Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Ghost Recon Online, which focuses on the Assault class, the second of the three classes.

The assault class can choose from a myriad of roles stealth, support, or any other roles deemed necessary.

The assault rifle and shotgun will be your weapons of choice in this instance. The class will face the most fire as they tend to fight on the frontlines, which is where your class weapons and equipment will come in handy.

Use the TS3B Shield with exoskeleton to ward off enemy fire as you engage in close combat using a speed boost. You can also bash enemies in the face with it, knocking them prone and ready for a kill. As you level, so will your shield.

There’s also the microwave area denial system, or H.E.A.T. if you will, which when deployed, make the enemy a bit useless and unable to run or fire their weapons. It can be upgraded as you level as well.

Ghost Recon Online is slated for release later this year.
