Added in Update 1.5, players can no longer "chain" signature skills together. When a player uses a Signature Skill, the group is prevented from activating the same Signature Skill for 60 seconds.
A Signature Skill's base cooldown time is 1,080s, around 18 minutes. However, the cooldown time can be decreased by a player's skill power, weapon talents, and the Signature Skill Resource Gain attribute.
Skill power actively affects the cooldown time. The more skillpower you have, the quicker the Signature Skill recharges.
Signature Skill Resource Gain
The Signature Skill Resource Gain attribute does not decrease the cooldown time, rather it increases the value of reduction to the time when getting kills. When getting kills, the time is decreased by an amount. The Signature Skill Resource Gain attribute adds to that value. Headshot kills also increases this value.
The weapon talents Skilled and Trained can also affect the recharge time.
- Headshot kills with this weapon increase Signature Skill resources by 5%
- Critical hits increase Signature Skill resource by 0.1%
