Crusher Vulnerability To CAS/OB Strikes

Post by Steelpoint » 22 Jul 2017, 13:23

Summary: Make Crushers vulnerable to Orbital Strikes and to certain Close Air Support weapons, these weapons mainly being

Benefits: Who would win. Two 0.75cm/140 Mark 74 railguns designed to destroy military warships in space. Or a overgrown Lizard with a crested head?

Crusher invulnerability to orbital and high power bombardment from large scale military weapons seems not only unrealistic, but also unfair. OB's and CAS strikes consume limited resources, have long charge times and are both usually very easily detected and have very loud tells before they attack. Expanding all that effort only for a Crusher to dance around in the middle of a strike seems unfair.

This change would ensure that a OB/CAS is sufficiently deadly to all xenomorphs.
This is war, survival is your responsibility.

So a complete explosive rework? Adding checks and processes to explosives so they'd do more or less damage?
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

Crushers have been nerfed from their hilariously bad 'balanced' state, and being able to dance in artillery strikes isn't something alone to just crushers

CAS and OB in general need to be stronger than they currently are, with OB being the far stronger of the two.

Crushers are actually vulnerable to OBs. Speaking from experience, if you get direct impacted by one as a crusher, you will be gibbed instantly, no crit.

indeed, OBS and CAS need changes/ buffs in general, them being weak against crushers isn't really one of the bigger issues at hand
