How do you think Emmett will be played?

Honestly I am asking this because when I look at his moves I can see him being played by camping on a side of a map behind his flak turret, firing rockets, rift extracter out collecting ap, and having his shotgun supply bunker next to him as well so he can change weapons fast when people come after him assuming he can have them all out at the same time (I can't see him not being able to) I think this could prove pretty effective on maps like metropolis with the platform raised. How do you guys think people will play him?

Just to add not saying I think he will be a cheap character, but can see a stragety like this being pretty effective on some stages.

Let's put it this way, if a character has a trap move, or something similar to a trap, I will use the hell out of it, the turret is a good candidate for this and since it actually causes flinching I can see it helping Emmit with combos, also it'd be good for controlling space which can make landing supers easier for him.

I've said on another thread before but I can very much see Emmit dominating in 2v2 with a multitude of different partners, he could set up a turret and keep the other team at bay while Parappa or Toro can get some AP out of their AP generating moves, Emmit can set up a turret and he and maybe a Radec, Ratchet, or Jak partner can just shower the other team with projectiles, and ya know god help you if you fight a team of 2 Emmits. though of course this would depend on the stages, most of these strategies would work great in the Resistance stage or Metropolis but in stages like the LocoRoco stage you'll have to come up with something else which shouldn't hurt Emmit too much.

This just makes him sound like an incredibly cheap character, worse than any of the roster thus far.

I wouldn't say he'd be cheap just probably the best long ranged fighter in the game plus I'm sure the turret can be destroyed.

Also yeah I agree I see him being great in 2v2 just picture him with like Ratchet with an electric wall set up with a turret parked right next to it as he fires rockets and Ratchet just uses his plasma striker or constructo pistol.

Oh yeah and again since the turret shots do cause flinching, this would be great to extend combos for some of the close range characters.
