Killzone: Shadow Fall’s Scout class detailed

Killzone: Shadow Fall’s Scout class detailed

Guerrilla Games reveals new info of the stealth class.

Are you excited about Killzone: Shadow Fall? Well, you should, it looks like one of the best next-gen games, and it’s arguably the best of what we’ve seen so far.

But cutting to the chase, were you playing the Marksman in Killzone 3? You can continue in Shadow Fall, albeit with a few changes.

The developer describes the class as a stealth one, and a long-distance fighter. They’re suited for lone wolf-gameplay, and are armed with the Cloak ability, which renders them invisible, and the tradeoff is you can only use a knife while cloaked. Its three secondary abilities you can choose from are:

  • Tactical Echo
    The Tactical Echo ability lets Scout players send out a radar pulse that temporarily highlights all enemy troops and automata within range – even other Scouts using the Cloak ability. This information is then relayed to allied HUDs and radars.
  • Emergency Teleport
    Based on the same technology that lets Spawn Beacons to teleport troops into battle, the Emergency Teleport ability allows Scout players to teleport to a random part of the map when they run into trouble. However, the teleportation device has a lengthy recharge time.
  • Stun Drone
    The Stun Drone ability deploys a flying combat drone that waits in an area until it
    detects an enemy nearby. When attacking, it flies directly at the enemy and detonates an E-Pulse that temporarily blinds and stuns them.

Thanks for the info, Guerrilla Games!
