Killzone: Shadow Fall Support class detailed, Revive Drone gives temporary health boost
Authored by Alex Co
Guerilla Games has revealed what it calls the “most versatile” class in Killzone: Shadow Fall, the Support class.
- 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.
According to Guerilla, the primary ability of the Support class is the “Revive Drone.” It deploys a hovering medical robot that can help out critically wounded teammates, and those who accept medical treatment “will receive full health with additional ammo and a temporary 25% health boost. They also avoid losing a life and having to start over from the spawn point.”
Killzone: Shadow Fall is set for release on November 15 exclusively on the PlayStation 4.
