New Rogue – Cannon

Cannon grew up in Kansas City on a diet of action movies, pro wrestling, and barbeque. Following his dreams of operating a machine gun on an attack helicopter, he joined the Army but was too big for that role. Despite this setback, he proved himself one of the most reliable machine gunners within the Rangers before joining Rogue Company.

Strikeout – Spawn improvements. Combat fronts are back! We have reworked where the spawn locations are as well as added new areas to help prevent spawn camping.

The nerfs to Switchblade and Lancer were very much needed. The weapon changes overall are nice. Hopefully the monetary changes to tactical items will make support characters much more viable in higher level play, too.
