get three shields and use them as javelins

its the new meta

I made a build. And it was the most fun I had in this game in a long, long time. This is even better than my peasant huntsman with rocks and frying pan. If your goal isn't necessarily to be on the top of the leaderboard each game or if you are wondering why so many people insult you for using a maul or rapier, just give this build a shot.

It's actually viable and beginner friendly, it's a new mechanic that people aren't used to yet. The only problem is that you need to switch to your fists to be able to kick or defend against kicks. You can still block unlike other brawlers if you keep one of the shields but throwing them in people's faces is way more fun.
I'm using flesh wound, it's a must have perk for all meme builds.
Cat isn't the strongest perk either but it fits my playstyle well. Could pick fireproof instead.
Also armor is a matter of taste, some prefer chest, others head, for this guy in particular I wanted the head to be safe and with all the archers I want a t2 helmet.

I played 3 games now and did better than expected. It takes a while until you learn not to throw your shields too far so you can pick them up again and again. Unleash giant frisbees upon the enemy!

Ok thx. I'll try out your gamma and resolution, they seem pretty nice looking and a good compromise between performance and aesthetics

any and all projectiles are effected by the huntsman perk so yes you can whip a shield across map and kill an archer

just like the ye olde days....e

Gamma is just gonna make it brighter and eventually add that white blur you see in his screenshot. It has no effect on the game's performance.
