    Yes they do... maybe play with the units first... they are all useful in one way or the other..

    I would prefer to see kixeye release faction units like in the current state of the game as I don't want to see kixeye get forced to release units of a specific type just for the reasoning that the faction hasn't get enough units in that category.

    On top of that, the Sharpshooter is also a great unit for the Survivors as the faction feels like the main infantry faction and the faction about camouflage. Corpus is more about advanced technology and the Sentinels is more about armor and pure power.

    Wouldn't the survivors be more of an elemental faction (as the liberator is the only survivor unit to not have any means of applying a status effect) and corpus being more cloaking due to its history (infiltraters, cyclones, night owls, SS drones, and more recently Cyclops and Spartans)

    Hello!To explain this silly matter,all of the gen III units don't need to be all air,it depends on what the faction needs.For Corpus,they needed a tanky air unit to elevate their air battles with the Blackout and Furys,for Sentinels,they required heavy atillery to destroy high priority targets to clear path for their units.As for the Survivors,they lack of ground supremacy while Corpus has Darkstorm and soon the Sentinels will have the Prophet.So,the Sharpshooter was invented to solve this problem.High damage and high range,a unit killer.Conclusion is any faction will have a new unit to match their current combat status.I hope this helps.

    Something that is also unique with the Survivors is that the most recent Survivor units (Technical, Breacher, Sharpshooter) has 2 different epic tech unlocked with the unit which allows us to specialize the unit a bit more for the combat situation. This is also a sign that the Survivors are a faction about customization and specialization for the units.

    A meat shield for air troops.Sphinx's purpose is to take heavy damage and protect other unit to deal the damage.

    but the program to run to the target make the micro harder for the players also i dont understand the purpose of running to the target as the phanlanx do it to deliver the spartan on the core and do more damage but why the sphinx do it?

    To the original posters credit, sure it ties Kixeye down to making sure the Factions are balanced, but isn't that a GOOD thing?
    I mean I am a Corpus Member, YES even after Shadow stabbed me in the back and said I could not user her faction in the boss base that ONE time.
    BUT even the Boss Lady HAS to know I HAD to use Malachi's slimely units, just now, and I am still taking a shower after using them.
    Their (Sentinels) lack of anti-air made the event far more challenging than it really needed to be.

    If Survivors really lack an air unit, than in an event or two, when we are FORCED to user Survivors and go I WISH I had a decent air unit (although the siege is pretty op)
    I for one am going to be glad to take my Shiney Sharpshooters in that air only base and really snipe the heck out of them.

    Corpus Forever!!

    yes, it is a unit unit, an it flies which makes it an air unit, so no the bonesaw it not the only air unit for the survivors unless the siege gets remove from the game,

    I agree Survivors are short on Air Units but they do have Siege Squad.  The biggest imbalance for factions imo is Sentinels having no long range infantry for bunkers.

    not only that but they are the only one of the 3 where you cant spawn a horde of little units from one big one

    Sphinx is one of the helicopters belonging to the Corpus faction and it's designed around being heavily armored based on my knowledge about the unit.

    The Sphinx is also the only airborne unit in the game that can also absorb up to 50% of the damage that nearby units takes if the Sphinx has the gold tech equipped. On the other hand, it's important to note that 1 of the gold components causes the unit to absorb damage from nearby airborne unirs while the other does the same thing but to ground based units.
