Heres my wish list for a trap laying ship. Honestly I should be that ship that the enemy team LOVES to kill.
Wish List (and im using other games weapons for this)
1. Something like Half Life's satchel charges. You plant them and then remote detonate them. It would be really neat also if you planted them on say a "roof" and blew down a huge chunk of rock to crush a ship.
2. Laser trip mines. Again, half life one. They would put out a light blue or green laser that if you went over it made them explode. Shooting them would blow them up of course.
3. I loved the remote missile from Unreal. So in my head I can see the scout ship giving me intel and im flying my remote missile from a 1st person view into an enemy ship. Of course it would have a very slow rate of time to avoid being mega annoying and when firing im 100% vulnerable.
4. mini mines. I want to be running from an enemy and hit a button and my ship just throws out hundreds of mini mines. It would basically be a cloud of them, it would take a huge amount to kill the enemy player but it might discourage an beat up assault ship from chasing you.
