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

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.
