BioWare has updated its Star Wars: The Old Republic website with a closer look at the Bounty Hunter class.
According to the site: "Bounty Hunters do what it takes to cash in on their marks, utilizing the best in weapons and defensive technology to bring in the target – dead or alive. The technology your Bounty Hunter uses is up to you; choose to specialize in prototype shield and heavy armor technology to become an unstoppable Powertech, or spend those hard-earned credits on the most destructive arsenal available as a Mercenary."
Through the link, you can find out all about "orphaned computer slicing prodigy," Mako from Nar Shaddaa, who can tag along with your Bounty Hunter as a companion; find out more on the Rattataki species which is , apparently, "perfectly suited" for Bounty Hunting; and the the preferred Kuat Drive Yards D5-Mantis Patrol Craft for the class.
There's also a new video posted for the Bounty Hunter below.
