The Finals Update 1.5.5: Unleashing Medium Class Mayhem

First up on the list of alterations is the thrilling adjustment to revives. Prepare for some lightning-fast resurrection action, as the post-revival invulnerability window has been slashed from a generous 1.5 seconds to a mere 0.75 seconds. That's right, folks, blink and you might miss it! This alteration applies not only to regular revives but also to the Medium's Defibrillator gadget. Talk about electrifying gameplay!

But that's not all, my friends. The update also brings some fine-tuning to various Medium weapons. The .357 Revolver now boasts improved accuracy, although its long-range damage has taken a hit. Fear not, though, for the Medium's CL-40 grenade launcher has received a well-deserved buff. However, this comes at the expense of the ever-popular FCAR assault rifle, which has been given a slight nerf. And let's not forget the much-needed nerf to the Guardian Turret, a thorn in the side of any Light foolish enough to approach an enemy cashpoint after a Medium has set up camp.

Minor buffs have also graced the Heavy's trusty MGL machine gun and the Light's sneaky Throwing Knives. But let's be honest, with the Heavy class still recovering from the previous patch's blow, it's going to take more than a sprinkle of buffs to lure us away from our beloved Heavy builds.

It seems that Embark, the masterminds behind The Finals, are determined to rein in the Medium class with this update. The Medium's ability to swiftly heal and revive allies, coupled with its proficiency in setting up crowd control at cashpoints using the infamous turret and an array of other tools, has solidified its reign in my experience of The Finals, especially during intense tournaments. While the Heavy class once held sway with its formidable health pool, it appears that the Mediums have snatched the crown, leaving the Lights in the dark.

It's intriguing to think that the developers behind The Finals never even planned for a shooter initially. But hey, when you have a team filled with Battlefield veterans, what else are you going to do? Embrace the chaos and dominate the battleground!

And there you have it! The Finals Update 1.5.5: Unleashing Medium Class Mayhem. Prepare your weapons, strategize your builds, and get ready to conquer the battlefield like never before.
