On their own, Voidwalkers possess one the most powerful Void subclasses in terms of offensive power. Unlike Defender and Nightstalker, where Void abilities are channeled more towards team based support, Voidwalkers are meant for solo play styles, dishing out massive damage on large groups of enemies in quick succession.
Similar to the Striker, a Voidwalker's super, the Nova Bomb, is limited to a single use before recharging. Therefore it is critical for a Voidwalker to make precise use of their ultimate ability. Luckily, an enemy rarely has a chance to dodge your super before being obliterated by the raw explosive void light.
