Bucket-Emet combo is so insanely OP, lol


#1

If you want to make the Monster rage more than with any other set of Hunters, run Bucket & Emet together. Dunno if the combo is a unintentional or not. As it stands however, Bucket’s special weapon does not affect Emet only once like with every other Hunter. Rather, the effect lasts for a set amount of time, allowing Emet to use 5-7 Heal Bursts back to back, in the space of a few seconds. You can easily get upwards of 40k healing this way. Assuming the team can dodge a little bit and Assault is doing his job, that’s gg.


#2

Pretty sure you can only get it about thrice in a row, unless something has changed. It’s nowhere near 7.


#3

If you’re running Silver & Gold Command perks and hammering your ability key, then yeah you can.


#4

heal burst > mecha > 4x heal burst > heal burst after mecha duration wears off. So, if timing is good, you can ditch out 6x heal burst. That was what I encountered.


#5

7 healbursts? Dude, I know that emet-bucket is strong but this is a bug or a hack.

PD: It seems like it’s legal, I just hope that I never run into a premade who knows how to do this.


#6

This. You have to count the heal before and after Bucket’s effect time.


#7

I played Emet/Bucket before the recent HB change to him, when his CD was shorter, and I always run command perks on him and though I never counted it felt most like 3-4 HB’s when I was hammering the key; I’ll check it out again I guess.

It’s significantly better than his giving every other Medic just another healburst but then that healburst is Emet’s only good healing.


#8

I already put it x0.5. try playing it slower and count healburst. I wouldn’t call it insanely OP, but it’s tough to get a strike. Had to make them waste mecha and go through combo again. It’s like having to kill them twice to get one strike.


#9

The best part is that Bucket’s Mecha counts as a weapon, and so is affected by Reload perks.

All is Magma. Praise Armok.


#12

yep, good one.

here’s another example

from 1 quarter goes to full…


#13

Back when the heal burst was like every 4 seconds, it needed to refresh multiple times.

In its current state, I’d argue that it needs to be tuned down so it only refreshes 2 or 3, so Emet does actually benefit from the mechanised core, but not in this crazy way.
