The Assasult class is the most used in any game, and the assault rifle is the most versatile gun allowing for any range of combat. Combine this with the shield and H.E.A.T. and you have an unstoppable force.
EGM’s TAKE: This H.E.A.T. weapon appears to be one that will need an awful lot of balancing and tweaking before it’s accepted by the community. The ability to prevent enemies from running and disabling weapons while causing damage makes it a must have item. There’s bound to be a lot of moaning on the forums about it being overpowered, so Ubisoft better have a back up plan ready.
