There is a reoccurring pattern in children (and cats & dogs) that when given a gift inside of a box, many frequently are more interested in the box than the gift. Thus the idea of a treasure hunter mech. One that is interested in finding and opening boxes (i.e., chests), but not caring about what is inside (e.g., its all unimportant junk). Its the adventure that matters. So then the process of opening the chest is what gives them the reward, in this case random buffs.

Chest in Time: Fair point. Most likely there would be a shot clearing wave on leaving the chest.

Need for speed: Boss cheese, Still okay with it ;)

Radar  - Would be somewhat complicated to do.

SPEED - Given the universal hatred for the Limter Removal, this one will not be appreciated.

Hey, I like the Limiter Removal nowadays so it's not universal anymore. :P

My main problem with Need for Speed currently is that it seems to work too perfectly as a new mech game changing innate ability, so I'd rather not waste it on a perk. As a mech we could then offer perks that extend the duration or the effect and stuff. Berserker Mech or Beast Mech or something.

That's fine with me. Add it to the design spec (that we've not touched in X time units) for the [redacted]?

Yeah, definitely add it to the [redacted] along with the other [redacted] for the [redacted].
