Yeah his Ultimate is a little underwhelming for me, mainly because it feels like he has 1 offensive skill instead of 2, prior to popping Boomsday. The reason I say that is because I am not 100% pleased with his take-off skill (Liftoff?). If it propelled Benedict quicker & higher into the air, then I would keep Boomsday as is (mainly for clearing minions, low level groups of enemies - that’s how it’s most effective for me).
It’d be great if Boomsday was a 1 hit kill on all enemies (especially if landed directly or popped at point blank range) only because Benedict can’t get rushed and needs a quick “bailout” whether that be evasive or offensive. So if people don’t want Boomsday buffed, I’d ask to have his Liftoff skill buffed a bit that can at least launch him out of direct harm’s way. Liftoff does combine well with double/triple jump but the cooldowns can be long.
Since Liftoff is not an offensive attack of sorts, I try to make up for it by combining Hawkeye with 5 rockets already loaded…basically, I pop Hawkeye first (3 rapid rockets) then spam my 5 regular rockets to max out damage against enemy AI. In PvP, I dont care to use Benedict outside Meltdown. But if I’m missing out on anything please fill me in.
