Yes. Hurt things. Piss them off. Glow brightly attracting attention. I unleash hell. Then calmly walk by, tap the remains of your frame's head on the ground saying thank. Next battle!

Naaaaah. Just kidding.

Seriously well written. I'm getting a strong visual as well. Not my cup of tea, personally as everybody knows I will be a dedicated tank frame. But I like the concept mechanics behind this. Can see implementation in other ways.

1) A light frame
2) high mobility, minimal defense, moderate offense
3) medium reactor
4) Ability 1; zero-gravity field, kaiju the same size as this omniframe or smaller become immobile for the activation. omniframes get more mobility. radius about 4 to 5 large omniframes from the module outward. if used Graviton pulse granades also go on cooldown.
Ability 2; weakness exploitation. scans target kaiju for joints or cracks and places a tag for allies to see.
5) shoulder mounted graviton pulse granade launcher; cracks kaiju armor, brakes cracked armor. if used Zero-Gravity field also goes on cooldown.
6) primary: submachinegun
secondary: dual curved blades
7) Z-G Utopia, prioritizing mobility over defense its light-weight armor and reinforced frame the Z-G Utopia is a support/supression omniframe. The primary objectives of this omniframe are to disrupt smaller kaiju, increase ally frame mobility, and find weakness in kaiju armor or, if not are found, create them. Having so little armor leaves some of the inner-frame exposed.

Smooth Operator
1) Light Frame
2) 5% Defensive, 15% Offensive, 80% Mobility
3) Medium reactor.
4) Armament Dampening - While activated, your thrusters temporarily sync with your equipped weapon, and dampen the recoil of your shots with extremely efficient jets. You suffer no recoil, however your jetpack energy reduces at a rate proportionate to the recoil of your weapon. You cannot jetpack or glide while this ability is activated.
Skycloak - When activated while gliding more than 10 metres above the ground, projects an convincing image of the sky below the omniframe, rendering it almost invisible to below units. Immune to targeting by anchors. Automatically deactivates after 25 seconds or if you are less than 10 metres off the ground. Cooldown 2 minutes.
5) Shock Ballista - Fires a 1.5m bolt with a shocking tip that electrocutes and stuns enemies.
6) Suppressed Sniper Rifle
Suppressed SMG - shocking rounds
7) Designed as an infiltrator, the Smooth Operator frame allows a pilot to pass over enemy lines undetected and take out important targets with pinpoint accuracy. Very quick, highly mobile, but would not last long face-to-face with larger Kaiju or overwhelming numbers..

And just for fun, I present to you the UHC: Ultra High Cholesterol.
1) Heavy Frame
2) 100% Defensive, 0% Offensive, 0% Mobility
3) Heavy reactor.
4) Catch Breath. Activate to catch your breath. It makes you feel better. Recover 30% maximum health over 30 seconds. Cooldown 3 minutes.
Consume. Passive. Eat cheeseburgers. Eat â̳͔̙̅̿l͡l̞̭ͧ͆ ̝͗͆̕ͅo̦ͣf̃ͮ̏̌͊ͦ ̹̠̪t̝̮̰̻̻̬ͅḫ͉̭̍͋̔ẽ̙̟͔̠͈̗͔͒̎ͯ̆̋͂mͩͩ
5) Shoulder: The Butter Cannon - massive railgun assembly sturdily mounted to the left shoulder. You must be blocking with shield to fire this weapon. Yellowish glow. It hurts. A lot.
6) Heavy Machine Gun - explosive ammunition.
Fist and Shield - the sheer weighted mass of your frame make you a force to be reckoned with. Required to be equipped when using The Butter Cannon.
7) It's big. It's slow. Your thrusters can't shift your tremendous girth. Enemies don't hurt as much as your joints do.

1) Medium frame

2) 10% Defense, 60% Offense, 30% Mobility

3) Heavy Reactor (thinking heavy so it's accessible later in player progression because of the general playstyle difficulty and also so you can add powerups to general movement speed and evasive stuff without getting rid of the damage mods, can't really tell yet how this would work in game so it's hard to say right now)

4) Pick 2 abilities
>>Ability1 - Marked Reaper - AoE pulse to give all friendly targets in range Damage increase and a 10% chance to not consume ammo on firing. Lasts 15 Seconds, ~1minute cooldown
>>Ability2 - Firing Mode:Omega
Causes your primary weapon to empty the mag with the next shot, combining damage based on how many ammo charges are consumed. Removes Marked Reaper from self on first shot, causing it to be a guaranteed Critical hit if it lands. (removes buff even if shot misses). 2 Minute cooldown, can be reduced by kills/assist and critical hits

5) Pick a shoulder mount weapon
>>R.A.D. - Remote Assault Drone
Works somewhat like Redeemer in Unreal Tournament. Shoot it, navigate to enemy units, explode on click, deals low damage and applies damage taken increase to enemies

6) Pick primary and secondary weapon
>>Primary Weapon - non-auto Laser Sniper Rifle (no chargeup shots, must have small zoom scope or none at all to make it work inside corridors and buildings). Has to be accurate without aim-down mode as well as it functions as an assault weapon and not a long-range support rifle
>>Secondary Weapon - Laser Revolver (small mag, slow reload, causes ministun/stagger to hit enemies)

7) Name it and give a brief description of how it looks, feels and acts.
>>Name: CaliBear

Attack agressive Sniper frame, general gameplay would be running into semi-close or face-to-face range with a primary sniper rifle to buff yourself and nearby allies. Defensives mainly consist of moving and being fast, interrupting deadly attack animations/lunges towards you with the secondary pistol. Generally a "hit enemy get rewarded, miss them and get punished" kind of playstyle with a sniper rifle in close range.

1) Light Frame
2) Pure mobility
3) Small Reactor
4) Incendiary Rounds, Assisted Targeting
5) Laser Targeting Unit
6) Melee arm, 22 caliber Gatling gun
7) Forward Targeting Unit – This light frame is extremely fast due to its light configuration and its sole purpose is to utilize its Laser Targeting Unit which can quickly provide a targeting solution to Heavy Frames far from battle. With its Assisted Targeting computer, it an provide additional firing solutions, calculated out with enemy movement information to more accurately land mortar fire. It looks very utilitarian, is very very quick and reacts fast because the point is not to get hit.

The only thing I would think might be needed if the proposed idea is used is a more dynamic range of the first three points( I guess warframe's take on Tenno's is a good example; side grades to the base three choices for each) though that would def be mid to late development if at all.

Make Omni Frames deployable like the Thumper, you can add a whole lot of content that doesn't require an Omni Frame that lets a player get their money worth from spending it on character skins that is otherwise not visible in the open world.

Good idea!!!!

Yes, i remember 0v3rkill mentioned playing out of the mek from the start the meks are important but who is more important the pilots that command it ofc.

In warframe as an example transference lets us the pilot get out of the frame, but in this case stepping out of the mek and to emote/dance/etc with fellow pilots also go into areas meks find it harder to access etc.

Plus if there is some kind of event with fashion e.g every 2nd month perhaps or whatever works.
As an example there are 4 types of events Pilot specific, Mek/vehicle specific, pets specific, and Weaponary specific

Example

* G-suit/Outfit Fashion (Firestorm event)
This could be all firey and volcanic theme

* Mek / Vehicle Showcase (Shadow event)
This could be more sleek and stealthy theme

* Project pets (Fuzzy wuzzy event)
This could be for pets that are cute

* Weaponize (Justice & honor event)
This could be for weapon types e.g. melee or guns that have a
look of order such as police types to ancient warrior styles etc

Each event could be held live and those who cannot attend can submit pictures in the em8er forum
Each get viewed and judged and those can go in the hall of excellence. Where there is a dedicated section in the forum for that too with the colour scheme and setup of how they got that look.

Those who take part each earn some extra ingame credits, and those who are in the top 10 get a ingame voucher that can give discount from their desired fashion outlet a one time use locked on the account.

After participating in several of these events you can earn a title and badge e.g.
Stryking Looks

Think i went slightly off topic, however it is still relevant :p

I have 2 actually

1. Medium Frame
2. Even balance on mobility defense and offense. 30/30/40
3. Medium Reactor.
4. Abiilty 1, Vacumm grenade. Implodes sucking in surrounding units. Ability 2 , Cryo blast, shoots liquid helium freezing targets with in range.
5. Shoulder mount, boost jets, allowing for quick burst of motion.
6. Primary weapon, grenade laucher with ability to remote detonate the nades in mid flight./secondary short ranger flame thrower. WIth the secondary fire to flame burst and push back targets.
7. YinYang, Close range brawler. and crowd control . The nade launcher is ammo dependant so would only need reactor for flame thrower and abilities. Would run on the front lines using the boost jets to avoid fire and melee type enemies while setting up the vacuum gather and and freezing. Then finish it off with grenades or flame thrower. The enemies frozen would explode when hit with the flame throw from thermal expansion and shatter from the grenades for extra damage.

Second
1. Medium Frame
2. Mobility/defense/offense. 20/40/40
3.. medium to heavy reactor.
4. Poison cloud. Releases a poisonous cloud all around you that persists for several seconds. toggled on off, anything in the cload get as a DOT. Ability 2 is corrosive Blast, fires a ball of corrosive acid that explode on contact spreading to near by units and gives and armor debuff and DOT effect.
5. Shoulder Mount. Glue launcher, no damage but sprays down the ground with a thiock sticky glue slowing anything trying to walk through it.
6. Primary weapon, scout rifle with toxic rounds. Secondary nano machine launcher. Fires a small containers with nanomachines that can make repairs on what it hits.
7. The Mad Scientist , a back line defender and support, excels at defending bases , or thumpers, or map objectives. Higher defense to survive some hits while choosing how to best lay down its slow and poison fields, zoning off. Scout rifle for medium range and the glue wil make it easier to use at closer ranges. The repairs and armor debuffs will support your platoon weakening enemies and maintaining your own.

Now that I typed these out I have 2 or 3 more that just popped into my head . But Ill list em later.
