–Dirty Bomb Profile
Merc Overview Edit
With a big gun, lots of ammo, and devastating Frag grenades, this aggressive pointman is a straight-up player-slayer, whether assaulting objectives or defending them. This aggressive pointman is also made to stay at the front and keep returning bullet with his big gun.
Fragger’s commanding officer described him as “really, REALLY good at soldiering." Always at the sharp end of urban operations that required guts at both ends of the bayonet, he received multiple decorations for outstanding bravery.
Civilian life, alas, proved less rewarding. His old comrades would ask what he did after leaving the army and he’d have no choice but to admit he was mainly working as a motion capture performer for computer games. The looks on their faces ranged from pity to “I Have To Break Ties With This Guy Immediately.” Now he’s back where his tactical skills are more directly applicable: kicking down doors and taking names.
With a big gun and lots of ammo, this aggressive point man is a straight-up player-slayer, whether he's assaulting objectives or defending them. He should be at the very front of the frontline, relying on teammates to heal/revive him and resupply him with ammo while he lays down a hail of gunfire and frag grenades.
Frag Grenade Edit
Carrying up to one grenade at a time, Fragger can throw these towards the enemy, exploding after a short fuse to deal 170 damage over a 32cm area. When throwing a Frag grenade, Fragger counts down the fuse with his other hand. It is very useful for clearing out rooms or flushing out the enemy.
Upon selection in full profile:

- Oohh...i thought I saw my momma for a moment, but she lives in Vermont, does aromatherapy, that makes no sense...anyways, back to killing!
- Alright, back to killing!
- There's caffeine in that stuff, right? Glucose? Whiskey? Candy?!
- Doc, you're amazing! I should marry you and polish your stethoscope!
- BOOM! I'm back!
Knifing an enemy player:
- I just went in, reached out, and touched ya!
- You're not even worth a waste of bullets on!
Finishing an enemy with a melee:

- Adios! (Farewell)
- Form is temporary, Class is permanent! (I'm the Greatest!)
- I won't even dignify that with a response.... Other than that which I just said. (Uninterested)
- I just gave you a second asshole, asshole! (Screw You!)
- One more for team US!
- Call that a wound, ye? Because I also would call that a wound, auch!
- You'd best do better than that!
- Have you considered a second career? Like you could be a... corpse!
- You amuse me with your naivete!

- When throwing a Frag grenade, Fragger counts down the fuse with his other hand.
- Fragger resembles the CEO of Splash Damage, Paul Wedgwood; it is unknown if this is intentional.
- Fragger's portrait shows him with the M2400, which is Thunder's LMG, on the other hand Thunder's portrait shows him with the K-12, which is Fragger's LMG.
- He considers all non belt-fed weapons "Pop-guns" (based on his in-game quotes) ["If it ain't belt-fed, it's just a pop-gun!"]
- While originally able to hold 2 Frag grenades with a 30 second cooldown for each, but due to a "Fine Tuning" update, he now only holds one Frag grenade, but the cooldown has been reduced to 17 seconds.
- Fragger's beta card shows him with an army helmet, and much more militaristic gear emphasizing his soldier character.
- He has taunts directed towards Thunder.
- As of the Containment War update, Fragger's Frag grenades can no longer instantly gib full-health players within it's maximum damage range (32cm), however, players below 80 health will be gibed.
- Despite been speculated to be American Fragger counts starting with his thumb on a more European style.
- During the Rogue en Vogue event, Fragger was one of the suspects chosen in the fourth week, alongside Fletcher, Kira, and Redeye.
- Fragger's quote "Eat pineapple!" it's a reference to the "classical" frag grenade, the MK 2, due to it's similar appearance of, indeed, a pineapple
Beta Info Edit
- Fragger was originally called Dazzler who had a LMG (Light Machine Gun) as a primary, an AR (Assault Rifle) as a secondary, a frag grenade and flash bangs. He was later split in Fragger and Thunder for balancing issues.
Community Opinions Edit
- Currently, the best well rounded loadout for Fragger is the M62 Power Rifleman due to the Unshakeable and Explodydendron percs, as well as including the more accurate M4 as the primary. The M62 loadout is well rounded and performs well when pinned down to stationary positions.
- The M93 Standard Rifleman is currently the best run and gun loadout. With Explodydendron, Focus (exceptionally useful when dealing with aimpunch), and Sneaky. The M92 also includes the M4 as the primary as well as a cricket bat with more melee range. Overall, this is the best loadout to turn Fragger into a more effective killing machine.
