Passive Damage and other traits

Can Apocalypse class machines begin too pass gas when taking damage to vital components?

In all seriousness, I think it would be cool and make Apocalypse class machines a little more intense during combat, leaving a toxic mist wherever they go simply because you decided to take them on.

It would also make you think twice before beating one with melee as they begin to ooze.

I also think some machines should set on fire before death, like prototype class because they are still in the test faze. And if they big and topple ontop of you, you should take damage.

Possible over charge of FNIX class and above classes like more speed or reload rate before death, the gitters, excessive smoking and sparks.

Just some thoughts


Really cool ideas. I’m just afraid that these additional effects are not as good for the performance or stability for older systems.

Is it the older systems that worked fine before updates the cause of the game performance and/or stability?

If there where new features that needed additional power, yes then the older systems may be the reasons why the game suddenly doesn’t run as it ran before. And these ideas of Lapsus mean more effects and more calculations to be made and therefore may affect the stability or performance on older systems.

Keep in mind that it looks like the devs develop on a pc and test on a pc. I don’t believe that they test all changes on every supported console of every generation. That means that some changes that work well on pc may be too much for example for a ps4 or xbox one s.

Apocalypse Class Machines passing deadly fart gas? I’m all for it.


:rofl::rofl: yes, I’m glad you like the idea!

Yeah I doubt older consoles would be able to take it, tho There is a point in which such consoles will be left behind for the sake of game progress.

The ideas I make are without consideration mind you, not even for consideration of my own machine, but for the sake of cool gameplay and epic fun, regardless of whether old specs can take it.

I can see the demands for the gas masks and the hazmat suit to work so you do not take damage from these types of effects like when the APOC machines were introduced.

This wouldn’t be new.
