Giving the Side Missions by Veronica in South Coast in the Fnix Rissing DLC
I can’t help but think it will be something that would involve Veronica when we meet her again ^.^
In the Mission “Virus” you enter several Fnix outposts in the South Coast and hack the Mainframe
In the First one the hacked machines fight other Fnix machines (that spawns outside the base)
in the Second the hacked machines just blow up a few seconds after being activated
in the Third and final a Rival Fnix Runner Rival spawns [Edvard “The Vaccine”] and a Apoc Runner
Not my video, but here are some Timestams for Key parts in the mission:
To me it ended with a question, as if this wasn’t the final part of it of this Mission.
So I’ve been thinking if/when we meet her Again she, Maybe with some help from Patrik, (From Bjørntunet on Himfjall)
Or new Character that have been in talks with the others
would together have found have out to get a Runner disconnected from Fnix and be Friendly to the resistance acting as a Mechanical Guard dog.
So I’d be Wondering if there would be a DLC with a Mission where you’ll acquired a Friendly Companion Runner?
That you could customize with Color and upgrade with Armored platting, some cosmetics like headwear, small flag on it’s back with the Resistance logo, chain or bandana around neck?
and to equip a Weapon (Shotgun, SMG, Assault Rifle, LMGs, Missile/Grenade weapons, but no Sniper weapon)
and Setting it’s behavior:
Pack Mule: can carry any kind of items, but will not fight aside kicking
Seeker: Spotting and highlighting enemies for you, can only be equipped with Binocular and vision mods
Combat: Fights along with you, can carry 1 weapon (all but Sniper Rifles) and Specific (Like Turrets for Bases)
or if you have the “Healer” Skill it could be equipped with Medical items and Adrenaline shots
and run around and heal and revive you or your Friends/Co-op Players.
It probably should also mimic the players Crouch and prone stances while not in combat
It would also be interesting if it could respond to hand motion emotes:
Point (go to or attack), Wave (wait here), Beacon (Follow), Thumbs up/Celebrate (who’s a good boy?) ^.^
Maybe it could have icon over it like a Player have their Steam-name, so you can see where it is among all the other machines
and show on map if it is not Following you, so you can find where you told it to stay put ^.~
and probably should be able to revive itself after combat with 1 health (and come back to you)
that you then can repair with Steel, Lead, Aluminum, Titanium and Tungsten up to it’s max health. (each metal material scale in healing power with it’s Tier)
Also Armored Plating would increase it’s health depending on the Upgrade tier: Steel → Lead → -> Aluminum → Titanium → Tungsten → err Cement? <.<;
Maybe it should be limited to 1 per world, Probably the host Player?
