Commanding Force unleashes Brava, an attacker equipped with the Kludge Drone gadget. This drone disrupts enemy surveillance and provides countermeasures, such as transforming technology for its squadron. A highly adaptable operator, Brava can gain an advantage in any environment by taking advantage of the electronic resources available to him. The Brava is a three-speed, single-health operator, and its loadout contains the PARA-308 or CAMRS as its primary weapon and the USP40 or Super Shorty as its secondary weapon.
Players using a mouse and keyboard on consoles will trigger a penalty that adds lag to their inputs. The purpose of this penalty is to encourage fair play by removing the unfair advantage mouse and keyboard players have over consoles. Continuous use of the mouse and keyboard during the activity gradually increases the lag over several matches, making it difficult to aim and shoot.
