Dredge is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Admiral Dredge ruled the eight oceans as the Realm’s most feared pirate, until one final treasure led to his doom. Dredge stole the Warder's Relic from the Paladins, but could not tame the dragons’ might. His ship was destroyed, his crew scattered, and Dredge sank to certain death in the the ocean’s depths. The Abyss intervened and bore Dredge back into the Realm of the living. Now the undead admiral sails the seas again. And none will take his treasure.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Dredge is a damage champion, capable of outputting massive area damage from long range and zoning control on the map. With his Cursed Howitzer, Dredge fires grenades that arch before falling. He can easily apply heavy pressure on the point or in flanking lanes using both his left click and right click. Enemies caught within proximity of his grenades will take heavy damage based on their distance from the explosives. Upon reloading his gun, it will shoot out a lobbing projectile that deals huge damage if it manages to direct hit an enemy. His harpoon can be used to slow enemies who get too close or to finish off fleeing enemies who manage to get out of range of his main attack. Dredge may also summon two individual shortcuts, which he can use to teleport between the portals, allowing him to escape deadly threats or simply reposition himself. His ultimate, Kraken, summons the destructive powers of the Abyssal Kraken, creating a large sphere wherever he points, which deals massive damage to any enemy stuck within its area after a brief delay. Dredge can become very vulnerable in close range against flanks if he misses his harpoon or is found without a nearby shortcut to escape through.
