The only niche that Blitzen Base Kyle (BBK) has over other constructors is his ability to heal himself and allies using his BASE.
However, the amount of healing from the BASE is so minuscule, it isn't even worth taking advantage of.
Here is some testing I did.
In a PL 46 mission by myself, I had 36,683 HP. The BASE only healed 356 of my HP every 5 seconds. (not even 1 percent of my total HP!)
This would only heal 4,272 HP per minute.
Assuming I had 0 HP and I wanted to get my health back to full HP, it would take approximately 8 minutes and 35 seconds of standing on the base.
If I wanted to heal a quarter of my HP, it would take approximately 2 minutes and 10 seconds.
BBK already has one of the smallest bases in the game (4 tiles), meaning that you are forced to stay within a confined space to take advantage of the healing.
BBK is also designed for a more offensive playstyle, meaning that you spend more time clobbering husks than defending the objective and camping on the BASE like most other constructors do. Depending on how you play him, you probably wont be spending much time within the tiny range of your BASE.
To make the Base MD perk actually useful:
- Increase the range of BBK's BASE to 6 or even 7 tiles.
- Reduce the amount of time between heals to 2 seconds instead of 5.
- Double or triple the amount of healing received.
After patch 5.0, BBK has become an extremely fun constructor to play, especially when using the new hammer. I know he isn't the best constructor, I just want him to have something unique and useful over the other constructors.
Thank you for reading.
TL;DR: The amount of healing received by Base MD needs to be increased, as well as Blitzen Base's BASE size.
