"Halt Catch Fire" / "ip0 on fire" virus

Post by Soundwave2005 » Fri Jul 12, 2019 2:48 am

It would be wonderful if you added an additional virus that causes a random enemy subsystem to catch fire. It would be nice if it also temporarily shut down the subsystem and maybe even severely damaging it.

Alternatively, it could start a fire at a subsystem or computer screen and cause screens to explode. This could occur either once, like what happens when you are hit by a lightning turret, or cause them to randomly explode for a short set duration during which there could be a possibility of them causing additional fires.

You could call it the "Halt Catch Fire" or "ip0 on fire" in homage to the infamous real life error codes. It would be excellent as a rare virus only found in exotic shops or as a rare drop from a current or future boss. I just want to be able to tell my crewmates that "the enemy computers are LITERALLY melting!"
