Torque, the “Dependable Mechanic,” is an easy-to-use mechanic with strong healing and bolstering abilities. Drop dispensers and keep them protected, but if they break, don’t sweat it! Torque can always make more, and his team still benefits from the destruction of his dispensers!

  • Solidify now adds Damage in addition to Health and Holo Double Health gain.

klayton Klayton

Klayton paid a visit to Brogan, and after some tense negotiations, got himself a better gun.

  • Stay Down Damage increased by 400%.
  • Seeing Red Health Recovery increased by ~10%

Yup, they could have just changed the Prison Riot skill so she isn’t so potent on sand bagging teams. Easy fix would have been to make the skill only activate if the hero killed is a certain power, relative to Shiv. Or just straight nerf the reload speed and dmg increase on it.

The nerf they did all but makes the hero worthless. Lower pellet count, slower shot speed, AND reload increase? Add her to the graveyard along with Panzer, Ronin, Nightingale, Ifrit, and the others. Getting any sort of kill with her is going to require a miracle. They could have at least buffed her Shiv and Twist the Blade abilities. Meanwhile Kurtz goes another month unchecked, as does Phalanx and some of the other heroes who dominate the meta atm.

Super grateful for new PvP maps. Can’t wait to try em out!

I support everything except the shivs hammer grade nerf, and maybe the skin for bucket. Also, why not just name torque torbjorn already?
Something big coming from city center? Gorgon as playable hero?!?!

Nice! I’m looking forward to using Torque and his skin is cool, too. New PVP maps are awesome, seems like we’re saving the new game mode for further down the line, eh? :smirk:

Good to see the other events coming back, too, and Bucket’s skin looks great.

FAT Klayton buff, much needed. The rest looks good, too, I suppose. I’m not a PVP guy.

Why release D4 when it’s no longer possible to pass 3-5 without serial?

To be pragmatic: Shivs is being Klaytonized…

Other than that, a nice patch HH!!!

Wait so is there another featured faction besides mercenary? @Skathi

It will be Mercenaries and Morlocks.
