King Shark’s best weapon is the Heavy Weapon thanks to the Talents. While using the Heavy Weapon, we’ll spend time airborne and launching into Atlantean Drops to close the gap, use Suicide Strike to make the surrounding enemies Shield Harvestable, and use your Melee to apply Bleed and Shield Harvest everyone around us.
