Pitch: Its a Forerunner/Promethean based equipment, essentially you can create a small platform where you are pointing (it should have a set distance I feel, for consistency/intuitiveness) and it can be used to get jump ups and stuff like that, the thing that makes this useful is that your team could utilize these platforms so it wouldn’t just help you but anyone (neutral, basically)
Depth: It would have some interesting uses, like you could use it to block shots (they are not indestructible, and disappear after 5-10 seconds max) use it slow down a vehicle, flag routes, etc. It doesn’t completely change the meta because it does what Repulsor does in a different way but I think the subtle differences is what would make it a great addition to the sandbox.
you press equipment button, in front of you appears a small platform.
Need I say more?
Yes but there’s no teamwork element to it, not to mention that an enemy could (on paper) also use these platforms. I think the strength of Repulsor/Grapple is that they are so diverse in how you can use them, so I didn’t want to come up with an ability that’s a one trick pony.
I don’t agree with that. Its already pretty nuts in terms of Hijacking. Grapple is in goldilocks zone as far as I’m concerned.
My idea doesn’t replace/remove anything, you could use it in combination with grapple/repulsor (not at once obviously) so you could create a platform in front of you, then a teammate could grapple onto it, that sort of thing.
Its not as -Yoink!- as Grav lift was, but more versatile/useful.
