Class- Fire Support
*No backstory yet*
Barrage is a lighter fire support Merc that specializes in skirmishing and setting up ambush spots with her Targeting Darts before launching her uniquely self-launched Rocket Barrage upon her darts, even when they are out of line of sight. Her Ammo Deck essentially turns her into a mobile ammo station for her team, giving her a great amount of team utility on both offense and defense.
Cooldown- 5 sec/dart, 3 darts max
Duration- Unlimited, 3 darts out max
Barrage shoots a single Beacon Dart from her dart gun. After hitting a surface, the dart sticks to it and becomes a target point to which the Rocket Barrage can be called upon. Darts can only be destroyed through EMP effects and explosives.
All placed Beacon Darts are highlighted though walls in colors depending on if the target area can be hit with the Rocket Barrage from your current position: Green if a direct hit can be made with all the rockets, shades of orange for varying amounts of splash damage, and red if no rockets can hit.
Cooldown- 16 seconds
Barrage launches a volley of 6 low-yield rockets at the Beacon Dart closest to the middle of her FOV at a high angle
. The rockets plunge towards the dart and impact in a 4 meter radius around the dart, destroying it and damaging enemies. Each rocket does a maximum of 25 damage with a large amount of splash damage falloff down to 10.
As a barrage is approaching a dart, it will chirp and whine at an increased frequency and speed the closer a barrage is. In addition, the rockets leave a trail in the air starting from the launch point, allowing astute enemies to spot a launch before they can hear it.
Passively resupplies ammo to all teammates and yourself within a 5 meter radius at a rate of 1 magazine/3.5 sec.
Primary- KEK-10, SMG-9, Hochfir
Secondary- S&W, Caulden, M9
Melee- Beckhill, Cricket Bat, Kukri
Alright, another fire support merc! As stated earlier, Barrage excels in ambushing and reacting to enemy pushes before they happen with proper placement of her targeting darts. Alternatively, Barrage can fire a dart and then immediately target it, though this is a predictable and lengthy process compared to the other Fire Support mercs.
