Freelancers are the characters that players play as in Atlas Reactor. Each Freelancer belongs to a role that broadly describes the playstyle of the character. There are three roles in Atlas Reactor: Firepower, Frontline and Support.
Currently, 28 Freelancers have been released, with the latest being Meridian on May 9, 2017.
Firepowers are generally the main source of damage for a team but also have the drawback of having a low amount of health. The fact that they have a lower health pool is usually offset by one or more abilities that will provide them with the tools they need to stay alive.

On their own they can still deal a decent amount of damage but in general do less damage than the other roles due to the fact that they are assisting their teammates.
There are currently 8 Support Freelancers:
