While bonus dmg items are often the best, they arent the most fun ones to use. What are your favourite item upgrades for any naut?

Some of mine;

:chucho: Boom Gas. Allows a new way to plant "mine trap" on the field. Its also extremely rewarding when you leave your bike at Sorona center, teleport to your base to do healing and shopping, looking at the minimap...booom, kill the guy coming too close while sitting in your base.

:jimmy: Flaming Stroller. Situational but fun.
Gives a new effect and style to use jimmys dash. Still balanced and situational in good way; great on aguillon and against Leon, Ksenia etc, but useless against Chucho and Vinnie etc.

:party: I dont play Penny, but I love her ranged AA upgrade. Not only for utility, but mainly because she gets whole new movement animations with it, and her Desperado Penny skin is plain Awesome with it.

:ksenia: Virtual girl. Has situational use, but it is the only upgrade that gives an ability to avoid bodyblocking unlike some lame dashes or orbs that come at base.

:rae: Flashy glasses. If you buy that one before you buy range. It looks so funny that way!

:lolstar: Mr. TNT. When your enemies are grouping together and you trinamite all of them.

:tongue: Red Sneakers. It's funny when you can deal damage to people simply by walking around. Oh, wait... :shady:

Aside of my subjective perverted preferrences, objectively I find Penny's skins the most thought-out ones. TBH I own only these two and ESC Rocco because all the others seem not worth or base skins are good enough. Oh, and Cpt. McPain is awesome too, but I don't play Ted at all.

:shady: Eyedrops changes his AA completely. He was doing charged AA's before Commander Rocket made it cool.

:LeonWink: Before being added to base clones, walking/exploding clones as upgrades were silly fun.

:CocoWink: AA particles. Again, changes her AA pretty significantly and gives it a new utility.

:chew: Homing--ha, just kidding.

:fist: Gnome adds a new utility to his throw, so that's fun.

:tongue: Boots. I love that they have something really unique about them with the DoT.



If you couldn't tell, I like upgrades that add a whole new utility/way to use an ability. I think Gun Penny is kind of underwhelming, but it's a neat concept too.

I don't think it's very objective dude, I think you're just a furry :shrug: No shame, no shame.

Call me Susan if it makes you happy. The furry definition is too vague so I won't argue here. But when I'm being objective I throw away every single bit of my personal aesthetics and actually share my justified cold-blooded opinion. This opinion might change if you can convince me I'm wrong though.

That's a funny way to spell E.S.C. Rocco.

Remember: I before E, except after E.S.C, as in:

"E.S.C. Rocco is the best skin".

...and ignore the first E and I because they're heresy, and something something neighbour something no matter what you say words words weigh.

chucho's retracting spikes-fender: dumb and way too controlable for a knockback, its unlike anything I've seen in this game so it gets my :thumb: of approval.

Ted's sniper toothbrush:
This is easily one of the funniest duration upgrades to make an active frame build for. not only does personal assitant make this character insane, but if you have an ally with some form of cooldown reduction like yuri or ix it becomes a strange game to play.

Yuri's flash forward:
This upgrade is so dumb and broken and does so many useful things simultaneously, the speedup buff and its existance makes no sense to me and I love the fact that it exists for some reason.

Clunk's Reactor Cooler:
Before all the clunk buffs and before the deadlift patch, this was the only way I had to play this character, based on a constant pressure aoe game relying on refreshing HOT bite as soon as it was out of cooldown, lane clearing as quickly as possible + universal charger and being as strict with my respawn schedules and inputs as my brain would allow me to be, This ended up in some fun as hell matches.

This is off topic, as this is about items and not skins, but for the skins there is an easy winner; Gnariachi. Completely new theme music and killing spree, weedlings that play as a band, funny lines, and fits Gnaw character perfectly.

Again, a very strange (very strange) way to spell E.S.C. Rocco.

Here, maybe Hangman will help:

TH_ / B_ST / SK_N / _S / _.S.C. / R_CC_

Hint: it's all in the vowels.

EDIT: on-topic: MPL, of course.

I'm now picturing an undercover mobster Rocco dressed in a classy white tuxedo - this new skin will be known as Ricci. You've heard it here first, folks.
