Before you leap into the trenches, enable us to help by guiding you thru what, precisely, you’ll be able to count on from every of the sport’s core lessons. Some are comparable, and a few are much less acquainted. Here’s every thing it’s good to know in regards to the Support class.

Assault gamers ought to usually discover themselves accompanied by a assist participant who may help restock their lethal arsenal and maintain them wholesome – however Support can even dish out some ache themselves.
Support Class Weapons
The assist class doesn’t get entry to sub-machine weapons however they do get entry to some mild machine weapons.
