- This mod can be acquired by attaining the rank of General under Steel Meridian, or the rank of Exalted under the Red Veil, and spending 25,000 to purchase.
- As this Augment prevents the Bulwarks from turning into Boulders, Petrify will no longer affect Bulwarks.
- Tectonic Fracture gives Atlas additional defensive tactics in different Mission types:
- In Interception missions, the Bulwarks can be placed "in" the towers' control consoles, forcing the enemy to destroy the Bulwarks and making a given tower "immune" to enemy capture until a Bulwark is destroyed.
- In The Index, properly-placed Bulwarks can prevent enemy Brokers from accessing the Tenno's bank and scoring points.
- In Sortie Defense missions, the Bulwarks can be used to wall in the Tenno Operative, preventing them from wandering around the map and exposing themselves (and by extension, the players) to enemy fire.
This augment does not benefit from modding directly. Indirectly it gains benefits from modding as does the base ability, e.g. power efficiency reduces the cost per wall and power strength increases the health of each wall.
