Now that the BIG Alpha is coming to a close, and the third tier hunters have been revealed, we all have a pretty good idea of what a balanced hunter looks like. If you had to design one of the new fourth DLC hunters, what class would it be, and what abilities would it have?
After playing the alpha, I have come to love and bond with at least one hunter from every class, except for assault and trapper. I do enjoy playing as all of the hunters, but those two classes just lack the “THIS IS MY HUNTER” feel for me. So If I had to make a new hunter, I would make a new Trapper!
The role of the Trapper is to find and contain the monster, which can be difficult if you are up against a particularly stealthy opponent who loves to double back on you or set up ambushes. The first ability of my new trapper, would be a Heart Beat Detector. It would operate in a way similar to the monsters smell ability, allowing me to anticipate a potential pounce attack, or pinpoint a hidden monsters position with ease. It would probably have a somewhat shorter range than the monsters smell ability, but may make monsters start taking that smell range perk this ability I feel is comparable to Daisy, Griffin’s sound spikes, and Abe’s tracking dart
My second item would be deployable gravity traps. They would have a range 25ish percent larger than Markov’s mines, and when a monster hits that area, it is pulled in toward the center of the trap for a couple of seconds, and has one of his stamina bars expended. This helps to temporarily reduce a monsters movement, and ability to escape/position.
My new Trapper’s main weapon would be duel wielded pistols that he flips off his belt old western style They would be fairly low damage, and only have a medium effective range, but can be fired at a decent speed.
The Trapper class ability is the dome, so naturally he has that too!
While I thought about my new Trapper, I have come up with a name and image for him! His name is Archie, and he is a very mousy looking guy. He is somewhat of a machine wiz, and gets along well with Hank (my favorite character )
Anyway, I want to hear all of your ideas as well! Make them as thought out and detailed as you can!
