What are Javelins?
Javelins are Exosuits that player characters, known as “Freelancers,” don while exploring the vast wilderness outside of their home fortress. Anthem has four different types of Javelins that have very different attributes, abilities, and equipment.
How to Unlock Javelins
Javelins can be unlocked by simply leveling up your Pilot Level by doing missions. You will be granted access to a new Javelin of your choice at levels 2, 12, 20, and 28. Though you will eventually unlock all of the Javelins as you play the game, it is important to plan what playstyles you want to focus on early on.
