A new Division class has joined the ranks of Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer, specializing in completing objectives rather than killing enemies.
The new class is called the Cavalry, and it is themed around capturing and holding down objective points more effectively. The Cavalry’s first unique class skill is a shield that can deflect incoming damage, while the second skill lets users ram into enemies with it. As the shield takes up the class’s primary weapon slot, the Cavalry is allowed to carry a primary firearm in the secondary slot. The third skill gives the character “improved objective capabilities”, which includes planting bombs, capturing zones, and building/destroying walls in War mode faster. The final skill for the class earns the Cavalry extra score for completing objectives, and also makes every two assists count as a kill.
The Cavalry was introduced in the game’s recent 1.18 update, which also brought with it three new basic training perks. The first perk, called Escalation, gives a buff to the player’s aim-down-sight speed directly following kills, with multi-kills instantly refilling the gun’s magazine. The second perk, Wanderlust, may be the craziest basic training perk in the game so far, as it has the player spawn with a random weapon that can have up to six random attachments, and switching weapons always pulls out a new gun. Prestiging the Cavalry class grants access to the third skill, Specialist, which lets the player unlock three basic training perks instead of scorestreaks, with a score of 800 unlocking every basic training perk in the game, although this resets after death.
Update 1.18 dropped in tandem with the PS4 release of WWII‘s new United Front expansion. While the free update is now live for PS4 and Xbox One players (and coming to PC next week), the DLC won’t drop on Xbox One and PC for about a month. The expansion adds three new multiplayer maps to the game, one of which is based on the famous Battle of Stalingrad, along with a new War mission and a new Zombies experience called “The Tortured Path.”
Fans may want to take advantage of WWII‘s more flexible DLC offerings while they can, because when Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 drops later this fall, the new shooter will take an all-or-nothing approach with its post-launch content. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is slated to launch October 12th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
