# 1 Can we 'go prone'?
07-29-2011, 12:02 PM
Can we get a 'Go Prone' ability (where you lie down on the ground, and can't move much if at all), for when we're fighting on maps with little or no cover?

It could perhaps be an ability that can only be used if you're a certain distance from the enemy - or is more effective the further you are from an enemy - and grants a significant bonus for the duration, like sprinting's dodge. Because of your smaller profile you'd be harder to hit, at a penalty of your being unable to move for 4 seconds, and it would grant a bonus to your personal shield restore serving the purpose of cover in an environment with no cover.

I've asked for this ever since I first heard of ground combat 2.0. But I wanted it to give an accuracy bonus to weapon fire with a penalty of 100% expose to melee when laying prone.

Considering running gives you 75% dodge(but you cant fire) and crouch gives you 50% dodge(but you can fire)
then logically any prone option would have the disadvantage of crouching but you would have to give it a dodge of 75% which is= silly.

Also when you are lieing on the floor your view will be obscured and as the enemys make no attempt to dodge you wouldnt end up in aranged fire fight, they will just run over and hack you to bits.

As crouch gives a -100 damage resistance vs melee....so prone would give an even higher disadvantage....yup you would get owned

I really would love to have a Prone ability. This would be great with the sniper rifle in long-range support.

+Very High Defense Rating
+Accuracy
+Range (small with pistols and shotguns, moderate with rifles, high with sniper rifles).

-Highly vulnerable to melee attack
-Vulnerable to AoE attacks (Grenades, Orbital Strike)

Sometimes I go prone several times a mission depending on the difficulty setting. Then I get rezzed by a Bo then I go prone again.

I for one would also like a "go prone" capability.
