Jump to: navigation, search

There are several classes available in Ace of Spades. Different classes have different weapons, tools and prefabs (prefabricated structures) available to them, as well as different attributes; for example, the Commando class has more health than the Marksman class, but the Marksman can jump higher and move faster. The class system is an important feature of Ace of Spades, with different classes having their own advantages and disadvantages, and uses in different situations.
