Gears Tactics: All character classes confirmed for PC and Xbox exclusive

Gears Tactics is coming next month, and we finally know more about the game's character classes.

Gears Tactics launches next month, and thanks to recent previews we know a little more about how this turn-based tactics title will play.

One element we now know about is the character classes we'll be able to choose from.

Here's all we know.

Gears Tactics Character Class Guide

The following character classes will be available in the game at launch:

  • Vanguard
  • Support
  • Heavy
  • Scout
  • Sniper

Each will offer four different skill trees, offering both passive and active skills to customise your soldier and their load-outs.

Each also has a defining weapon. So far we know that the Support class offers the chainsaw lancer rifle, while the Scout gets the Gnasher. We can hazard a guess that Snipers will be able to use the Longshot, while we also know that Vanguard gets to use the Retro Lancer, complete with bayonet.

Each weapon allows for its own finishing move, too, so expect each class to have their own repertoire of executions.

You can also customise each character visually.
