So, since Gears 3, we’ve had the option to mantle kick enemies. It was refined in Gears 4. Now, we need to be able to hop over teammates. Too often do I try to escape, especially in Campaign and Horde, only to be blocked by a teammate.
Here’s what I’d like to see: If a teammate is taking cover, you mantle over them. Your character would try to mantle, and would instead use the teammate as a support weight as you do a longer mantle. Kinda like leapfrogging over them. If they’re standing in the way, you would try to mantle, and then try to wrap around them mid-mantle.
Neither of these maneuvers should interrupt what the teammate is doing. If anything, only their vision would be blocked for a bit as you get in their way.
Anyone think this idea has weight? Maybe it can be refined.
