My favourite machine type in Generation Zero is by far the RUNNER. Yeah the other are all cool too, but I like the RUNNER the most because of the variety of weapons at their disposal as well as there versatility when it comes to combat. Not to weak in terms of damage dealt and agile, like the hunter.
What I want the new MAULER concept to be is an Inbetweener for the RUNNER and the HUNTER. Stronger the RUNNER in terms of damage dealt at each class level respectively, but not as fast or manoverable as HUNTERS at having the advantage of increased armor when compared to the RUNNER.
In short I want the MAULER to be the Pitbull of Generation Zero!!!
Let me know your thoughts below. Happy Hunting!!!
