How has the meta changed since the launch of Operation Brutal Swarm?

The first thing that players will notice is Finka's position on the graphic: Finka has gone from a Win Delta of 2% and a presence of above 80%, to a Win Delta of 1% and a presence of 12%.

Another LMG user, Zofia, has also changed her presence on the graphic. While her Win Delta has slightly decreased, her presence has gone from 30% to 60%. She is now the most played attacker in the game.

On defense, not much has changed. Jäger, Alibi, Valkyrie, and Mute remain as the most played operators.  

What operators are going to have changes?

These are all the operators that have suffered changes:

Dokkaebi

Dokkaebi's Logic Bomb will now affect killed defenders. This means that defenders will have to interact with Dokkaebi's call even if they are dead. It can be very useful to prevent defenders from giving information to their teammates who are still alive.

Rook

Rook's Armor Plates will give operators the ability to withstand. 

Doc

Doc's Stim Pistol now heals 200 health points, which is a difference of 160 health points from the live game -- there, the Stim Pistol heals 40 health points. The Bailiff has also been added to his loadout, as Doc will be able to chose it as its secondary weapon.

Castle

Castle now has access to the M45 Meusoc. Although it's a good weapon choice, players will probably still go with the secondary shotgun to create rotations.

Kali

Kali's scope damage has been increased from 121 to 135 to counter Rook's buff.

Kaid and Goyo

The number of bullets in Kaid's TCSG 12 has been increased from 71 to 121 as an attempt to make the gun more appealing.

Other changes

Over-heal has been reduced from 40 health points to 20 health points, while the recoil attachments increase the recoil bonus to 20%.
