Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome to our final preview from the upcoming Bioshock Infinite HeroClixset, which releases today! As we prepare to say farewell to Columbia, we look at a true soldier and a man who served in the United States military, Captain Cornelius Slate.
Slate has a trait called We Honor Our Fallen which allows him to use Poison. In addition, each time a friendly character is KO’d, Slate may immediately be placed in a square that character occupied when they were removed from the game.
Slate starts out with Willpower and Exploit Weakness on his top three clicks. He also has a special power that lets him use Barrier. When Slate does, after the action resolves he may use Pulse Wave as a free action as if he occupied the same square as one of the placed markers. With his 6 range this could make it very easy for him to protect friendlies from his use of Pulse Wave or separate an opposing character to try and pull off a single-target Pulse Wave.
On the second half of Slate’s dial he gains the use of Charge and Blades/Claws/Fangs. His attack values spike to an 11 and he now possesses Battle Fury. Although Slate will no longer be able to use his 6 range to make range combat attacks, he will be able to ignore Shape Change and cannot be targeted by Incapacitate or Mind Control.
Slate is a 75-point unique character with the Founders, Monster, Soldier and Vox keywords.
Thanks for reading! Please join us for more upcoming and exciting HeroClix previews. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!!
