Christopher Columbus is a cool, calculating, and imposing hero. She's very slow, but has plenty of raw power to make up for it. She also has a little more freedom of positioning than most Gun heroes, as she has skills that work well at long and short range. Her passive reduces the attack by 2 of the enemy directly in front of her, which does support front row placement. In the front, Columbus has more freedom with her AoE skills, but also is more open to retaliation by the frontliners of the enemy team, which usually will have type advantage against Gun class heroes.

Columbus's base attack is Rifle Shot, which has greater range and damage at the cost of more restricted range. Anti-Material will likely be one of her most frequently used skills. It couples a high damage modifier with a respectably low delay, allowing Columbus to reliably drop huge damage on enemies within 3 range. Grenade Shot is sort of the odd-ball of Columbus' skillset. It's a Cannon skill that has both notably lower damage and higher delay than her other skills. It also has a nice AoE, but the limited range and Friendly Fire restrict its usage a bit. Egg Bullet shares much more in common with standard Cannon skills, combining high Wait time with huge damage over a sizable AoE. Thankfully, you can utilize this skill to freely obliterate chunks of the battlefield without any worry of damaging allies in the process.

ItemsEdit

Columbus actually has surprisingly low Delay on her skills, so fixing her pitiful base Speed stat will result in a dangerous combination of power and quickness. Gun items can also be very helpful in making the most of her naturally high damage output. Movement enhancing items are also very handy in helping her set up more big hits after her initial targets have fallen.

Good Item Synergy:

  1. Speed boosts
    • Columbus's best damage skills have low enough Delay to really capitalize on a more reliable Speed stat
  2. Gun items
    • Although all of the mid-level gun items suit Columbus nicely, Tathlum perfectly matches her needs
  3. Movement enhancers
    • Aetite allows for faster Move actions and Heidrun grants a brand new skill that works exactly the same as Tadataka's Shukuchi skill.
  4. Wait reduction
    • Lowering or removing the Wait time on Egg Bullet turns it into a monster of a skill, but I personally feel that there are other heroes that can make better use of these items
