CIS Light walker concept

Since DICE now finaly adding AAT counter for the Republic, in the future, i'd like that in the same way CIS will get their own AT-RT like vehicle, and oh boy, there are plenty to choose from:
Spider droid - mostly will be busy sniping and crawling around the map with meh speeds
Crab droid - maybe not as fast like RT, but move in any direction with the same speed, but having 2 recticels for each gun and pincers to just push away some clones
Tri-droid - tall, precise and will be a better pick, since RT is quite tall with glaring weakspot, so this one have too - the middle of the neck between blasters and walker platform, also promoting pin-point accuracy like RT.

    I love them too, having small critter running around and blasting clones, insighting primal fear in them is an amazing concept, but it doesnt realy in the same way might be interesting, if hi's pincers will turn out to be quite powerfull.
  • Crab Droid all the way, however they are pretty fast if you watch Episode 3 when they come in on Utapau

    100% would be down for a crab droid, the droideka was great fun and a great addition to the game, crab droids would be amazing aswell im sure. However i do think that the crab droid could be another droideka in the sense of the enforcer class rather than a vehicle, i cant imagine holding square and a droid jumping out of the crab droid😂. Im sure they could make this feel very unique, maybe the left ability could be an ability to climb up walls and attack from unexpected angles, this could really switch up the gameplay in the game. If they went for an infiltrator class instead, they could also the right ability as a pinsir attack. the middle would be some form of a scan ability. They would have a normal short-miduim range blaster aswell. But this should be pretty weak, make it the first troop to be heavily based on mainly being melee, two shot kill to any infantry with normal melee, one shot kill with the pinsir ability. Uses the climbing ability to apear out of nowhere and kill you. 

    This addition could be just as fun if not more than the droideka, then add clone commandos to infiltrator and clone flametroopers to enforcer to round it out.

    I definitely would like to play as these vehicles, they would be awesome and unique. Would also like to see the larger droid vehicles from Geonosis playable as well, the homing spider droid and hailfire droid.

    I wouldnt consider the crab droid a vehicle because no one pilots or drives it. But i guess it depends on how DICE would want to do it. Really hope it gets implemented.

    So as the vulture droids. They way they spawn in battlefront doesnt breack that immersion of being naturaly made killer of metal. tommytom64 said:

    Yes, although i though about macking A-DSD as pilotable artilary for CIS - it will have half of TE health, but when enters artilary mode, his front will be able to stand his ground very easily, leaving sides vulnerable and its back still will be extremly vulnerable, as in RC. Its already have couple more abbilities too - shockwave and scan and slam with tiny rockets.

    As for OG-9 Spider droid, well, yeah, i'm down with it too and A-DSD basicly. Both are quite amazing.
    For Homing Spider droid, we can have theese abbilities:
    Laser pules - pinpoint accurate, but not way too far reaching laser, perfect for taking out vehicle supports of TE-s
    Tactical Support - same as TE
    Heatsink - removes overheat from blaster dish for 15 seconds
  • Well technically,
    the CIS doesn't have true vehicles, indeed Crab droids and dwarf spider droids could be great to have as playable reinforcement, what is that tri-droid?
    If they are the ones from the Mygeeto scene, I'm afraid they are too tall to be a player fully controlled reinforcement.

    CIS Artillery could use of the Droid Gunship too.

    I am pretty hopeful that Dice will bring all logical element into the game faction wise and gameplay-wise without us having to hint at them, but I'm afraid again that if we ever don't see them coming before the end of the live service they will put the blame on us for not suggesting to add these contents.

    Any content is welcome contwnt in my eyes, as long as its unique and brings something special, yh i get what you mean by all droid vehicles being like that and i guess your right but equally crab droids side would make them fit as infantry easily. Other forms of unique gameplay would be great aswell.

    On Utapau there are small tri-droids, like the one shown in fan-made Mygeeto transmission for Battlefront 2
