Anonymous 10

uhh...gene should be S+++++++ tier in gem grab for sure, the ability to YEET a brawler from across the map is way to broken

And he should also be S/S+ tier for other modes too, bounty, siege, and duo

I think Pam belongs in the S cl*** and so does rosa but not Carl . He should be switched with Leon or Crow

Alex 8

I think Leon should replace Carl on the the S tier list
