Ive had an idea for a new assault. how about a generation 1 bacilik soilder that is part cyborg.
his/her primary weapon would be a drill that is actually part of him/her. this drill would be mechanical and do extremely rapid damage since he/she would have to get so close to the monster.
ability #2: a claw that he/she uses to grab onto the monster. once latched on, he/she rides the monster allowing the monster to take him/her anywhere it goes. this ability would also enable the drill to do health damage instead of armour by drilling into the monsters face. no this would not do extra damage like bullet weapons would.
ability #3 would be acid spit to allow reliable damage like the minigun and assault rifle at range but is hard to hit like the stasis gun. once hit it would do damage over time.
ability #4 would be the personal shield.
what does everyone think?
