She’s my favourite character in the game because she is extremely cool and has the dropshot as standard weapon plus the hammer. The dropshot is one of my alltime favourite weapons in video games. I love how u can hit almost every enemy with it no matter where hes positioned and the cool trickshot possibilitys that go with it.
I was really a freak with it in GoW4 and since they brought out the Hammer card it its highly usable again in Gears5, allthough with the GoW4 version it was much easier to get headshots.
I noticed a low ping and lettin the shot fall from high in the air will get u easier headshots. The shot will suck itself in the enemies head way more often (like it did in GoW4) than it does with higher ping and low falling height.
But to topic:
I dont know the correct english names, but I’m sure u can follow me
Stim from damage output
explosive healing (not the silverback one)
I don’t get why everybody uses the cold finish. With this setup she’s literally unkillable as long she has a dropshot in her hands.
If she has a locker with 4 drops and ammo, damage and health perks, she can out dps everybody on some maps (like pahanu with spawn setup) because she can constantly spam dropshot rounds without waiting till her health regenerates, while others will get downed and have to wait for a teammate or regenerating health.
Everytime she shoots and hits something (dont have to be a headshot) she heals and gets fresh stim and can directly shoot again. This also makes her crazy tanky and enables her to stand at the front much closer as most other characters, which increases the dropshot shot rate even more . The only time when she can get downed is when she switches dropshots at her locker.
I finally maxed her a few weeks ago and was getting addicted to her highspeed gameplay while doing it. The other day I was playing as JD again since a long time (Op3) and I had to wait so often for my health to regenerate or was getting downed that all the waiting time really annoyed me.
Lizzie can even easily help up downed players as long she has a dropshot round in the air. U can just time it right and get fresh stim after getting hit on your way to your teammate. U can get from cover to cover with dropshot rounds in the air till you at your teammate.
Plus she stops the enemies heavily with the stun effect. One shot at the boss the next at normal enemies and repeat. And I didnt even mention the silverback which can deal out heavy dps or can get shared with a low dps teammate if somebody wants to, because all u need is your dropshot. U can also use the silverback to go far out the base to revive teammates (weapon collector Jack, Kait or Engineer) u just have to shoot at a close enemy once you get out of the silverback, u will get stim while your reviving and will be in i he silverback again before u need to take another shot for fresh health/stim.
And to top it the silverback ult reloads with only a few maxed Hammer and damage perk Dropshot shots like 4-8 (depends on how many enemies u can hit per shot and your headshot skill)
Don’t get me wrong I like cold finish, but there is really no space for it, because Lizzie is by far mightier with this card setup.
