select an area of Enemy MWs. These MWs, needless to say, turn onto your team.
Obviously, this may not be too much of a good idea. So, it also turns some of them into viri, some to FWs and some to EWs. It also turns them into enemy team colours.


Aka a portable randomizer. Drop the FW/virii/EW effects and then it's a true subvert.

And yes, Conficker in the name of april 1st!

Rockbusta missile
CTS only. Launches a missile from one of your spawn points. If it hits a statue, the statue goes a splode. Does not affect other units.

Nightmare gas
Airstrike. causes targeted enemy MWs to panic (as if fleeing a grenade). Thye might also shoot each other.

Plague bomb
Airstrike. Infects an area with the plague.

EMP missile
See definition of missile in Rockbusta. Disables spawn points, rockets, hill zones, solar panels etc in the blast zone for a short time.

Translocator
Building. Allows you to teleport up to 50 MWs to a target location. Can only be used three times.

Holy icon
Places a rockhead statue. Units nearby fight harder and are stronger. NOT AFFECTED BY ROCKBUSTA.

Wyrmhole
Sucks nearby units to their death for 30 seconds. When the hole closes, any souls will be dropped on the ground.

Combat drugs
Gives selected MWs rage and hot feet. However, does not give shields. So, when this wears off, MWs under 75% health die.

Tripod mines
Places 3-6 (randomly chosen) tripods in a selected area. If a unit makes contact, fires at, or fires nearby a tripod, it explodes.

Corrupt
Allows you to select a crate. When opened, there is a 75% chance of it being something nasty.

Apocalypso device
Places a smaller version of the WMD. After 5-10 (undecided) seconds, it explodes and kills anything in the area (about the size of a meteor strike zone).

Dialup modem
Place over a unit of enemy MWs. That player loses control of his entire army for a few seconds.

Purge
Removes enemies in target area. Placement of this has the same limitations as turrets.

Personal Space
Destroys all friends and enemies in area around targetted MW of your own colour. Also destroys statues.

Template Error
Non-deployable
One team trades in use of crates and spawns for immunity to lasers and grenades. Lasts 30 seconds.

1) Champion:Turns the target MW into a champion,champions cause nearby units to shoot faster/stronger and have more health,they are bigger than an officer,emit a slight glow and have much more health.They can also lead troops.

2) Stealth team:The target MW's turn invisible and cannot be seen for X sec,they tempoarily reveal themselves if they attack (but don't attack unless ordered)

3) Battle Armour:Battle armour cannot carry as many MW's as normal armour but the MW's inside may fire out (though they cannot throw grenades).It is also tougher and slower than normal armour

Life Bomb: Collects souls as a harvester, with the same gaping hole in its nigh-invulnerability. Soul cap is 1000(?). When destroyed, it explodes with a power and blast radius proportional to its soul count (where 250(?) would equal a single nuke). It can damage rockets.

1) Reaper:Turns all souls in the area into Evilwinians and black Virii,the more souls consumed the more that appear.There is also a small chance of a dark forest or triffids appearing.

2) Incubator:Summons an Incubator that flies to nearby souls and drops eggs on them,the eggs then hatch into Virii of the side who owns it.It can be destroyed.

3) Artillery Turret:Places a turret that fires grenades in groups of 4 over a MASSIVE range.Can be ordered to bombard a specific area though it suffers from high inaccuracy.

4) Mystery bomb:Drops a bomb on the target area that will do one of the following:

Rage for all in the area
Shields for all in the area
Subversion for all in the area
Hot Feet for all in the area
Mini-Plauge outbreak
Mini-Infection outbreak
Spawn Eggs
Dark Forest
Magical Forest
Spawn Ant Nest
Explode
Turn into a crate
Become a randomiser
Spawn several MW's for a random team

5) Wrathful skies:All MW's begin to run around in terror,Formations lose some of their bonuses,Air strikes and Naphalm strikes both cannot be used,Engineers and Harvesters both hover low near the ground (The flying Virii are unaffected as they do not feel fear).While this power is active the skies are blood-red/pitch-black with possible lightning affects.

How 'bout when multiwinians open up a crate, you get the power to make a foggy mist in any area? Confusion would follow, and all of the Multiwinians in the area, and all multiwinians entering the area, stop firing. Instead of all the power-ups which kill, I was thinking more pacificistic . This would be excellent for sending in more troops to reinforce a crucial area that is weakly defended. I would like to see more power-ups that add more strategy to multiwinia besides them just destroying your opponent (which I know is the basis of MW, however, but would like to see more creative power-ups). Please, more creative power-ups!!!!

you mean carpet bombers? If so, in what way different to the existing air strikes?


also, decent spelling will get you a long way in these forums.

Leeroy Jenkins Simulation Device (LJSD): Causes all Multiwinians to charge to the nearest enemy Multiwinian uncontrollably and fire grenades/rockets only. Lasts 15 seconds. They all break off from doing their duties such as holding spawn points active, turrets, etc etc. If soul destroyers are near, Rocketwinians will go ballistic and fire them all over the air.

Ant Pheremones: All Multiwinians in the area will not be attacked by ants for the powerups duration.

Mine Drop: Same as airstrike but the bombers drop mines which explode with the power of a grenade if enemy Multiwinians go over it.Terminating one will make all the mines explode at once.

Oversea Reinforcements: An armour comes from the edge of the map* to the target location,deploys 100 Multiwinians and leaves.The Armour can be destroyed.
*Whichever edge the targeted area is closest to.

Air Support: Half a dozen aircraft (Flying Armour?) go to the target location and begin killing all hostile Multiwinians,while leaving friendly Multiwinians unharmed.

Beasttamer: Turns a Multiwinian into a Beasttamer,he can control all friendly Virii near him and pacify enemy virii (they won't attack your guys with him around).The Beasttamer cannot be attack by Virii or ants (Soul Destroyers will still attack)

Purification: All Dark forests and Triffids in the area catch fire,all Evilwinians and black Virii in the area die (Soul Destroyers are only wounded and ants are unaffected)

Orbital Beam: A laser beam comes down and strikes the target area.It has a very small area of effect but can be moved around for a few seconds.

Sentry guns: Place one control node and X sentry guns at the target locations.You control one turret for each Multiwinian manning the control node,destroying the node kills the guns and vice versa.The guns and the node have the same spawn rules as Engineers,Harvesters and Armour.It comes in gun,missile and flame versions (each sentry gun having 1/4 of the power of a turret of the same type)

I didn't think that subversion combined well with rage?
