    Default The Thrashball Drone fan club.

    I'm sorry if this thread breaks the rules in any way.

    Does anyone else think the Thrashball Drone is the best Locust character ever? I have every Locust but can't stop playing as this guy. Shame he can't stay.

    I forgot to check and select him last time I was playing. It would be nice because then we would have Cole's counterpart.

    While I don't think he is the best I do enjoy how silly he looks lol.

    I never use him though.

    Hopefully he will be included in a future DLC (if there is a next one). There is no reason why he won’t; the character skin is already made and available.

    I think the Savage Kantus is the best, but I do like the Thrashball drone. It's a cool character.

    They should just add Skorge, Cyclops and Thrashball Drone in a DLC together along with more maps and then everyone should be happy.

    I just dont understand the draw to these characters dressed in thrash ball gear for me it distracts from the game and the in world. I have always been against superstar cole, thrashball cole and now i believe thrashball drone is just about the dumbest one so far. I know everyone has their own opinion and thats fine but my opinion is that game companies make certain things, regardless of how silly and foolish they are generally unavailable to the public and because of that people want it even more. Bungie did it with recon armor in halo 3, it wasnt the coolest one but because it was exclusive people went out of their way trying to prove they deserved it. When the game first came out there were thrashball coles everywhere from people who had the beta, it was exclusive to them epic released him to the public now i see one out of every 5 lobbies, maybe. I agree there needs to be more locusts but thrashball drone makes about as much sense in this game as superstar cole. Im not trying to be an ass but this kind of stuff just screams money grubbing bs, getting everyone all excited and then taking it away and bringing it back for a price. Its no different than what mcdonalds does with the mcrib, its marketing at its finest.

    Savage Kantus is the best, but TD(get it?) is also awesome.

    I don’t really understand your point about Halo's Recon armour. The armour was exclusive to Bungie employees/lucky fans at launch and was then opened to the public if you got a set of achievements, not dissimilar to most of the unlockable Gears characters. Usually if people enjoy a game they will happily work towards a goal to unlock more content, whether it is a new skin for their gun or a new character to play as. It’s not marketing, its peoples desires to stand out from the crowd. DLC characters and skins, however, are used as marketing tools.

    I regards to characters looking silly, I'd say look at Gow itself. The game doesn’t take itself seriously, with Easter eggs on most multiplayer maps and hilarious gun skins available. Superstar/Thrashball Cole isn’t silly at all, its how he looked before the war. Thrashball Drone is a bit silly but he’s meant to be.

    Don't take the game too seriously.

    Its not taking it to serious, the game is a certain way and the characters have always reflected that. They may look silly compared to other games but inside the world of gears they fit the role this thread asked for opinions I gave mine and said I respected other peoples opinion I at no time talked bad or down to anyone I used recon from halo as an example it was not meant to be a direct comparison. The op should have listed a disclaimer saying this is a thread for the goofy crap that makes no sense fans of the game.

    He should replace Drone* when you enter a match on the Locust side.

    Really? Ignorant comment of the week.

    We should have a thread for these sort of awards. It is a game, are you going to complain about footballers/soccer players wearing snoods now?

    I do like Team Metal on either side though. Ivory Gnasher + Team Metal Lancer FTW! Looks awesome with Classic Cole and SGE.

    I must say, the best Lancer skin ever is Liquid Metal.

    Glad you don't use the Ivory Lancer, that thing is a Chrome Lancer rip-off...

    I'm going to give you some advice free of charge...posts like this will severly limit your lifespan here. This isn't the first time I've seen you insult someone or troll a thread. Enough.

    I love using him and Thrashball Cole. And he is the only Locust which actually looks red. Like a very bright red.
