I’ve decided to reboot the ol’ Lucio Lounge, a dedicated hangout for Frog Mains and admirers alike. This is meant to be a haven from the tension and anger of the rest of the forum, as a Lucio-themed hub rightfully should be.
So chill out, shoot the breeze, post videos and fan works, ask questions, and relax. Venting about your comp troubles and any inevitable changes to our hero are allowed too, but please check any extended bitterness and toxicity at the door. It’s supposed to be a party in here, and you’ve got a whole server-load of other topics to have arguments in!
Beyond a little reprieve, this topic will also serve as an information hub specifically dedicated to Lucio. Tips, reworks, cosmetics, lore updates, merchandise, and other related news will also be logged here in the OP for the convenience of old timers and newcomers alike. Don’t be afraid to post news and tips too. Everyone’s welcome to participate! With that out of the way:
The Lucio-Ohs cereal is available in wide distribution in The United States. Boxes are confirmed to be on Wal-Mart and Target shelves, although you can still order them online from Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon, and Jet.
188.8.131.52 (August 9, 2018):
- Aura radius increase from 10 to 12 meters
- Temporary shields granted increased from 500 to 750
Lunar New Year: Year of the Pig
Victory Pose: Drumming
Highlight Intro: Drumming
- Lucio has a combo! A few headshots from one clip, Boop, and melee can finish off low-health opponents and delete Tracer!
- Lucio glides! He’s the only character that cannot stop on a dime, so learn an AD strafing combo to become harder to hit!
- Don’t be afraid of Sombra! If you get Hacked, run up to duel her! Remember your strafing to gain an advantage, and you should scare her off!
- Don’t stay on walls! Double jump off of surfaces for more mobility and bursts of speed!
- Lucio can climb on nearly anything! Practice some routes (rollouts) from spawn to objectives to learn how to get around!
Amp It Up
- Amp’s cooldown is long! Use it wisely, particularly when multiple allies are at low health and you want to speed the team away from burst damage!
- Amp gives ult charge! A properly timed one can give around 10%, so use it on command when you want an ult during a team fight!
- Boops are tricky! Hold your crosshair straight and make sure your target is moving away from you to ensure they fly into the pit!
- It does damage too! Use it as a finisher on low-health opponents!
- Shields aren’t immediate! To better ensure your Beat lands, try using it under cover and rushing out to deliver them to your team mates!
- Sombra erases shields! Make sure you ult after she does or when Hack’s on cooldown, or if she’s holding out, make sure you’re out of her radius when EMP goes off!
Patch 184.108.40.206 (May 22, 2018)
- Lucio reveals through conversation with Mercy that his father’s lifelong work was the Core technology powering his Sonic Amplifier. He claims it came to be owned and patented by Vishkar through exploitative means; Symmetra disputes that his father was taken advantage of, instead implying he was a willing employee.
On the battlefield, Lúcio’s cutting-edge Sonic Amplifier buffets enemies with projectiles and knocks foes back with blasts of sound. His songs can both heal his team or boost their movement speed, and he can switch between tracks on the fly.
Real Name: Lúcio Correia dos Santos, Age: 26
Occupation: DJ, Freedom Fighter
Base of Operations: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Lúcio is an international celebrity who inspires social change through his music and actions.
Lúcio Correia dos Santos grew up in Rio de Janeiro, in a poor and crowded favela that was hit hard by the financial upheaval following the Omnic Crisis. As Brazil began the long process of recovery, he wanted to find a way to lift the spirits of those around him. He found his answer in music and its power to bring people together and even help them forget their troubles, if only for a short time. He performed on street corners, in block parties, and as he got older, at a string of legendary underground shows.
But Lúcio’s close-knit community was thrown into chaos when the multinational Vishkar Corporation secured a contract to redevelop large tracts of the city. Lúcio and his neighbors had been told that the development would improve their lives. However, that promise never became a reality. Vishkar imposed controls on the residents in the name of building a more orderly society: enforcing curfews, cracking down on what the company perceived as lawless behavior, and exploiting the populace as a cheap labor force.
Lúcio wouldn’t stand for it. He stole Vishkar sonic technology that had been used to suppress the people, and he converted it into a tool to rally them to action. In a popular uprising, they drove Vishkar out of their neighborhoods. Lúcio’s leadership made him a star overnight and a symbol for positive social change. His music skyrocketed in popularity. Whereas he had once performed locally, he was now filling arenas across the world.
With his newfound fame, Lúcio realizes that he has an opportunity to make a difference and change the world for the better.
