Hey this is all the people just finding out about firefall I suggest you guys head over to the firefall community forums to gain more information about the pets and the games. And well just to chill with fans and the devs :D

Someone can kill my pet?! I've suffered enough pet heartbreak in my life. I can't allow this.

My only hope is that the ammo is super expensive and that once used, you can't use regular people killing bullets for X amount of time, so I can mercilessly claim vengeance. Over and over again...

Jerks... Leave Mr. Wiggles alone!

It is not killing its despawning so you will still have it just not be able to spawn it for x amount of time atleast that is how I understood it

@Apakal You must protect your pets from the cruelty of the digital world. I hope they have emotes and can be annoying if people can shoot my pet or they have mini-games of pet combat.

sounds intresting, but wouldn't like somebody to just kill my pets.
is there any griefer protection from this?

@Psychotic Storm The grief protection is that you'd probably have to pay real money to temporarily disable someone's pet. I'd be okay with someone continually shooting my pet if I knew that they were paying the devs for the privilege.

Temporary disabled I am ok with kill as in pet is deleted from existence I am not.

of course the first is not really grief proof but less impacting, still I can see a feature be not in use because there is a bunch of griefers specifically targeting player pets, which is sad, although an extreme possibility.

It is phrased despawn so I would really doubt that it is going to litterally kill the persons pet. But if each bullet costs money I doubt griefer would adopt this practice as they wouldnt want to spend money. If there is a griefer who does I would definetly love the person trying to "grief" me because I would see it as 5 bucks per dead pet in the hands of the dev

Killing the pets is completely unacceptable. Seriously, what in the world are people thinking... Well pvp-type games, yes I can see where this would fall into that mindset...

i've heard they are going to add special effects to the different types of ammo you can use to kill/despawn the pets. Bullets that make them go Squish, or Burn, or maybe confetti pops out like Chuckasucka suggested.

Also, I'd like to see Red5 make a contest where they allow a player to designe a pet. Maybe do it once a quarter. Maybe even sell the oppertunity in thier cash store for that.

This is an awesome idea, as long as they stay out of PvP. I like the thought of legions of trolls running around with special pet-slaying ammo, slaughtering pets for fun, each shot supporting Red5.

I hope the pets remain Firefall-themed, though. Like a tiny Merch wearing a battleframe!

We must form PETVA(People for the Ethical Treatment of Virtual Animals)! But no seriously, I'd want to see how many times I could get my pet blown up in a day. I would name him Mr. Splodey :D
