2023.06.07 01:41 Meatpaste1729 Better Sniper Balance: In response to the Hanzo/Widow One-shot update and post that is currently front page

Here's the post
I think the changes are a bit goofy and won't fix the issue, (see top comments on linked post) and I want to ask about my own ideas and if/why they'd work or not instead. Scroll to the bottom for those~
Before I proper start, I'm biased and hopefully that's okay. I was briefly a 3500 tank main and hopefully that's enough credential to be seen as having a decent sense of the game over the years
Snipers in fps games can always be some level of contentious, because their gameplay often revolves around headshots, and a cycle of either broken or unplayable gameplay balancing. This is not an easy problem to solve, I'm not an expert, I just want to throw my spaghetti into the wind about it
I've always found Widow to be the least 'fun' champion, mostly through what she asks of other players on her team implicitly: -Low damage output means players have to either pick up dps slack or wait for a headshot. -Extreme backline position means I had to do the most work to peel for one, and had the most difficulty 'feeling out' if I was providing good frontline pressure to open up better shots -One shots are less fun than combined damage kills for almost everyone involved except the shooter; The healers don't get to heal, the tanks don't get to shield, and even the other dps on the team doesn't get to assist. (This is a little bit hyperbole, there is pressure and positioning to think of, snipers just do it the least visibly and thus most frustratingly)
Hanzo I don't personally mind as much because his burst is higher (i can play around a hanzo air jumping in with his 5 quick shots easier than a widow's aggressive grapple) and he's often more midrange, i.e. interactable, but he can certainly spam at head height and farm tilt. He has very similar problems to Widow, I just like his playstyle more
So what are the changes going to do?
Widow is getting her long range nerfed, bringing her more midrange if she wants headshots. Good! We can interact with her! And also, bad! Horrible! Her dps is already so low that my shields will always break before my fellow opponent tank's, now it's even worse!
Hanzo's Sonic arrow is now 'more visible' to enemies, good, i like this one, it's been needed for a long time.
Hanzo can't one-shot 250hp targets thanks to a slight dps nerf. Good? Who cares? Isn't the problem squishes dying from casually tossed cross map log spam?
I don't think these changes will fully fix the issue, and I do think they risk pushing the sniper class from op to bottom tier for most Elo tiers, so here are my own custom oc do not steal but please do if they're any good, suggestions:
Widow needs a DoT poison shot on her primary sniper. It's wild she only has poison on her mine and terribly unthematic. But, it can't be all DoT because that's Anna, and her iconic sniper shot sound wouldn't match viscerally with the damage type or the hero.
So, take a portion of the total damage of the shot, and convert it to a poison DoT that ticks over the next few seconds. And tie that ratio to the distance the shot was taken at! Or even the speed at which the dot ticks, maybe with a small window of grace for a healer
Examples: Fully charged widow headshot at -200m: 300 damage, 50 instant and 250 over 3 seconds after a delay of 0.5 seconds -100m: 300 damage, 150 instant and 150 over 2 seconds after a delay of 0.5 -50m: 300 damage, 190 instant and 110 over 1 second after a delay of 0.5 -10m: 300 damage, 240 instant and 60 over 0.5 seconds after 0.5 seconds
The main reasons to like this is how modular balancing widow becomes, because you may not like these numbers but each can be changed! The damage of the shot, duh The instant/dot damage ratio at any specific range The time it takes for the dot to deal its full damage The grace period before the 'poison' sets in that allows a healer to save the day
Unironically Widows damage could be buffed under these conditions. Her damage at long range could be increased if needed, with the stipulation that it's a long range DoT that will tick over a longer time. I'm not saying i want that, just that this damage system allows for it without making it an instant one shot, which is pretty cool I think!
Okay so hanzo gets the same treatment, but different flavor and a little simpler. He always talks about marking people by dragon, so why not actually have that as a core mechanic:
-First shot marks, deals ~70-90% of it's total damage, adds a mark -Second shot procs the mark, deals ~70-90% of it's total damage plus the 10-30% of the first shot, plus a new mark -Third shot deals ~70-90% of it's total damage, plus the first shot mark damage, plus MAYBE the second shot mark damage as well! This accounts for shots having different amounts of charge and damage, so hopefully it won't promote a playstyle of having to shoot one limp arrow to mark and one big boi to nuke.
Simple as, don't get hit two or more times How do I know I'm marked? Maybe Hanzo says something, maybe there's a UI indicator How long does the mark last? Maybe its only who you hit last, and it's permanent until you hit someone else, maybe it lasts 3-10 seconds and you can apply it to whoever Can any of his other moves mark? Storm for sure but numbers would need to be shifted so the average damage is about the same. Maybe sonic arrow, if the mark duration was shorter? Definitely ultimate damage should mark! Tagging people with follow up shots after the twin dragons tickle them could be fun.
Point is, all the suffering is on the first shot, so just shuffle that pain over a bit, suddenly its a mechanic and you can play around it or be rewarded for chaining arrows together!
Thanks for reading however much of it you did~
Edit: Sorry I'm a clown at formatting
TLDR: Why don't we take Hanzo and Widow, and push their damage somewhere else?

2023.06.06 19:10 cibrage The Pride event was not released in several countries, including Europe

Haven't seen a single post here discussing that Blizzard made the specific decision to region lock their first pride event, stating that: "“We have tech in place to limit this content from going out to countries that have laws that aren’t tolerant of LGBT content, /.../ This helps us protect those players."
Per user accounts I can find by skimming forums and Twitter - Romania, Poland, Hungary, Turkey(?), Lithuania have the new cosmetics hidden from all users. Please add to the list if it's incomplete.
Some discussion on this topic:
Being from one of the affected countries, it's completely disheartening to be excluded from an event promoting inclusivity because Blizzard is afraid of some imaginary backlash, that would occur if they were allowed to add flags into their videogame. There are no laws prohibiting having any sort of flags or characters for other games in the same countries. Apex, Paladins have had the same range of flags available for longer with no region locking that I know of. It's just a pathetic look.

2023.06.05 23:55 Noobseriously How about a boomer shooter in GFL universe?

The other day, there was a discussion post about hypothetical GFL FPS(https://www.reddit.com/girlsfrontline/comments/140o37i/if_a_girls_frontline_firstperson_shooter_game_was/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3). The OP asked people what type (subgenre) of FPS would they prefer, if a GFL themed shooter were to actually be developed. There were a lot of comments (120 as of writing), which indicates the persisting interest in “GFL in FPS” concept among the fanbase, and it seemed that some of the popular answers were following.
-CoD style: cinematic and fast-paced single-player campaign, ideally with a PVP mode on top. Zombie mode with ELID would be also welcome.
-Battlefield style: larger in scale than CoD and class-based, which does sound like a better fit for GFL
-Arma style: more of a milsim, but it would probably be a better fit when it comes to a fight against the Russian military depicted in some events
-Ready or Not / SWAT4 style: slow-paced, squad-based tactical shooter. Police-themed dolls like VSK and MCX would shine in something like this, no doubt
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R. style : It’s about post-apocalypse Russia with some strange entities. That’s it, no more explanation needed.
-Hero shooter: PvE, or maybe PvP, basically something like Rainbowsix siege, Overwatch or Overwatch 2

These all sounds super awesome. There were many more games suggested like Halo or Escape from Tarkov, which also would be wonderful. However, and I hate to be that guy, but…it won’t happen. Aside from the feasibility of GFL as FPS as a concept itself, almost all of the games listed above are AAA games. Even if MICA, or some hypothetical doujin circle decided to actually make a game, it is really unrealistic to expect a game of this scale. Yes I know there is already a fantastic GFL MOD for CoD, and sure, the 3D model MICA has been showing us from GFL2 look great and are animated smoothly. But actually developing a whole FPS game entails modeling not just the characters, but the levels themselves. Not to mention then they have to implement a good AI for enemies and friendly NPCs. Also, a lot of voicelines would have to be recorded, and even some cutscenes would have to be produced. These are all really hard, and crucially very resource-intensive things to do. Heck, fricking Blizzard just failed to develop Overwatch 2. MICA so far has only developed strategy games for phones. They absolutely won’t be able to develop a big FPS game.

But I’m not writing this to be a party-pooper; I actually have a proposal. What about, a little boomer-shooter?

Boomer-shooters, for those who are not familiar with the term, are FPS games that are either made in 90s, or made recently with deliberate design decisions to mimic the look and feel of 90’s shooters. Notable examples include Doom(1993), Duke Nukem 3D, Dusk, Iron Fury, among many others. Often singly-player focused, these games usually feature,
-2.5D graphics (2D sprites placed in 3D-ish levels)
-Arsenal system (you can carry more than 2 weapons, and swapping between them is key to survival)
-No or minimal cutscenes, and paper thin plot (story is only there to provide reasons for player to start shooting)
-Run & Gun: shooting is based on movement and precision rather than tactics or carefulness

Honestly, if you only have played things like CoD, just go play one of the games I used as examples above and you will instantly understand the difference between subgenres.

Now on a first glance, boomer-shooters look unsuitable for GFL universe. I mean GFL is story-driven, squad-based and tactical (strategical). Boomer-shooters have super simple story, almost always no friendly NPCs, and not even a semblance of strategy. And honestly, I admit that boomer-shooters are not ideal fit for GFL. However, they have one distinct advantage: namely, they are easiER to develop.

The biggest thing is the graphics. As I mentioned, these games have low resolution 2.5D graphics, either because of the technical boundaries at the time, or an intentional attempt to mimic those old games. Now, I would never argue it is easy to create 2D arts for these games. It takes skills, obviously. However, it is certainly less resource intensive. You can use your old laptop and MS paint to edit/create 2D sprites, whereas high quality 3D models take a monster PC. In fact, most of recent boomer-shooters are developed by indie studios, and even before that, lots of amateurs were making visual conversion MODs for Doom, Duke Nukem 3D and other games. It takes skills, but it doesn’t take lots of money. Then there’s the AI: obviously, brainlet enemy AI ruins even the simpler gameplay of boomer-shooters. However, you can certainly get away with simpler AI in these games. The fun in boomer-shooters mainly come from the satisfaction of each shot you fire, smooth movement, and the carnage in general, more than out-smarting the enemy AI. Also, how about the voice lines. Characters in boomer-shooters often speak only with one-liners. Duke Nukem is infamous for this: upon killing monsters, he says things like, “let God sort them out” “I’m gonna go medieval on your asses” “Your ass, your face, what’s the difference.” Well, when it comes to simple one-liners like these, the preexisting skill activation lines from GFL base game can serve perfectly, so there is a minimal need of additional recording.

As for the story or premise, sure boomer-shooters are not really equipped to tell a deep and serious story GFL is known for, but I think you can still make it work. How about something like, “you are SOPPO. One of the G&K bases has been taken over by Sangvis units, and you have been sent alone to clean them out. Rip and Tear!” Then the game throws a dozen or so levels at you filled with Sangvis units, red/yellow/blue key to progress deeper into the base, a simple boss fight at the end, and maybe Banana at the corner of your screen yelling commands at you and generally bantering with you throughout the game, and maybe a glory kill system akin to that of Doom 2016? Right there, there is a game, no deep story needed.

Again, my argument here is not that boomer-shooter would be best fit for GFL. Rather, I’m saying it would be much more viable than anything of larger scale, while being pretty fun and enjoyable in its own right. Warhammer franchise recently had a massive success with its own boomer-shooter: Boltgun. Why can’t GFL?

If you are still skeptical, look up a game called “The Citadel.” It’s an indie FPS with anime aesthetic somewhat retro-ish gameplay, but also with tactical elements like ADS, leaning and mini-map that shows enemy placement behind walls. Try to ignore the ludicrous gore and focus on the fact that anime aesthetic, boomer-shooter element and tactical aspects are working together perfectly on that game. What if that very game, but with GFL theme (minus the gore)?

So I would like to invite everyone, including MICA themselves, to consider this route. Maybe some of you are familiar with Doom modding. Why not create a GFL wad for a start? How about Duke Nukem 3D MOD? If you are particularly skilled, or if you are MICA, why not develop your own boomer shooter?

I myself once tried to make a Wolfenstein 3D MOD that replace enemy Nazis with German T-dolls. I haven’t…given up, or anything, but it turned out I’m super bad at drawing pixel art (I mean I haven’t drawn ANY art in my life, how surprising), so you know, I’m stagnating.

So um…sorry for the absurd length of this post. What do you guys think?

2023.06.05 22:41 KyleKKent Out of Cruel Space, Part 704

Capes and Conundrums
A blast of lightning slams into the barrier between them and the villain starts laughing. “Yes Hades yes! Flee before the power of Zeus! Hah hahaha!!!”
“Love his sense of style, hate the aggression.” One of the tourists who had gotten into the tests’ first run notes. She got all the way to the end and had loved every second of it. It turns out that a Dzedin Huntsmistress revisiting one of her old favourites was a shoe in for the tests.
“I know right? Have you seen the muscles on him?” One of the local level four girls says with a bit of a giggle as she peaks out of cover. She and the huntress are serving as distraction as a third girl is going around to unplug the delusional villain.
“I have got to get my husband one of those. What’s it called? A toga?” The Huntress notes before she dashes from one bit of cover to another to draw more attention.
“Flee! Flee! Ahaha!” Maxie Zeus calls out before there’s a sudden fizzle to his lightning thrower. “What?! What trechery is this!? Have the cyclopses been attacked!?”
There’s a shout of pain and shock as the lightning thrower is abruptly plugged back in and Maxie gets a face full of lightning. The actor playing the part gives an extra little turn so he falls on his side and not his face when he collapses.
“Alright! Tie him up... with cuffs not with silk, and let’s see if we can get information out of him when he ‘wakes’.” The Huntress says as she stands up and takes command of the situation.
“On it!” Her youngest daughter says and she quickly has ‘Maxie Zeus’ strung up and hanging upside down from the ceiling.
“Off the goods.” The ‘unconscious criminal’ mutters and the Huntsmistress’ daughter snatches back her hand.
“A little more respectful Migalla. He’s cute, but he’s on the clock dearie.” The Huntmisstress chides.
“Also remember that we’re being recorded for a highlights of the day to be played in public. Don’t want to be caught touching a man inappropriately.” The Local Girl reminds her and the young Dzedin winces a bit.
“Calm down, not mad. Back in character in three... two... one...” The Undaunted that’s been tied up says before seemingly jerking awake. “What!? What!? Hades how dare...”
The criminal’s rant is cut of when a black chitinous hand grabs the top of his head.
“Zeus, we don’t have time for this. What have you done with Firefly?” She demands and ‘Maxie’ scowls at her.
“Prometheus?! The traitorous titan! The wretched thief! He thought to escape his punishment! But he is back where he belongs! With his guts soon to be devoured by the eagle as he deserves!” Maxie Zeus declares and gets a punch to the gut by Migalla.
“You’re a speedbag Zeus, where did you tie him down?”
“Where he deserves! Where he escaped from! Mount Caucasus!” Zeus declares and there’s a quick check as The Huntmisstress checks the ‘map’ of the city. It’s modified and shows different names for places. For instance, the divide between the large ash field that indicates it as a pair of ash seas.
“Caucasus is between two seas. Which means he’s in this part of the city. Likely on a roof. We need to go before whatever twisted thing he’s constructed eats firefly alive.” She states and after calling in Zeus as contained they all rush off and the feed cuts.
“Well that was fun.” ‘Maxie’ notes as he easily slips out of the bonds and rubs his stomach. “She’s got a good cross for a little thing. I didn’t even feel any Axiom in that.”
“Uh... are we too late?” Someone asks and he turns to see another tourist.
“Yes and no, give me a minute to reset the scene please. The last people here just left. You might have even seen them on their way out.”
“Oh uhm...”
“Just a minute or two please.” ‘Maxie’ says as he quickly starts rushing around.
“Mom look!” Migalla says as they land on a roof. Three roofs down is a plume of fire reaching the sky as someone screams in fury.
“Well, we found Firefly.” Her mother notes and they quickly move. The madman is tied to an alter with chains and has just enough movement to try and ward off a mechanical eagle that’s thoroughly unbothered by the fire but still slowly advancing.
“Is it wrong that this is kinda hot?” Migalla says and her mother slowly turns to her? “What?”
“That pun was awful.” She says. “Now come on, we don’t want to lose pace with the locals do we?”
First things first. The fire needs to be stopped shortly followed by the bird. Preferably both at once. There’s a bit of putting their heads together and a plan is hashed out. Local girl, her name is Echosong, is going to go after the robotic bird, Migalla takes care of the flamethrower and Mother is going to help whoever needs it but would be very happy to see them both do well alone.
An invisible trio of night black hands grab the flame thrower and pull it out of firefly’s grip even as something slams into the mechanical eagle. Both dangerous machines are surprisingly delicate and fall apart after just a few moments of attention and a larger, much more dangerous black figure appears over Firefly, applauding with all four hands.
“Oh very well done children! This is turning out to be such good fun.” The Huntsmistress says happily. “Now, anything you’d like to tell us little man? For a level four challenge this seems a little lacking...”
“Boss Battle!” Firefly exclaims before the alter he’s on suddenly collapses and he’s launched into the air on his jetpack. Little tubes pop out of his bracers and reveal that he has two more flamethrowers on him. “Ahahahaha!”
“Love it!” The Huntsmistress exclaims as she vanishes and the two younger participants dive for cover from the first sweep of the flames. “I’ll be waiting in the wings in case you girls need help! Do momma proud!”
“We don’t even know her!”
“Migalla, play nice with your new friend.” The Huntsmistress chastises her daughter.
“Sorry.” Echosong says.
“Wait why are you apologizing?” Migalla asks.
“HELLO!? Forget someone?!” Firefly interrupts as he launches fireballs at their hiding places. Bot hof them abandon the heat filled shelters they stuck behind. “Oh no! No place to hide!”
With that there’s a layer of burning napalm over every obvious hiding place as the pyromaniacle madman laughs. “That’s right Bat! Tonight you BURN!”
“Think you can hide yourself from the glory that is the god of gods!? Think again!” A new Maxie Zeus cosplayer suddenly announces and a spear wreathed in enough electricity to make it look like a lightning bolt streaks down to where The Huntsmistress is standing invisibly. The electrical attack is caught in one hand, passed to another, a third points right at him even as she fades into view and she blows a kiss with her fourth even as she lets fly with the lightning spear.
It crashes into the crane the delusional madman is standing on and it rocks, but the man merely reaches into his modified golf bag and pulls out another. “I fear not the strength of the skies! For it is mine!”
“Oh... oh this is getting good. You girls play nice with the lightbug. I’ve got a bug zapper to face.” The Huntsmistress says before she hops to the side to avoid another lightning spear and then leaps towards him. His retaliatory attack is dodged when she manifests an Axiom shield in midair and bounces off it to adjust her momentum.
“So how’s it going out there?” Robin asks as he looks over an Overwatch’s shoulder. He was tending to the only level four series of missions and gets a bit of an elbow to the side for getting too close.
“Pretty good so far. The equipment is just effective enough to feel dangerous, but is ninety percent Axiom illusion. A low power taser has more energy then those lightning spears our Zeus player is tossing around and there’s maybe enough heat to light a cigarette from our Firefly boy.” Overwatch says.
“So what’s the story?”
“No real story, just a lot of crazy as a pair of elemental idiots are up to shenanigans. Not everything is a big mystery, sometimes it’s just a brawl. When you get the crocodile in it’s lair, it’s just a mosh pit at that point.” Overwatch states as Firefly starts shooting fireballs rapid fire style and failing to hit anything but the roof, sometimes he even misses the roof.
Meanwhile Maxie Zeus is trying to ward off the Huntsmistress by swinging his lighting spear at her like a baseball bat. “Well it’s a flashy show, of that I cannot deny. But do you think they’ve caught onto the hints?”
“They need to stop playing around with the actors and pin them so they can start going through their pockets for more than just a feel.” Overwatch remarks.
“I think they may be too polite for that. Big momma there already scolded her daughter for getting handsy, so they might not actually go through the pockets.” Robin notes.
“A good point. Now shut up for a second.” Overwatch says before leaning forward and activated the microphone. “Gents, I need you to draw attention to the clues in your pockets for the next part of the plan. I think they may be too polite to go through them.”
“Crash and Burn!” Firefly calls out to signify he got the message.
“All shall bow before the God of Gods!” Maxie sends out his confirmation code.
“Nice.” Robin notes before checking his pocket as his communicator goes off. “Hmm... okay.”
“I see they approved my suggestion.”
“Yes. Yes they did.” Robin notes. “Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get into my candycorn best.”
Overwatch just snorts in amusement at that description of a Deathstroke outfit.
“Hah! Hah ha!” Maxie Zeus says fumbling at something in his pocket. “Nearly lost that. Ares is no fool, however his plan eludes me.”
“Oh?” The Huntsmistress asks in an interested tone before she rushes forward and he takes a swing only for it to go right through an illusion and he’s grabbed by the shoulders and there’s a fist in the small of his back stopping him from struggling as another goes through his pocket.
“Oh naughty naughty little goddy. You’ve been scheming!”
“Little Goddy? No! You can’t be! The Primordial Nyx! Mistress of the Night!”
“Nyx? Oh I like that! You’re adorable, and overacting adorably as well. I can see how hard it is for you not to laugh.” She says pocketing the clue before putting a hand over his face. “Laugh away, I won’t let my daughter and her new friend hear it. You can break character.
It takes him about ten seconds to get it all out before nodding appreciatively even as his hands are expertly ‘bound’ to confirm the win. “Good job. How are you liking this so far?”
“Oh this is fun, adorable and I am GOING to be buying a copy of the files. I can see the cameras and I want a cut for the family to laugh over.” She says.
“Twenty credits. Give me a moment to dig out the communicator and I’ll give you the number.” ‘Maxie’ says as he quickly gets out of the binders and pulls out his device and then taps it against hers.
“Thank you kindly.” She says before she turns her head to wash as Echosong tackles into Firefly from above and Migalla hefts his arms apart with her upper arms and begins going through his pocket with her lower ones even as her tail anchors her to the roof. “Hey! That’s wonderful! It can be so hard to get the children used to using all their limbs. A tragic side effect to growing up surrounded by so many races with less limbs. You learn so much by playing with others and too many girls just consider all the limbs on one side to equate just one arm and one leg. Nevermind the mighty tail we have.”
“To be fair you’re also down eyes.”
“The whole top of the head does that job little godling.” She informs him and he shrugs.
“Maybe it does, maybe it doesn’t. Either way, onto the next part.”
“Yes, it is fun to know this was a distraction.”
“What do you think is next?” ‘Maxie’ asks even as the girls down below confirm the win by cuffing Firefly.
“Oh I’ll keep that to myself.” She says.
“I know what it is, I’m confirming if you know or not.”
“Then what is it?”
“I’m not going to tell that!”
“Well... you have fun with that.” She says patting him on the top of the head and leaping away to join her daughter and the local friend she had made. Meanwhile the ‘Maxie’ cosplayer is left wondering in just what way he’s being spoken down to.
He gives up and just exhales for a bit before snickering a bit. He’d been told that Dzedin women had an interesting sense of humour. But it was another thing entirely to run into it.
After the three leave for the next part of their little journy he uses an Axiom marking on his sheathe to summon back all the lightning spears to it. It was a big flashy toy, but in the end licking a AA battery might cause more of a shock.
He has ten minutes before the next group shows up, two Feli, a local Sonir and an Apuk that was outright treating Firefly’s flamethrower like a water gun. He draws back his first spear, and lets out a cry.
“The Mighty Zeus cannot be defeated!”

2023.06.05 22:16 Raetian Proficiency Class Pack - Let's Talk About Builds #5: the Sapper

We return today to the PCP for the next entry in our series of build discussions: this time, we’re talking about the Sapper! I plan to move through the classes alphabetically, but can rearrange things on request, so let me know if there's a class you want to see discussed next - otherwise we will finally be looking at the Tech Specialist in the next post.
At Squaddie rank, all Sappers receive the following perks:
Explosive Ordnance (PROFICIENCY) - Soldier gains a Grenade Pocket, allowing the Sapper to equip an additional grenade (or rocket, if using Iridar’s Rocket Launchers mod). Soldier’s rockets and grenades deal an additional +3 environmental damage. At Proficiency level 2, the Grenade Pocket grants +1 bonus charge to a grenade equipped in it (notably excluding rockets); the soldier’s grenades and rockets gain +25% chance to crit, dealing +1 damage; and maximum scatter with rocket launchers is significantly reduced. At level 3, Soldier gains an additional +1 bonus charge to the Grenade Pocket for a new total of +2; maximum rocket scatter is again reduced; and standard grenades and rockets deal an additional +5 environmental damage, +1 base damage, and +1 crit damage.
Launch Grenade - Soldier uses a grenade launcher to fire grenades, rather than throwing them, for greater range and explosion radius. Non-offensive grenades like smokes also benefit from being launched.
Defensive Mine - As a free action, soldier may deploy a small proximity mine within a 2-tile radius of their position; this deployment does not break concealment. Defensive Mines deal 4-5 damage and have a 1-tile triggeexplosion radius (meaning a 3x3 square); they count as explosives for the bonuses granted via Explosive Ordnance but naturally do not receive benefits from equipped grenade launchers.
Rank Perk 1 Perk 2 Perk 3
CPL Blast Padding: Soldier gains +1 armor and an innate reduction to incoming explosive damage taken of 66%. Skirmisher: Soldier gains +1 mobility and, at the end of each turn, gains +2.5% chance per tile moved that turn (to a maximum of 25%) to convert any standard Hits taken into Grazes instead. Entrenched: When this soldier is attacked through full cover, incoming damage is reduced by -2 HP flat, and the attack cannot crit.
SGT Demolition: Soldier may fire their primary weapon at a target’s cover, significantly damaging or destroying it but dealing no damage to the target. Consumes 2 ammunition and cannot miss. 3-turn cooldown. Return Fire: Up to twice per turn, soldier will automatically fire back with their primary weapon when targeted by an enemy attack (including melee and AOE attacks, but excluding Overwatch fire). Fire Support: Soldier gains the ability to suppress a target with their primary weapon, and +10 aim on the suppression shot if the target triggers it. Suppression, of course, costs 2 ammo.
LT Air-Burst Grenades: Soldier’s thrown, launched, and rocket-propelled grenades gain +1 tile to their explosion radius. Defensive Mines and Heavy Weapons do not benefit from this increase. Salvo: Launching, throwing grenades, or using heavy weapons are no longer turn-ending actions for this soldier. Concussion Grenades: Soldier’s equipped flashbangs gain +1 charge and most other grenade/rocket types will now also Disorient targets on impact. Allies are immune to this Disorientation effect.
CPT Charge!: Soldier may activate this ability to charge up to an enemy within movement range and attack them point-blank with their primary weapon - behaving similarly to a melee dash attack but shooting instead of slashing. This attack is guaranteed to hit. 4-turn cooldown. Reposition: Once per turn, after landing a turn-ending standard shot on a flanked or exposed target, soldier is refunded a movement action point with a 35% mobility penalty. Rapid Deployment: Free action. After activating this ability, soldier’s next support grenade thrown or launched this turn will not cost an action. Valid items that benefit from Rapid Deployment are: smoke grenades, flashbangs, battle scanners, mimic beacons, ultrasonic lures, and frost grenades.
MAJ Concentrated Corrosives: This soldier’s equipped Acid grenades/rockets Rupture mechanical targets, causing robotic enemies to take +2 damage from subsequent attacks. No effect against targets immune to acid. Burn Out: This soldier’s equipped Incendiary grenades/rockets gain +25% chance to inflict Panic on organic targets. Targets which do not Panic then have a 75% to be forced to move to a new position instead. No effect against targets immune to fire/Burning. Chemical Warfare:This soldier’s equipped Gas grenades/rockets inflict a 1-action Stun on organic targets, such that they lose 1 action on their next turn. No effect against targets immune to Poison.
COL Destructive Nature: Soldier may equip Heavy Weapons, regardless of armor worn, and their equipped Heavy Weapons now benefit from the bonus damage provided by Explosive Ordnance (note, ONLY the damage bonus and none of the other benefits). Shredder: Soldier’s primary weapon attacks now shred armor. Shred value scales with weapon tier as follows: +1/+2/+3 Shred. Hold Position: When in full cover, the soldier may activate this ability to reload their weapon and immediately enter a special form of overwatch, firing on any enemies in range that move (or attack, with the *Covering Fire ability), until their ammo is depleted. Cannot be used while Concealed. 4-turn cooldown.
  1. Obviously, what perks do you select, and what perks, if any, do you prioritize picking up in the Training Center later to augment the build?
  2. What gear do you equip this soldier with?
  3. What squad size do you play with, and what role or synergy does this soldier occupy within that squad?
  4. If using Not Created Equal or something similar, what rookie stats do you look for in an ideal candidate?
  5. Are there any additional mods you use that influence the way you build and/or play with this soldier?
