Brand new details have arisen regarding Killzone 2's online multiplayer, which, judging from these facts, looks to be quite deep.
A new badge system will allow users to mix and match abilities into primary and secondary spots to complement their play style. This keeps multiplayer fresh without having to adhere to a rigid class system. The primary badge defines the main role of the player character, as well as its outward appearance, while the secondary badge serves as a complementary ability that enhances the main role.
Here's the entire list of all Killzone 2 badges.
The default multiplayer character is assigned when no primary badge is selected. A secondary badge may still be added. Riflemen can start with most weapons, except for the specialized ones.
Primary badge ability - Sets up an automated turret which targets the enemy
Secondary badge ability - Repairs ammunition dispensers, mounted guns, and automated turrets
Primary badge ability - Revives downed team mates
Secondary badge ability - Throws a health pack, which can be picked up by other players
Primary badge ability - Uses a cloaking suit to become near-invisible
Secondary badge ability - Tags all on-screen enemy players with a hidden marker, which broadcasts their coordinates to team mates
Primary badge ability - Dons heavy armor twice as strong as normal
Secondary badge ability - Temporarily boosts running speed
Primary badge ability - Throws a coloured smoke grenade, which serves as a spawn point
Secondary badge ability - Requests air support from a sentry bot which targets the enemy
Primary badge ability - Assumes the disguise of a randomly selected enemy player
Secondary badge ability - Throws a sticky, proximity-activated C-4 charge

Thats good news, cause at least you can rank up with score points.
This will only be a decent game of 2009.

This system sounds very tactical, I reckon this is partly what MGO should have had as it requires 'deep' team work to succeed! This will be a great change to FPS on consoles!

Damn! KZ2 will OWN BADLY!

Simply love it.

Sounds cool. Hopefully there are ranks as well, I noticed Online FPS' without ranks tend to be boring after month of playing (UT3). But they definitley should add a harder ranking up system than CoD4. But these badges seem like a great way to add tons of teamwork. This game is gonna be excellent.

if they had rankings for each badge system it would prolong online playability a lot.

Wow.. I really want them to release a Beta now!

Im normally the type of person who would see additions like this as gimmicks (COD4 perks for example), but to be honest, these do sound extremely fun & could really change gameplay.
Use the right combinations and you will be a team to recon with. Lets just hope the maps and everything else work well with the character types.

CANT WAIT! The online is gonna own!

Wait, uhmm.. good combinations? Have you seen how BFBC players play together? They mostly don't. (thank you, guys, who sometimes do)
