I’ve seen how a lot of people would like to see that fantastic spider sentry as a player character, and I’ve been thinking how his current boss abilities could translate to something smaller and mobile.
Then it hit me: Summoning small minions to fight for him.
He could play a lot like Azir from League of Legends. Spawns up to 3-4 soldiers to do the majority of his combat / dash to a summoned soldier / move a spawned soldier / wall of soldiers as an ult.
Though, to fit more for battleborn, I can see Geoff spawning up to 3–4 little spider bots, being able to command them to focus on a target (maybe with a reload command?), quick dash to a spawned minion that he targets (possibly doing damage to anything between him and it), and as an ult, spawn a large minion bot that either has a timer or simply dies when it takes enough damage.
His main weapon could be a modified sentry turret (that might have a possible augment to launch snare traps?)
Anybody have any thoughts?
