New Brawler – Meg

Meg is the third member of Max’s and Surge’s trio and she’s a smart vending machine repair girl who wants to be a hero like Max and Surge, and although they think she’s not ready to fight yet, Meg always joins the battle anyway!

  • Legendary Brawler
  • Main Attack (Normal form) – Clean Up
    • Weak (but courageous!) medium-range shot
  • Super Ability (Normal form) – Mega Machina
    • Call for her Mecha armor!
    • When in Mecha form Meg gets two different attacks and a lot more Health Points! But her Health Points decay over time
    • Once her Mecha HP reaches 0, she goes back to her normal form
  • Main Attack (Mecha form) – Crowd Control
    • A strong barrage of bullets (8 projectiles, 4 from each cannon)
  • Super Ability (Mecha form) – Feel the Steel
    • Her Super button then becomes a secondary attack! It’s a melee swipe causing lots of damage in a wide arc
    • This attack charges automatically and doesn’t get charged with normal attacks
  • Gadget – Jolting Volts
    • Heal mecha by 450 health per second for 5 seconds
  • Star Power – Force Field
    • Her normal form gets a 35% shield for 30 seconds after a mecha suit is destroyed.
  • Star Power – Self Destruction
    • Upon expiring, the mecha suit explodes dealing 1000 damage to nearby opponents and pushing them away

Brawler Balance

Buffs

  • Brock
    • Increased main attack explosion radius by 50%. In an effort to provide each long-range damage dealer with their own niche, Brock’s abilities now focus more on his ability to deal area and splash damage. The nerfs to his main attack range and damage are meant to off-set his new area damage potential
  • Jacky
    • Removed delay on super activation
    • Jacky can move and attack earlier after activating her super Jacky’s Super “Holey Moley!” was too weak and never really fulfilled its intended role, mainly due to the involved delay timers. Removing the delay and allowing Jacky to be more mobile should allow her to become more of a threat when she activates her Super

Nerfs

  • Brock
    • Reduced main attack damage from 1220 to 1160
    • Rocket Fuel – Removed the bonus damage from the Gadget
    • Main attack – Range decreased(30->27) to offset for explosion increase
  • Belle
    • Reduced Main attack damage from 1100 to 1040
    • Reduced Main attack bounce damage from 550 to 520 Despite the previous nerfs, Belle still dominated in several game modes and maps. Reducing her damage from the main attack (and indirectly bounce damage) should bring her more in line with other long-range damage dealers and less of a must-pick

Changes

  • Carl
    • Heat Ejector fire now follows the next main attack rather than Carl himself. Carl’s Gadget “Heat Ejector” was only useful when fleeing from an engagement or in conjunction with his Super. This change will give the Gadget more versatility, allow for more interesting plays and give him more area control capabilities which is in line with the rest of his kit

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where wizard Byron animations were breaking when airborne
  • Fixed an issue where Edgar Fisticuffs Star Power increased the timer of the movement speed boost after jumping
  • Fixed an issue where spikes gadget would not get launched by jump pads
  • Fixed an issue where Lunar Piper skin would cause minor screen shake when she starts moving
