Dirty Bomb Javelin - Merc Role-Call

Javelin is the 21st merc in Dirty Bomb, and was released Tuesday 22nd August, 2017 alongside the Javelin Update, and the End of the Final Assault Update.

Merc Overview Edit

Javelin is a powerhouse directing ballistic missiles with her rocket launcher, clearing enemies with a bang while providing ammo for her team.

Profile Edit

Javelin is a Norwegian mercenary with a "Viking background".

During the Javelin update trailer, it is revealed that Javelin is sent into London on behalf of her 'employers' in order to test some new hardware developed by the company (this hardware likely being the rocket launcher and smart ammo dispensing armour which are her two main abilities)

Abilities Edit

Rocket Launcher Edit

A two mode rocket launcher with a short warm-up that can either be fired in standard or guided fire mode. With standard mode the rocket is sent in a straight line. In guided mode Javelin has the ability to control the missile for a short time. The rocket its self has 20hp but can deal a maximum 400hp worth of damage on impact. The rocket has a 30 second cooldown.

The guided feature of this rocket launcher can be disabled with use of Phantom's EMP ability.

Smart ammo dispensing armour Edit

Javelin has a new way to give out ammo to her team, this being her ammo dispensing armour, and is the only ammo giving ability that requires no manual interaction to use as the ability automatically gives out ammo when Javelin is within range of teammates.

Javelin's ability also gives herself ammo, however it is only one magazine at a time and has a long cooldown, however it is common for a javelin player to never run out of ammo, especially with the SHAR-C due to it's slower rate of fire compared to other AR primaries in game.

This ability can be completely disabled with use of Phantom's EMP ability

Trivia Edit

General Edit

  • Game files have existed for Javelin since early Alpha, but has not been playable till Open Beta.
  • According to the Splash Damage development team, Javelin is one of the first characters to receive extra detail. [1] Stating:
    • "As the flow of the Dirty Bomb team becomes more skilled and efficient as it scales up, players will begin to see more intricate designs." [1]
  • Upon firing a rocket, Javelin has a chance of saying 'Haduken', which is an obvious reference to Street Fighter's Ryu's Attack.
  • It seems Javelin works mostly for Jackal, due to the information given in her trailer, asking "Is this Jackal?" and threatening to "Give the CDA a call".

Bio Edit

  • According to the original developer post Javelin is a fan of Lutefisk, a traditional dish of some Nordic countries made from aged stockfish or dried/salted whitefish and lye.
  • On Javelin's background and design Nerd1princess, Lead of Art at Splash Damage said:
Javelin is an explosives specialist and she has a strong military background. She's a very tough girl... with a unique mix of strength and abilities. She's also an interesting character visually, and quite different from the other female characters.

–Nerd1princess, Lead of Art at Splash Damage Team [1]
