The time has finally come. The SMITE community has been waiting for this day for a long time and it was finally come. Medusa is finally making her way into SMITE in the newest patch. Medusa will be a hunter and her kit is incredibly burst heavy.

She can shoot out vipers in rapid succession which deals damage over time. She can shoot acid when will deal splash damage and she can dash forward and lacerate opponents which can also do damage over time. Then of course there is her Ultimate ability. She takes off her mask, reveals her horrifying face and then delivers a massive blasts which does damage and stuns enemies if they are looking at her. If this ability kills an opponent, they are turned into stone and remains there as a reminder to the rest of her opponents. The cool thing about the stone statues is that you can splash acid off them as well.
