The Assault kit is designed for players looking to do combat in the style of the average infantryman. The weaponry for this class is meant for multiple enemies within a medium to near distance and discharges rounds that will usually either spray or explode across the field of battle. Another perk of this kit is that it provides a fair amount of additional ammunition clips and medkits.
For maps that feature a high volume of vehicles or heavy artillery installments, the Engineer kit is provided for the purposes of either repair or dismantlement. This class is usually equipped with mines or weapons that fire projectile missiles and rockets for the sole intention of obliterating armored transports. However, this kit is also stocked with tools that can mend damage to vehicles belonging to your allies as well as a robot that disarms explosive devices.
The Recon kit is for players who feel more comfortable doing battle with as little exposure as possible and would classify their favorite method of combat as sniping. Using this class means staying in the same area for a prolonged period of time to pick off enemies in the distance with long-range rifles or moving out into the open when no one else is around to lay down mines or other defensive measures. This kit is also lined with extremely close-range weapons as well to fend off opponents that sneak up from behind.
The Support kit is used by players operating in the name of teamwork and assistance since its primary function is to either re-supply or buy time for allies mounting offensive strikes. While they will rarely hit their mark, the weaponry this class employs is powerful enough to delay the competition’s advancing forces by making them duck for cover until your own team can re-group. A unique aspect of this kit is the ability to toss ammo boxes to your comrades while you remain out of the enemy’s line of fire.
Hints and Tips
- With the Assault kit, equip a weapon with explosive rounds and find a group of your teammates who are moving towards an M-Com for defusing or planting purposes. Run to the front of the pack and use your weapon to clear the path ahead of any enemies standing in your way.
- When utilizing the Engineer kit on defense, stay behind cover at a mid-range distance from one of the M-Coms and wait for an opponent to plant the bomb. Take the attacker out with a projectile rocket, then use your robot to defuse the explosives.
- With the Recon kit, change sniping locations after every third or fourth kill you pick up in that position. This will prevent your resurrected victims from preemptively targeting you the next time they return to the area.
- With the Support kit, stay in a group or two-man team when on offense to lay down suppressive fire ahead and allow your allies to continue progressing forward.
- When utilizing the Recon kit in the city of Paris, choose a room with one entry point on the upper floor of a building that overlooks a high foot-traffic area. Lay one of your mines in front of the doorway or on the stairs leading up to the room so that enemies cannot sneak up from behind.
- With the Engineer kit, equip your flashlight when moving through areas such as the subway station or buildings of Paris that have narrow corridors and multiple corners. Shine the beam into the faces of opponents who suddenly appear as a means of causing temporary disorientation to make them easier targets.
- When utilizing the Assault kit, team up with players of the same class to run as a group towards opponents standing their ground. Not only will your weapons work better at close-range but the medkits and defibrillators available in this clss can help revive any ally killed in the process.
- When utilizing the Support kit on defense, stay crouched down by teammates guarding the M-Com and throw them supplies whenever things start looking bleak.
