Verge Tips and Tricks
Thanks to his telekinesis, Verge can control the field like no other. He cannot only trick enemies into attacking their own but also whip them out of cover to let your allies freely deal damage. However, one important thing to keep in mind is that Verge is on the squishier side of the agents. Therefore, if somebody gets a jump on him, he will most likely die.
Keeping this in mind, it is a good idea to have him protected with some sort of a tank – Cherub immediately comes to mind with his kinetic shield.
