Guide to Viking
Well-armored and can withstand quite a lot of damage.
It’s short, which lets it avoid being hit in some cases.
Fairly stable, wide and heavy — it’s hard to push a player who’s using Viking, make him lose balance or knock off his target and make him miss.
Sometimes it isn’t fast enough to reach the enemy base on full health without using drops or supplies.
The shortness often makes it difficult to attack targets which are located on a higher level than Viking.
Viking feels best in company with mid-ranged and long-ranged turrets – Smoky, Thunder, Ricochet, Railgun and Shaft. Viking can also be used with short ranged weapons in medium-small maps, but it has to keep hidden.
Preferred game modes and maps
Viking is perfect for any game mode and map. On large maps Viking usually stays in defense, and supports the attacking teammates with fire, on small maps — Viking itself successfully attacks. When using supplies, it becomes a more versatile hull.
