Coming to Evolve later this month, Lennox (Assault class) is the first Hunter in Evolve to feature a melee attack.

“The new Monster and Hunters coming to Evolve in Hunting
Season 2 are some of the most unique characters our team has created,”
From Turtle Rock Studios, creators of Left 4 Dead, comes Evolve, the highly anticipated shooter in which four Hunters face off against a single, player-controlled Monster in adrenaline-pumping 4v1 matches. Play as the Monster to use savage abilities and an animalistic sense to kill your human enemies, or choose one of four Hunter classes (Trapper, Support, Assault and Medic) and team up to take down the beast on the planet Shear, where flora and fauna act as an adversary to man and Monster alike. Level up to unlock new Hunter or Monster characters as well as upgrades, skins, and perks. Earn your infamy on the leaderboards and become the apex predator.
