Archetypeicon scrapper.png

The Scrapper is a fierce melee combatant. In hand to hand combat, no other hero can compare. But the Scrapper is not as resilient as the Tanker, and might find himself in a little trouble if he heedlessly wades into combat. The Scrapper's aptitude for melee is countered by a lack of ranged attacks. Scrappers possess Critical Strike capability. Their melee attacks have a chance to sometimes do double damage.

Scrappers are a good archetype for the solo player, but may have trouble finding their place in a supergroup, as they have no set role in group play. However their melee attacks and good defence make them a good attack partner for the Tanker, or useful for rescuing Controllers or Defenders who get dragged too deep into heavy action.
