Buff idea: sticky traps, dmg and blur.
By - krepalah
Ooh sticky traps sound cool.
Let me tell you what happened couple of days ago. I was watching Johnny Young's(Crypto voice actor) stream on twitch. Then I noticed Daniel Z Klein was also there, in the chat. I took this opportunity to ask him if they were considering any tweaks or buffs for Caustic in the future. His reply was "Every time someone asks me about Caustic, his buff gets delayed by a month". In my head I was like wtf is wrong with this dude. And then another dev came for his support and said "Caustic is a very strong legend atm and is frustrating to play against. The avg. skilled player needs to learn how to play Caustic and shouldnt ask for any buff." I was left baffled.
About Daniel, that’s just a clear joke lol
They already said they are planning on buffing
And do u know the name of the other dev
And a time stamp if u have one
Daniel is a joke.
He’s such an idiot, didn’t he say that Wattson was overpowered?
Yes and he is a fucking bot too, like straight bad at the game
He also broadcast a dev stream from his jerk off den hahaha tissues and lotion in frame and all
Why do you think he was fired from rito buddy?
Buff the gas density a bit. Uptick the damage a bit. Done deal. It’s not hard and it’s all that’s needed. There’s way, way too much thought into this character.
Caustic needs a buff cause he is arse. Even if he was buffed I still wouldn't play him
Blurr only affecting enemies is too strong, needs to affect team also
Itsbonly too strong if the enemies stay for too long in the gas, if ur team will also get affected it will be very bad for team play
Reason he was nerfed to ground is letting team see in gas made him unbalanced
Its necessary to keep him balanced
They didnt remove the blur when he was nerfed to the ground. The blur was removed at the start of S7 if Im not wrong.
But still, a blur effect that affect only the enemy team is very powerful. Imagine if Bangalore had a passive that give the digital visor to all her team: it would be very strong.
But, if we're talking about buffs, if there is no blur added, a good alternative could be to give Caustic resistence against enemies touched by the gas, like if the gas would corrode the enemy gun. Would be a good way to give Caustic something to compensate for his huge hitbox like Gibby (fortify is not enough).
Or maybe the gas could slow the reload and healing speed. Great way to debuff, in a way that make fighting in the gas highly risky for the enemy, without making the canister a get-out-of-jail card since the enemy could finish you with one clip if you were already weakened.
Blur would compensate for the god-awful gas density at least. While Bang's smoke has been fixed, gas remains see-through. I don't necessarily agree with blur effects, I think it's fine for the gas to slow enemies down without blurring, mostly because I hate stupid mechanics that take away player's control (Dpi change, stuns etc)
Personally, I would like to find a better buffing idea than the blur. I mean, we can probably do better, get something more original than another Bangalore smoke. Because if they put back blur, there's probably no more space left for damage or debuffing or something. But that's just my opinion, I may be wrong. What you said is kinda true tho.
Same. Blur just isn't fun to fight against. Maybe a lingering effect for people who went through gas recently? Think rev's silence, but green and shorter
Yeah would be fun, these fucking wraiths could not escape. I it could even interrupt abilities, it could be even stronger.
Anyway, how could we make the enemy want to leave the gas insteadvof csmping in it?
Caustic is a sh*t character anyways no buff could ever make him good
Why are you even here
It's probably a Wraith main that says Caustic is to powerful because he rushed him like a idiot
I don’t know this guy is calling our character bad not op maybe he’s another defensive legend and finally joined the trash talk or it’s a stim until one shot octane who ran in to a trap lol
Because I’m allowed to visit other subreddits without your permission
Why come to our sub Reddit to insult our choice
Because your choices are shit
We still made our choice and we are not going to stop because some idiot wants us to
Its actually the same as it was before dead nerd, but also a stickness (like in R6) it will never been.
Respawn can't make something like STICKY cause ,they just can't (it will work like shit probably) also its too strong.
