Veteran Chem Dog
A Risk/Reward class that trades their health in order to fight aggressively, shrugging off effects that would halt others. Their tendency to pillage mid battle makes them resourceful, and their Nitro Chem gives them unique edges in combat.

Aura: Combat High
You and allies in Coherency gain 10% movement speed for 4 seconds whenever any of you kill an Elite enemy

Jury Rig Service: Gain an extra use from the medicae station once it’s depleted of charges
Chasing The Next Hit: Gain the ability to use Nitro Chem when it’s still on cooldown, using Nitro Chem in this way deals extra self damage

Ain’t Got Time To Bleed: Become immune to damage during the duration of Nitro Chem. Once Nitro Chem wears off, the damage taken is dealt over 4 seconds
Compared to the Sharpshooter, the Chem Dog is a much more front line oriented class, trading precision for raw damage output. They trade the efficiency of bonus weakspot damage and ammo generation for general DPS, perfect for quickly and easily taking care of specials and commons alike. A kit that’s not as reliant on ranged damage makes them a bit more versatile in how they play, encouraging a fearless commando rather than a sniper on overwatch.
