Hello again, it’s Milk/Cheese with another concept. Thinking about predator movies gave me an idea.
It’s a weak alien with a really weak basic attack. However, it has a special ability.
The player can right click to cloak, becoming invisible and draining energy (reactivate to uncloak) While cloaked, the alien gains a large movespeed bonus. Attacking immediately uncloaks the alien and drains all energy, dealing bonus damage based on the energy drained and the victim’s current health. If the empowered attack kills a human, the alien immediately regains 100 Energy.
While cloaked, the alien is still visible on radar and if humans are close enough, alerts the closest human about its presence (through an indicator/audio cue)
Certain human structures may have the added ability to detect and reveal the alien while cloaked.
The concept will probably be a T1-T2 alien that loses effectiveness as the game goes on.
