Gekko Molly Lineups 

 

Gekko’s Molly is unique as opposed to other abilities of a similar kind in the game. It is not for instant damage, but more for area control. Anyone staying in the molly will instantly die rewarding you with the kill. However, it doesn’t deal damage to anyone staying in it until a certain period of time passes. What you get in return is the amount of space it covers, making it perfect for timed lineups and here you will find our best collected ones yet: 


A Default

What Does It Cover: Over on A site, this lineup will cover the default planting spot. It will not go through the wooden box so be aware of which side you are planting on. 

 

When To Use It: Best used as a post plant scenario as you play from Rubble or towards A lobby which helps you hold flank and fight for site.

 

What Makes It Special: Enemies retaking will struggle to tell your position and you can always use the rotating doors to fake making it a great lineup for your next ranked match.

Simply come next to Rubble and aim at that leaf as in the picture then throw your molly. 


A Default 2

What Does It Cover: This lineup will cover the opposing side on A site. 

 

When To Use It: Best used in a post plant scenario where you are aiming to get enemies off the spike without your teammates revealing their position on tree or what ever on site. 

 

What Makes It Special: This works a double up as you can use it to bait for your teammates which ensures you a round win almost every time.

B Default

Pro Tips

 

  • Keep in mind that Gekko’s Molly works quite differently. It has a cooldown before it explodes killing anyone standing inside its radius, but it will not deal any damage until that timer has run out.

  • Players can still dodge the molly by running out of it. This is because the molly’s damage comes fast but not in one instant making it possible for some to jump out of it at the right moment. That will still deal some damage though.

  • Since your Molly takes time to activate, this could allow enemies to defuse the spike up to the half depending on the timing and usage of it. Keep that in mind going in any match and using your lineups.

  • Always remember to ask for accompanying utility from your teammates as it can be a tremendous help for your own set of plays with Gekko. Especially in post-plant scenarios.

  • Gekko’s Molly is the only piece of utility that you will be able to pick back up after using. So be precise and ensure that you only use it when you can capitalize on it.

  • In case you use your Molly to clear an angle, do not look away from it just as you throw your ability. You will have to hold the corner for a bit more to ensure that nobody is there as if you catch enemies they will come out swinging and you want to be ready for that.

  • Aside from teammate utility, you can always use Dizzy (Flash Ability) in pair with your Molly lineup. While enemies might stick to the defuse even if the molly hits them, they will definitely get off when fully flashed as they will be scared of you peeking or pushing toward them. In addition, it reveals their position which tells you if they are defusing or not.
