Firestarter Faction Blazes Its Way Into the Game

Firestarter Faction Blazes Its Way Into the Game - MMORPG.com

Gaijin Entertainment has announced that the latest Crossout faction, Firestarter, has entered the game along with the 0.90 update for PC. Firestarters will arrive on console next week. As the name implies, Firestarters worship fire and players who ally with them will be "rewarded with new vehicle parts that can turn any battlefield into a scorched wasteland".

Besides their arsenal of weapons, the Firestarters possess impressive machinery, such as a giant pair of blades called the ‘Meat Grinder’. This unusual contraption, placed on a vehicle chassis like a pair of wheels, allows Firestarters to move at equal speed in any direction - and even strafe sideways! Dealing damage on contact, the ‘Meat Grinder’ and other close-combat weapons are ideally combined with the ‘Harpoon’ gun, which allows players to grab a hold of other vehicles and prevent them from escaping. And with the new Firestarter cabin, ‘Werewolf’, players can claw victory from defeat, as it houses a small, wheeled drone strapped full of explosives. Launched upon destruction of the own vehicle, it gives the player 10 seconds to seek revenge by detonating it against an enemy in a daring kamikaze attack.

Other 0.90 changes include longer PvP matches for players past level 10. Objective captures have also had the time requirement increased by 50% to provide more tactical opportunities. 

You can learn more on the Crossout site.
