Riktor is a melee tank who specializes in crowd control. He's a powerful initiator who brings order to the battlefield by locking down targets and pacifying enemies. Approach fights with precision, you have a variety of control but that doesn't mean you should use it all at once. Wait for enemies to step out of line and pull them in with "Riplash". Once the enemy team engages use "Skewer" to shut them down while your team picks off your victim. Wait for a key target to begin using their ultimate and pacify them with "Shock Therapy".
