The Fixer’s Traits
Thermal Vision (Active): The Thermal Vision is The Fixer’s active ability. It allows him to see the heat signatures of his enemies during the duration that it is active. It can provide a massive advantage over the opponent, and with the combination of the sniper, The Fixer can inflict enormous damage to the other team.
Shrapnel Rounds (Passive): The Shrapnel Rounds is The Fixer’s passive ability. It slows down an enemy for a short duration when damaged by firearms. So it’s a great benefit to using the sniper if you don’t land a headshot the first time.
The Fixer’s Perks
- Shredder Rounds adds more damage to weapons and allows you to carry more ammunition.
- Berserker gives you the ability to reload while sprinting.
- Helping Hand allows you to revive teammates faster.
- Bounce Back reduces the health regeneration delay.
- Life Drain makes it so killing an enemy will heal you for a considerable amount in short duration.
- Headstrong gives an additional 25 armor.
The Fixer is a high skill cap playstyle that is worth exploring. If you are using the D3D-i rather than the sniper rifle, it’s important to hit the double headshot. If you miss, it will be difficult to compete with assault rifles. But if you are confident with your sniping, definitely use the Tyr. Just make sure you are reloading in between as the magazine size is only 2 rounds.
Plus, it’s good to go for the double-tap since it has a quick fire-rate that can inflict a total of 120 damage just from body hits. Another good strategy is to use the Warrant since it can compete against SMGs. Though, it is not very useful in mid-range.
As for the thermal vision, it’s best to throw down your cluster smoke and use the ability to see through it to gain an advantage over your enemies. It’s great in a corner where you know an enemy might be rushing. Plus, it’s useful in holding down a more extended angle. So buying the Cluster Smoke early in the game is essential.
Also, it would help if you learned to take advantage of The Fixer on your opponent’s team. You can double up the smoke and try to take over in that area.
