Finally got around to watching the Kid Ultra stream last night. Really cool stream for the most part. I really enjoyed how they went into his creation process and their reasonings that led them to the Kid Ultra we know today. It really gave me a more personal relationship with the new hero (as if I couldn’t already love him enough). But honestly the real highlight, for me anyway, was the reveal of how he works on the battlefield! Now I typically prefer to try something for myself before I pass definite judgment on it. But that being said, I do have a couple things I want to start this discussion with.
First of all, I still love this hero. I haven’t felt quite this attached to any other character in Battleborn (sorry Benedict, I still love you though). I like the ideas behind his primary and secondary fire modes, I just hope they do enough damage. Two things that mainly concern me: the healing drone and his ult. The healing drone can be shot out of the sky. Hopefully it’s not the easiest thing to do and will still impact low-health characters enough to keep them in the fray (not unlike ambra’s sunspots). Secondly, the fact he can get CC’d out of his ultimate seems questionable to me. His ult seems by and far the most impactful move in his kit. I mean, it kinda defines him. Anyway, like I said I’ll reserve further judgement, but I’m curious to hear some of your opinions and first impressions on Battleborn’s new crime-fighting Magnus! Anything from his conception to his skills, to how he plays out on a team (or a certain Battleborn).
