Orion Powerup

So I am curious as to how one can effectively reach this platform without landing themselves in the hole many suicides. It in it’s position it seems largely ignored because of this. To my understanding it is a double damage buff and I understand how that can influence the course of a match. So in essence I have two questions.

  1. In its current state, how do I reach the double damage platform without killing myself?
  2. Should access to that platform be changed so that the power up that’s there can actually be used in matches. If it is so hard to get to that nobody reaches it, then why have it there?
