Insurgency features 19 unique classes (9 Security classes, 10 Insurgency classes). Though some are very similar, each has different sets of primary and explosive weapons available to them. All classes have access to all available secondary weapons, protective armors, and ammo vests. Each class has 10 supply points that may be used for weapons, attachments, and gear at the start of a match or at a re-supply point.
