I guess a mounted weapon would be useful but I think it would be much better to have us use our own weapons and shoot with them. Similar to it now but you can aim while moving. You wouldn't have to stop.
It would be awesome if someone rode shotgun with you and can fire of others.
two words - homing missile.
Let all lock on weapons lock on the bike too and then use the jump as a scrubbing mechanism (unless dumbfired) - plus it'd make life harder for hawk users as they would have to think twice about divebombing the flag carrier from the front
Very intriguing topic. My thoughts are having a full distance range MG on front with mid level accuracy and light damage. With a spread target range like the WH DS MG or the SH kinetic rifle where the bullets don't hone right in like a sniper obviously.
The chases are so cool, but w/o any 'run and gun' option, it lacks IMO.
I guess being able to lock on would be a great idea but if you were to lock on to a bike, then you should be able to lock on a buggie.
I've taken bikes out with the tank much easier than anything else. There are plenty of other ways to knock bikes out.
I think -every- vehicle should be lock-on-able - from the razorback to the hawk mech mode - but each should have an effective scrub move:with a cooldown of a second or two for fairness or a set amount per vehicle (controlled by the 'chaff' button)
Razorback - speed burst (?) -the Razorback boosts forward with a tyre squeal a few feet with the hawk acceleration blurring (not enough to be useful in moving), the missiles homing sending them to where the razorback was
Sidewinder - Jump+speed boost
Tank - Chaff field , sending the missiles wildly out of control
Hawk Mech mode - chaff field as above
I think the movement on the jetbikes should be tweaked. the drift is akward(especially when you have engine mods) and when you aim the jetbike loses all momentum. I think that LBI should make it so that if i aim while i am in the air i don't drop like a stone, it's really wierd.
To be honest I don't think there should be any lock on capability on vehicles except for Hawks, Mechs, tanks, and jet packs. I could go into more detail but I wont.
Also, I really wish I could get rid of the scrub move on the Hawk's controls. I want the advanced flight back! No more scrub button
Thats fair enough....from day one I've thought the mech should be lock-on-able as its essentially a walking jet fighter of the same size or there abouts - and when the tanks health is improved, I could see the virtue of tank lock ons...
