Bushwhacker – Dirty Bomb Merc Role-Call

Very effective at constructing/repairing objectives or arming/disarming C4 charges, his deployable auto-turret makes a very nasty surprise around corners and choke-points. [2]

Profile[]

Years of teaching Industrial Arts at one of the United States' roughest high schools taught Bushwhacker several key lessons. Firstly, never take anyone else's word on whether a weapon is loaded. Secondly, anything can be fixed with enough duct tape, time and cigars. And thirdly, if you're going to face death every day, you may as well get paid danger money for it. And while education is your passport to the world, as it turns out, designing and deploying your own patented auto-turret is even better.

Very effective at constructing/repairing objectives or arming/disarming C4 charges, Bushwhacker’s SMG is surprisingly useful at range, but his best medium-range weapon is his deployable auto- turret. This tripod-mounted terror makes for a nasty surprise around corners and chokepoints, particularly when placed to surprise enemies from the rear or sides.

Abilities[]

Turret[]

Main article: Turret

Bushwhacker carries an automatic, anti-personnel turret with him that can be deployed in 1.6s and placed almost anywhere on the battlefield. Bushwhacker's turret has 110hp and any targets the turret spots within 0.6s (varies based on loadout card) will be quickly acquired and fired at until they get into cover or is killed. The turret itself can be easily destroyed so sneaky placement is very important.

Weapons[]

Bushwhacker's Default card is the C72 Standard Operative
