Caira needs a nerf and here’s the reason I think why.
If I’m playing as the Hunters and get slapped with either Support or Medic then Ill just wait and see what the other will do. If I see a Caira then Ill just pick Hank or the vice versa because I know those two together are an absurdly powerful combo and is usually enough to just win without anyone dieing.
The reason is Hank will just slap his shield on to someone and Caira will vaguely aim in someones general direction and heal half the team. Now I don’t entirely have a problem with this most of the time because you can just focus the medic and kill them… Unless its Caira and Hank.
With Caira’s ability to just aim at her feet or the monster that is all up in her face and Hank’s ability to shield her. Then she can just tank any damage you throw at her and any progress you’ve made in killing her goes right out the window.
And you can just stick on her forever because the Trapper is going to harpoon you and force you to look back to break the harpoon. Giving her enough time to use a speed boost and fly away.
So why doesn’t the Monster just focus Hank instead? Because he’ll just turn invisible and Caira will aim somewhere in his general direction should he be taking any damage.
Seriously I’ve done this plenty of times before with me being on both sides of the table. I rarely win against it and I rarely lose while doing it either.
The only times I ever seem to lose when doing this combo is when the Medic isn’t exactly the brightest(I prefer Support over medic) or if one of us gets stuck in a corner by a Wraith Supernova.
And that Supernova one doesn’t always work out for the monster either if its Caira that’s stuck because then Ill just bomb him from orbit making him choose to either move or lose half of his health bar.
I’m sure there’s gonna be a lot of “Oh I beat those two together all the time because I do this and whatever”.
I’m not saying its unbeatable, I’m saying its really to strong and needs to be changed a little bit. Maybe Caira doesn’t heal herself as much as the other Hunters or her grenades have a shorter splash?
