The second heavy class kit in Aliens: Fireteam Elite is now ready for action. The Season 3 update introduces the Lancer - a class kit with abilities that can deal huge amounts of damage.

If you’re into using lasers to decimate some alien scum, you’ll love the Lancer’s Particle Lance ability. This unleashes an extremely hard-hitting laser beam to a single target after a short charging period. Onslaught fires a single blast but decreases fire rate and movement speed. In exchange, using it increases damage output and removes the need to reload temporarily.

The Lancer is available for all and is immediately unlocked after updating the game. This class kit comes with 21 perks that can be obtained through normal gameplay or purchased with credits. Two additional perks, Omniscience and High Impact Fire, are coming in a future patch.

Aside from the Lancer, the UACM Frontline pack is now available for free to those who have the deluxe edition of Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Alternatively, you can purchase the DLC individually for $9.99. The UACM Frontline pack contains the following:
