First off, I gotta say, I totally called this! As soon as I heard about the mutagen wars I thought “I bet we’re going to see a mutant hunter,” and sure enough! But onto the discussion.
So, a medic that relies on the Heal Burst. Sounds like risky business. Sure he’s got his little healer drone, but the post said “As soon as the Hunter getting healed is attacked, the drone returns to Slim.” That means no combat healing with the drone! Will his ubercharged Heal Burst be enough? We’ll see…
Speaking of the Heal Burst: “The Leech gun is how Slim replenishes the Medic Heal Burst ability.” Are they saying Slim’s HB doesn’t recharge over time like all the other medics? Interesting…keep that Leech Gun handy, Slim!
The Leech Gun “saps strength from the Monster,” but what does that mean? Does it slow him, does it do damage, or does it literally take away from the Monster’s evolve meter (probably not)?! I’m guessing minor damage with a beam similar to the Damage Amp, but that’s just me. Works on wildlife too, so that’s a plus!
And finally, I wanted to point this out:
We can see Slim standing in front of Torvald and slightly to the left, but look closely at his back… Wings! This mother-Hubber can fly!! Functionally similar to the jet pack, yes. Aesthetically, very different and VERY cool! As a primarily Medic player, I can’t wait to try out Slim and really “bug” the Monster.
EDIT: I totally spaced on the scent masking!! This pseudo-stealth could be great for sneaking up on the Monster, but that all depends on its duration and effective range. Remember, he can still see you! It provides the team with a secondary cloaking ability, which could be big in competitive play.
TL;DR - Slim is a big bug.
