Character Class Guide - 6th April 2020

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

VanguardSupportHeavyScoutSniperEach 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.
