Mandy adds a second gadget to her arsenal namely Cookie Crumbs which can pierce through enemies as well as environments. The gadget effectively makes her a long shooter and a good one at that.
In addition to that, Mandy also gets a new Star Power known as Hard Candy which gives her a 20% shield While she is focused. The combination of the star power and the new gadget is insanely effective in knockout matches. The Shield while being only 20%, is effective in close encounters and saves a lot of matches by a thin margin.
