Burrower carapace suggestion
« on: November 19, 2022, 07:57:34 pm »
Nobody uses them.  The little extra bit of heat isn't enough of an incentive to use them over psi beetle carapaces or anti-rifle plates.  Since the +con food is burrower burgers, I was thinking it would be good if burrower carapaces gave +1 con or some extra hp (scales with quality?); the pig leather of tacvests/riot armors.

I think the main reason nobody uses them is that it’s hard to get a high quality burrower carapace. If there was a high quality burrower carapace with a fixed location people would be singing its praises. Burrower carapace has a small niche with tac vests where you can get 50% armor penalty with a sturdy vest, super steel sheet, black cloth, and burrower carapace. Combine it with Juggernaut, specced hit and run, and some decent quality ninja tabis and you get a tanky mobile build that can stealth effectively against anything with lower detection than a greater coil spider.

There is a one high quality Burrower Carapace in Deep Caverns but it is way too late.
