The Locust players will get to use Tier 2 type characters once they've gotten enough points. They're all basically overpowered and pretty awesome. I'm not the best Gears player, but when I realized I could just destroy everything with the Corpser, I ended up using him over and over.
The Corsper has a special ability where he can dig underground, letting him bypass fences and destroy obstacles directly above his path. Once above ground, the Corpser has these powerful claws that he can slam into opponents, usually killing them instantly.
Admittedly, it's very overpowered and the other team was quick to abuse the Corpser themselves once we had to switch sides for the next round. Overall, the match took around 15 to 20 minutes on each side, with the game ending in a draw.
While I did like the Tier 2 Locust characters as they were, I do hope they get properly balanced in the final product. There needs to be some better limitations on how much players can use them. Otherwise, teams of Corpsers can easily dominate and destroy every time.
All in all, Overrun is simply a blast to play. Like Horde mode before it, I wonder how soon other games will try to mimic Overrun once they see the potential -- it's a great way to break up the monotony of traditional shooter games.
