But better.

I feel like Reaper can never get a break. At launch Roadhog was basically larger meaner Reaper with a CC and remained that way for a while, and Reaper floundered with them only giving miner buffs.

Now Torb with overclock does more tank busting then the character who is the defacto tank buster.
Got Jalter in Fate GO. Wil probably be the only limited 5* I get with how the game treats me though.

Not Reaper’s only role.

He’s also meant to be a high DPS flanker.

Which Torb CANNOT do.

But he kinda sucks at flanking compared to the other flankers.

No he doesnt. His wraith form gives him a 50% speed increase and can be cancelled. it also can be used as a quick reload like mccrees roll.

Surprisingly i found myself doing much better with reaper after spending months with doomfist. They have a very similar flow in a lot of situations.

Get in. Deal some big damage. get out.
The best advice i can give is to use your wraith form to escape and not to initiate
Everything unrelated to elephants is irrelephant

Reaper isn't a flanker, lol.

The second people see you, you get out or you die, there's not enough movement to make people keep turning their heads like Genji or tracer have, and his escape isn't as clear like Doomfist.

He doesn't need to. His rivet gun is reliable enough now to headshot squishies at range. The hit zone of his bullets is actually very generous. I use him like McCree now.

Reaper is meant to be a strong DPS flanker yes but it's kind of hard to do when it takes an hour to pick a location due to the buggy platform aiming, another hour for you to leave your spot and another hour to move again once you're there. Combine that with the fact you whip out your loudspeaker to announce your arrival and have a nice bright red beacon of light to signal to everyone where you are.

I liked the changes they made to Reaper and it made him MUCH more viable but they need to straight up get rid of his teleport or make it MUCH faster. It's the worst move in the game imo.

He's still a good tank buster, Bastions about the only one who's better in general.

But he's a terrible flanker.
