If you could make your own in-game items, what would they be?
I've always contemplated on what things could make ingress more interesting, perhaps new items to add another element of game play.
Nothing too overpowered, though, obviously. So, what would you make? Here's one of my ideas:
Pros: Deals damage equivalent to 50 X8s set off at once, 75% chance to knock off common shields, 50% chance to knock off rare shields, 25% chance to knock off very rare shields, and a 5% chance to knock off extremely rare shields. Opposing players in the vicinity have a chance of their XMP pool being depleted depending on range of detonation.
Cons: The weapon as a 15-second timer upon dropping on the ground. The opposing team has a chance to "neutralize" the XMP Bomb by firing off bursters or attempting to ultra strike it. COMM generates an alert to all players within the blast radius.
