SPARK Pugilist Class (WOTC)

Newly updated for War Of The Chosen, Pugilist is a SPARK class that punches things. It has 10 new perks to facilitate that. Most of them involve punching! This class requires -bg-'s SPARK Custom Class Support mod. Without it you'll never be able to get your hands on one of these.

THIS VERSION IS FOR WOTC ONLY! There's another version already available for the base game.

Left Hook: The vanilla Strike perk, but with no cooldown and 10% more accurate.

Gut Shot: A strike that deals 3/4ths damage, but stuns the target for 2 action points.

Haymaker: A less accurate strike (+0 instead of +30) that deals 50% more damage.

Burning Finger: All your melee attacks light their targets on fire (1-3 burning damage).

EM Punch: All your melee attacks deal +3 damage to robotic units (applied before the damage modifier for the Asp. perks).

Jab: A strike that refunds you an action point afterwards.

Flurry: Bladestorm except with your fists.

Float: On killing an enemy with a strike you gain +5 mobility for 2 turns. The duration refreshes on each kill.

Sting: Your strikes ignore all of your target's armor.

Implacable: As vanilla.

Untouchable: As vanilla.

Hidden Dragon: A strike that, if it kills an enemy, puts you in concealment. It also makes you undetectable (mostly) until the next player turn.

Crouching Tiger: A strike that deals +1 damage for every two tiles between you and your target.

Mods that change the default SPARK Strike won't have any impact on the Pugilist's many punches.

In order to make Flurry behave I had to set every Bit to have a range of 0. As far as I can tell this doesn't impact anything, but it's worth noting.

There is optional compatibility with RealityMachina's Metal Over Flesh mod's Berserker Gauntlet upgrade. To enable it set "bUpgradeCompat" to true in XComPugilistClass.ini.

There is an optional setting to add more knockback and environment damage to the Pugilist's punches on par with -bg-'s Bigger SPARK Punches mod. To enable it set "bBiggerPunches" to true in XComPugilistClass.ini. The ini also defines which abilities are impacted, so you can remove specific abilities if you only want some to be affected.

Thanks go to xylthixlm for XModBase (which this uses) and the icon pack that all the new perk icons come from.

Thanks to Long War Studios for the code for Fleche.

Thanks to -bg- for giving me the ability to make SPARK classes (and letting me use the code from Bigger SPARK Punches).

Thanks to Grimy because I totally stole the idea for Jab from his Headhunter class.

This has been minimally tested and I haven't even actually played the expansion as of this writing. Let me know if anything is weird.

Might need to be recompiled maybe. Busy right now so I probably won't be able to check it for a bit.

Anyone else having issues with this class not being selectable after the TLP update? I can't imagine it changed much affecting this so it may be my heavily modded game, but if anyone else is having similar issuse it might mean the mod needs an update. Started a new game, then another with all the WOTC specific mods related to this and sparks but no luck so far.

Really missed the "mech tyson" pun opportunity here.

Because of course you built a giant robot that specializes in punching things.

do I individually create this in the proving grounds? or do they upgrade from existing sparks?

Punchbot is reliably crashing the game when using a Shredder cannon.

I don't have a detailed understanding of how the Custom Class Support mod works, you'd be better off asking -bg- about this instead of me.
