Underimplemented Gorillas

Postby TrumpetPlaya » Wed Jun 12, 2019 6:12 pm #497947

Just found out I can turn into a gorilla as geneticist. It's cool and all but there's a lot missing from gorillas.

-Less HUD and inventory than monkeys, there's only the hands icons
-No health indicator so i have to carry around a med scanner
-Can't smash anything despite having increased melee damage

I would expect gorillas to essentially be under powered hulks but they're actually just shitty assistants. A fix to this would be to copy over the monkey HUD to gorillas as well as letting them smash walls like NPC gorillas can. I wouldn't want to see gorillas become meta or overpowered, but I think these basic changes would make gorillas realistic and consistent with NPC gorilla behavior.

You can see your health in the side panel. Gorillas are very strong against any melee combatant.

I've killed 3 cultists at once and easily 1v1'd a changeling. Almost killed a ninja, but he retreated and lasered me down.

I just wish gorillas could pick up and throw barrels.

I usually drag my back behind me when i am playing gorilla, remember to bring bruise packs.
