Soon in game: the fifth class
SED AS A NEW CLASS
SED (Synthetically Engineered Double) is a new class; it is an android you have already got familiar with in the latest Special Operations. As for other classes, it is well-balanced and will not be stronger than them; however, it has unique features that will allow for a brand new gaming experience.
There is a range of features that make the class's gameplay unique.
Unsurpassed armor. The SED class has a huge armor supply that ensures excellent protection from enemy bullets shot even from the most effective weapon models. This advantage is set off by few health that Medics will not be able to replenish. However, the Engineer class has been adjusted and now they can support SEDs restoring their armor and putting the android back into lines with a special tool — jumper.
Heavy weaponry. SED is armored with a heavy machine gun that does not require reloading. Its precision increases with every shot fired. However, there is a drawback to it - SED can shoot only from the hip and the gun tends to overheat so you will not be able to maintain your fire for a long time.SED's secondary weapon is a grenade launcher with two charges: explosion deals moderate damage and has a flashbang effect. There are no other guns available yet, but will be quite enough to effectively eliminate enemies. In addition, SED will not be able to pick up guns of other classes and vice versa.
Unassisted climbing. Unlike other classes SED can climb high objects without teammates' help: it should only run to an obstacle and jump. This skill will enable it to infiltrate behind the enemy lines or occupy an important vantage point making up for its low mobility.
Increased stability. There is no way to knock SED off its feet. Even if it receives uncritical damage from a bolt-action rifle, the android will remain fit for battle. However, due to its slow movement it will be easy for the enemy sniper to land the second blow, potentially killing SED.
As any other class SED has its weak points.
Low mobility. SED's impressive armor makes it quite heavy: thus, the android has low running and strafe speed as well as a shorter slide distance. Naturally, "human" soldiers are much quicker. At the same time, the robot's impressive endurance makes up for this drawback.
Fragility in melee. SED's main vulnerability is melee combat. One stab with a knife will be enough to disable it.
Less gear. SED does not equip the ordinary gear meaning that it cannot get the same bonuses as other classes. Its specs can be upgraded by replacing special modules.
SED is a typical "tank" that thanks to its first-rate armor and unusual weaponry will become an excellent tool for area control and frontal assaults. The new class will drastically change the habitual cooperation tactics and team line-ups in all the game modes.
The introduction of the fifth class will have a significant impact on the roles of other classes. The Engineer will now become some kind of a Medic due to the fact that he will be able to put the android back in line. Teamwork will reach a new level when the new class will become the vanguard closely monitored by the Engineer healed by Medics in their turn.
The Standard gear is equipped by default while Improved items will be available for Crowns.
