The Hunter was the North's first Heavy Gear ever produced for the purpose of warfare. Prior to the Hunter, most combat-ready heavy gears were made by rigging construction gears with weapons. The Hunter is still in use today as the "Mark II", with the original design having gone through several generations of upgrades.

Shortly after its conception, the designs were stolen by agents of the Southern Alliance and were used to produce the Jager.

UsageEdit

The Hunter is the most common gear found in Northern forces partly due to it's rugged build and flexibility as well as it's low production cost. The Hunter can be equipped with a variety of weapons ranging from autocannons to bazookas. The hunter is most commonly found in General Purpose squads, but is also commonly placed in Fire Support squads, Dragoon Squads, and Strike Squads. Specific Squad designation depends on weapon loadout. If equipped with paratrooper equipment, Hunters can be placed in Paratrooper Squads as well.

While the Hunter is viewed as a flexible military asset, its main role on the battlefield is support regardless of weapon loadout. The Hunter is easily outclassed by heavier, more specialized gears, yet can hold it's own when it benefits from numerical superiority and equipped properly to handle their intended target.

VariantsEdit

The Hunter, like all gears, can utilize any weapon its frame can support. However Northern forces generally stick to specific weapon loadouts in order to maintain the unit's maneuverability by keeping the weight balanced.

StandardEdit

  • Equipped with a light autocannon, light rocketpack, anti-personel grenade launcher, vibroblade, and can use grenades and light panzerfausts.
  • The variant is used for general support, able to deal with infantry at close range, vehicles, light-to-medium gears, and in greater numbers - heavier gears and light tanks.

StrikeEdit

  • Exchanges it's light autocannon for a light bazooka.
  • This variant is more effective against medium gears, heavier gears, and light tanks than the standard loadout.
  • If used tactically, Strike Hunters can wear down heavier tanks and striders, but is still outclassed by their heavy armor and superior weapons.

GunnerEdit

  • Exchanges the light autocannon for a medium autocannon.

AssaultEdit

  • Exchanges the hunter's standard light autocannon and rocket pack with a light snub cannon. 

DestroyerEdit

  • Exchanges the Light autocannon of the base variant with a Medium Bazooka.

GrenadierEdit

  • Exchanges it's rocket pack for a grenade launcher.

Head HunterEdit

  • This variant is equipped with a command suite in order to fulfill a command role.

ParaEdit

  • Equipped with equipment to allow the gear to be airdropped onto the battlefield.
  • This variant sacrifices it's standard weapons except for the light autocannon and is armed with a spike gun to make it more effective in close combat.
