In VT1 I played almost exclusively as Witch Hunter, he had good ranged weapons, especially the pistols were awesome, as they were quite powerful and had a magnificent firerate and ammo capacity. And for melee you had the Rapier, the most unique weapon in all of VT1 as it was the only melee weapon that could shoot, and the rapier itself was quite good both when dueling with stormvermin and when slicing through the crowd.
But now my favorite hero is the Mercenary, simply because he feels really powerful, the halberd is great against both hordes and strong enemies and with the passive ability melee combat gets even more fun.
And the shotgun feels just magnificent! It’s a one shot kill for almost every enemy and it’s also a great horde thinner.
And the active ability of the mercenary is top, knocking down enemies and healing your friends, what more could you ask for.
Did you find a new favorite?
