Amaru rework thoughts0 Likes/3 Replies/39 ViewsOriginal poster Halowee 11 posts
Adding reverse grappling: Amaru can grapple from inside the building, as she goes through the window, the anchoring and slings stay on and the women just gonna throw arms above her head, head over then start diving down the external walls.
Adding soft breach: the hook has the other function and the other indication that target soft hatch from above, walls, and barricades at same level of her. Amaru shoots the hook with a tug-of-war posture and then she doesn’t fly, instead soft wall or hatch falls over in 1s. I think this sort of make sense when the anchoring isn’t as sturdy as our op. This mechanism will allow special long range soft breach, but Amaru will stand still for seconds and then redraw weapon.
Adding 15s extra cooldown at the beginning of the round, also, the grappling will be loud and break barricades that had been broken to the degree of 1 melee hit or more before the op flies through: the obvious way of use for Amaru gadget is about the most nonsensible game mechanic imo, choosing her usually comes down to RUSH with new routes, there should be at least a way to counter-play this. If people want to rush, they should face deterrents like updated Kapkan, barbered, mirror, deployable shield and what not, leaving alone most of the time the border armory sandwich, bank ceo, consulate 2F connector windows these positions, even it could overall be not very effective, starting off easy at these positions and forcing trades are still not healthy imo.

@halowee Amaru is an entry fragger that's designed to flank the defending team, every suggestion you made would defeat her purpose as an operator and turn her into a support operator with soft breaching capabilities, which means she would require a flex operator to be there to cover her, like how you would when you have a Thatcher and Thermite. So I'm sorry but no, these suggestions would not work for Amaru and would be best given to a future operator.
