Firefall's newest Battleframe is the Arsenal

Posted by: Sean Colleli at 8/27/2013 11:24 PM
Red 5 Studios has a new trailer for the latest addition to Firefall's Battleframe classes: the Arsenal class. The Arsenal appears to be essentially the game's tank class, with a variety of hard-hitting weapons for when subtlety isn't an option. Although the Arsenal can't heal itself, the class has a number of advantages in both PvE and Jetball game modes, as demonstrated in the trailer. If you'd like to test drive this new Battleframe, consider signing up for Firefall's open beta here.
