Hawken update brings new 'Raider' mech, weapons, server browser, more

Huge update brings long list of balance tweaks

Hawken has undergone a significant update which adds, amongst a long list of changes, a new mech called the 'Raider'.


The Raider (pictured) is a new close-quarters mech, which comes with new weapons and a new ability.

The Blitz ability increases your Raider's movement speed for several seconds. Plus, while Blitz is active it can fire your weapons while boosting forward.

The update also delivers a new map, a new server browser, and the introduction of taunts, along with a huge list of balance tweaks to all areas of gameplay.
