Does the weapon trait charging work in outpost defense

I have never seen it work against me. So is it a good weapon to equip my outpost defense with?

    Short answer - no.

    AI opponents, like your Outpost defenders, do not ever use charge attacks. So charging is not a trait that will matter in Outpost defense, since your shooter will never get two attacks. Same with swift strike for scouts.

    High-power (+2 or +3 range) with traits like Lethal or Destructive that increase damage are better options for outpost, IMO.

    On the other hand, if you're attacking, charging can be a valuable trait, especially in outposts with minimal walkers.
