    yeah im sure mechs would be fun to fight against just like the current tank sponges all slashes with no sound reception or signs of damage
    anyway mechs will inevitably face the same exact problem that tank does wherein its too cost effective skill wise to the vehicle and get gutted and put in a garbage bin;

    marines already have the potential to be deadlier than a single xeno anyhow so its not like they worry about that type of balance on an individual scale for good players, alpha pvts maybe it applies

    also "its in the lore" or comics or w/e has never been a good reason or backup to any argument and you all know it else we'd have old acid blood 70 burn among other shit mechanics

    Just as benos doesn't have harm sprites, tank doesn't either, so would combat loaders, unless sprited and coded.
    Marines have potential to be deadlier than a single xeno only in configuration of fast speed (light armor to no armor) and PB buckshot. No other combo (besides specs, but specs aren't just single marine) has true potential to kill T1s and stunnable T2s (Unstrained warrior, spitter, lurker, burrower). There doesn't exist equipment and even chem combo that would allow single marine have equal footing when fighting T3s and only the best of the best equipment and chems would allow one to best unstunnable T2s.
    Combat Loaders would be slower than marine in armor, thus they would lack the ability to chase, thus not able to kill any beno on its own. If adjusted and balanced enough, like unability to PB for Combat Loaders, it suddently becomes susceptible to fast castes like runners.

    I'm 100% sure that 4 of those would be way better for both sides fun-wise than tank and APC ever were. Combat Loaders would fill the role that currently doesn't exist and that would be (as it is called in MOBA games) tank, or better "drill" into beno positions to break chokepoints.

    Lol yeah I remember when tank was op and most people, including marines, wanted it removed.

    Like Bex said, it only made the round better for the two tcs. Playing against it wasn't fun, nor was fighting it.

    We've been saying it for months, the vehicles do nothing of value but diminish the fun flr marines and xenos fighting alongside or against it. And it's dubious that the VCs are having fun with it as well, unless they're the type of fun hellbent on having the ability to have fun by powertripping at the expense of everyone else on the server.

    Give the tank quad smartguns with IFF.

    Give the Gunner Tac goggles instead of weapons and replace the weapons with a Tesla and Sentry.

    The Tank has gone from being able to single handedly carrying the round to being a giant metal target which does mediocre damage that gets killed 15 minutes after combat drop.

    Tank still has uses if you use it defensively, aka a glorified sentry.
