The Introduce of Machinist

The Machinist is known for ranged attacks, armed with the high-tech weapon, a special suit, and a drone. The Machinist's skills have four categories: Normal, Drone, Combo, and Sync. Normal skills are the usual ranged attack arsenal from guns to grenades. These charge the Machinist's Hypersync battery. Drone Skills are using firing missiles, lasers, and even baby drones to ranged attack on your enemies. Joint skills unleash powerful joint attacks through the Machinist and Drone working together. Sync skills can only be used when Hypersync is active, the uniquely powerful attacks unleashed by the high-tech suit.
