Assault Marine (Assault)

Assault Marine


Space marine assault squads are intended to rapidly cross difficult terrain and sieze strategic positions, possibly even behind enemey lines. Assault marines are equipped with powerfull "Jump Packs" that use a combination of anti-gravity and jet thrusters to perform leaps hundreds of meters or several stories high.


Due to the necesity for keeping their equipment light weight Assault marines go into combat using a combination of Bolt Pistol and Chainsword, along with a few Grenades.


Use jump packs (pressing the SRINT and JUMP keys together) to evade the enemy and capture objectives behind their lines. Assault marines are vulnerable on the ground as their Jump Pack takes a few seconds to recharge between leaps. An indicator above the ammo counter shows as crossed arrows when the jump pack is ready to leap.
