Overview

Paladins is an online focused first-person shooter developed and published by Hi-Rez Studios for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Gameplay

Paladins is a team focused online first-person shooter. Teams are filled with unique characters with their own abilities, weapons, and traits.

Champions

The characters in Paladins are called Champions. There are four different styles of Champions. The four types are front line, damage, flank, and support.

Each Champion has four unique skills associated with their weaponry. The main skills operate on a cool down and can only be used again once that countdown timer reached zero. Each character also has an ultimate skill that can only be used once a meter has reached 100%. This meter fills slowly on its own and by doing damage to enemies. Once the ultimate has been used the meter resets to 0%.

Front Line champions

Front line Champions are meant to both protect their team mates and hold the line. The front line Champions gain an additional 100% credits for standing near an objective.
