Pinball

Postby Allensh » Tue Oct 01, 2013 5:45 am

Trying to recreate a villain I built for Champions in M&M3. His name, Pinball, derived from an attack he did whereby he bounced off up to 5 targets in a row while doing move-throughs. I seem to be stuck on how to accomplish this same sort of attack in M&M3. Suggestions?

My wife plays a character that has an ability like that.

Don't forget to give him/her: Feature 1, Such a supple wrist. :lol:

Note that this is also Nightcrawler's attack where he multiple teleports and punches as he goes... same principle, different descriptor.

What about burst area, selective ?

You could also have it so there are a few alt powers with the same general idea so that in a confined space it gets absolutely nuts... split attack, multi-attack and the like... Quirks and flaws can represent the lack of walls and such to bounce off of for optimum damage on the ricochet.

It also sounds like Takedown. If the first guy falls, she bounces off and sails towards the next... This one has a greater potential to add in the multi attack, move by attack and whatnot...

Hmmm...

Pinball - Burst Area Damage, Selective - 3 points per rank
AP - Multiball - Ranged Damage, Multi-Attack, Linked to Enhanced Advantages (Move-by Action, Takedown 2, All-Out Attack) 4 plus 3 points per rank
AP - Leaping
