Hands on: Trooper

Charles Onyett at IGN has written a great article about the Tropper and his hands on experience. He was a bit sceptical at first, but as you can see, he changed his mind pretty fast.

At level 18, I feel silly for doubting the Trooper. After a large number of his abilities were unlocked, it became obvious this class was seriously dangerous. He can wear all armor types, though is best dressed in heavy gear to deflect as much damage as possible while he sprays blaster fire across battle zones. Initially his abilities aren’t especially exciting. He gets a Hammer Shot, his core attack, that fires off a volley without consuming his ammunition — his class-specific resource. Most of his abilities do consume ammo, which slowly regenerates as he fights, and can also be swiftly replenished with a recharge ability that’s limited by a cooldown.

He gives you a great breakdown of what you can expect from the class, ammo, skills etc. He also toch base with some other things like companions and his view of them as well as other aspects of the game. It’s a great read and I am hoping for more in-depth looks into all the classes soon. To read the article, go here.
