Knowing them it’d be like 2 weeks of a glitch where it happens & she jus flys up into the sky til out of bounds


YakovPavlov1943

Like that video of a Valk crashing into a redeploy ship and getting her whole squad out of bounds


Binglebongle42069

LMAO honestly if crypto’s drone can be shot…


ShatteredCitadel

No but seriously lol


xXBamahutXx

Wait, I thought Echo was a dolphin?


TWK128

That's Ecco.


saurontu

You just keep going, that would be funny


Door90

Vantage should get a 100% damage increase if that happens. Echo is on a 2 minute cooldown, but vantage gets to wreak havoc


Maeve_of_blades

She just goes from a 5 round sniper that does 50/100 damage per shot to a bottomless semi-auto kraber that does double damage, gains the ability to hover infinitely with perfect accuracy with her gun out, and has no bullet drop or damage falloff on any gun, and has an active scan on the entire lobby for that 2 minutes. The simple answer to stop it from happening is to simply not shoot the bat, easy counter play if you ask me


Louiexvl

If you ping it and she calls it back to her the ping will track her for a few seconds


IsquanchoI

Really? This is a great tip


RayGannon

Except it is really f***ing hard to ping


Kaffikup

just point at it and click. not like its moving most of the time. edit:completely forgot about rollers


niall_9

Point? Click? Roller brain not comprehending


Implement-Playful

“Roller brain” is actually crazy lol


Darmok_ontheocean

We’re out here pushing sticks


Implement-Playful

Haha I’m on controller too, I tried to shoot the bat the first game of the season and immediately knew it wasn’t going to be something I would be doing even if I was able to.


sandefurian

Found the PC gamer


Kaffikup

oh thats fair I guess


TheGhostwheel

Only if it drops a tiny death box


superslime988

now i imagine crypto's drone has a death box that he needs to get or else he can't use the drone


luckyecho1310

He could just get the banner from the box with his dro... Actually, nevermind.


Matt_Elwell

But what if (new passive idea), he gets a drone to grab the drone's banner?


GetRektJelly

Or a passive where he can go off the grid or sum


Blainedecent

Please don't give the devs "balance ideas"


rex2k10

I have a stronger bond with Hack than Vantage has with the bat and everytime my drone gets shot, I get sad

ItsBrodieF

I dont know why I laughed so hard at this lol


nikeiptt

I wish we had the same mechanic with Hack to just point it in a direction we want to scan. Going in and out of drone mode fucks me up


Koqcerek

Every time I want to ping the banners to check for enemies nearby, it goes: >Patching into my eye in the sky. I'll let you know what I see. >Ya, there's no squads near us. >Backing out of my drone, I'm good to go. >Signaling my drone back. Every. Single. Time.


slowdruh

I'm coming to terms with the big chance that they'll never give us that banner check on ADS passive ( ._.)


brannock_

You do, it was added for the Newcastle patch. Just tap instead of hold the tactical button. Doesn't go very far though.


superslime988

wasn't it added in mad maggie's release?


SquidwardTheDevourer

only initially though, after its deployed cant do shit


[deleted]

Vantage is using her bat as a utility and nothing more Hack is cryptos friend and their relationship is shown beautifully with every animation


minermansion

Whenever someone kills hack in my games I say You broke hack now I break your face As a reference to I broke your securities and your face


nick1234512345

Hell if you aren’t gonna let us kill it al least let us shoot it and it’s gets scared and flys back or something


mcmunch20

Yo that’s actually a decent idea. Would give you a hint to where she is and force her to have to redeploy him.


BlazinAzn38

It’s really silly that it’s indestructible. We can shoot cryptos drone why can’t we shoot the bat


dorekk

Because the bat just lets you jump. The drone gives you fucking wall hacks and can explode into a damaging electromagnetic pulse lol.


BlazinAzn38

It’s a basically 100% uptime tactical as it is now in a game where movement is a premium skill. Also crypto’s drone doesn’t give you wallhacks it needs LOS


LumberJackHank

100% uptime??? You know it has a cooldown to use right?


Hevens-assassin

Crypto's drone actually gives a person information of where the enemy is, and can be used to damage you from a remote location. Echo is just vibing up in the sky and may or may not be used to boost up (depending on when you notice them). That's probably why it works that way. You can't shoot Loba's bracelet either.


PorknCheesee

Cryptos drone CAN: Pick up banners Respawn teammates Scan beacons Scan banners in the area to see how many squads are around Gives info with LoS Can EMP for free damage Can distract people Echo CAN: Sit there until you hold a button for a period of time and then continue sitting there until next time.


TheciphRED

It would be cool to be able to shoot the bracelet though.


Hevens-assassin

Or if shooting it, knocked the bracelet off course.


InvaderZimbabwe

It would be useless if you could destroy it. Crypto’s drone serves a purpose so you can destroy it because it can scan you and also damage you. The bat just shows you exactly where the vantage is going to go other then that it serves literally no other purpose, being able to kill it would kill vantages tactical. It would be like being able to destroy lobas bracelet mid throw. Which would be cool, but it would break Loba lol.


M1de23

“Shoot da batttttt!!” ~ Probably the Penguin But seriously no, don’t shoot the bat. If anything it’s presence gives away Vantage’s location.


AcanthaceaeUpbeat257

I try using it to bait in fights, send it to one side and have them think you are going one way and swing around.


Ianm9

Damn, hadn’t thought of that. Good tip.


KorsiBear

Don't people do this sort of fakeout with Loba's bracelet too?


TheDoctorYan

That's a bug that some people got lucky with. You always teleport with Loba bracelet if its working properly.


thomsae2

Yea but that bug pissed me the fuck off


KorsiBear

I honestly couldn't recall if it was an intentional thing or not. I feel like that's how it SHOULD work, she might actually have a bit more depth to her kit if you could fake people out with the bracelet


IamShitplshelpme

I've only played Vantage a handful of times, but I realized pretty quickly how easily one can bait an enemy with it. I've also used it to determine where an enemy Vantage may want to go


Snorlaxena

But what if you could shoot the bat and it has a cool down before she can use it again? Like cryptos drone


xOverDozZzed

Exactly. It’s also a video game, make the bat fly back to Vantage because it got scared of bullets. No bat has to die. But the legends tho..


GreppMichaels

Yeah kinda surprised this isn't a feature.

rthesoccerproj2

i hate spiders though


Articuno_710

😏


UnintendedHeadshot

Can we pet the prowlers instead? Or tame them? I would like to ride one into battle even if it eats me after


La5anG

He may be a monster but he’s a monster with a point. She’s also got an exploit which lets her tap strafe at an impossible speed.

I'll assume this will be possible next update now!

I agree as long as the bat can shoot back


Binglebongle42069

Next new champion is just the bat


Federal_Dependent928

Tiny hit box, but low profile on crack


Dana94Banana

Hitbox is 20 pixel wide but you have 0,1HP.


MigrantPhoenix

Anti-passive, immediately dies outside the ring at any part of the game.


Really_Dang_Sad

watson ult should be able to kill it too brought to you by the watson gang


Pawdy-The-Furry

Echo: *gets too close to Wattson ult* *BOOM!* *Echo’s guts splatter onto Vantage’s face as she looks on in horror*


hear4theDough

"blood on da HUD" - a Spike Lee joint


JudJudsonEsq

She wouldn't care, would she? She's killed bigger, smarter shit a lot of times before.


CorruptedAssbringer

>bigger, smarter shit a lot of times before. Usually we call people by their names, but okay sure.


JudJudsonEsq

corpses aren't people >:)


espresso_chain

i really wish crypto could move his drone around like vantage moves her bat. would make the character more viable imo.


Yeetstemm

Fr it’s not fair. In his banners the drone is scanning all by itself


SanSarPK

Honestly that’s probably why they gave that ability to Vantage to be able to move Echo like that, to see how it does in a sense of balancing. But moving Echo around and moving Hack around are two different things as echo is for movement and Hack is for spotting enemies so I bet they won’t give that same kind of quick controls for Hack as they might think Crypto will be too strong.


JudJudsonEsq

Would be kind of insane to be able to direct a second pair of eyes while moving yourself. intel is king, and people hate wallhacks. Making it easier to scan people with the drone at no cost will effectively increase how often you are "wallhacked" in fights.


Duublo121

Except Crypto’s “wallhacks” are VERY different to Seer’s or Bloodhound’s. Crypto needs his drone to have Line Of Sight to get that scan off, putting Hack (who is very loud, being hit, and has 50 health) directly in harm’s way Big risk n reward


SearCone

Crypto is already highly picked in algs. Personally other than the bugs crypto has, I solo que to masters every season with him just fine. Not against the idea of giving him a non drone related passive.


teii

Past the weird drone deploying and the bugs, the only thing I'd really want is to ADS and check nearby squads like how Seer and Vantage are able to use their passive. Bring Crypto in line with his fellow recons.


Muumin_kun

I tried to shoot it first time I saw it


DoctorJordi_

That a f*cking cute screenshot


Iamgayasfucklmao

shooting the bat is the same feeling as dropping the penguin off the map Infront it's mother in Mario 64 ds


dannywarpick

Echo is cute you leave the bat alone.


Articuno_710

🦇🔫


Aenok

Its not at all the same thing. Crypto can grab banners, scout, provide info, res people, and unleashes his ult. Echo literally provides a jump location and thats it. I think its fine as is.


DeliciousWaifood

While we're at it, let people shoot loba's tactical out of the sky and break path's grapple with bullets lmao


InvaderZimbabwe

Seriously! This is why respawn can’t cater to casuals because how the fuck are so many people on board with this idea. The bat literally gives away vantage position and follows her if she moves past 58 meters from it. Why would you want to destroy it in the first place? Just to stop her very vulnerable slow jump?


Wasabicannon

People tend to upvote for the meme "Let us kill the cute little bat!"


Yeetstemm

All while being vulnerable. So yeah it’s balanced


SearCone

Don't forget instant servey beacon scan, instant opening vaults on WE if you have vault key in your inventory, ping banners to know number of squads within 200 meters of crypto and emp counters lots of shit like seer ult, Horizon ult, gibby bubble and more.


Any-Angle-5861

You aren't human but yes, you should be able to shoot Echo to counter Vantage's movement and to kill your own soul.


Oak_Nuggins23

I mean killing humans is totally cool, but we're drawing the line at disease riddled flying rats?


theaanggang

yes


Satanic_Earmuff

Yes


NormalTangerine5205

Indeed


Corsa_NV

A hundred percent


RedditNoly

I have wasted COUNTLESS bullets on the stupid flying rat. LET ME KILL IT. I am tired of sniping thin air because it’s the only indestructible ability that just sits there taunting me.


Articuno_710

Hovering there, menacingly.


ajabernathy

I would like to shoot heat shield emitters


noraborialis

At least if shot at echo flies back to vantage and she has to redeploy it


Jbrowne93

The fact you see it at least tells you a vantage is nearby. She's not crypto, it can't be destroyed as of right now so let's get over this happening unless they address it.


ialsodontexistagain

Dear respawn I would like to shoot this person.that is all,thank you for your time.


Tiny_Echidna7287

Your a monster


Asctkd

It’s simple… we KILL the batman

no


mannyg112

Am i the only one that never actually has him out it’s so inconsistent when you try and move him somewhere else

I love Echo and don't want him to ever get hurt but there's another darker part of me that would think it would be really funny


CorwinOctober

No. Strongly in favor of the bat being Immortal. Too cute.


Kappyskywalker

It’s about sending a message


citrusorangeflower

Why would you want to shoot the cute bat 🥺


goosey3535

Better idea that dosent involved harming an innocent animal, just make nearby shots spook him, causing him to retreat to Vantage and give away her location while putting Echo on a cooldown
