WendyAndJICE Selection


  • Wendy and JICE, the Light Bringers
    • Innate Ability: Phase Cannons - Every attack from Wendy and JICE deals a minimum of 50 Damage plus a small percentage of the target's max health. This is capped at 1000 damage.
    • Active Ability: Shining Light - Wendy and JICE shoot a devastating beam of light in a target direction, passing through everything and lingering for 7 seconds. If an Enemy is hit by the beam, it deals 5% max health damage. If it continuously hits this target, it deals an additional 12% max health damage per second.

SedAndSAIRO Selection


  • Sed and SAIRO, the Shadow Fighters
    • Innate Ability: Shadow Runners - Sed and SAIRO only shoot from one of their Cannons, so they have an increased fire rate. Also, when using Shadow Seeker, Sed and SAIRO gain an additional 50% bonus movement speed.
    • Active Ability: Shadow Seeker - Sed and SAIRO stealth for up to 15 seconds and upon exiting stealth, gain the ability to shoot a Laser Shadow for 15 seconds. By shooting the Laser Shadow, and if it hits an enemy, it immediately deals 25% max health damage. This damage is capped at 1000 damage.

NikaAndTERA Selection


  • Nika and TERA, the Earth Users
    • Innate Ability: Earth's Will - Nika and TERA has additional resistances, use less power to shoot, has more damage, and more health.
    • Active Ability: Force of Earth - Nika and TERA launches a rock in a line that falls off and deals damage based on time traveled. Minimum damage that can be inflicted is 250.

KhaleedAndZHEN Selection


  • Khaleed and ZHEN, the Red Barons
    • Innate Ability: Hot Headed - Whenever Khaleed and ZHEN take damage that would put them below 50% health, their resistances are increased by 1% of what their max health equals. They also increase their damage by 10% for 15 seconds. After 15 seconds has elapsed, this effect will wear off.
    • Active Ability: Full Auto - Khaleed and ZHEN replace their bullets with *Red Bullets* which deal 1.35x damage and consume no power for the next 15 seconds. After 15 seconds, this effect will wear off, replacing bullets, damage, and power consumption back to normal. Cooldown of 25 seconds.

MekaFighters also has a new Meka coming soon!

JamesAndJK1 Selection


  • James and JK1, the Dawning Shadows
    • Innate Ability: Intuitive Domain - Whenever an enemy is taken into *Dark Barrier*, 1% of their total stats combined (Resistances, Max Power, and Current Health) is converted into bonus damage for James and JK1. This bonus damage is capped at a max of 100 per enemy. Upon Dark Barrier enemy, your damage will be placed to default.
    • Active Ability: Dark Barrier - James and JK1 place a Barrier in a small area that nothing can leave for 10 seconds. Enemies in this are forced to fight their way out of it. If they deal 30% of the person's casting this health, the barrier is immediately destroyed. James and JK1 can *recast* this ability at any time, using the same button that would activate this ability, to destroy the barrier early. If James and JK1 die while casting the barrier, it will stay up regardless.
