In Call of Duty: Ghosts Extinction, you and three others will fight off an alien infestation in the aftermath of the events that took place during the single player campaign.
You can go in blind hoping for the best, but the newly introduced co-op game mode will reward those who fulfill their duty in specific roles and work together as a team. You’ll be able to play as one of four classes, each with their unique ability and advantages.
Recently, developers Infinity Ward have detailed each class so you’ll know what you’re getting into when Call of Duty: Ghosts launches this November 5.
Check out the specifics below, and don’t forget to catch some of the latest gameplay showing off the new mode in action.
- 20% more bullet damage.
The Weapon Specialist focuses on one vital task: destroy as many aliens as possible. The extra bullet damage really comes in handy when dealing with heavily armored threats or when fighting back a swarm of smaller enemies. Weapon handling continues to improve as the Weapon Specialist gains levels.
- 25% more health.
The brute of the group, Tanks stand at the front and take hits that would otherwise knock out other, more fragile classes. The extra health lets you play more aggressively, getting into the thick of things and coming out alive. Additional levels further improve the Tank’s health in addition to their lethality.
- Provide armor for the drill and earn more bonus cash.
Without a functioning drill, your team will have a very difficult time progressing. The Engineer offers much needed protection to the team’s drill, incredibly useful during moments when you get overwhelmed. Drill maintenance and trap efficiency improve as the Engineer gains levels.
- Revive allies more quickly.
When things go wrong – and they will go wrong – the Medic’s there to pick up the pieces and get the team back in fighting condition. Fast revivals can mean the difference between success and failure, and an active Medic can help turn the tide of an intense battle. The Medic gains faster movement speed and powerful healing abilities with additional levels.
