–Dirty Bomb Profile
Merc Overview Edit
Guardian is a ranged medic armed with a defensive drone, reviving pulse glove and an assault rifle, this South Korean mercenary is equal parts protector and fighter. Guardian is able to revive multiple friendly while using her Sky Shield drone to automatically destroying incoming projectiles. Guardian is a hybrid merc who does not fit neatly into a traditional class role.
A Korean combat medic stationed near a CDA Lab in South Korea always on alert, checking her back and the backs of her team.
Sky Shield (Anti-air Guard) Edit
A devices on Guardian's back that once thrown, deploys as a hovering drone, destroying enemy non bullet/energy projectiles automatically. The drone must have line-of-sight to destroy incoming projectiles. The Sky Shield takes 1s to deploy and last for 12s and covering a 400 unit radius from the drone. The Sky Shield has 60 HP and can be deployed every 20s.
While in the Sky Shield Aimee's Snitch & Vassili's Heart Beat Sensor can still detect friendly players. Thunder's Stun Grenade is also unaffected from the Sky Shield if it detonates outside of it. Phantom's EMP can disable the Sky Shield, and Hunter EMP Arrows which detonate outside the Sky Shield can still disable it.
Bionic Pulse Edit
A ranged AOE revive ability that can revive multiple friendlies from a short distance. Simply pressing the revive button will restore 30HP to one targeted friendly player. Full charging the Bionic Pulse for 1.5s can restore up-to 100HP to those revived inside of it's 250 unit radius. Similar to Phoenix's Healing Pulse the longer you charge it the more effect but the longer the cool down. Only players with direct line-of-sight will be revived (this means sight of torso) this is a bug. Bionic Pulse has a short swap speed of 0.133s, similar to pulling out defibs on other Medics.
Bionic Pulse can not deal damage to enemy players like Defibs found on other Mercenaries.
Incoming Detection System (IDS) Edit
The Incoming Detection System, or IDS for short, acts similar to the Guardian Angel Augment but without the damage reduction. Guardian is given a audio warning of incoming air strike/artillery abilities and the center of the location will be a red halo. This gives about 2 seconds to place the drone to nullity the attack or to flee.
Guardian's Default card is the HU52 Original Rifleman
Augments to abilities:
- Extender: Increase the radius of the shield by 20%. Currently bugged to not display properly
- Get up: Increase the hp given on revives by 30%
- Recharge: Reduce cool down on both abilities by 10%. For bionic pulse this is a flat 1 second reduction.
- Steady: Increase the drone hp from 90 to 109. Currently broken
- Supplies: Reduce bionic pulse cool down by a 20% meaning a flat 2 seconds.
Many audio lines are still buggy and don't activate properly
(Guardian and Hunter is the only two mercs currently doesn't have melee kill taunt voicelines.)

- Her high base stats and good gear give her versatility for offense or defense in many situations
- Guardian is the only Medic to have an Assault Rifle, allowing her to trade shots better against other Assault and Support mercs.
- Guardian does not have any self-sustain abilities, she is better paired with another medic like Aura or Phoenix to maintain health. Combining for an area revive and area heal.
