As part of our ongoing PAX East 2011 coverage, Leah Jackson got her hands on the multiplayer part of PC shooter Firefall recently, and here's how she described killing others with the newly revealed Recon "battle frame:"
"The Recon, as with the other two battle frames in the game, has three abilities and mainly uses a sniper rifle. The first and second abilities modify the Recon's gun: the first ability, resonating bolt, stuck an explosive to the target and after ten seconds it explodes a small radius potentially hurting the target's teammates if they were helping out nearby. The second ability, cryo bullet, coats the gun in ice and puts a slowing effect on anyone the Recon hits with it. The Recon can also lay remote land mines, and the sneakier ones managed to get me quite a few times. Curse you, Recon!"
