Killzone 3 Multiplayer Classes

The following will look at the abilities of the ENGINEER, MARKSMAN, TACTICIAN, INFILTRATOR and FIELD MEDIC classes, as well as their primary and secondary weapons. This information has been obtained from the KILLZONE 3 BETA.

 

ENGINEER
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
PRIMARY ABILITIES
Repair Tool
Repair damaged or destroyed ammunition dispensers, mounted guns and automated turrets.
Repair Tool+
Increases repair speed.
Repair Tool++
Hack enemy placed turrets, transferring ownership until the Engineer is killed or the turret is re-hacked. Stacks with previous abilities.

SECONDARY ABILITIES
Sentry Turret
Deploy a machine gun turret that will automatically target and fire at enemies in range.
Sentry Turret+
Turret’s firing rate is increased and can be deployed twice as fast as before.
Sentry Turret++
Deployed turrets can now track targets faster and are augmented with auto-fire rockets that fire every few seconds.

PRIMARY WEAPONS
M224-1A LMG
Friend to bunkered soldiers everywhere, the LMG’s iron sights and large clip size will make the enemy think twice before storming any position.
STA11 SMG
No other automatic weapon is better suited to close-range, in-your-face encounters than the StA11.
STA3 LMG
Accuracy is overrated. The StA3’s high rate of fire and large clip size will clear out a room in seconds. A formidable close-range weapon.

SECONDARY WEAPONS
STA18 Pistol
Standard issue semi-automatic pistol.
VC8 Shotgun Pistol
The best weapon for a close-quarters fight, nothing says ‘up close and personal’ like the VC8.
STA2 Battle Pistol

MARSKMAN
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
PRIMARY ABILITIES

SECONDARY WEAPONS
STA18 Pistol
Standard issue semi-automatic pistol.
VC8 Shotgun Pistol
The best weapon for a close-quarters fight, nothing says ‘up close and personal’ like the VC8.

Disguise+
In addition to being disguised, Infiltrators are undetectable by Engineer Turrets, Sentry Drones and Medi-Droids.

    looks great but how are you going to spot mines, shouldn’t that be part of an abitlity. the medic reviving people to over maximum health looks bad. the best thing about killzone 2 was it was the most balanced fps i’ve played. everything apart from the tactician looks more powerfull.

    Some abilities look a bit caotic, like the medic can have a drone, the tactician can call a drone, the engie can have a sentry… Looks like it is too much. Also the medic reviving where he died is stupid, it makes it easy to get a revenge kill. Just have to wait and see if all of that will work together.

    Medic have medi-dron that is weak, but fly with it’s owner.Tactician have stronger flying dron that fly at one place and engineer have staying turret and it’s very strong and at third level is very hard to destroy(it’ll kill you at the moment you see it :). It’s good that are lots of kinds of drons I have nothing to regret about this. Medic skill is to strong? Look at skills of anothers. engineer have very strong turret and opcion to hack another turrets. Infiltrator have never-ending disguise(if you kill someone in melee combat) and unlimited very fast sprint. Third weapons of engineer and tactician are very powerfull so why not to raise the strength of medic :)?

  2. Thanks for sharing such a fastidious thinking, piece of writing
    is pleasant, thats why i have read it fully
