–Dirty Bomb Profile
Merc Overview Edit
His molotov grenade is perfect for damaging groups of enemies or area denial, while his deployable Ammo Station lets his team-mates resupply themselves.
Profile EditEach trade has their longstanding professional dilemmas. Every Fire Support officer wonders if one day, sooner or later, they'll have to call in an airstrike on their own position to save the rest of their unit. Not a decision to be taken lightly, and particularly not with White Phosphorus. It was, apparently, a decision Stoker was happy to make. When he talks about what incendiary explosives can do, listen to him. He knows what he's talking about. Quite what such a formerly senior officer is doing working as a humble frontline mercenary is anyone’s guess.
Stoker’s napalm grenade is perfect for damaging groups of enemies, or area denial: very useful for closing off chokepoints, locking down an area or defending Objectives. His deployable Ammo Station lets his team-mates resupply themselves: place it behind cover or around a corner so it doesn't get destroyed by enemy fire.
Molotov Grenade Edit
Stoker has one molotov grenade on a 40 second cooldown (4 second if you cancel the ability), which when thrown will cover an area with fire for approximately 10 seconds . The fire will appear blue to players on Stoker's team, and will deal heavy damage to enemies inside of the ignited area (including to Stoker himself) but will not cause damage over time when an enemy enters and exits its area of effect (it will not set enemies on fire), and will not hurt allies. Additionally, a thrown molotov grenade will deal extra damage on impact with an enemy. The fire from a molotov will destroy enemy deployables like health and ammo stations and instantly detonate placed enemy explosives, such as Fletcher's sticky bombs and Proxy's mines, but will not affect a planted C4 charge, friendly or otherwise. The fire from a molotov grenade will do little damage to the EV (about half its health, if the EV stays inside the fire for its full duration), making Stoker a poor choice to disable the EV.
Fire from the Molotov Grenades can be put out with explosives like Nader's Grenade Launcher, Fragger's Frag Grenade, Flecher's Sticky Bomb, Skyhammer's airstrike marker and the subsequent airstrike, and smoke from Red Eye's Smoke Grenade.
Ammo Station Edit
A deployable station that can be placed almost anywhere on the field of battle. It will gradually resupply ammunition to nearby players, including enemy mercs. The ammo station has a 25 second cool down.
Upon selection in full profile:
- Stoker. Pleased to meet you.
Upon killing an enemy:
- Bloody take that.
Upon throwing a molotov:
- Flame on!
- I'll burn them out.
- You're all just fuel to me.
- Incendiary out!
- Ahhhhh, the great British barbecue.
- Bonfire ahoy!
- I've always wanted to be a fireman!
Upon killing an enemy with a molotov:
- Ohh, wicked burn.
- Can you smell something... burning?
Upon deploying an ammo station:
- Ammo station up!
- Ammo station here!
- Ammo station, like a candy store for hungry young guns.
Upon an ammo station being destroyed:
- What a ray of sunshine you are. (Sarcastic)
- Oh, snap. (Sarcastic)
- Awww, look at you all dressed up as soldiers. That's cute. (Sarcastic)
- Why you got to get all up in my grill, eh..? (You're Dead!)
- Can you smell something burning? (You're Dead!)
- That's quite enough from you. (Farewell)
- Empty threats aren't really my style. (I'm The Greatest!)
- Tra-la-la... (Uninterested) [Two instances. One quiet, one louder]
- Okie-dokie, then. (Uninterested)
- You're not nearly as cute as you think, you know? (Screw you!)
- You're like a bad penny. (Screw you!)
- Oh, bugger off. (Special Taunt #1)
- You're starting to annoy me. (Special Taunt #2)
- Oh, now you're listening. (Special Taunt #3)
- No I, uh... don't smoke. (Special Taunt #4)
- Nice bit of kit, that. (Special Taunt #5)
- Slack effort, that. (Special Taunt #6)
- I say... (Special Taunt #7)
- Based on his sound files, he seems to have a stereotypical, posh British accent.
- In closed beta, the ID card on his chest read Harold Sands, which was presumed to be his real name.
As of the Containment War Update, the ID card on his chest now reads Garnell Corjin, which is now assumed to be his real name.
- It was previously assumed from the Containment War update that Stokers name was Garnell Corjin. His real name is Harold Sands.
- One of the lines Stoker says when he tosses a molotov is: "Flame On." This could be a reference to super hero The Human Torch of the Fantastic Four , which says "flame on" every time he activates his fire powers.
- Friendlies Stoker's flame have a blue-ish color while enemies Stoker's flame is more red/orange, keep this in mind when you see fires.
- During the Rogue en Vogue event, Stoker was one of the suspects chosen in the second week, alongside Phantom, Rhino and Sparks.
- Stoker was the second prime suspect in the Rogue en Vogue event.
- One of Stoker's air tanks has a bullet hole in it, making it useless if in an actual fire.
