The latest update to the third-person MOBA Paragon brings a new hero, support character balances, and more ways to earn cards.
The newest hero to join the ranks in Paragon is GRIM.exe, who is a ranged-carry with all sorts of tricks up his sleeve. His passive, Overcharge, allows GRIM.exe’s Pulse Cannon to periodically shred the enemy’s armor while Suppression Mode keeps the enemy locked down with an on-hit slow. Deflector Shield makes sure enemies won’t get the upper hand from afar and Displacement Blast keeps melee attackers at bay. Finally, his ultimate, G.T.F.O., fires a high-damage Gyro Targeted Force Orb that homes in on the target.
In addition to the new hero, support characters have also receive a few tweaks. There have been major balance changes to Gadget, Dekker, and Muriel. If you happen to main one of these heroes then be sure to look over the complete patch notes here.
