“ The Marauder has superior firepower in short-range situations by using dual SMGs and handguns. He sacrifices his secondary weapon slot in favor of more ammo for his primary weapons. „ —Description
The Marauder is a soldier class in Modern Combat 5: Blackout, introduced in Update XXII.
Modern Combat 5: Blackout[edit | edit source]
The Marauder is a fast and agile class designed for close-range combat which wields a set of dual pistols or SMGs, giving it the potential for an extremely high rate of fire, albeit with high recoil and difficult accuracy. While it lacks the radar skills of the Recon class, the Marauder generally has far superior firepower and potentially one of the fastest time-to-kills in close-range engagements when using high-tier weapons. The Marauder also has skills which reduce damage taken from opponents and increase accuracy and damage dealt, further increasing its killing potential.
The Marauder class can only be acquired by purchasing the Marauder Bundle for 900 Credits. But during offers, it can be purchased at half the price
i.e. 450 Credits

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Marauder class was likely inspired by the Reaper class from Overwatch.
- A teaser video of the Marauder class implies the class was intended as a potential counter to the Kommander class (its high speed and fast time-to-kill at close ranges potentially makes it a viable option for flanking a Kommander)
- The Marauder is the only premium class in the game which is capable of picking up dropped weapons.
