Hi-Rez Studios released a new video for Paladins: Champions of the Realm today that gives an overview of the abilities of the game’s newest champion, Lex.
Lex, the Hand of Justice, dual-wields pistols, which he fires with his basic attack. His In Pursuit attack switches the game to a third person perspective, and has players locking on and firing at the closest enemy or deployable to them.
His first ability is called Retribution. Players will start every game with a Retribution Target, letting them see that target through walls and also garnering the player extra credits for killing their target. He can use this ability to switch who his target is. His next ability is the Combat Slide, which makes Lex slide forward in the direction he is facing, and can fire his pistols while doing this.
His ultimate is called The Law, which has Lex channel and fire a blast in a cone shape in front of him. While doing this slows the player down, it deals 600 damage to enemies and slows enemies caught in the blast down for one second. You can viewthe character’s reveal trailer here.
You can watch the video below. Lex will be available in the game with the OB46 Patch. Paladins: Champions of the Realm is currently in Open Beta on PC, and Closed Beta on PS4 and Xbox One.
