An overview of the Javelin suits that will make up your squad At launch
Type: Balanced n A versatile, all-purpose Javelin designed to be adequate at fulfilling multiple combat roles.
Ultimate Multi-target Missile Battery
A powerful volley of micromissiles that can target and obliterate dozens of enemies at a time with truly devastating concussive force.
Ranger is the first Javelin that each Anthem player will get their hands on and it will be used throughout the opening missions. This class inherits a variety of attributes from the other three Javelin models available at launch. It’s fast and precise, but doesn’t necessarily allow you to specialise in any one discipline.
Storm Type: tbc info: Mage
This Javelin uses elemental force to deal out damage from afar, working best when weaving through the air keeping distance from direct encounters.
EA is yet to detail the Storm’s super ability, but given that this suit’s focus in around a command of kinesis abilities we imagine it’ll be quite spectacular. Storm is designed for those that want to bring focus and balance to a squad. This suit will let you wield elemental power, maintain an agile low-level hover through the manipulation of kinetic energy and even teleport between short spaces to evade danger, although it does come with minimal armour protection to compensate for its massive utility on the field.
Type: Heavy n A walking tank, this heavy Javelin that can use its overwhelming strength to dominate close-quarters combat.
Ultimate siege cannon
This is to be used to decimate a powerful foe from the field quickly, dealing disgusting amounts of damage to a single target.
Colossus is for those players that favour heavy firepower and closequarters viability at the sacrifice of speed. The heavy construction of the suit’s chassis means it has superior armour and is best used to deal high-damage combos in conjunction with the other Javelins.
Type: rogue This Javelin suit is designed for those that love to cause problems, using speed to cripple and confuse groups of enemies.
EA has been keeping all details of the Interceptor close to its chest and as such, it is yet to reveal much more than its mere existence.
The Interceptor excels in getting in close to enemies, inflicting maximum damage, and then whipping away before they can react. It comes equipped with a variety of offensive and defensive capabilities, designed to let you support your squad mates in a number of different ways. It isn’t the strongest and it has little in the way of armour, but the Interceptor has unrivalled agility and evasion – a suit for players that have mastered the basics.
