Assaults are the class that have heavy weapons along with heavy armor and a lot of health. Although not as maneuverable as the other classes, they make up for this by having the most powerful weapons. If paired with a medic this class is likely to dish out some serious damage.

From the official website:

This heavy weapons specialist is clad in the thickest armour available, allowing for a sustained presence on the open battlefield while laying down a withering barrage of explosive firepower.

The tallest class in-game.

StrategyEdit

The Assault's pivotal role is defined by it's specialty weapon, which often focuses on AoE's and destroying mechanical objects, and they can often outlast other classes through sheer damage reduction.

Strategy 1 - Tank

Tanks are the prefered strategy in cooperative pvp missions.

Pros: Tanks are flexible enough to adjust to any play style, and are very forgiving. The ability to simply outlast nearly anything that is thrown at you gives you the advantage of time, which gives other players a shot at going in and making the critical play.An inferno-x or helot minigun is the weapon of choice for tanks. A Healing Medic can have a field day with a Tank.

Cons: Tanks are not good at much else, and do not deal a large amount of damage in a short amount of time, and their Off-Hands may be too focused on immunity to attacks instead of getting rid of said attackers. This reliance on other players to do their dirty work for them may be troublesome if people get smart and attack the more death-prone players while ignoring the weaker (damage-wise) Tank.


Strategy 2 - Mechanical Destroyer: The Assault has many weapons focused on destroying Mechanical objects, such as turrets, med crates, etc. The Minigun works well, or conversely, a high level Assault can use the AfterShock Launcher, which does major damage to mechanicals, and it can be done all in one go, giving the Robotic no opportunity to come back from the damage. Their Off-Hands focus on mechanical damage or moving players away from mechanical objects, giving them the opportunity to destroy the buildings.


Pros: A Robotic nest is one of the most difficult things to overcome in PvP, and being able to clear a nest single-handedly is a great way for a team to push to an objective point. This single pro is a good reason to play a Mechanical based Assault.

Cons: Mechanical focused weapons often do much less damage than infantry based ones. Mechanical Destroyers often need support to keep infantry attacking opponents away from them while they do their job, and their weapons are often power hungry, and power is hard to come by during attacks on opposing bases.


Strategy 3 - Infantry Destroyer: Assaults can deal large amounts of damage with fire based attacks, and their mini-guns do up close and personal damage that most classes simply can not survive for long. Their focus will be on defeating players or holding off invading forces, and are best at holding defensive positions as most will not be able to stay in their wake of destruction. AoE centric infantry killers use the MagmaLance Recoilless Rifle while others may use the Inferno Cannon. Their Off-Hands are suitable toward grenades that deal damage to ground troops.


Pros: An Infantry centered Assault will rack up a lot of kills to invading forces, and a wandering Assault with a Medic can easily kill off any straggling forces before they get an opportunity to react.

Cons: Infantry based Assaults can not debuff mechanics, and it is often necessary to do so in order to overcome a Robotic's repair speed. Thus, they are not well-suited for pushing into a heavily defended point.


Strategy 4 - Unorthodox Hybrid: With the three strategies described above, often Assaults neglect their primary weapon, choosing to go with the specialty weapons instead. A Hybrid Assault can choose to have both powerful Primary and Secondary weapons, mixing up the two and using both to maximize damage and make them a threat regardless of the range they are at. For Mechanicals, having the GammaBurst Launcher with a MASER is a low-power cost option, the HeadHunter works well with a MASER, and the Tremor Launcher works well with a Stormer. Those that come close still have to deal with the Assault, and anyone that goes into Melee may find the Assault merely blocking their attack to slow them and then gunning them before they have a chance to get away.


Pros: Flexibility. Hybrid Assaults are just as good at attacking a point as defending it, and can make the most use of their weapons to maximize their damage output. They also have can deal a fairly high amount of damage that continues over a period of time. Hybrids make the best use of their limited power reserves. A Hybrid Assault can nearly always be on the attack regardless of support or not, and if combined with the proper weapons can still keep up the pressure regardless of the situation. Hybrid Assaults are dangerous at ANY range, and they often will switch to their primary weapon to finish the job.

Cons: A Hybrid isn't particularly powerful in any single area, and their actual damage output can pale in comparison to the more focused assaults who actually focus on what they should. That being said, an a defensive infantry based assault that does not attack when they do not have the majority of control points is not as useful as a Hybrid who is actively working to get a point back. Their Off-Hand power has to be sacrificed as well, and these short bursts are not as effective as other Assaults, making them go down fairly quickly if focused on.
