“I SEE I’VE GOT YOUR HEART RACING”

- PULSE

 

Every week we will unveil a new Operator Spotlight - going into detail on the background, inspiration, and gameplay of each operator. Please keep in mind that operators are a work in progress, and information is still subject to change by launch.

 


PROFILE


Jack Estrada's work with the FBI biometrics program allowed him to blend his background in communications and biochemistry to a powerful effect. Moving from the lab to active duty in 2010, his ability to read people made him a natural negotiator. He wields a heartbeat sensor capable of detecting enemies or allies at a distance.

GAMEPLAY


While using the Heartbeat sensor, Pulse can detect anyone in proximity, even through walls, making it very hard for the enemies to approach undetected. While playing as Pulse, it is absolutely primordial that you communicate actively with your team: since you know the movements of enemies nearby. Pay attention to your screen tough, as friendlies (and the hostage) can also show up on the heartbeat sensor.

 

 

In your loadout, you can either equip a Nitro Cell, which you can place in a remote distance and detonate it when you see an enemy through the heartbeat sensor approach the blast zone, or even use barbed wires in order to slow down enemies and help you detect them in time. Avoid Thatcher's EMP Grenades at all costs, as they will render the Heartbeat sensor useless for a substantial amount of time if they blow up near you.

UNIQUE GADGET


While working in the FBI biometrics program, Jack developed a portable device capable of tracking a suspect’s blood flow and heartbeat. The portable cardiac sensor proved a useful non-invasive interrogation tool as the operator was able to monitor the stress level of suspects, and reliably determine their truthfulness.

 

 

The sensor was then equipped with a higher resolution screen and programmed to determine the relative distance of targets. The modified Cardiac Sensor was successfully implemented into the FBI SWAT team’s surveillance counter-measures where sniper spotters and negotiators have effectively used the device to located hostiles behind cover, or from a secure location.
