https://www.reddit.com/r/AnthemTheGame/comments/azztgv/psa_removing_your_support_items_massively/Removing your support items massively increases melee/combo/proc/ult damage.
Reason: since patch game scales damage of combos/ults/procs and melee based on average item level you have equipped, but if you don't have item equipped at all it does not take that slot into account in calculation at all, meaning by removing the low level support item boosts your average item level for purpose of the calculation.
To remove your support item you can create a new fresh loadout - it starts without support item equipped.
Edit: and yes as one poster figured it out - this means if you equip ONLY legendary items you will basically do most damage with ult/combos/melee/procs. Technically - you can like equip only one legendary item and nothing else and wreck, but of course that's not very feasible due to HP and some components being good as is.
I really don't know what to say XD
