Booster Classes

Implements a class system into the game as a replacement for the default Artifact/Booster system.

A diverse range of classes of varying sanity are available to suit many playstyles. Build a team that complements each other and tackle your next challenge.

Should be compatible with custom rundowns that do not override the booster system, but currently this will require a manual install.

Currently, this mod comes packaged with a copy of Prisoner Armamentarium to make the melee/foam focused classes more interesting. It will by default load you into a copy of Rundown 5 (ext) with all maps unlocked. I'm currently trying to decouple the two whilst having them still be compatible (sorry!).

I hope you enjoy this mod as much as I did brainstorming it!

The Rules (Please Read!)

The games booster system will be replaced with a class/subclass system.

  • Your Muted boosters will be filled with Base Classes.
  • Your Bold boosters will be filled with Subclasses.

You must choose both a base and a sub class (or no class at all).

You must choose a subclass that aligns with your base class - this is determined by the three letter code at the start of a booster's name. For example, if you select the "PTH - Pathfinder" base class, you can choose between the "PTH - Lightbringer" or "PTH - Scavenger" sub-classes.

In the rare case where a class states it has three parts (name will include "1/3" "2/3"), you also need to take the Aggressive booster that corresponds to that class. Currently this only applies to Masochist.

The Classes

  • Striker - Aggressive class that takes very high amounts of damage but can fully regenerate all health.

    • Berserker - Melee focused sub-class that forgoes gun damage for low health 'berserker' buffs and insane melee damage.
    • Skirmisher - Flexible guerilla-style sub-class that's designed to run laps around enemies whilst thinning them out.
  • Squad Support - Support class that is more effective with foam and mines, and has varied sub-classes. Class penalty varies.

    • Resupplier - More bullets. Gain the ability to distribute more gun/tool ammo to the whole team.
    • Combat Medic - Heal and revive more effectively. Get high damage reduction while you have a resource pack out so you can sprint over for that clutch revive.
    • Lockdown Specialist - Do you like foam? Your foam is stronger when used against enemies, freezing small enemies with one glob. Your mines are also stronger.
  • Engineer - Turret specialist that gains benefits when hacking tool is out. Does less damage with guns.

    • Hacker - Give the finger to those hacking minigames. More importantly, shorten terminal/scan events when you have your hacking tool out.
    • Overclocker - Taking your hacking tool out will supercharge your sentry.
  • Pathfinder - Infection-resistant exploration specialist. Gains benefits with consumables and biotrackers. Loses a hefty chunk of starting ammo/tool.

    • Lightbringer - Embrace the glowstick. Turn your flashlight off and stay near your amped glowsticks to gain buffs.
    • Scavenger - Consumable specialist. Become completely immune to infection and take all the drugs you want. Beware - foam launchers won't function in your hands. Grenades, on the other hand...
  • Marksman - Firearm specialist. Deal more - but take more - damage.

    • Point Defense - Gain buffs when doing scans, and help them progress faster.
    • Afterburner - The bottom of your magazines do incredible damage. However, you'll take more damage while wielding your melee or a (near) empty gun.
  • Sniper - Long-range specialist. Do more damage and shrug off projectiles - as long as you can stay away from your foes.

  • Tank - Beefy frontliner. Gain damage reduction at the expense of firearm damage.

    • Vanguard - Hammer every nail. Get tankier and do more damage with your melee weapon out.
    • Paladin - Stay near your allies to gain more damage reduction, and support them with improved healing/reviving.
    • Flycatcher - Eat projectiles for breakfast. When low health, take your hacking tool out to heal from enemy projectiles. Careful though - at the same time you'll take far more melee damage.
  • Duskwalker - Walk safe in the dark and pick your fights. Gain huge damage reduction when your flashlight is off - but also deal very little damage and progress scans slowly. Learn to quickly 'dodge' attacks by going dark. Your foam less plentiful but incredibly potent - use this fact to render giants safe to kill.

    • Spectre - Firearm damage is amped when you turn your flashlight on. Time your assault correctly or face the consequences of taking heavily magnified damage.
    • Assassin - Have reduced firearm damage, but deal very heavy melee damage with your flashlight on. Taking hits with your flashlight on is less punishing than on Spectre.
  • Masochist - Embrace the pain. Enemy attacks will heal you (10 from shooters and 20 from strikers). However, go over 80% or under 40% health and the next enemy attack will instantly kill you! Stay in that safe health range by finding other creative ways to take damage (there are quite a few). Or, if you're insane, stay in the danger zone to take advantage of a humongous damage buff...

How to install:

Using R2Modmanager is simplest.

Manual install:

* Navigate to your rundown's plugins/xxx/custom folder (create the custom folder if necessary), and paste the CustomBoostes folder.
* Make sure to also install Custom Boosters and MTFO.
