So I really like Benedict, he’s really cool and features a great design . The thing is he’s a little (just a little ) boring. I would rather say his skills , they’re really basic. I have a cool idea for maybe like another skill for or maybe a rework. I find Boomsday to be fine . But it just doesn’t really cut it for dmg and it’s so fast too. I was thinking we could make it more badass with an really badass ult. Some people may have heard about pharah from overwatch and she is truly known for her ult… now we don’t want to talk about overwatch on a gearbox forum . Instead of boomsday Gbx could add a different ult, for him to be known really well too.
First ult idea: My first idea for an real badass ult would be him like “spinning his arm” or better say turning his rocket launcher , where he finds a switch. When he turns on the switch you hold a mega rocket in the launcher that you can and should activate from above. There you can see the area it effects and you can let go for it, for it to launch death dealing maybe 600 dmg. I could see this being really effective against minions and crowd control. While it doesn’t necessarily make him op it gets the advantage of flying and flying . Maybe Gbx could call it “Hagel Rakete” it’s German and they actually have done something similar with marquis eins zwei and however it continues.
So I wouldn’t see the name as a problem, but of course it could and should be suspected to change.
Second idea: So Benedict gets two mini rocket launchers out-of his rocket launcher. That would cause an timed ult, maybe it could last 6 sec. With the two extra mini rocket launchers coming somehow out of the side he would shoot three rockets instead of one . This would triple the damage output if all three rockets hit the minion or enemy. Or maybe it could even fore a row of rockets, that makes him really effective against minions . Now this would be badass, 3 rocket launchers in one. I would love to hear something from Gbx themselves and the excellent community about this idea. I’d really love to see something like this . But of course it would take some work to maybe re-doing his rocket launcher and some effort, so I don’t want to stress out anybody who developed the game it would be just optional. I hope I didn’t waste your time and make sure to comment about this.
Ps: Gbx please make an American eagle skin for him.
