    NIKOLAS – The Butcher – Support

    Nikolas comes from a long line of high end chefs. His father, grandfather and all his aunts tried to show him the nuances of cooking, but Nikolas seemed to only be fascinated by the butchering of animals. Soon this became an obsession and he now has a bloodthirsty desire to butcher animals and feed them to the legends of the Apex Games. He will feed them at any cost…and if there are no animals…well…



    * Passive Ability – Fresh Meat: When NIKOLAS kills an enemy (killed not downed) chunks of meat are spawned. These chunks heal HP of NIKOLAS and his squad when picked up. They vary from 5hp healed to 30hp healed and 1 meat chunk to 5 dropped.

I have to avoid distance/g7/charge rifle gameplay. “”

     

    Bobby Muldoon asks, “Season 3’s meta, to me, was largely based on sniping. I really loved this because I am not that great in close combat, but was able to drastically increase my average damage and kills by focusing on ranged combat.
