I made a new thread for the new naut cause I just got back to the forums after like 3 months lol, so moving my speculation over here.

I also think it's important to note the contents of the news headline, "NEW AWESOMENAUT SPOTTED?" Them not being sure implies 2 things to me: Either another vigilante like Rocko that is mistaken for or eventually joins the Nauts, or a wanna-be Awesomenaut that takes on a self-appointed title as honorary Naut. The fact that a news channel is reporting on it also seems like it might be important.. Is this new Naut a media-hog maybe?

The scroller bar is also important to note, "Zero v. One gridlock holds" and "Galactron's influence over conflict keeps rising." Does this new Naut have something to do with one of those two things? Have the robots grown tired of the stand still and decided to employ a new Naut to shake up the balance and try and gain a foothold? Or has Galactron inspired someone to join the war in hopes of shifting the tides?

Well, they revealed on the Streamisho that this will be a new Overdrive character. That means (unless they just abandoned the theme) it'll be from Calias. I don't think that means anything, but it might hint at it being "technologically advanced" (which is what Yoolip, Chucho, and Jimmy were advertised as).

What sort of abilities do you think the naut will have?

I had a shpeel of ideas on like the third page or something, but this new "slowball" thing is really tripping me up. It doesn't fit any of the devnauts they showed. Then again, I based that on devnauts from April, so...

Alright. Based on the deblur images, I'm going to quickly re-examine some concepts. From what I can gather, it's some sort of robotic probe that acts as a news cameraman.

1. Definitely not based on the Owl Twins. A singular robot with a camera just doesn't seem to match up.

2. Not Valentina, either. Lacks a sort of shield and it doesn't feel like any part of his body will be detachable.

3. yeah that's not a boxer

4. Flamethrower, or something similar to that concept is POSSIBLE, but I believe unlikely based on what I see. He doesn't seem to have any reason he would have a flamethrower-esque basic and an ability to drag opponents.

Now, for my own speculation!

Our friend is a Robot specifically made to be a cameraman on "channel 7 news". After learning of the Awesomenauts he becomes convinced to track down every single thing that the intergalactic mercenaries do, even if it means charging onto the battlefield himself. Refitting his camera to simultaneously work as a weapon as well as outfitting the rest of his body for combat, Derpl Zork would have no real reason to reject the bot eager to jump onto the battlefield. As for skill, that's a difficult one going on design alone...

I'm assuming he'll have some sort of hard CC that allows him to "stop" or "rewind" an opponent, based on the fact his theme seems like cameras and news, as well as maybe buffing allies by "putting a spotlight" on them. The two most likely things I believe his auto will be are a guided missile launcher with the camera projecting the beam it follows, or a sort of Spartan Laser-like weapon which will charge up and then fire a large burst.

It might. Robots are expendable, as evidenced by the literal army of Sentry units in Starstorm. Could be switching the singular AI to control two bodies.

...

If it's truly a camera bot, bringing people in for "interviews" would be a unique way to use the tether pull mechanic. The channeled damage AA could then be an absurdly strong spotlight or something.

Some thoughts. :chew:
