WHAT IS THE GAME?
A TEAM OF MUTANTS
She might look like a cute little heartbreaker, but she’s no sweet little love maker. Meet the sassy vixen, Farrow!
Farrow is one of the recruitable characters you’ll encounter during your expeditions in The Zone. When you find her, you may notice that while she’s clearly a combat-ready Stalker, she ain’t quite from around here; in fact, she’s not even originally from the Ark!
Her true origins are a mystery – even to her. All she knows is her name’s Farrow, and she’s a product of the Zone. She thought her settlement was the only place left in the whole world…
Well, until she met you.
You’ll initially discover Farrow in what people call the Metal Fields; there, you’ll be greeted by a mob of Polis-Bots itching to dispense “justice”. Well probably anyway, if robots could feel. Or itch.
Farrow’s icon & base stats
Specializing in stealth and assassination, Farrow comes equipped with skills and gear that make her adept at quickly and quietly dispatching her foes. Her signature ability, Silent Assassin, doubles her critical strike chance against enemies while she’s hidden! This makes her particularly valuable for initiating combat out of stealth, such as when picking off stragglers.
Combine Silent Assassin with items and boosts that further increase crit chance for fantastic results:
Look at all those stacking crit buffs!
Other choices allow Farrow to remain hidden while moving between cover, and later she can mutate to possess extreme mobility, able to leap great distances or effortlessly gain high ground advantages.
Let’s take a closer look at what Farrow’s cookin’ with:
Important gameplay note: You can only equip one Minor (Square), one Major (Hexagon), and one Passive (Circle) mutation at a time!
Now, Let’s take a quick look at her passive stat mutations:
Farrow is the only Stalker capable of increasing their innate critical strike rate. Stat boosts are ALWAYS ACTIVE as long as you’ve put points into them; you don’t have to “equip” the bonuses like you would with other mutations.
As you can see, Farrow’s all about leaving busted heads and broken hearts left in her wake.
How will you utilize Farrow? We’d love to hear how she fits into your playstyle when Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden launches on December 4th.
Alright Stalkers, that’s all for now. We’ll see you in the Zone real soon.
