So I was playing earlier today and talking with an online community I’m part of and we got on the topic of Outcast Engineer. The topic mainly circled around the fact that OE is thoroughly lackluster and needs a rework. Some of the issues came up like the fact that he doesn’t actually have a real passive, as his passive is linked to his minigun. When you consider that every other class has a passive that actively aids in gameplay for individuals or even teams (Paced Strikes, Dance of Seasons, Witch-Hunt), this passive “Bardin Builds Pressure but only when you -actively- do it yourself” is fairly weak.
So here’s the suggestion: Consider building pressure a part of his minigun career skill as opposed to a passive so that you can free up the passive for… PISTON POWER! Remove it as a talent and make it his passive where every 15 (or even 20 seconds), the pistons in his armor fully level up to deliver a blow with massive stagger. It makes sense for his character (as the pistons are in his armor, not the weapon) and makes him a far more valuable member of the team.
TL;DR: Make Piston Power Outcast Engineer’s Passive ability, and combine “Build Pressure” with the Crank Gun ultimate to make OE a more valuable member of the team.
