Developer Comments: We’re making several small tweaks to Probius across the board, largely to make him a little more powerful and, more importantly, more engaging to play. Many of his abilities have had small tweaks to them to make them more usable, and we’re buffing the damage and duration of his Photon Cannons to make them more threatening.
