I’d like a character with non weapon based skill trees.
Like, say, the Action Skill shows enemies through walls, show enemies outside of your FOV and behind you, weapon trajectories, enemy health, weak points, stats, etc. Action skill is basically a tactical scanner.
Left skill modifies your mobility, allowing you to run/stand along walls and ceilings, make it so you can perform long jumps, dash in any direction, with the final skill being a grappling hook where you can instantly zip to wherever your crosshairs are aimed. This way you can bounce around the environment for maximum tactical mobility.
Middle skill modifies the action skill to provide buffs, such as increased crit on weak points, reveal invisible enemies, or wherever the first bullet in your clip hits is their new “weak point”. Middle skill lets you “focus” your tactical scan on a single enemy, targeting them and applying all buffs to allies targeting that enemy as well. Final skill could be like a reverse adaptive shield - If your gun is non elemental, it automatically switches to the most effective element against the last enemy shot. (Switches to electric rounds if a bullet hits shields, then switches to fire if a bullet hits health, switches to Corrosive if a bullet hits armor, etc, etc).
Far right skill tree…not sure. Maybe this could be the Sniper class to accomodate the environment hopping and tact scan. But how to differentiate from past snipers? OOH maybe allow shots to ricochet, but like Deadshot in Arkham Origins. That is, you can see a trajectory line as you move your reticle. And rather than homing in on the enemy, you can use Tact Scan so the richochets automatically home in on a single “tagged” enemy, and beyond that, it automatically targets Crit points.
Waddya think? Could something like that be the next “scout” class in BL3?
Wait adjust the Action skill so when you initially press it, it reveals all surrounding enemies, but then you can press it again to tag a single enemy to focus all debuffs on.
Also, I’d like to see Nisha and WIlhelm return. Easy enough, by saying Nisha has been Brick’s prisoner, and fell for him after he tortured her, and Wilhelm uploaded to a fully robot body.
