All enemies within its blast radius will become concussed leading to slow movement and blurred vision. Any Mercs unlucky to be looking right at it when it goes off will also be temporarily blinded.
Thunder tells anyone who’ll listen (and you really have no choice, THE DUDE’S LOUD) that he’s ex-Spetsnaz. He’s kind of vague on precisely which unit, or where he served, but he’s so useful under fire that nobody gets too worked up. His English really is very good, if heavily accented. In fact, no one has ever actually heard him speak or seen him read Russian, including Sparks, who definitely does. Her theory? A lot of passports suddenly became available in the chaos that followed the Dirty Bomb attacks, providing some with an irresistible chance for a clean slate… So, he’s Thunder and he’s Russian. Got it? Good.
Forceful frontline point man with lots of health and lots of firepower. While not the most accurate, Thunder’s LMG has a fearsome rate of fire perfect for suppressing enemies, while his Concussion Grenades leave them easy targets for him and his teammates. A heavyweight presence in attack or defense, he’s as adept at taking out campers as he is forcing entry into rooms and past chokepoints.
