Hello, just recently bought the game and loving it. The freedom of movement and just the simplicity of the game compared to other shooters make's it unique. But there is no reason the game can't expand into more areas, not that it will but I like to discuss possibilities. Also since I'm still new there are most likely balance and other things in-game I am not aware of that could be affected negatively without my knowing so any players that do know these things please correct me. Really the goal of this thread is try to bring customization and versatility into the game, hopefully with ideas with the potential to be effective and balanced. And I just like discussing ideas
First Idea: Ammo Types
Having multiple ammo types for the main gun. I like the idea but have trouble coming up with some good examples. I could imagine some things like faster bullet travel speed, perhaps more accurate but less damage. Then again head shots could be performed more easily or change it so it takes a couple to count as a head shot. While I do believe in, if it ain't broke don't fix it, and this most likely will complicate and unbalance things, it's still a interesting idea. What are some Ammo types you all can think off?
Second Idea: Suit Types
This really starts changing the game. Ex, faster suits but less health, slower suits with more health, standard stuff. Don't know if they would be great but I'm sure their could be some unique things thought up. Just putting it out there.
Third Idea: Perks
This one I think would be best implemented if done right. One example but really basic, Modernwarfar 2. I do not own this game, and most likely never will, but I do enjoy the small ability to add some customization such as ammo pierces walls, dropping grenade's on death. Cool ideas, but need to be completely changed to have it work in this game. Really basic customization but something.
The other is suit and gun upgrades. Say suits and guns have a certain amount of slots. And certain pieces eat up different slot amounts. Minor upgrades only use small slot spaces and more useful/powerfull/larger pieces use more. And these can range to anything. Ex, scanner picks up and marks enemy's faster. The charge forward boost lasts 2 seconds longer. They could be anything and even add completly new things such as abilites small or large into the game. Most likely small minor things so help make it slightly easier to balance. And each thing can have negative things, such as some usefull slot you have is really good. But takes 20 seconds to come back online if you power down and power back up your suit due to energy cost. I beleive if done right could bring new play styles and interesting fights. Agian, if done right. If done at all.............
Please post any of your ideas on this, such as new ideas or comments. Agian I do not expect any of this to come into effect and if they never do, I still would be happy with the game. Please no flaming and only constructive comments. If you dont like, please note and move on.
@Original poster, not to be a douche but common forum edict dictates you attempt to look at old posts before posting, your just posted a ideas that have, been suggested many many times. I'm not trying to be a ****, its good e-manners read before posting.

maybe instead of perks you could put gun attachments like:
Sniper scope; zooms in more, is more accurate but damages less.
incindery ammo(joking) but it would be funny to see someone covered in frozen flames.
umm... im outta ideas, tbh i dunno if this could work or not
Armor customize would be nice. I really think the slot ideas would be neat.
Such as perhaps faster targeting would eat up 1 slot point where as something else like 3 second longer boost would eat up 2 slot points. Would need to think of balance/fun ideas that would use the respective number of slots. And each suit has, idk 5, 10 slot points? Again it needs working on and tweaking for it to work. And some thing could have negatives. Such as faster targeting takes 20 seconds to come online after powering down and powering back up your suit for example.
