The fiery bomb queen, Betta La Bomba, brings her explosive arsenal to Paladins with the newly released Monstercat update. This hefty content patch also implements plenty of balancing changes and improvements.

New Champion

Betty La Bomba is called the “Bomb Queen” for a reason. Her main weapon is the grenade launcher, and when fired, the grenade bounces and explodes after two seconds in a small area.

Her Alt-fire, Cluster Grenade, is where she launches a special grenade that creates additional explosives depending on the number of enemies hit. The initial explosion deals a small amount of damage, while secondary explosions go off after three seconds and deal 500 damage in an area.

Hail of Bombs is Betty’s first ability. She throws a magazine that looks like a small barrel containing a chock full of explosives. Then, the explosives would launch upward and land randomly in a 20-unit radius, dealing 390 damage.

Her second ability, Explosive Personality, lets her jump forward up to three times before it goes on cooldown. Any enemy within a 35-unit radius is knocked back and receives 300 damage. This is pretty good whenever she is in a pickle, though it can be used offensively as well.

Long Live the Queen, her ultimate, is a funny yet damaging ability where she summons the biggest bomb in her kit and rides it toward her enemies. Once the bomb hits, enemies caught in the explosion get 1,700 damage and are knocked away from each other. Reactivating this ability before the bomb hits anything will send it flying by itself in a straight line.

You can read and learn more about her talents and cards on the official website of Paladins.
