HAV vS Bastion

8 replies 258 views Edited 3 weeks ago

Can they make the bastions machine gun be an HMG? And the bastion be better all around for tank killing? It's annoying to think the HAV is free and outpaces the bastion in every way (nearly)

By HMG, do you mean giving it a raw damage boost or a special property such as AP rounds or Unstoppable? Or maybe Ministun?

@LexXAnders  The idea you mention, if I understand correctly, is something I really wanted for long time for the Hammer Chariot rider.

With how the turning is in the bastion. You can get out of sticky sitiations better. You can get pinned up against and wall and destroyed with the HAV. Also I'm not 100% on this but I'm pretty sure the Bastion's cannon has more splash damage than the one on the HAV.

With how the turning is in the Bastion, it's better for getting out of sticky sitiations. On the other hand, with the HAV it's easier to get pinned up against and wall by an IFV or group of  Warlords. Also I'm not 100% certain on this but I'm pretty sure the Bastion's cannon has a biugger splash damage radius than the one on the HAV.
