My version of an elcor reaper enemy. The game says normal elcor strap VI controlled guns onto their backs for combat purposes so this is just exploring that concept further.

Reminds me an awful lot of the Huskified!Rachni in design... But damn if it isn't awesome

If I saw that on the battlefield, I would probably run the other way...

Looks like a mobile cannon, I love it. :D Reaper harvesting is so damn cruel, look what they do.

Only a true monster would harm a Elcor!

Behemoth:
The Behemoth is a Reaper creation,formed from an Elcor. Like Ravagers,Behemoths are artillery units,designed to thin out crowds and pierce defenses. However,instead of twin launchers,a Behemoth has a single large mass accelerator cannon attached to its back that fires off an extremely powerful round that can decimate even heavy vehicles such as a Mako tank. Unlike the species they are created from,Behemoths aren't afraid to get in close to their enemies,raising their upper body to a degree almost never seen in regular Elcor in order to slam their forearms onto the opposition below.

Why not call it a tank?
CutiePie87's avatar
Tank just seams too obvious.. plus Behemoth sounds more like something you'd call a Reaper force
CutiePie87's avatar
The Reaper forces usually have names that sound.... powerful, a Behemoth sounds way more badass than Tank

Would've made more sense than the Rachni. Maybe even as a chance for variety; if you killed the Rachni in Mass Effect, the Reapers don't pull something out their asses to resurrect them but are instead forced to use these; bigger, more powerful, but way less mobile and common. If you did, the Elcor are shunted to heavier battlefields, given an in-game buff, and only rarely seen by Shepard him/herself.

Or, since I actually hate the Rachni being used as artillery to begin with, why not have only Elcor artillery and keep the Rachni as a mechanized version of their Mass Effect role; big, kinda fast and terrifying Melee units. Add some reduced health and force them to go into a compacted, less lethal form for tight spaces and they'd be an excellent, if perhaps situational enemy which, again, could be taken out and compensated for if people decided to kill the species off. No Rachni to convert? Not a problem; throw a swarm of husks at the player.

Mindlessly: Aaah.

I love the incorporation of the aesthetics from the Ravager and the Scion. Y'all thought they where bad when they had two legs? Now they can run like gorillas and punch through ship hulls! God I wanted to see these things in the game. SOMETHING to do with other races reaper-ized, than just 5 races.

not sure if that gun or that mouth is more frightening
