Looks awesome. I still dislike that I can't mix rexo and regular rifles anymore...

Looks like they've tweaked the TR model a bit, it's closer to the concept now. Pretty mean looking.

Re: Heavy Assault Comm Link


Heavy Assault soldiers also have access to prototype Nanite Mesh Generators that temporarily reduce the velocity of incoming projectiles, decreasing their kinetic impact on the user.
I called this 2-3 weeks ago, you can see it in one of the GDC videos

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gd...tside-2/728283


2:57

TR Rexo with bright red shield that absorbs approximatley 20-22 Gauss rounds and the rexo still has full health (didn't break shield). The bright shield effect fades during the killcam and lasted 6 seconds on-camera, but it was already on before he came into sight. So we know this kinetic shield ability lasts at least 7 seconds or so currently.

And damn that TR Rexo model looks even better.

the 2nd part of the gdc video where the light assault drops a heavy assault in 2 secs seems to contradict the description especially the part where it says "their ability to endure heavy fire is no doubt legendary"

Is it just me or are the textures around the chest and shoulders looking a little low-res?

I proposed an ability like this a couple of months ago, but for the medic class. I thought in the GDC video, it was just more shielding, which in essence, it is.

What's really interesting is how much the HA sounds like a MAX. Can't wait to see what MAXes can do.

Misc Info
Re: Heavy Assault Comm Link


This is the first time I've been particularly concerned with what they're doing:
They're giving HA both the LMG and rocket at the same time. So HA gets the trifecta: AV capability, more health and a gun that's presumably stronger than the normal assault rifle. If they end up being able to carry the HA gun and Rocket at the same time...well what's the damn point of classes? We're back to HA/AV Rexo being a solomobile in all but their own medic ability.

This is especially concerning because we haven't seen any indication any of the lighter classes will have non-passive AV capability (that is the ability to project hurt to a vehicle, as opposed to waiting for it to hit a mine). No light AV guns for people or pulling the heavy AV at the expense of or downgrading the rifle.

Re: Heavy Assault Comm Link


The high capacity LMGs the Heavy Assault carries are capable of both short, accurate bursts and suppressing fire
I looked at the info thread and didn't see a mention of suppressive fire(meaning the blurring mechanic), so hopefully that's just marketing fluff.
