Skin - Hawk

Support Specialist Hawk is however one of the worst performing soldiers individually. His fully unlocked skill set syncs up really well- and is quite fun, when using explosive weapons. During his warcry his weapons don't lose durability, so explosive weapons become infinite use if timed properly. Without a good rocket launcher though, this isn't very helpful.
