Killzone: Shadow Fall Support Class - Multiplayer Tips & Tricks

Updated on November 19, 2013

The Killzone franchise is one of PlayStation's most popular video game series. Killzone: Shadow Fall is only available for the PlayStation 4. It features both a robust single player campaign and multiplayer. The graphics have been improved since previous games thanks to the power of the PS4 system. There is better facial detail, texture, and lighting compared to previous Killzone games that were on the PS3 console.

What Is Support Class in Killzone: Shadow Fall Multiplayer?

The Support Class is one of three classes featured in multiplayer. The other two classes are the assault and scout. The support class's primary function is to help assist other players on the team. They can assist players in many ways. These include reviving players, setting spawn beacons, providing ammo, and deploying either a drone or a turret.

Killzone: Shadow Fall Multiplayer Tips & Tricks

Support Class Loadout

When choosing a weapon, stick to what you are most comfortable with. The Sta59B is a very good weapon, however. It's good for both close range and medium range. Accuracy becomes poor at longer ranges, but it's a good weapon for the support class. As for weapon sight attachments, use what makes you most accurate, whether it be the dot laser or holo sight etc.

The missile is a very good attachment to equip to your weapon in Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer. The missile locks on to either ground support or air support. It's quite powerful and usually only takes 1-2 shots to destroy something.

Support Class Abilities in Multiplayer

Reviving is the main ability of the support class in Killzone multiplayer. There are also secondary abilities that you can choose from, however. The 5 secondary abilities are air support drone, turret, spawn beacon, supply box, and support teleport. Out of all the secondary abilities, the spawn beacon can literally be a game changer. The spawn beacon sets up a temporary spawn wherever you place it on the map. Other players on your team can spawn from it. Spawn beacons are vulnerable to enemy fire, however.

Killzone: Shadow Fall Tips for Playing As Support Class

Placing Spawn Beacons

Setting up spawn beacons on the multiplayer maps can literally turn the tide of battle against your enemies. Place the spawn beacons near the objectives so your team mates do not have to travel as far. Just remember that enemies can destroy spawn beacons. Whenever possible, deploy a spawn beacon behind cover or somewhere less obvious on Killzone multiplayer maps.

Reviving team mates

Since you are a support class, the main advantage that you have is the ability to revive other players with the ''revive drone." Unlike assault, you should not go run-and-gunning all the time. It's much better to stay back a bit and offer assistance to other players who go down.

When you revive a teammate in Killzone: Shadow Fall multiplayer, they will be revived with full health, extra ammo, and granted a temporary 25% health boost. This is assuming they accept the revive. Other players can choose to not accept the revive.

Keep in mind, however, that there is a cool down time after reviving someone. You will not be able to revive another player right away so make sure you revive the most important player(s) first.

Killzone: Shadow Fall Multiplayer tips

Use High Ground

Take advantage of the high ground when playing maps on Killzone: Shadow Fall multiplayer. Generally speaking, you will have a superior advantage over enemy players. The reason for this is because you may be harder to see or shoot. It will also be easier for you to spot enemy players when on the higher elevated areas of the map. Standing next to cover will make you even tougher to spot if you take advantage of the high ground areas of the maps.

Don't Charge In, But Support Team Mates

Generally speaking, it's not a good idea to charge in on enemies when playing as the support class in Shadow Fall Multiplayer. Your main job is to revive other players and set up spawn beacons on the map. If you rush enemies all the time then you risk a greater chance of dying, which leaves you useless because you will not be able to revive players or deploy spawn beacons.

Stay close to your team mates, but don't try to do all the fighting like the assault class. As mentioned earlier in this article, those spawn beacons are very important so your team mates can spawn near objectives quicker!

Good luck playing as the support class in Killzone: Shadow Fall multiplayer!
