Paladins’ patch 17 hit recently bringing with it an all new Champion — Kinessa. A bounty hunter type, Kinessa uses mines and a transporter and has both sniper and headhunter modes. This results in a character that can move about quickly, while slowing the enemy down and doing significant damage.
The update also brings a variety of new quality of life changes, gameplay changes — including the removal of movement penalties for backpedaling — and side strafing when not mounted. There have also been several changes to the champions. More information on the update and everything it changed can be found on the Paladins forums.
