Proxy Companions - More companions

Recommended Posts

This was an idea that derived from an idea I provided to a friend.

They suggested that there would be Proxy pets. Miniature variants of the bosses Jackal, Lynx, and the Hyena's. (Maybe Razorback, but don't expect them to be relatively bigger than a miniature Jackel. Narrow spaces and what not).

Basically, as experienced players can tell - Miniature Jackal companions, Miniature Lynx's, and Miniature (or normally sized) Hyena's companions.

Basically (again), the players seize the means for which the Corpus build their more robotic Proxy modeled infantry, and the Tenno utilize them to create companions of their own - albeit, at a size that can follow them into combat.

Mini-Jackal - Not as resilient and large as the original model, but you know this Proxy was built to hold a position and jostle enemies around with it's stomping attacks. Carries with it the same strength and weakness of damaging the legs before the torso and head are vulnerable. Relatively high health and armor, not as nimble or quick as the Tenno and lighter models, so it will aggressively teleport around to keep up with the Tenno, if the owner is sufficiently far enough away to warrant teleportation that is. It can unleash a salvo of Plasma Grenade clusters to carpet bomb a space in front of it. Blueprint for Mini-Jackal drops at an uncommon rate.

Mini-Lynx - Just like it's counter part, somewhat resilient but smaller. Doesn't share the Jackal/Mini-Jackal's weakness (IIRC), but instead deploys Mini-Osprey drones that will beef up it's shield and shield regen rate to ridiculous levels. However, Mini-Lynx is not invulnerable while Mini-Ospreys are alive, instead the Mini-Lynx's mini-Osprey's provide damage reduction so long as the Mini-Lynx has shields and at least one drone is alive beefing it. In addition, while Mini-lynx will spawn drones - it'll summon one every ten seconds (WIP), until a maximum of three drones are spawned. No modifications will increase this spawn limit. Blueprint for the Mini-Lynx drops at an uncommon rate.

The Mini-Osprey's produced by Mini-Lynx also benefit from Mini-Lynx's mods, but don't expect the Mini-Osprey's to be resilient little things either. Enemies are likely to prioritize the Mini-Osprey's over Mini-Lynx until the M-L is vulnerable again. Just like the Mini-Jackal/Jackal, it's not quick nor agile, so it'll teleport to it's owner if it's owner is far enough away. Can deploy also one turret at a time onto the field, providing additional fire.

Min-Hyena - Just like it's original models, they come in four flavors: Heat, Cold, Electric, and Lead (Normal). Each "flavor" comes with it's own benefits and detriments, but they carry with them the generally increased agility and dexterity - able to leap, buck, and weave to skew with enemy aim, and able to punish some of the slower wit opponents that cross it. They can even leap up and adhere to surfaces to attack from angles that other models of Proxy that cannot.

  • "Heat" Mini-Hyena - Just like it's "Hyena NG (Nitroglycerine)" model variant, it'll unleash a wave of fire in front of it to sear enemies that are caught in it, and will lob a "blast grenade" forward at single enemies or groups of enemies, doing blast damage. Note: Each of the models also have a "repeater" function that works like a built-in fire arm. "Heat" Mini-Hyena's Repeater does heat damage.
  • "Cold" Mini-Hyena Just like it's "Hyena LN2 (Liquid Nitrogen)" model variant, it'll unleash a wave of cold in front of it, freezing enemies caught in it's path and doing significant damage. This model also has a constant "Cold" aura emanating from it, slowing down enemies that are in close proximity to it. It's Repeat function does cold damage.
  • "Electric" Mini-Hyena - Just like it's "Hyena TH (Thorium)" model variant, it'll unleash a stream of electricity along the ground in front of it, jolting enemies with guaranted shock proc. In addition, it has the ability to charge at enemies in front of it.
  • "Lead" Mini-Hyena - Just like it's "Hyena PB (Lead)" model variant, it has no specific element effects of abilities, instead it possesses heavy firepower. It has the ability to perform "Lead Storm", where it'll leap in to the air and twirl around - unleashing gunfire in every direction around it, as an anti close-combat measure. In addition, "Lead"'s repeater does Slash and Puncture damage, and will generate an aura that replenishes small amounts of shield to itself and allies nearby. "Lead Storm" does blast damage.

The Mini-Hyena's have above average health, shield, and armor values. Blueprints for the Mini-Hyena's drops at a common rate.

While Proxy's do not degenerate over time like the more fleshy companions Tenno's have - instead their "Structural Integrity" de-gradates over time, instead, requiring "Repair Kits" to tune them up and repair them to pristine condition, instead of using a DNA Stabilization kit. Repair Kit's also can be crafted from salvage, alloy plates, and/or polymer bundles, with the provided blueprint. Drop rates are subject to change.
