Recently games such as Ghost Recon Online, District 187, Arctic Combat and now Born To Fire has open there servers for players. Each game with unique aspects to it, Born To Fire is certainly leaning towards the unique side of the FPS world. From the site that has just bought AVA, Aeriagames now has a new FPS MMO on the market.
Behind the story, as sometime in the future the United States and Russia have become enraged in an all out war against eachother. With no mercy present, the war will be never ending as only the toughest will stand. Get ready to fight because when two sides fight, someone has to die.
Born to fire has to be one of the most unique games on the market with the class orientated FPS. Similar to games like Battlefield, where it has a medic, engineer, sniper, and support class with each individually unique according to what they do, Born To Fire has 5 unique classes. Depending on how you play, what weapons you have and even how your character looks, Born to Fire has something for everyone. Not only will you have a choice to choose classes but you will have a great variety of clothing to make yourself look good. Killing your enemy with style never looks so good.
Also there are some things that are similar to Crossfire, things such as the replay feature where if you are a youtuber you can upload replays of a match with ease. Furthermore, it has a unique shooting range which should help players test out which guns they prefer. Having dummies jump, move and even evade will help you finalize your decision in choosing the perfect weapon. This option is a great option because no longer will we players have to kill someone and pick up there guns.
So now to the main focal point, the character classes:
The ranger, which is basically a soldier with an assault rifle is highly adaptable to any situations. Whether it is Close quarters or even 100 feet away, an assault rifle user will be versatile at all ranges. This is my all time favourite class no doubt because when I play ingame, I hope that I am able to fight up close and at a distance. Whether I am faced with incoming enemies or trying to pop that 1 hit headshot, I have a decent chance of winning at all situation. This class is highly preferred for players who like strong and reliable weapons that can be used at all ranges. Their "special" attachment or an equipment that is unique towards their class is the red dot sight which is automatically attached to all assault rifles. This is the only class that can use a red dot sight which helps aid in accurate firing.
The Sniper, which is pretty much a high 1 hit kill rifle is highly deadly at long ranges. But the down side, snipers fire at a very slow rate which can be reduced with quick scoping. When the situation arises when you are at close range, be prepared to fire that one hit kill bullet, or else if you miss could mean the end of your life. Snipers are well known for the deadly capabilities at long ranges in any game. Due to the one hit kill potential and high accuracy, the sniper is the best weapon for long range battles. It is a fact that there are many snipers taking advantage of the high kill potential, so will you join the hype? This is the only class that can use a high optical scope that can be used for long range.
Heavy Fire EX, is one of the more generic classes that I have seen ingame. With the characters deadly capability of using a light machine gun, reloading doesn't seem to be a problem when faced with multiple enemies. Unless you fired a couple of rounds before charging the enemy head on. Instead of a secondary pistol, this character uses a RPG which to my standards is believed to be one of the most deadly secondary weapons. Deadly in a sense of firepower. This class throws a wall of flame to help scare and prevent enemies from advancing. Although enemies can still advance and take damage while being on fire. But what is truly interesting to me is that the heavy class has the ability to fight long range. With the help of the bi-pod (crouching to activate), gives him a steady chance to fire accurately at all ranges. Often times the heavy class is left astray with high recoil while firing with the LMG, but in this game if your a fan of the LMG then here is your chance to dominate enemies with accuracy.
The Point man class, I gotta say that they are truly interesting character to play. If you have played games like Urban Chaos for the PS2 then you will know what I am talking about. Wielding both a impenetrable riot shield and a shotgun this class is to be reckoned with at close range. Shotguns are deadly at close range, which similarly to the sniper can be a one hit kill. But Born to fire makes this class even more deadly by equipping him with the riot shield. Tanking shots and actually seeing your enemies scatter in fear never look so exiting through the riot shield. But be warned taking too much hits with the riot shield can result in it suddenly breaking, leaving you vulnerable in your situation. This has to be one of the more unique classes seen in game. Rather than in Call of duty or in Urban Chaos, now you are set up with a riot shield and shotgun combo which can fire accurately without switching. What I mean about switching is that by just holding your riot shield, you can left click with the shotgun (or his signature magnum revolver) and fire shots instantly while you dual wield both weapons. This class can be great if you head in the battlefield and use your riot shield to not only kill but to see who is aiming for you.
Now for the most interesting and most played class in the game, the Dual Gunner. With her, and I mean her because she is the only female character in the game, will dual wield and kill you with style. Dual wielding sub-machine guns and the glock-18 as a secondary, this class can really put it out in firing an insane amount of bullets at close quarters. Not only will she be great at close quarters this class has the ability to heal, which is quite unique towards the game. This also brings a huge tactical gameplay towards the game as players will now want to team up with healers. So by also putting a female character, there is a greater chance that females will be attracted to the game. This brings a good variety towards the game with her deadly looks, and with her advantage at close range with healing capabilities there is no wonder why this is one of the most played class in the game.
So Born To Fire has just recently been launched and is well on its way to the closed beta season, but with the ideas and class oriented FPS, I feel that this game brings a variety of fun when playing with friends. With five classes to choose from both the fun and the competitive world, this game will make you think about choosing your favourite class. With the option to even change while mid game, the thought of using different characters according to how situations arises make it more interesting. With a bunch of character customization and weapons that is unique towards a character, there is no shortage of style in the game. Every character to my surprise has a different clothing style, primary and secondary weapon and even the melee. Choosing the great aspects of each class such as the riot shield, assault rifle, sniper, LMG and even dual SMGs will help you figure out what character you want to play, and how you play it. Well expect to see a review soon on the game, and hopefully you will have an idea on what class you want to choose! Remember you can always change so don't worry.
