1 or 2 suggestions (Even tho i havent played i dont know if this would be an improvment or not)
If shot by handgun from the face the patient looses a small amount of health
If a medic injects it off the face the patient looses 0 health?
If you shotgun/pulse rifle it off someones face the patient barely lives (Weapon switching costs valuable seconds)
Upon removing the facehugger, it still impairs vision (makes it blurry for 15 or 20 secs making it difficult to aim)
Some trickery in taking care of face huggers could give some edge to aliens
The venom spitter could also have a visual attack, blurring vision
With smart guns and turrets etc, this could be the ticket no? taking a few players sight away for 20 secs could really give time for the aliens to move in closer and cause a panic "get the hell out" situation
The aliens can only do well in places where its hard to see, which is why dark maps are a place to do fair battle against such an armoury
I love the fact then when a face hugger attaches itself its blocks your sight to.
