So here I am, posting another review for a character I believe needs a bit of uptuning (note, not quite buffing, unlike toby)
here’s what I’ve got:
Okay damage, not great without a kill (should be higher so he’s usable in capture)
Scrap cannon is weakish but has it’s purpose (could also use a bit extra damage)
Sticky grenade, also weakish, but surprisingly becomes very powerful through leveling (i wish they’d have it the same end damage but higher lvl 1 base damage)
Ultimate is powerful, very powerful. It is a facemelter that’s only drawback is a lack of scrap cannon, which isn’t a huge deal. (stay where it is)
Passive: I like passives that are useful. The thing about WF is that his passive is how he deals normal damage. He needs to kill minions to be able to kill battleborn. Although it’s a nice idea, I rather have him get a +20% damage buff or something all the time and instead and replace his passive with something else on kill. Likee accuracy, or movement speed, or less recoil.
These things are minor though, and he plays alight except for one thing I can’t stand. his lack of zoom and damage falloff. I understand his damage fall off happen fairly far away if i recall, but nonetheless, it’s annoying for a three round burst weapon thats about getting criticals moreso than most. SEecondly, the zoom without the acog scope is atrocious and useless, since it literally doesn’t zoom in at all. Couldn’t we have it zoom in more than OM’s gun, since he’s trying to shoot further ranged than him? I’d like a zoom increase to both iron sights and red dot. And I’d like the damage fall off it be a little further out too, or a little less than 50%.
In the end though, he’s still playable, his maximum ability to kill though is very low, compared to a lot of characters. Where melee characters start much more powerful than ranged, they usually seem to even out. However, WF’s ability to kill things doesn’t seeem to change much, seeing it’s not that hard to miss his grenade, and his gun is useless without killing something unless no onee sees you. It’s got lower bullets per second and literally a higher dps than OM by 1 point of damage. and without zoom, this doesn’t do much.
