So during the live stream of Quantum, I brought up the idea of an alternate Kala Kapur with the ability to switch places with a hunter of choice.
The idea was briefly shut down due to the thought of bugs and coding that would make this character unbareable. This I understand, but I still stay strong to the idea that this character could work very well if carefully built.
Her arm would have advanced into something a little more up-close and personal, as that was my initial concept with her, if a monster is focusing your medic (which during PVP is the first thing they usually try to do), you can switch places with your medic so you take the remainder of the damage. You’re a saviour.
PLUS, if you’re being focused, you can switch places with assault. How much you wanna bet THAT’D scare the monster?
This would also go hand in hand for trackers/trappers where if he/she is behind the group, and you’re in the lead. You can switch places so the tracker can get a head start.
Now this obviously sounds like it’d be a nightmare to fight, but not if you put a cooldown of 7-15 seconds between switch outs. This would ensure you don’t just spam the ability to hearts content. This would also make sure Sunny still has her incredible advantages with the jet pack gun.(Love her JP gun to death btw <3)
This would also need to be a skill, and not a weapon. So reload speed wouldn’t change this, OP would outright break this idea if it were a weapon.
Please, as a HUGE fan of Kala and everything support does as a general class, give support some love! <3
Keep up the great work with Stage 2, I miss Nightclub a little, but the OPa and Cata maps are a blast!!
