Buff idea: sticky traps, dmg and blur.

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.


daffyduckferraro

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


toxicbooster

Daniel is a joke.


thingamabeb

He’s such an idiot, didn’t he say that Wattson was overpowered?


toxicbooster

Yes and he is a fucking bot too, like straight bad at the game


toxicbooster

He also broadcast a dev stream from his jerk off den hahaha tissues and lotion in frame and all


SiegebraumTheOnion

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.


JSchlattt

Caustic needs a buff cause he is arse. Even if he was buffed I still wouldn't play him


Antishill_Artillery

Blurr only affecting enemies is too strong, needs to affect team also


krepalah

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


Antishill_Artillery

Reason he was nerfed to ground is letting team see in gas made him unbalanced Its necessary to keep him balanced


krepalah

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.


crazy_forcer

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)


some_random_dude12

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.


crazy_forcer

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


some_random_dude12

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?


zXz-dobson-zXz

Caustic is a sh*t character anyways no buff could ever make him good


ryan-is-siren-head

Why are you even here


Moist_BigMac

It's probably a Wraith main that says Caustic is to powerful because he rushed him like a idiot


ryan-is-siren-head

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


zXz-dobson-zXz

Because I’m allowed to visit other subreddits without your permission


ryan-is-siren-head

Why come to our sub Reddit to insult our choice


zXz-dobson-zXz

Because your choices are shit


ryan-is-siren-head

We still made our choice and we are not going to stop because some idiot wants us to


mogo55

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.
