Class Operation and Settings:
Q. I dont understand the differences between the different Classes. Can you explain them to me?
A. Sure can! Below I will short list all of the Classes as well as their special abilities:
-Spec Ops: The Spec-Ops class is the eyes and ears of the battlefield. His silent footsteps and faster run speeds allows him to get the drop on the enemy quickly and effectively. His special ability Signal Scan allows him to briefly see enemy targets across the entire battlefield to coordinate an attack.
-Pointman: The Pointman class is the first man through the door. Armed with an assault rifle and a secondary shotgun he is prefect for breach and clear in many situations. His special ability is a clip of Heavy Hitter ammo which deals extra damage at the cost of additional recoil. Remember to fire in controlled bursts, Soldier!
-Demoltions (EOD): The Demolitions class is in charge of arming and disarming objectives. He can do this faster than any other class on the battlefield. His ability, Tank Stance, lets him absorb an extra amount of damage at the cost of run speed. Be careful and watch your back!
-Heavy Gunner: The Heavy Gunner class is in charge of laying down suppressive fire with his heavy machine gun. Using his bipod or Support Stance while prone he fire with increased accuracy at the cost of maneuverability and field of view.
-Sniper: The Sniper class is the intelligence Operator on the battlefield. Equipped with a variety of long range sniper rifles and a G18 for CQC he can take down targets at both extreme distances as well as short range. Using his bipod while prone he can spot enemies for his team at the cost of maneuverability and field of view.
-Assaulter: The Assaulter class is the meat of the operation. They are the core soldier in any Tier 1 unit. Equipped with an assault rifle they can take down enemies and clear buildings quickly and effectively. Armed with a 40MM grenade launcher as his class ability, he can bring the hurt on enemy emplacements.
Q. This guy, Just. Wont. Die!
A. Are you sure he isnt the Demolitions (EOD) class? Demolitions (EOD) can use his Tank Stance ability to absorb extra damage. Try switching to Pointman and using his Heavy Hitters class ability to counter it!
Q. The game menu is incredibly hard to navigate.
A. We are listening to your feedback and we are streamlining both the in-game and front end menu navigation based on this. We are also decluttering the front-end and simplifying where and how we present menu options.
Q. Please fix spawning. I keep getting spawned close to an enemy.
A. We have fine-tuned the spawn process and it will be deployed in a future fix.
Q. The red outline around enemies is far too long that it seems unfair.
A. The duration of the red avenger outline will be reduced in a future fix. The red outline is not present in the Real Ops playlist.
