    Yes, that's it. 5+ ARM, S5 and 2W+NWI/Dogged

    Isn't this just a wishlist / inferrence from the pic? Have we even seen "super heavy infantry"? Kiel Saan isn't one, Kriza isn't one, neither is Taskmaster, Ratnik or Blackjack.

    Kiel Saan, Ratnik and Blackjack are special cases (though I really hope that Lo-Tech skill will get scrapped in N4), and both Taskmaster and Kriza fit the description (I deem the NWI/Dogged part unnecessary. Yan Huo is still an SHI without them, for example). And yeah, it's purely a wishlist based on unit's picture.

    Hopefully something more interesting than that (Gamma is a perfectly good unit, just a bit boring), but the presence of ML indicates that at least weapon choice will be different.

    No one interested how linkable will be those gunslingers and how useful will be them (or Hospitallers) in single sectorial ?

    I am impressed on how off topic you managed to go, next time go to off topic directly or better on a more relevant socio-politico-economic forum...

    Okay the N3 Profile is 38, which is way too expensive.
    Since the C1 version is 2 points, but he gained Dogged and Berserk etc I assume we're looking at just shy of 30 in N4, which sounds pretty alright to me.

    I've got a feeling that it WILL be Trenchhammer in N4 too, it is just a DA ccw for the sake of Code1's simplicity. (As the knives are simple CCWs in C1 too)

    as discussed above, Multi rifle + trench hammer is effectively useless.

    Erm how? You can't ues MR in melee while you can the hammer. Yes it is disposable and the throw aspect is useless, but still gives you DA ammo in melee.

    okay... why not just give him a DA CCW then? it would be cheaper and less confusing than giving him a Trench hammer + Shock CCW

    That is a good question. Perhaps to nerf his Berserk potential by only having DA ammo for 3 swings?

    Trench hammers are ridiculous, both fluff-wise and rules-wise. These things belong in a Privateer product, not Infinity.

    Man, Gunnar is really looking bad when compared to Adil.

    Dogged vs NWI
    Specliast Op. VS CoC /Spec. Op. + Veteran L1
    Trench Hammer vs Mono + Electric Pulse
    PH14 (with no Grenades) vs Sensor + Number 2
    Chain Colt vs 2 Nanopulsers ^^


    PanO Spec Op syndrome strikes again.

    It's the same with Kriza Boracs in Serbian, they have Warcors from basically every country they have represented in the game but they still google translate stuff like this instead of just asking.

    Neither of them are walking away if they get into CC with each other, but Gunnar is much more likely to make the trade. Adil has some nice kit, but Gunnar has a lot going on himself. Hes actually a CC specialist who is scary in CC. We also have sensor on one of our other profiles so it's not so bad to be missing it on the CC guy. I'm happy with Gunnar being a big dumb smashy lummox.

    Also, community achievement to the first person to kill a heckler in CC with the ban hammer.
