XCOM 2 to get new Technical class with Long War 2 mod

Pavonis Interactive (formerly Long War Studios) have released a few more details about their upcoming Long War 2 mod for XCOM 2. Today’s information pertains to a new Technical class solider that’ll be introduced by the mod expansion.

The Technical’s ‘Gauntlet’ weapon combines rocket launcher and flamethrower into one handy, wrist-mounted device. Their ability tree allows specialisation in one or the other of those weapon types. Go for the flamethrower if you favour close-quarters attacks in XCOM 2, and the rocket launcher for ambushes and other distance attacks. The blurb implies that the rocket launcher will, ultimately, become more than a single shot weapon.

Long War 2 doesn’t seem to have any definitive release date yet, but presumably isn’t too far away since the developer has started publishing these pre-release details. Here are some screenshots of the Technical.
