Operatives

Shatterline boasts a diverse roster of eight distinct playable characters, each possessing their own specialized abilities and perks. Players can choose from an arsenal of 25 customizable weapons that are upgradable and compatible with every character. As both characters and weapons advance, they accumulate experience and unlock additional features, enhancing gameplay over time.

There is no strict limitation on weapon assignments to characters, as any Operative can wield any weapon. With the flexibility to assume various roles on the battlefield and the ability to mix and match abilities and loadouts, players can craft a truly unique playstyle tailored to their individual preferences.

Abillities Explained

In Shatterline, character abilities play a significant role in creating diverse gameplay experiences and strategic opportunities for players.

These abilities typically fall into three categories: Active, Passive, and Ultimate abilities. Let’s explore each type in more detail:

  1. Active Abilities: These are abilities that players can actively use during gameplay to gain an advantage over their opponents. Active abilities usually have a cooldown period, meaning that after using the ability, players will need to wait for a certain amount of time before they can use it again. Examples of active abilities include deploying a shield, throwing a grenade, or using a grappling hook to traverse the map quickly.
  2. Passive Abilities: Unlike active abilities, passive abilities are always in effect and don’t require any input from the player to function. They often enhance a character’s core attributes or provide minor benefits that can make a difference in specific situations. For example, a passive ability might grant increased movement speed, faster health regeneration, or a higher resistance to certain types of damage.
  3. Ultimate Abilities: These are powerful, game-changing abilities that can turn the tide of a match when used effectively. Ultimate abilities often require players to charge them up by dealing damage, healing teammates, or completing objectives. Once fully charged, players can unleash these powerful abilities, which often have a dramatic impact on the battlefield. Examples of ultimate abilities include launching a devastating airstrike, summoning a powerful mech, or becoming temporarily invulnerable to damage.

Biography

Kyra, the sole child of esteemed U.S. Army General Damarcus Whitmore, experienced a nomadic upbringing as her family relocated frequently to accommodate her father’s flourishing military career. Consequently, she struggled to form lasting friendships or develop a sense of belonging to any particular place.

Her training commenced at an early age, with rifles replacing dolls and driving a Humvee by the age of 10. Kyra excelled in athletics, swimming, and boxing, consistently outperforming her peers. The combination of her intensive physical training and exposure to her family’s strong military values led to Kyra becoming the first woman ever admitted to Delta Force. She effortlessly completed boot camp and participated in an experimental warfare program, adopting the call sign “Strix”.

Following the Strafe, Kyra tested positive for immunity with the V-Test. Shaped by her patriotic upbringing and lifelong training, she embraced her newfound immunity as a personal calling. Strix has since become the quintessential symbol of Shellguard, embodying the organization’s core values and ideals.

Personality

Kyra possesses innate leadership qualities, often issuing directives and motivating statements such as “keep your eyes on the prize,” “follow my lead,” and “on my command”.

However, this relentless urge to lead may mask a deeper uncertainty, potentially concealing an absence of personal aspirations and dreams.

Biography

From an early age, Mason displayed a fearless and daring spirit. He eagerly embraced challenges, from motorbike racing to rafting and paragliding, never shying away from a fight. After trying various careers without finding the adrenaline rush he sought, Mason enlisted in the US Marines at age 24. Following basic training, he pursued combat engineering and, under the call sign “Ram,” participated in special operations across Syria, Yemen, and Somalia between 2020 and 2024. During one mission, a mine detonated as he attempted to disarm it, resulting in the loss of both his forearms.

Unwilling to accept his disability, Mason resolved to reclaim his former life at any cost. He volunteered for an experimental military program focused on advanced combat prosthetics. After a series of arm enhancements, he resumed active duty. Over the next three years, Ram participated in field tests and mastered control over his cutting-edge limbs. By 2027, his prosthetics had become fully functional replacements for his lost forearms. Upon discovering his V-positive status, he immediately dedicated himself to Shellguard’s mission without hesitation.

Personality

Ram, an exuberant risk-taker, finds scaling mountains or soaring off them with a paraglider as effortless as riding a bike. Unfazed by fear, he embraces every day with the zeal of someone living life to the fullest. It’s wise to steer clear when Mason’s temper flares, as his fury can be intense.

Biography

Peter was born into affluence, with the potential for a worry-free existence had he conformed to high society’s expectations. However, he obstinately resisted fitting in, turning to alcohol, drugs, and rejecting education. By 18, he had amassed a string of petty crimes, only escaping legal consequences thanks to his family’s lawyers.

Despite his rebellious nature, Peter was forcibly enrolled in a prestigious medical college after high school. Relying on his intelligence and charisma, he narrowly avoided expulsion. Tragedy struck during a prom party when his girlfriend overdosed on drugs; if he had been sober, Peter could have saved her. Instead, he could only watch in horror as she perished in his arms.

This incident served as a breaking point for Peter’s father, who subsequently cut off his financial support and sent him to the military to learn discipline. Surprisingly, it was there that Peter discovered his true calling. Stripped of the wealth that once bought him respect, he began to genuinely connect with others. When his initial two-year enlistment ended, he voluntarily extended his service.

Peter viewed his immunity and assignment to Shellguard as an opportunity for redemption, a chance to make amends for the years he had squandered.

Biography

On the day of the Strafe, fragments of Object X pummeled the International Space Station. Dieter was the sole astronaut to reach the escape pod and jettison away. As he remained in space, shrapnel laden with Black Salt penetrated his body. The astronaut crash-landed in the epicenter of an Impact Zone and lay unconscious for several days, during which Red Salt entered his system. The interaction between the two Crystalline strains halted the transformation process midway, allowing Orbit to retain his human features and mind despite the Crystalline’s modifications to his body. Dieter eventually escaped the Zone and surrendered to authorities. Following weeks of quarantine and thorough examinations, he gradually gained control over his newfound abilities.

In March 2028, upon learning about Shellguard’s establishment, Orbit requested to join their operational force. His aim was to work in the field, gathering as much information about the Crystalline as possible in order to reverse the transformation and regain his humanity.

Personality

Orbit stands as a unique case within Shellguard. Although he lacks the V-Gene, he possesses abilities akin to those of high-ranking Glassheads.

Biography

Dominic was born in Hong Kong alongside his twin brother, Jimmy. As children, the brothers were inseparable, but their paths diverged during their youth. Dominic joined a street gang and made a name for himself in underground MMA tournaments, while Jimmy excelled academically and pursued law school. Despite their differences, Jimmy consistently helped Dominic out of trouble, attempting to steer him towards a more stable lifestyle. However, Dominic’s violent nature persisted. At 26, he organized his own tournament, borrowing money from a criminal boss.

Initially successful, the tournament was eventually shut down by a rival gang. Owing a debt and fearing retribution, Dominic decided to turn himself in and serve a short sentence for organizing illegal sporting events.

While in custody, thugs mistaking Jimmy for “Mongoose” killed him. Dominic learned about his brother’s tragic fate after his incarceration. In January 2028, Dominic tested positive for the V-gene and was offered parole in exchange for service with Shellguard. Determined to find a true purpose in life, he left his criminal past behind and embraced his new path.

Biography

Ciaran grew up under his father’s care, as his mother lost parental rights due to a mental condition. Diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome early in life, he was physically frail yet displayed exceptional mathematical abilities and an extraordinarily high IQ. To help him focus, his father encouraged him to take up a hobby, leading Ciaran to excel in both chess and sharpshooting by the age of 18.

With limited career prospects in his hometown, Ciaran enlisted in the military and was assigned to the Special Reconnaissance Regiment. From 2019 to 2024, he participated in British Army special operations in Somalia, Yemen, and South Sudan under the call sign “Kite.” By age 30, he was a renowned expert in eliminating high-priority targets behind enemy lines. In March 2028, Ciaran passed the V-Test.

Although initially cautious about joining Shellguard due to the change in command, Ciaran saw it as a new challenge and an opportunity to compete with the world’s top military specialists. His motivation stems not from fighting the Crystalline threat but from pushing his limits in the game of life.

Personality

Kite is a reticent, concise, and somewhat enigmatic figure.

Adriana was born into a large, mixed Portuguese and Native Brazilian family. In her youth, she excelled in archery, even winning a junior varsity state championship. At 22, she joined the police academy alongside her older brother, Luis. Tragically, Luis was killed in action during a raid on the Norte Familia cartel in 2024. Fueled by vengeance, Adriana transferred to special operations, underwent rigorous training, and under the alias ‘Brisa’, spearheaded a mission that ultimately dismantled the cartel.

Recognized for her exceptional skills, Brisa was invited to work as an undercover agent, granted the freedom to use any means necessary to get close to criminal leaders and eliminate them. Over the next five years, she successfully outmaneuvered several crime lords through her ingenious blend of intrigue, blackmail, and seduction.

After the Strafe, Adriana passed the V-Test and was assigned to Shellguard. She approaches her new colleagues with a hint of arrogance, and the idealism held by individuals like Strix or Malva is foreign to her. However, she acknowledges the danger the world faces and recognizes that in order to restore the joys of parties and vibrant living, it’s crucial to combat the Crystalline threat.

Personality
