I am an avid fan of the Flood. They were a menacing force that could destroy the galaxy as we know it. Hell, they were even more threatening than the Didact. However, I find that they are lacking in the Matchmaking. The unbalanced Armor Abilities and lack of any randomization in the weapons was a huge turnoff for me. These are things that I would love to see implemented into this Playlist (though it would require a lot of time and may not happen as a result).
Unique Flood Assassinations: Wouldn’t it be cool if the Flood could assassinate players? Here’s my proposition. Instead of dying and respawning, players who are assassinated by Flood are instead held down by the flood player while an infection form mutates the victim in real time.
Infection Form Appearance: I believe that Flood forms should have the Infection form tendrils extending from their chests. This distinguishes them as flood and not any other mutant race in gaming.
Random weapons for Flood: While I can see the flaws, granting the Flood random weapons from a pool of a few in game weapons would actually bring the Flood to a more believable stance. In any campaign, you’ll see Covenant Forms with human weapons and Human Forms with Covenant Weapons. This made them a more challenging faction to fight and proved that they had some semblance of intelligence.
AGAIN, THESE ARE JUST SOME SUGGESTIONS. SOME MAY NOT AGREE WITH THEM WHILE OTHERS MAY AGREE WITH THEM.
What is your opinion?
