The Grenadier, a Commando subclass in Richard GarriottÂs Tabula Rasa, is one of the foremost examples of shock troops. Using a variety of area-of-effect weaponry designed to obliterate anything in her path, she rushes into battle with heavy armor and a propellant gun (which is a fancy name for a flame thrower). They are designed to not only take a beating but dish one out. Ten Ton Hammer has updated the class guide to include changes brought in with Deployment 10.
Another Area of Effect ability? This one isn't based on adrenaline but on power and consumable micromech which will run you a few credits a piece. Each pump changes the type and amount of damage done, as well as increasing the damage radius from 5 meters up. You'll start with Pump 1 Physical and continue with Ice, Laser, Electric and Virulent.
