Hi im maxx i play though armor games and i kind of feel that elites are overpowered. im level 32 and my survivors all do a little bit over 100 DPS each. i went to raid a level 35 military base and a elite big biker guy caring a club of sorts. My fighter had no chance, I LITERALLY STARTED RUNNING HER IN CIRCLES TO STOP THE ELITE FROM KILLING HER. My options maybe to make elites a little more on the DPS side and a little less on the bullet sponge side, or maybe they have special ability like every 5 hits they throw they stun everybody within a radius. yeah i think they need to be tweaked but just not to "oh there a bigger zombie MORE BULLETS" more like they have a strategy to handling them. i know im probably not the most experienced or most qualified to judge them but i feel if there going to be called "elite" and have a heath marker above them unlike other zombies they should FEEL special and "elite". so con if you feel like hearing a few good ideas hear me out
-on death a timer for an engineer to disarm a bomb in the zombie or the radius around him will explode like a trap
-For every increment of time this zombie spawns smaller zombies like out of its stomach (but nothing obscene on the animations)
-this zombie at a short range or a melee like usual will (with a successful hit) cover the victim in acid and moves at a slower rate and cant do any action (scavange or heal)
these are just 3 to start off (maybe) but im just tryng to give some suggestions, i feel zombie PvE is a little stale and its literally just everything else is ok and when a rush comes just find a place to wait it out. This is just to very up game-play every once in a while ya know.
--- BUT IN GENERAL LIGHTEN UP ON THE BULLET SPONGES TOOK ME 4 MINUTES TO KILL HIM
