to all vehicles. It was unlocked and upgraded using Certification Points.

Acquisition Timer reduced the acquire timer, a cooldown between spawning two of the same vehicle, an old mechanic used to limit vehicle spawning before the introduction of Nanites. Previously, after spawning a vehicle, a cooldown had to be waited out before you could spawn another one, even if you had the necessary resources. This timer also affected the MAX which had an identical ability, called MAX: Acquire Timer Reduction.

Acquisition Timer, as well as the acquire timer mechanic that it affected, was removed in the August 5, 2014 Update, when Nanites were added to function as the new limiting system. All certification points spent on all variants of Acquisition Timer were refunded.
