Aliens: Fireteam Elite has done fairly well for itself, topping UK physical sales charts at launch. But it’s only just getting started as Season 1 goes live today for all platforms. Free for all players, it adds the new Phalanx class, a tanky fighter who uses a shield to block damage and shots. Check out his skills below.

The Phalanx’s shield can be toggled freely and absorbs damage from the front, making it idle for narrow paths. This doesn’t make you immortal though as acid from Xenomorphs and explosions, along with attacks coming from behind, can still hurt you. While the class is restricted to hand guns and other close encounters weaponry (like the shotgun), their passive allows for increased damage for each attack blocked.

Another useful ability is Shock Pulse which will deploy an electric pulse and stun nearby enemies (which makes it great against Synthetics). You can either increase the damage or the duration that enemies are stunned. Aliens: Fireteam Elite is available now for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5 and PC.
