New character - Grendel
We had to wait for a long time for another Sniper Mech to be added to the game and oh boy, all that waiting was worth it. Compared to Estaque, who even after the buff takes ages to deploy and actually do something, Grendel swaps between walking and fighting modes nearly instantly.
When comparing Grendel to other Snipers, her DPS is a bit worse than base Xiao Lin, but this still puts her close to the top. Still, Grendel provides way more utility than base Xiao. She's the second employee in the game that can Reflux Barriers (which means that she not only removes them from enemies but also deals additional damage based on the value of the barrier), which means that in PVP she can counter some of the current meta employees like Rearmed Esterosa and Awakened Jake that rely on barriers to survive.
She also has permanent Hitstun Immunity allowing her to constantly damage her enemies, but she's pretty squishy herself and this combined with 0 Evasion makes her an easy target for roadrager Kang and Elizabeth.
Should you pull her? Yes!
