Not all combatants need weapons to be effective in combat, some rely instead on making brutal strikes and vicious moves to take down their opponents. Tenacious, patient, and intense, they are adept at avoiding hits while moving about the field of combat looking for an opportunity, attacking ferociously when it comes. More than anything else, those in this role go for quick knockouts and disabling attacks, relying on their allies to keep the attention of their opponents while they get into position.
