The Pointman is the first, starting and arguably the most important class in the game. As the name implies the main purpose of this class is to enter doors and engage the enemy first before the other classes enter most situations. Unless the armor level is changed this class has the highest mobility which no other class can match.
The main weapon of the pointman are the games pistols and revolvers. The calibers available for the class range between 9x19 mm subsonic to 44 magnum.
The pointman wears the standard SWAT outfit, albeit he has a different skin tone. Both he and the Shield have a visor, however, the pointman's goes all the way down the face, unlike the shield.
