"Who's up for a nice, cold can of death?

Fire Support, 110HP, 420SP.

Before the DB conflicts, Sabertooth was your go-to guy if you wanted somebody dead. He ranked amongst the toughest of hired guns and killed for cold, hard cash. Whether you wanted a syndicate crimelord or state senator assassinated, Saber will do it all.

Sabertooth now works for either the CDA or Jackal upon request (and currency).

Loadouts favour SMGs, Semi-A Pistols, and Shortswords (MORE DETAILS BELOW).

Appearance - Around 1.8m in height, athletic build. "Classic Undercut" hairstyle, brunette. Wears a lightly armoured modern combat suit with an Arctic theme.

Primary Ability - Nitrogen Grenade
Sabertooth tosses a Nade that disperses a high concentration of supercooled nitrogen gas that does damage to enemies over time. All deployables within the nitrogen cloud will destroy any deployables in the cloud in 15 seconds The nitrogen cloud will last for 1 minute and continue expanding outwards up to 20m, however, the cloud can be easily dispersed with any explosive. The Nitrogen Grenade can extinguish Molotovs. Cooldown of 30 seconds applies.(MORE DETAILS BELOW)

Secondary Ability - Ammo Station

Contextual Ability - Cryogenics
When downed, Sabertooth can freeze his body in order to make himself immune to gibbing for 90 damage. Cooldown of 40 seconds applies.

New Weapon - Shortsword
Sabertooth's new melee weapon is the Shortsword.
The Cavalry Saber:

  2. Insulated
    • Reduces the amount of damage his own Nitrogen Grenades do to himself.
  3. Absolute Zero

Further Detail - Nitrogen Grenade
  • Low profile cloud of vapour, white in colour
  • 30DMG for every 3 seconds in the cloud
  • Cloud spreads at a rate of 20m/45sec
  • Cloud can be destroyed with a single explosive, except Molotovs
  • Cloud can extinguish Molotovs
  • Does 60DMG on direct hit

Quotes -

Miscellaneous taunt: "Who's up for a nice, cold can of death?"
Triple Kill: "Now that's cold!"

Authors notes (just rambling): Wow, big suggestion. So basically I wanted to design a merc that could act efficiently as an area denial class without being too campy, e.g. he can't stand in rooms and just Nitrogen the place or he'll get damaged as well.

A good example of his ability is using it to block off the first room in Underground.

    @astoundingShellfish The Nitrogen Grenade? Well, seeing as it only does a measly 30DMG if you stay in there for 3 seconds, and can be dispersed by a single explosive, duration is really the only thing it has going for it.

  • @gg2ez yeah 30dmg on apper doesnt sem like muchm but if it stays there fro one whoel minute,i ts one whoel mnute you deny Tanks hteir only benefits, weaken squishy chracters, and basicly be a dick.

    I also dont feel the abilities fit the character at all.
    if i heard sabertooth id think a quick moving melee specialist, not Dr.freeze going full troll

    @astoundingShellfish Propose that the 30DMG as I said before can be neutralised with an explosive, as I have said before (and you still refuse to acknowledge it). It can be destroyed by:
    • Proxy
    • Nader
    • Fragger
    • Arty
    • Skyhammer
    • Fletcher

    Also, you should probably stop with your "merc is a dick" arguments. That's like saying Fragger is a dick for having frags, and Redeye is a dick for having smoke. It's the character's ability and it's meant to hurt people. If you think it's a dick just because it does what it's meant to, well that's just petty. That argument is invalid.

    Why doesn't to fit the character?
    Sabertooth = Ice-Ace mammal
    Sabertooth = Throws cold stuff everywhere

    But that's not important - it's just a name. (You don't see Bushwhacker, whacking bushes do ya).

    Anyways, if you have any name suggestions for "Mr.Freeze", don't forget to share them.

    Pretty much. It was a poorly thought out idea - I'll rework it sometime.

    I actually really like the idea of liquid nitrogen being used as a weapon, though having it be an EMP that does damage is not the best way to handle it IMO
