This is an idea for Ava, a female Assault who trades the damage options of other Assaults for the mobility to stay near the Monster or evade them, depending on the fight.
With good aim she can deal substantial damage, but she sacrifices some damage potential for damage reliability.
I envision her as an ex-pirate of sorts, using a battle-suit designed to assist in boarding ships and space-stations.
Main Weapon - Welding Laser
A long-ranged weapon that uses the charge ammo system of Markov’s Lightning Gun and Hyde’s flamethrower.
It emits a laser which grows in strength the longer it is fired without stopping, requiring Ava to keep a steady lock on the Monster to inflict proper damage.
The laser gradually grows in size, and when the charge is expended the gun sparks and vents open to release steam as it cools down.
Secondary Weapon - Assault SMG
A larger and bulkier variant of the SMG that fires more damaging rounds, but suffers from decreased accuracy.
Ava must remain close to the Monster to be effective while using it.
Ability- Raid Suit
Grants Ava unlimited jetpack fuel for a short time, with a substantial cool-down.
When the ability ends, Ava’s jetpack fuel is fully depleted automatically.
