His niche, character lore and gameplay wise

To you and @loving-hatred
With is a preposition. This describes where something is. So, loving said that he was good in the area of words. Good was describing himself. Well would be “I’m sorry that I work well with words!”

Oh no I meant noob lore wise according to Foxtrot. I agree, he has an interesting and high skill ceiling.

Oh yes very true then, though I thought of him as the aspiring outcast clone type, noob first short haha, I would really like to know how severe his identity crisis is, I like to think before he meant his new friends that whiskey foxtrot kept him going through his legends, and later montana

-beats head repeatedly against a wall, turns with mouth open and finger raised, then beats head against the wall one last time-

THAT WAS THE JOKE!!

As to my exaggeration of WF: Yes, i know there are better minion killing characters, and in my defense i said “ONE of, if not the best”. To be fair, i should have said: “He’s one of the best RANGED minion killers.”

Whiskey seems to be kind of like that badass that has been through it all and survived. His kit and personality kind of coalesce into this tacticianer/assassinish/survivalist badass who’s wallet clearly has the words bad and mother on it

Yes very true, so far I’m loving these answers

As Whiskey Foxtrot is my favorite character and takes up at least 70% of my playtime I’d like to offer some input.
As some others have said, Whiskey’s lore and gameplay are that of a survivalist/guerilla fighter.
He CAN fight in an open battle, but why would he do that?
Whiskey Foxtrot is good at everything. Maybe not the best but he is capable of fulfilling several roles at once and because of his versatile kit he can force every engagement to go on his terms.
Your job at all times is to put the enemy team at a disadvantage.
Foxtrot knows what he’s doing. You aim for the head, you slow/disrupt priority targets/the enemy team., you make tanks $&*% themselves with damage output.
You don’t die because you have the upper-hand in fights or can create it very quickly.
Foxtrot has the Tactical Rifle. The very aptly named Tactical Rifle. It let’s him function at whatever range he wants as a primary weapon. He has more health than a squishy but has both sustained AND burst damage.
He can constantly fire.
Do you need someone to cover your back line? Foxtrot.
Watch the flank? Foxtrot.
Wave clear? Foxtrot.
Harass? Foxtrot?
Cc annoying characters? WTF.
See where I’m going?

kelvin is a more traditional tank, or I would describe him as such but I admittedly am ignorant when it comes to him.

Alani I would label as a combat medic from my experience, she;s in the thick of the fight and save the team mates asses to get them to the real doc’s(miko or supply station etc.)

ernest requires some examining how we use words, I would actually call him a support in multiple ways, he provides artillery support with his attack to pressure targets out of line or to suppress them. his egg provides infrastructure(defense, movespeed boost, improved attack power etc)

reyna is a field officer, prioritizing the immediate target that needs to go down.
think of it as war, reyna is the officer calling for an artillery strike on an enemy position. ernest is the mortar strike hitting them, Alani is the one on the front lines saving the team mates to go home.

and the other one i’ll mention is benedict, he’s the specialist. I dealt with them (and I was one sometimes) when I was in the service and I still find them annoying, he’s the guy who’d be busted down in rank if he was one iota less skilled and qualified than he was in his area of expertise.

sorry for the direct translation to real life military, just how I see them to make it easier

Woosh

Thanks, that was a good read, as for benedict, the devs described him as air support, softening up enemies for the team and killing them if not careful

true enough, I guess I spoke more of his personality but I hope they were accurate enough in your perspective?

Oh, God… Do you have any idea what you and @cadecampbell have done by discussing Benedict’s personality?! You’re gonna bring @Benedict_87 down on us!

OH, GOD; WHY DID I TYPE HIS NAME?!

Sorry I’m late. I was… uh… busy…
I know, usually you call my name and I come right over but…
I mean… I was, like I said… busy… NOT eavesdropping on a private conversation Ernest and Ghalt were havin’ about… uh… me…

Awwwwww… is that why you called me here?
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww… Do we HAVE to talk about that?
C’mon! Let’s talk about uh… something else. Like anything else.
Hey, did anyone here watch “John Adams”?
That HBO series?
I didn’t, but I heard… it was good?

Guys seriously… I really, REALLY don’t wanna talk about my discipline problems right now… ok…
I’m kind of worried. I think Ghalt might be fed up with me and I don’t know what to do! I’ve got Mellka pissed off at me, I’ve got Deande pissed off at me, I’ve got Kleese pissed off at me… but he’s pissed off at everyone so that’s not really sayin’ much… Reyna isn’t too partial of me either. I CAN’T have all the commanders pissed at me. I don’t know what I’m gonna do here… I hear they’re plannin’ a secret meeting to talk about me… everyone’s invited BUT me… I’m real worried…

GUYS C’MON!!! LET’S TALK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE!!! HEY!!! YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT DARKWING DUCK? DOES ANYBODY HERE REMEMBER DARKWING DUCK??? WHAT IS THIS TOPIC EVEN ON??? F**K!!! I DON’T CARE!!! THIS THREAD IS NOW ABOUT DARKWING DUCK!!!

DARKWING F**CKING DUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!

Benedict cheers in a half drunken stupor at the theme song until he collapses on the bed and starts sobbing.


EDITOR’S NOTE: Hi. It’s me. Nova. I don’t think he wanted you to know that last bit, but I thought I’d add it in anyway. Why? Because I can. And he’s not exactly in any condition to stop me. He’s pretty f*cking upset right now. Not that I care. But revealing everybody’s embarrassing secrets is sort of a hobby of mine, which is why I put up with his bulls**t. Don’t worry. He isn’t gonna derail the thread any further. I don’t think he could even if he wanted to. He’s hitting the bottle pretty hard right now. And he’s probably gonna pass out in… 3… 2… 1…

DAMN! I was off by three seconds.

Didn’t even know I owned a flask… Cool! I was gonna be like nah alcohol makes me sleepy. But the whiskey joke makes it a necessary inaccuracy
