The reveal footage casts a lens on some of the primary abilities players can expect the Hunter to have. Interestingly enough, these look great for cooperative play-throughs, where you can be a viable member of the team and assist other Archetypes in eradicating incoming threats. The Hunter can trigger a skill that marks all nearby enemies, thereby improvising visibility and gaining an advantage on the battlefield.  

Not just that, but the rest of the members of your team are more likely to land critical hits when the Mark ability is activated. Next up, the second skill called Hunter’s Focus is even more calculated, allowing the Archetype to identify foes in the vicinity while aiming down sights. Last but not least, the Hunter’s Shroud ability is cool as heck. This one actually makes the player invisible while cloaking the character, so the enemies can’t really see them.
