Introducing the Jackal Commander!
By Amphioxus

The Jackal Commander is the overseer of the criminal organisation Jackal, an organisation that will do anything to get their hands on the high-tech equipment of CDA that is plastered across post-apocalyptic London. Although he prefers to remain anonymous, the Jackal Commander has agreed to come out of his mother's basement for a day, or maybe two, to try to hire the TF2 mercs. Unless they have other plans...



Stats:

Health: (((810+n)*n)^1.04)
Lives: 1
Rage Damage: 3600
Max Speed: 340
Damage per swing: 195


Notes: Since this is my first boss, I decided to stick quite close to the default stats

--------------------------------------------

Abilities:

1. Rocket Boots - Stealing prototype rocket boots from CDA is no problem for Jackal. Convincing someone to strap them on is an entirely different story.

Force: 0.9
Cooldown: 8 seconds
Charge Time: about 1 second


Notes: Brave Jump was always my favourite ability in Freak Fortress, so I decided to adapt it into my first boss


2. RAGE: SMG-9 - Although you could consider him physically incompetent, that in no way takes away from the fact that the Jackal Commander considers himself an ace with any gun.

Clip Size: 15
Damage per shot: 62
Duration: Infinite
Uber Time: Gain an uber while loading in the clip


Notes: If you've ever played Dirty Bomb, you'd know the power of the guns. The Commander's rage attempts to mimic this

--------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------

Special Thanks to...

I'd like to thank the Freak Fortress 2 community for helping me get my boss, and the server I used to test him, running smoothly. Specifically I'd also like to thank:

AnubisTF2: For helping out with the server and boss sounds. 'preciate it

Sadao: For being an absolute champion and helping me fix all the little problems I had with the boss, from the model to the .cfg

--------------------------------------------

Downloads

See attached below the file jackalcommander.zip, which contains all the files for the boss.

Have fun!

--------------------------------------------

Updates

1.1 - Reduced clip size from 20, to 15
-Increased rage damage by 1100

Notes: I wanted to avoid centring the Commander's game-play too much around his rage.

1.2 -Moved Cantsing.mp3 voiceline from killing spree line to lastman line

--------------------------------------------

I'd imagine the sound cue + the clip load time + the high damage fall off + depending on player aim (more so than a rocket launcher or grenade launcher in many instances) should make it fair. Also are you saying making yourself hard to hit is not possible when up against hitscan weapons?

making yourself hard to hit is not possible unless you move as fast as a scout especailly when the boss have 20 clip

also i am just gonna be honest and say giving the boss a hit scan weapon is not new/interesting/unique xd

its a good start and thats it

I've made the decision to reduce the clip size and increase the rage damage, as I feel his gameplay would have been centred too much around his rage. The .zip file has been updated.

In terms of originality, I'm mostly interested in making the character unique, while also making him fun to play as/against, not necessarily a highly original idea in terms of combat. That's something I'm thinking of expanding to later on, especially as my knowledge of plugins and boss creation is only in its infancy.

making the character unique does not help the game play at all so imo its better to not pay too much attention into that

I don't think I'm being 'harsh' I'm just giving you my opinions on your feedback.

I just realised what you mean. I have to completely disagree here. If the Vagineer (for example) was just a default engineer would you want to play as him? Of course not! He'd be boring to play as. What makes him entertaining and memorable is not really his kit, but his character.
