Viper is usually not a go-to Controller on Haven, however, this tech could make her an incredible pick to take opponents by surprise.
Ah, Controller mains, always talking about lineups - for retake, to clear angles, to defend spike, it's truly in their nature, taking pride in clutching a round with a play they practiced for hours.
This time, the broken tech we're presenting doesn't particularly involve lineups, but it does need a bit of trickery and good utility placing to make Viper, one of the least picked Controllers in Haven, a must-have.
Yes, Viper can be considered overall the strongest Controller in the game, but that doesn't mean Agents like Brimstone, Omen, or Astra don't have a place in the meta, particularly in Haven, with three sites to defend or attack, a more versatile approach is needed.
Back to the toxic, space-denying Agent, this particular trick involves her ultimate ability, Viper's Pit. The way it works is that, while you're attacking, you should head to B site and plant on the right side of the big box right in the middle of the site.
Once you've done this, head over to the small crates and climb on top of them, aim downwards while slightly facing the wall rather than the floor, and use your Viper's pit. This will allow you to rotate to A Short, where a small portion of the pit will be available for you to get into, thus allowing you to maintain the ultimate, tricking the opponents into thinking you're still on B site.
We recommend you buy an Ares or Odin and in case you missed where the spike was planted, have a teammate ping it for you, as soon as you hear them defuse, simply spam away! With the Viper's Pit debuff the wallbang kill should come relatively fast.
Take a look at the video down below to see how it works.
Now we do not recommend you go for this play every time you have ult unless you notice opponents are not adapting to it that is. If you're popping off you can definitely try and make this play two, or even three times during an attacking round, almost guaranteeing a round won.
Try it out and let us know how it goes!
