Templar Battleforce: v2.5.1 Pyro Engineer Lights it up!
It starts with a popping and a crackling noise and then a huge gout of flame envelopes the battlefield. Through the stench of sizzling xeno strides the Pyro Engineer, heaving a Pyro Turret into the fray.
This week's update rolls out 8 new Requisition levels in the Engineer branch of the Requisition, unlocking Flame Tank Armor, Hand-Flamer weapons, and 4 new Talents for your Engineers.
With four new Talents, you're Engineers have new capabilities to bring to the strike team. Deploying a Pyro Turret requires Flame Tank Armor and trades the Overwatch of a Sentry Turret for raging napalm on the field of battle.
Manual Vent is the Flame Tank Engineer's replacement for Heat Sink, an Area of Effect heat reduction that trades mobility for offensive power.
Scorch Order helps a Templar Engineer synchronize better with Hydras and their own Pyro Turrets. This Crippling Order doesn't require Flame Tank armor, but does make enemies more vulnerable to Fire Damage!
Finally, Turret Stance is the ultimate defensive stand -- completely preventing all movement but trading up for powerful offensive punch. Useful for Templars and Turrets alike, in the right situation it can double down on devastating firepower.
With new weapons, armor types, and relics juicily hanging off the new branch of the Requisition tree, you'll want to get out there and scoop them up quickly. To increase their allure, Flame Tank Armor can also be equipped by Hydras -- so if your squad already includes a flamey or two, don't miss this upgrade. Flame Tank Armors are lighter and more offensive focused than Hydra's existing Heavy Armor, but giving the scenario and your build, you may find them to your liking -- nothing like a piece of armor to add +Fire Dmg!
