A monster that shape shifts


#1

My monster idea is a monster that can either shape shift into whatever it consumes or take the victims abilities. I thought of this while watching some gameplay on evolve. And I thought to myself, why not talk about and hope that there could be a shape shifting monster in the game. Not only would it be hard for the hunters to find the monster but I also thought there should be a time limit for the monster, like every 25, 30 seconds your monster spazzes out because it can’t take that body for a long time. Or the monster could consume the prey and mutate a little to look like the creature you just ate in a way but have it abilities. Like you eat a trap jaw and now you have a better range of smell, or eat a tyrant and have a huge bite attack. This is definitely a wierd and bizarre idea I had but I wanted to see what you guys thought about this. So what do you guys think?

Sounds tough to implement, but a very interesting idea…maybe it could take the form of wildlife for stealth?


#3

Interresting, but complicated. I think if a monster like that existed, the hunters would shoot every wildlife in sight … slowing them too much and giving the monster free food for days … but I dunno it depends.

Yeah that’s what I thought to throw the hunters off their game but the monster would start to get hurt and would go back to its original form after a period of time.

That is true maybe there could be a hunter that can have a meter or a thermal that can tell you that " hey there’s the monster I can see him in the thermal" or something. That weapon can see through the disguise.

Or the monster could take ability characteristics from other monsters


#7

But then it would be the only Hunter effective in tracking him

As long as there isn’t another flying monster I don’t care what they make lol.

They said it’s not technically feasible.
