Nano and Monster Types play a big role in FusionFall. Monsters and Nanos are divided into three types, each made out of a slightly different type of Fusion Matter - Adaptium (A), Blastons (B) or Cosmix (C).
Each Nano falls under one of the three types, each Monster does, too. These different types trump one another very much like a game of rock/paper/scissors. When you're fighting a monster, it is advised that you pay attention to what type of monster it is. The Nano you have active during combat can either help you or hurt you.
By utilizing the right nano in combat, you can reflect a monster's corruption attack and damage it instead.
You should always try using a Nano that beats the monster type you are fighting. The monster's type is shown on the monster indicator on the top of your screen, while the Nano's type is shown on the NanoCom on the lower-right of your screen. You will also see an icon next to the monster that will tell you if your active Nano is the is the best type of Nano for defeating that monster. If you see a green check-mark, you will get a bonus against that monster; if you see an equal sign, neither you nor the monster will get a bonus; and if you see a red x, the monster will get a bonus against you.
