1. Combat Rigs
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is bringing back a vital feature to the multiplayer scene. Introduced as specialists in Black Ops III, Combat Rigs follows the same trend but takes it in a different direction. Combat Rigs are essentially hero characters that all adapt to a specific playing style.
Similar to Black Ops 3, the Rigs will have a super ability once the meter is charged. These options are called the Payload or the Trait. Both are opposite of each other, as the Payload acts as the Rig’s Super Ability, while the Traits are mostly passive. The Payload can be anything from a running robot dog (that runs on all fours) that is meant to deal a large amount of damage to the enemy’s team within the given timespan. On the other hand, the Trait are meant to be used more passively, like giving players a faster speed boost or allowing you to throw down a resupply kit for teammates to restock ammo.
There will be a total of six different Combat Rigs at launch, that all can be swapped on the fly, bringing a never before seen dynamic to the multiplayer scene.
