These are the abilities I want to see from the new monster, basically they all parallel a hunter ability. I really like the whole monsters are learning from the hunters idea so here’s some abilities I hope to see.
Web Trap: Maggie Harpoons. Basically a web version of the harpoon traps that maggie lays down. We’ve already kinda got Griffin Harpoons covered with abduct and tongue grab, it’d be neat to see this variant.
Poison Spit: Val Tranqs. Something that you could snipe with from long range that will behave exactly like a Val tranq. Cut their move speed down to a crawl unless they jetpack.
Acid Spike: Weak Points (Val/Laz/Torvald). Give the monster the ability to snipe a hunter and then deal double damage to a hunter for the next 30 seconds (or however long the normal weak point lasts).
Poison Cloud: Hyde Toxic Grenade. You really wouldn’t even have to change anything about it. Just keep everything the same.
Explosive Egg: Markov Mines. Let the monster drop explosives that will force the hunters to burn abilities to clear. Immune to normal attacks (or at least have a ton of HP) and deals huge damage.
Aggression: Parnell super soldier. Give it all the same buffs as super soldier: double move speed, cooldown reduction, damage bonus. Would also burn 20% of the armor (or health) to use.
Regenerate: Laz Glove. Heal all health damage that has been done to you recently.
Vampire: Slim leech. Regenerate health and armor by dealing damage.
Spore Cloud: Slim Spore Cloud. Throws crazy green particle effect all over the hunters screen and keeps the hud from showing the location of the monster or the hunters.
Traversal Boost: Sunny Jet Pack Boost. Monster gets +120% traversal speed and distance for the next 4 traversals, recharges at the same crazy rate that the jetpack booster does.
Peirce Shot: Crow Rifle, Cabot Railgun: Shoots through shields at long range, nothing you can do about it, but not have low health.
Force Field: Jack Repulsor. Makes the hunters unable to move any direction but directly away from the monster.
I know you only get to have 4 abilities, but it’d be nice to see some of the above things make it into the new monster or some of the variations.
