Torvald feels like he’s in a really weird spot right now. He went from having the lowest weak spot multiplier back in Legacy to having the highest now that Laz and Val barely have one. His shotgun has been buffed over and over again, now matching Parnell’s damage per pellet. And his mortars still feel really bad to fire.
Honestly, it feels like his shotgun has been overbuffed to compensate for his mortar being so weak. He’s pretty much just a better Parnell if you can stay close to the monster now. There are so many hunters with shotguns, but he’s the only one with mortars, and it just feels like we’re losing out on what makes him fun and unique. I certainly remember the terror that was release Torvald, but his mortars have been so bad for so long. I feel like taking some of the damage off of his shotgun and making his mortars somewhat easier to use wouldn’t break him.
@Insane_521 @mizx Are there any numbers that break down Torvald’s average shotgun vs mortar damage? Are there any plans to make his mortars more usable, or does the balance team think that it’s in a usable spot right now?
