So the idea here is that 3 predators spawn in as Super Predators, the game changer would have to be the following
Each fire team member gets to spawn in unique independant locations of their own choosing from the available locations and finish the mission with the advantage of being ‘closer’ to objectives.
Super Predators are uniquely challenged and a real ‘back to basics’ loadout. ie. each are either
a. limited to melee -no plasma or gears
b. limited to plasma cannon. - no melee or gears
c. limited to being the only one with cloaking capabilities.- all gear available but NO Melee or Plasma Caster-- plus you’ll be the only pred having a bow!
To do all this, the SuperPred class would have to be highly dynamic, meaning you might only have to be able to customize your look of your pred and have primary and gears be chosen for you. i think it would be interesting as a class where you ONLY get to chose the class but not the weapons as this would be dynamically given in this game mode.
–that said, Energy usage would need to be extreme- that is one shot from plasma drains 50% each shot. Melee would have to drain stamina as well leaving a predator to be at light run mode rather than at sprinting. Cloaking would leave you drained as well from using sprinting or even leaping or tree advantage.
The feat with these predators would be limited and because this would be a new 4v3 gamemode rather than a public match up, would require one to have a superpredator loadout available- match making would require this.
Do you all think this balance would suffice?
There by I don’t think the purpose of the 3 preds would be to subdue them but to finish the objectives and get maybe 4x the rewards of V…and Xp. and Bragging rights.
