Paragon: The Overprime New Hero Crunch Ready to Punch in Latest Update

New Hero: Crunch
New Hero: Crunch Netmarble

The private combat bot Crunch has come to life and is ready to use his fists of justice in the latest update for Paragon: The Overprime.

Ready to Smash

Crunch has joined Paragon: The Overprime in a quest to find out why he became sentient. He uses his gigantic fists to deal physical damage to enemies.

Although Crunch is a melee hero, he can charge forward to deal physical damage to enemies and slow them down for a set duration.

Crunch can hit multiple enemies with a wide swing as well, so he can clear mobs without a problem. Furthermore, he can stun enemies with his Crunch Blow ability, which can be enhanced to launch enemies airborne.

Revenant Nerf

This patch brought balancing adjustments to certain heroes as well. Revenant has been such a strong hero as of late that the developers nerfed some of his abilities to give his opponents a fighting chance.

For instance, the Storm of Bullets reloading effect has been removed in certain situations. According to the devs, when Revenant uses Storm of Bullets while Mortal Shot is in effect, he can fire eight consecutive shots without reloading. As a result, he could easily achieve the highest DPS in Paragon: The Overprime during the early stages of the match. The removal of this effect can prevent early game snowballing with Revenant.

Revenant’s Mortal Shot has also been rebalanced. It now deals less damage at level one but it becomes more damaging at level four. This change was made because the developers originally designed Revenant to be weak in the early game, but become gradually stronger as the match progresses.
