The gloves have come off and guns have been drawn as Killercombo revealed Elsword Online’s final class transformation today, the Tactical Trooper. Based on an upgraded version of the character Chung’s Shelling Guardian class, the Tactical Trooper is no doubt the result of some designer’s mad scribbles on a napkin which simply read “needs more explosions.”
While the words, “tactical” and “explosions” may not seem to jive together when describing the same thing, the Tactical Trooper gracefully manages to combine more firepower with an added sense of utility. As a Tactical Trooper, Chung’s over-sized cannon can fire from both directions with additional range, allowing players to support their allies from across the battlefield.
Chung can also fire additional siege shots at an increased rate of fire before reloading or she can opt to enter into “Mobile Armored Mode” which points the butt of his gun towards his enemies and fires slower, but stronger explosive shrapnel shells for a limited time.
In addition to his own increased damage, Chung now also has access to several supportive skills he can deploy to aid his allies in battle and boost his own defensive capabilities. Chung can summon an automatic mortar to aid in dispatching enemies or create a force field which boosts MP regeneration of all those inside and provides a massive defensive boost.
The new Tactical Trooper will be available to players starting at level 35. For more information be sure to check out the official Elsword page which comes complete with a handy Manga detailing the latest developments in Chung’s backstory.
