Long time lurker/MO player here, stunned as always with the work of the Mental Omega team. But I have so many questions, I finally decided to start posting on this board. What's bugging me today? The Epsilon stolen tech unit, the SCAVENGER.
So if you infiltrate an Allied Tech Lab, you get the Scavenger. I wanted to know all of the possible weapons it can obtain, so if you guys could help me complete a list, that'd be awesome!
-Starts with Drain Beam, cannot target infantry, slowly chips away at vehicles and buildings. When a vehicle dies from damage from the beam, Scavenger acquires a new permanent weapon.
-After killing an IFV unit type, some kind of heavy anti-infantry and AA machine gun is equipped.
-After killing a lighter tank (Bulldog, Rhino, etc.) a light cannon is equipped.
-After killing a heavy tank (Abrams, Colossus, Mirage, etc.) a dual-super heavy cannon is equipped.
^^^^ The above ones are the only ones I'm positive about. Below, there are a few which I am pretty sure I saw, but the game's action was to hectic and fast to know for sure.
-Killing a Charon Tank seems to change the Drain Beam into a beefed up version, like a "Chrono Beam".
-Killing Blizzard Tank seems to give the Blizzard cannon to the Scavenger.
-Killing Prism Tank gave a modified Prism cannon.
This is all I've been able to identify so far. For Stolen Tech Units, the Scavenger may be a hidden gem if we can put it all together and figure out exactly how it works. I'd be happy to open up an Unholy Alliance match with someone specifically to kill 1 of each vehicle with Scavengers so we can identify exactly what can be acquired from each faction. Thanks for any contributions!
