Prepare yourselves for launch this summer and take an in-depth look at the 4 new base classes (Assassin, Guardian, Combat Medic, and Assault) in Defiance 2050. Check out our Dev Update video to find a class that fits your playstyle and customize your very own Ark Hunter. Players can freely switch between other classes they have unlocked either through gameplay or by purchasing one of the Founder’s Packs. Look for a future in-depth look at the Demolitionist class, but for now let’s see what these starter classes are all about.
Assassin: Stealthy Slayer
Specialize in critical strikes, surprise attacks, and all-out damage as the deadly Assassin class! Sneak up on enemies with your innate Stealth ability and strike through with your Hidden Blade to cut them down.
Guardian: Defensive Protector
Hold the line and keep allies safe in the New Frontier as the valiant Guardian class. Put up a protective Barrier to block incoming fire and unleash a Shockwave that stuns foes in an area in front of you. Make a stand and significantly reduce damage taken with your Steadfast ability, then follow up with Taunt to have enemies to focus fire on you.
Combat Medic: Tactical Healer
Heal up wounds, save lives, and buff your squad as the vital Combat Medic class. You come equipped with a Healing Bot that follows you and supports your team. Use Inspire to increase your allies damage or grant them an EGO Refresh for greatly improved cooldown reduction on abilities!
Assault: Versatile Fighter
Become an all-around offensive and defensive Ark Hunter as the adaptable Assault class. Use the Sprint ability to get into the action or to make a smooth retreat out of danger! Dive head on for some devastating Super Melee attacks that will truly crush your enemies.
