If we cant hack vehicles, we should be able to hack Soldierss


So they are saying no hacking vehicles because the textures cost too much.


Well how about hacking actual soldiers?


First of all it should be hard to do, but possible and it should be only done by infiltrators.



This is my vision of this.

First of all this only works on targets who are still for sometime like snipers,engineers repairing, anybody who is still......The hacking will either be the same way you hack vehicles in PS1, or it will include some sort of stealth animation of requiring to get to position and grappling the unsuspected soldier....This itself could require skill so the person getting attacked can defend himself and prevent being hacked and the hacker if good can actually hack him faster.

Either way if the hacker is succesful, it should take him some time, lets say 20-30 seconds normally.




Anyways once the hacker hacks the person, he has 30 seconds(or more) for the hack soldier to not get detected(he can kill,chat,give orders etc without suspicion at this time), once he does get detected...The hacked soldier can now chat and call his buddies, and he will show up as an enemy now with some cosmic changes like red eyes or subtle texture changes....Turrets and detectors will show him as an enemy also.

Meanwhile the hacker using the hacked body, will stay in a cloak state but the cloak state will eventually run out and the hacked body will eventually die or get unhacked.


Anyways it should be part of the skill tree and be one of the elite skills on the infiltrator side....Now I know Planetside doesn't want the slow down of gameplay so hacking somebody should be very difficult to pull off....


Please put it, I wanna hack NC soldiers and backstab people.
