Don't call it a pet class! Ring Runner's 4th Archetype: Arsenals
June 15, 2012
Arsenals can deploy tiny fleets of turrets, snare buoys, scanners, and repair drones. They can pool shields with their deployed entities, swap places with them, repair them, tug them along, and shepherd them in a variety of ways. But many Arsenal builds won't include a single turret, opting to fill their weapon bays with mines and rockets instead.
When it comes to firepower, Arsenals are number one, calling down cruiser strikes, firing off salvos, and deploying mine fields. But their massive payloads come at the cost of mobility. While other archetypes flee at the sight of an incoming barrage, Arsenals can stand their ground with a wealth of pro-active defensive abilities.
It's important to note that all archetypes have their own methods of survival, but Arsenals are designed to be able to stay put and deliver their offensive punch. This is not a passive process; it still requires pilots to react to incoming attacks.
Watch for a short teaser of our next archetype spotlight on Superiority Fighters. They offer the fast and precise gameplay that fans of space shooters have come to know and love.
