Invisible to the Naked Eye
The Astrek Association’s AA-R4 “Raptor” is the support frame to complement Astrek’s other, offense-heavy battleframes. Several evasion systems have been integrated into this battleframe, making it difficult to track in the chaos of a firefight.
Although the Raptor is more than capable of defending itself in a fight, its primary role is that of a long-range support. To that end, it has been outfitted with a number of secondary support systems.
Exclusive Perk - Conduit - Successfully hitting with the Raptor's primary weapon grants an electrical charge. Upon reaching three electrical charges, the Raptor's abilities become Empowered and gain additional benefits or effects.
SIN Scrambler - A specialized round fired from the Raptor’s Charge Rifle, the SIN Scrambler confuses enemy radar and fools the opposition into thinking that the Raptor’s target is hostile. When Empowered, the Raptor's target also takes increased damage.
Power Field - Designed to support the Raptor’s allies when deployed, the Power Field will Superchage any ally that passes through it, increasing their ammo capacity and rate of fire temporarily. When empowered, the Power Field also causes allies' weapons to charge faster.
Teleport Beacon - A quick escape for a Raptor that finds itself in danger, the Teleport Beacon allows the operator to instantaneously warp from one location to another. When Empowered, the Raptor also gains a massive movement speed bonus for a short time after teleporting.
Overload (HKM) - The Raptor is also capable of channeling its energy directly into the Charge Rifle, allowing the operator to fire bolts of electricity which not only damage the target, but also nearby allies. The extra energy also allows the Charge Rifle to recharge more quickly. While Overload is active, all of the Raptor's abilities are Empowered.
Raptor operators utilize a Charge Rifle, a long-range sniper rifle, to thin enemy numbers from afar. When scoped, the Charge Rifle charges its shots to deal more damage based on the charge time.
