Firepower on the BattlefieldEdit
"Handheld weapons are a key part of any multi-player shooter and DUST 514™ is no exception. Players are able to use different classes of weapon in different load-outs so that they can make meaningful tactical choices and respond to changing situations on the field of battle.
