The official inventory of the Insurgent Pack’s new content has been listed below.

The Insurgent – a brand new class with two unique abilities: Hack and Steal.

  • The insurgent starts with just a pistol and his wits about him. As vulnerable as he is, he can slowly build up his arsenal in the game by using [Steal] to steal weapons and abilities from downed enemies, which enables him to use those weapons throughout the game, even if he falls in combat. By Using [Hack] he can change enemy ground automata into friendlies, turning the tide of battle quite swiftly.

3 New Abilities – The Scout, Support and Assault also get additional abilities

  • E-Pulse emitter – a deployable beacon that sends out an e-pulse making it difficult for enemy units to install automata in that area

  • Tactical Echo emitter – a deployable beacon that send out a Tactical Echo from a fixed location making the area hard to infiltrate by hidden enemy units

  • Guard Drone – The Assault gets a stationary Buddy drone; deploy it in one place and it guards the location from a ground level.

3 New Weapons – Welcome old friends and new with this pack of weapons for the Scout, Assault and Support:

  • M82 – the classic assault rifle of choice from Killzone 2 and 3 is back!

  • L512 SMG Pistol – this amazing machine pistol makes your tactical secondary weapon of choice that much more punch

  • Sta14 Rifle – The sniper rifle of many battles past adds to your long distance sniping arsenal.
