Wrecking Ball Right Click

Grappling Claw

HOTKEY: Right CLICK    or    Xbox Left Trigger

Damage: 50 on impact (max speed)
Movement Speed: 20 m/s
Knockback: 10 meters (max speed)
Cooldown: 5 seconds

Tips

  • Wrecking Ball can animation cancel reload with a Grapple
  • Orienting the camera up/ down can change your swing angle
  • If you want to swing around a particular point to stall or deny space, grapple above head height so that you can gain vertical height by aiming up and down

Wrecking Ball launches a grappling claw, enabling him to anchor to an area and swing from it. If he strikes an enemy with a powered-up swing, they’re damaged and knocked back.

Wrecking Ball Shift

Roll

HOTKEY: LEFT SHIFT    or    Xbox Left Bumper

Movement Speed: 10 m/s

Tips

  • Wrecking Ball does not have a critical headbox when in ball form
  • Roll into a wall in ball form to gain enough height to Piledriver
    • Aim at the side of the wall, not directly into
  • Can be cast while in air
  • Hammond reloads as fast inside of Roll as he does outside of it

Wrecking Ball transforms into a ball, increasing his maximum movement speed.

Health: +100HP temporary shield and +100HP per enemy within radius
Radius: 8 meters
Duration: 7 seconds
Casting Delay: .3 seconds
Cooldown: 15 seconds

Tips

  • Temporary shields do not grant enemies ultimate charge
  • Barriers and bubbles block Hammond’s shield

  • 3 meter minimum height to cast (slightly above jump height)
    • Can be cast by jumping off payload
    • Can be cast by rolling into a corner (aim at the side of the corner, not directly at)
