    Who Vauban Truly Is

    Unlike most Vauban posts this is not an idea for a rework, but rather a reminder of who Vauban is. And who is he right now? Well right now, as it stands, he is a nobody. But the inspiration and theory of Vauban is still there, but with a rework far off on the horizon, I’m afraid people have forgot what that inspiration is. Vauban is our special ops frame. Vauban is our Batman, our space-Batman. He is the elite soldier that is only great because of how he has prepared himself and his intelligence. He is many people’s favorite because of his very human, and underdog feel. We can relate to him because he is not a tank, he is not a weapon of mass destruction, he’s not even the crowd control, but he is the soldier. Being this, he should take on the stealth role a whole new way. Instead of being invisible to the eyes of the enemies, Vauban takes their eyes. As the special ops, he should be the best at rescues and spies. Just like a real special op, he is in and out, blinding the enemy to cover his tracks. Vauban is not the demolitionist, not grenade-man, not is he the crowd-control king, he is our Batman and no other frame fits that role. Now I ask you, the community to rethink your Vauban ideas to fit the inspiration not the meta. Actually I encourage you to understand the inspiration of all frames and build your idea around that. Thank you.

    Vauban Rework Idea

    Vauban’s current state and it’s flaws. Vauban is currently one of our weakest frames. With only two abilities that even have a chance at going high level, even those are out matched by other CC frames. He needs a full scale rework, but what to fix? Well let’s look at his stats first, both normal and prime. Health: 100, 100 Shields: 75, 100 Armor: 50, 100 Energy: 150, 150 Speed: 1.00 Stat wise he seems fine to me for who he is, I would say maybe 25 more health though. His passive is pretty good too. But the abilities, oh boy, they’re just not good. The Tesla grenade needs to be completely replaced. Vauban’s supposed to be an extremely smart engineer frame! I don’t want a tiny little grenade that goes “zap!” But sticking with the idea of a trap, I think the Tesla should be replaced with a mine or a bouncing bettie of sorts. The mine would still be an elemental ability, and maybe you could even do a thing like chroma were if you change the energy color the mine changes. An incendiary one that would do straight damage and set everyone on fire. An ice mine that would blow up and freeze the enemies in its radius, like frost’s avalanche. A toxin one that would be like a gas grenade. And a shock one that would temporarily stun. His second ability should also be completely redone. None of those grenades are useful, but I do like the idea of being able to have multiple abilities in one. I was thinking that the one of them would be a powerful attack drone. Another could be a defense drone which could provide overshields and improved shield regeneration. Then a final one could be a distraction drone, this drone would draw fire from enemies onto himself. Bastille can stay as is. Vortex should be completely changed too. Bastille already serves the same purpose but better. I also don’t think vortex suits our spacebatman as well. I was thinking that his ultimate be changed to a massive EMP grenade, this would knock out all robotics, shields, cameras and lasers for a period of time. With added power strength the ability could do more damage. You may say that this ability is highly situational and in some cases overpowered, but is it? Other frames could kill everything just as quick as vauban could deactivate it, but vauban’s would add more crowd control and be better for spy’s and rescue type missions(which I really think he should be). It would add a whole new level of stealth on corpus and corrupted boards. This rework could add a whole other level of versatility to vauban, and shouldn’t he be as such? Please just consider my idea as I though hard about it and offer your suggestions or criticisms as I will appreciate it. Thank you.
