Benedict's Greatest Weakness

(GT: Eldritch Arcana) #1

I was playing a match as Kleese against Benedict, and we were constantly getting into long range firefights. I wasn’t super worried, but while firing at him with my wrist cannon I discovered something.

You can shoot Benedict’s rockets out of the air.

Knowing this, Benedict is nigh upon a non-threat when facing any ranged character head on. Simply shoot the rockets, shoot Ben rinse and repeat. This may help you fight post-buff Ben (who isn’t really all that much stronger) if you’re having trouble.

how much hp does the rocket have? I think if it’s low enough his regular wrist canon and taser can shoot them down

So Kleese just spamming Taser stops it? That’s actually a good idea Gearbox came up with. Since it was more of a handicap in his past iterations now it’s more of a counter measure to keep him in check.

Yea… That’s if you have a kleese on your team or if you have an Oscar mike or any range character that’s not busy to shoot missles for you. If your a melee you can be screwed… Some Benedicts I played with shoot rockets like if they were going out of style. Still hard to shoot if they are bombarding your sentry and not the player itself.

tbh it only works in 1v1 scenarios with ranged characters at mid to long range, where benedict already suffers

I was going to say the fact that his rockets need a crazy lead so you can just walk 2 meter to the side and how he’s just a giant floating balloon while he flies around… but yea, shooting his rockets works as well I suppose.

I’ve still had a few games where a player who is good at using him would just take out both of our sentries slowly without DIEING. He was made to be a character who can avoid damage by flying. It got to the point where I was wasting time aiming at him at all with other things going on. Are there other tips on how to like…actually KILL him?

Didn’t actually know that.

Question? Does this work with Galilea’s corruption? Her pull and stun already wreck him, but this could make her his hard counter

Yeah… yeah… you can shoot my rockets.
That ain’t my greatest weakness though.
My greatest weakness is that trembling in my knees I get when I see my beautiful face in the mirror every morning.

Sings to mirror…
