The Swashbuckler takes unique advantage of the adroitness of its underlying chassis, built expressly for the purpose of navigating a ship’s deck even when tossed by winds at sea. Engines East employed a cortex custom-built to augment capability in melee as well as superlative situational awareness. Privateers enjoy them in particular for their usefulness during boarding operations, either on the offense or defense. Firing a short-ranged cannon in one hand and wielding a cutlass in the other, the Swashbuckler is aptly named: it walks with a similar swagger to its human counterpart.
The Swashbuckler is a nimble light ’jack that can leverage its powerful defensive abilities to thwart enemy plans. Duelist and Dodge make it difficult to lock down in melee combat, and Defensive Strike discourages your foe from engaging it without getting punished.
