Killzone: Shadow Fall's Support Class Comes to the RescueJohn Llewellyn Martin |
Guerrilla Games has unveiled more details about Killzone: Shadow Fall's Support Class. When you're out there killing dudes, he's running around, making sure you don't die.
A post on the Killzone blog introduces us to the Support Class, which the developer claims is the "most versatile of Killzone: Shadow Fall's multiplayer classes."
The Support Class' bread-and-butter is the Revive Drone skill, which pops out a medical robot that can resurrect your fallen comrades in battle. If they accept your rez, your teammates will come back to life with full health, more ammo and a 25 percent boost to their health. But most importantly, it ensures that the opposing team doesn't score a kill.
Fans of utility will be glad to know that the Support Class comes packed with five secondary abilities, rather than the usual three. According to the post, the abilities are as follows:
- Air Support Drone:
The Air Support Drone ability deploys a flying combat drone that protects the area indicated by the Support player and unleashes minigun fire on any enemies that get close.
- Spawn Beacon:
The Spawn Beacon ability sets up a temporary in-field spawn point for team mates. Spawn Beacons can be placed almost anywhere in the map, but it takes a while to install them and they’re vulnerable to enemy fire.
The Turret ability deploys a sentry turret that will automatically target enemies in its forward facing field of view. While not indestructible, sentry turrets are ideal for guarding choke points and defending mission-critical areas.
- Supply Box:
This ability lets Support Class players set up a Supply Box, which team members can use to stock up on health and ammo. The box can be destroyed by enemy players.
- Support Teleport:
The Support Teleport ability allows Support Class players to teleport directly to a team mate in need of medical or tactical assistance. The teleportation device has a lengthy recharge time after each use.
