I tried to play with Symettra.
It seems that the new symettra is doing well.
The strategy is that when attacking barrier the amount of damage increase.
The increase is NOT because of attacking barrier.
The increase happens because well, it hits. I just need to hit something. Guys. Barriers. Anything. As long as it hits, the dps increases.
Also attacking barriers are usually easy. Barriers are large and non moving.
Once the barrier is destroyed, my symettra is doing 180 dps and I can easily connect and destroy tanks with her weapon as long as I keep hitting something within those 2 seconds.
I wonder how my damage work if I hit for 1 second and then miss and then hit another for 1 second? Will it stay at 180 dps because I don't exactly miss for 2 seconds.
The increased ammo when attacking barriers ensure that when the barriers are destroyed my symettra has full ammo and max damage.
That's the key.
