Carrying combo cards increases the effectiveness of combo weapons in two ways. First of all, they unlock the weapon’s heavy attack, if there is one. Also, they award extra experience for kills using particular combo weapons. Most of these cards are unlocked simply by leveling up, but not all. We’ve got the list of the non-leveling cards, tabulated below.
