CHAMBER

Continuing with our recent focus of sharpening the strengths and weaknesses of the Sentinel role, this update aims to push Chamber’s ability to hold territory with his unique arsenal of weapons. The changes should provide you with more access to the Headhunter (Q) as a save or sidearm without draining your econ, and increase the clear strength of Chamber’s ultimate compared to the Operator.

Headhunter (Q)Price decreased 150 >>> 100
Tour De Force (X)Firing rate increased 0.7 >>> 0.9
