Right now I think that skuttle's slow speed, small explosion radius, and enormous decloak radius make it almost useless. What do you think about skuttles?

Below are the skuttle and roach stats for comparison. Note the large explosion radius difference.

The fact that roaches only cloak when stationary makes them better mines and the skuttle jumpe makes them more offensive bombs, however a single defender or lotus is usually enough to spot and kill a skuttle mid flight.

Skuttle
Metal:550
Health:250
Viewrange:280
Speed:1.5
Damage:8000
Explosion radius:180
Decloak radius:180

Roach
Metal:160
Health:60
Viewrange:240
Speed:4
Damage:1200
Explosion radius:384
Decloak radius:75 (When stationary)

Skuttle is good if you need its niche. It has cloak and unparalelled burst. Roach has a completely different role, the only thing it has in common is being a bomb.

Skuttle is in jumpyfac which is already good and does not need more power.

Skuttle has a very non-interactive design (no counterplay, the moment it gets revealed it's 100% done its job and you can't do anything about it) so it's better for it to be bad.

What I find most annoying about skuttles is how the damage falls off in the explosion radius. If you dont hit really close then you won't kill anything.
In theory 1 skittle should kill a grizzly but really you need two, as the skuttle never does full damage. It falls off hard towards the edges.

What if you put the Skuttle on top of the Grizzly?

The same thing if you put a grizzly on top of a scuttle happens.

the same thing with anything when a skutle lands in your face.
