I finally unlocked Kleese last night and queued up for an Incursion match with him. Like always, the map was Overgrowth and the enemy team had a Marquis that was content to just snipe our objective using the stairs glitch.
Anyway, our Sentry’s shields are practically gone when I, in a desperate move, threw down an energy rift next to it. To my surprise a small chunk of the blue bar came back. Capitalizing on this discovery, I placed the remaining two rifts down and had the objective back up to full.
A little while later, our sentry was low on shields again, thanks to the constant sniping of the enemy Marquis and a push by the opposing team. The energy rifts I had placed were gone, and the ability was still on cooldown, but I had my energy mortars; with the shield heal helix upgrade. Long story short, that ability will heal the Sentry’s shields as well.
I don’t know if anyone else was aware of this or not, but it is a great counter/delaying action for Marquis players that just only sit in their base sniping the objective all game. Personally, I don’t see this as OP since the restore rate isn’t that much, plus a decent push can easily break the protections and deal health damage to the objective
