So in one of Admirals Bahroos latest videos on his revisit borderlands series he mentioned a character that was based on risk and used literally blood filled guns and I thought I would expand upon that so this is what I have so far.
Action skill: The Blood Donator
Character pulls out his signature weapon that is hooked up to his blood stream with fires blood loaded cartridges draining his health as he fires (over using can kill you) damage goes up depending on percentage of health (lower = more) 100% = 1% damage. 1% health = 100% damage. Drains 0.5% health per bullet allowing for 200 bullets health regen allowed during the skills. Cool down 65 seconds. Base fire rate 5 bullets second. Duration of skill 40 seconds.
Casting animation: pulls out a cannula and jams into his arm and pulls out the gun and begins shooting. Cannula wrapped around his forearm needle hanging off the side and grabs it to cast his skill
Running out of duration animation: Yanks out the cannula out of his forearm and drops it down to hang off the side and puts his gun away
Going down because of overuse of the skill: Needle of the cannula bursts out of his arm spurting blood as he drops the gun and squeezes his arm, bleed out time doesn’t start until animation is over.
I am working on a full skill tree but thats currently in the works and updates will come along.
