Latest Dev Diary Explores Class Roles & Armored Fighting Vehicles

Latest Dev Diary Explores Class Roles & Armored Fighting Vehicles - MMORPG.com

The latest in a series of Armored Warfare developer diaries has been published. In this latest journal, the team explores the role filled by the hotly contested Armored Fighting Vehicles. AFVs come in two types: Tracked and Wheeled, each with Light and Heavy designations. AFVs' special ability is to Designate Target for all teammates to target.

As was stated above, the primary role of the Armored Fighting Vehicles in Armored Warfare is scouting, or spotting (both terms are commonly used). Spotting is the act of making the enemy vehicles visible for your entire team so that vehicles that are further away or do not have the best spotting abilities can target them.

There are essentially two kinds of spotting:

  • Active spotting, where a vehicle uses its speed to spot the enemy while avoiding incoming fire
  • Passive spotting, where a vehicle attempts to stay hidden for as long as possible by standing still

If you're into learning more about AFVs and their role, head to the Armored Warfare site.
