Hey everyone, I’ll be posting this on other PP boards when I get the chance.
Given the limited enemy types currently in game, I think there’s a lot to be desired in terms of variety at the moment. So lets all try and come up with new Pandorans for the hell of it.
I like the pelagic horror theme of Phoenix Point, and to add on to that, I think a cool addition would be a sort of Giant Mantis Shrimp mid-sized enemy.
As far as I know (haven’t completed the game) there aren’t any Pandorans with a strict melee-oh gawd I have to kill this thing asap- niche (Stompy chirons maybe?). Kind of like the berserkers from Firaxcom. It’d be pretty terrifying to encounter a Mantis Shrimp Pandoran (stealthy but squishy?) that threatens a close range “snap”, that could crack open a heavily armored squady or vehicle like the crabs they prey on IRL.
Players can watch in horror as a Pandoran Mantis Shrimp swoops in from the mist FoW, stuns a squady, and carries them off to be eaten.
