    Known Abilities and their class:
    Infiltrator: Flashbang, Cloak?
    Destroyer: Hover, Barrier
    Titan: Riot Shield, Whirlwind, Ammo Beacon
    Scientist:Repair Ray, Sentry, Shockwave?

    Of course, there have been quite a few changes to abilities in FOC, the main one being we can now have only one equipped at a time. This'll mean more strategy in choosing how we want our character to play. For example, Infiltrator got a nerf in the form of having to choose between Flashbang and presumably Cloak. However, Medic Scientists can now afford to go on the offensive without having to rely on only one truly offensive weapon. Also, individual abilities have been buffed. Barrier is now a bit curved, allowing for better protection on the flanks, and you can apparently shoot through it, making it much more effective as a defense.

    If you know any more about abilities in FOC, please post in this thread.

    Assume Grappling Hook is in, and Ammo Beacon.

    Also, assume some of the MP Exclusive Abilities will return.

    I think a scout with Grappling hook'll be mighty fun.

    I'm curious as to how useful the Riot Shield will actually be. Can you move with it? It just doesnt seem like a very useful weapon. Activating and Deactivating it will just leave you open to fire unless it has invincibility frames.

    I think it'll prevent you from taking damage while it is active.

    I'm totally using it.

    I think it'll work like grimlocks shield in singleplayer.

    Huh. I wonder how this single-ability deal will work for escalation... I loved sneaking up behind and enemy and unleashing a whirlwind.

    I think the grappling hook is sp only since I'm guess it requires special ledges that won't be put in the mp maps. On top of that what happens when a map is relatively flat.

    I've heard it's still in.

    Having one ability is definitely gonna mess up my play style. I'm going to have to rethink my strategies on each class now.

    Source? Where did you hear that?

    I'm liking the whole 1 ability. I wonder how many former Leaders from WFC will drop the class since War Cry probably isn't back.
