Beast Character Mod
Brains meets brawn in this fully realized Beast mod. Built as an agile bruiser, Hank's well designed to go from target to target with ease. Attacks that afford a wide range of style and effects give Beast a solution to every problem. Right the wrong of Beasts absence as a playable character with this dope character mod! AbilitiesAttacksSharp Check
Swipes at the target, before delivering a powerful shoulder check with knockback.
Execution - Relatively basic like most starting attacks, with the added bonus of doing two strikes (each attack does less damage than your typical starter). The second hit can be directed to hit a second target and do knockback. Beast steps forward during attack instead of doing a short slide to the target, making the attack feel much smoother.Furball
Curled into a ball, Beast rolls forward, battering enemies on impact. (press and hold)
Execution - Much like any bruiser charge attack but with less damage, less knockback, and better turning. Well suited as a controlled travel attack. Good for travel as it unlocks early, allowing ep cost to be kept low. Corrosive Concoction
Throws exploding canisters of a deadly mixture, doing radiation damage over time.
Execution - The lack of enemies with radiation resistance makes this attack effective against nearly enemy type. With decent range, a wide spread, and decent blast radius, this move is well suited for dealing with the more mobile and ranged mobs.Propeller Kick
A spinning hand stand knocks nearby enemies off their feet.
Execution - Beasts signature radial attack. Well suited for tripping up surrounding enemies to give Beast an edge over thick mobs. Ravage
Rush towards the target, and deliver a flurry of clawed swipes with increased critical chance.
Execution - A very useful attack for closing in on distant, and ranged enemies. With multiple strikes, and an increase critical hit chance, this move has the highest damage potential of all of Beasts basic powers. Be sure to compensate for the short wind up of this attack when necessary. Zap Trap
Sets a small trap that sends out a radial wave of electricity when enemies are near.
Execution - The electricity damage of Zap Trap can be very effective at dealing with physical resistant enemies. A useful set it and forget it attack that can stun and damage enemies for a time while Beast is free to move onto other enemies and attacks. Pouncing Pound
Leaps forward, causing a radial ground smash on landing, knocking back surrounding enemies.
Execution - Another travel attack that adds to Beasts agile repertoire. A more controlled and accurate version of colossus' and toad's leaping pound attacks. Pouncing Pound is very effective at breaking up thick mobs near and far. A great tool for getting small mobs away from the buffs of mob leaders.XtremesORBITAL BOMBARDMENT
Calls powerful lasers down to smite enemies.
Execution - A more unique Xtreme attack for a bruiser character, Orbital Bombardment is Beasts only energy damage move. This Xtreme is able to hit enemies on the other side of walls and hits with pinpoint accuracy.BEASTIAL AWAKENING
Beast resurrects himself from the dead if he dies within boost lifetime.
Execution - Just like Sabretooth and Wolverines revive Xtremes. This move is very useful when facing down enemies you expect may be able to down Beast.BoostsBerserk
The animal within is let loose, adding bleed damage to all physical attacks for a time.
Execution - Powers that hit as many enemies as possible are a great way to spread this bleed damage.Formulate
Beast coordinates the team, reducing EP cost, and increasing the level of all skills.
Execution - Formulate is the other side of the buff coin, improving the effectiveness of the entire team. The reduced EP helps to counteract the cost of increased skills. I've never had a desire to use skill increasing boosts with anyone as i tend to keep my powers at an affordable skill level. Anyone who feels the same may enjoy this version of this boost type.PassivesUncaged
Instincts and cunning allow an increase in attack and critical hit chance. Increases to reveal cloaked enemies (level 7).
Execution - The increase to critical chance makes this type of passive more useful for those who don't get much use out of attack due to their play style.Tameless Reflexes
Increases chance to dodge melee attacks. Increases to unlock double jump attacks (level 7).
Execution - By far my favorite passive for its added agility moves. The double jump results in radial damage upon landing. The dodge chance and ability to jump off walls with the double jump is a big help for keeping from getting cornered. Some locations are no longer out of reach with the help of double jump.Leadership
Increases entire teams combo xp gain, and critical chance
