Astrix, the Scout Sentry, is a legendary pathfinder from the Outback. She excels in using her Boomerang to set up combos with her rifle’s Slugger Round for big damage from the rear lines.
Primary Weapon – Single-Action Rifle
Throws a boomerang, dealing Damage to the targeted enemy before returning to this Hero. If Astrix retrieves her boomerang, it reduces the cooldown of the next Boomerang!
NOTES: Boomerang returns to the initial position it was fired from. Can be missed by changing cover points before it returns. Astrix will still catch the boomerang if it touches her while she’s Stunned, Lifted, or otherwise incapacitated. A missed Boomerang can be picked up by moving to where it landed. Astrix cannot pick up a Boomerang thrown or dropped by an opposing Astrix.
Fires a heavy shot towards the targeted enemy hitting the first enemy caught in its path, dealing Damage and Stunning the enemy.
Wingclip - Passive
Enemies damaged by Boomerang take additional Bio-Chem Damage per second and become Rooted.
Bird of Prey - Passive
Whenever Boomerang strikes an enemy, it has a chance to bounce to a nearby enemy target before returning. Each bounce recovers Astrix’s Health when the Boomerang is recovered.
Where Can I Get Astrix!?
Astrix will be available through Crates, and through Co-Op Raids!
Well this looks VERY interesting. Great idea for a unique weapon and the abilities seem to compliment it nicely with being OP. But, we’ll see how she plays once released.
My only reservation is her name. Why Astrix? If she’s a play on Australia, Aborigines and the boomerang, i don’t get the name. Something like Opal or Kylie (an Aboriginal word for boomerang) would make sense.
let’s see, we got Deadshot(Hideo, with his mask and arm guns), Col. Flag (Col. Wesson, nuff said), El Diablo (Ghoul),Slipknot (Fischer), Poison Ivy (Briar), The Joker (Cross’s skin)and now we got a female Captain Boomerang (Astrix).
The devs are definitely fans of Suicide Squad.
Disclaimer: Not that its a bad thing. And i definitely CAN’T wait to unlock her.
P.S. Does that mean we’ll have another Rangers month?
