Rollermine Rework (Burrowing) / Also reduce Jump height

All around good but I think a small buff to damage would help a lot too. Rollermines lose most 1v1 with almost any rebel as long as their decent with melee.

If I wanted to go up against a Diglett I would play Pokemon, not CvR. While I understand the want for more versatility to the roller-mine those points you listed are already made possible with the current version.

In response to Eclipsian: Rollermines don't though. As stated in the post there are very few areas where rollermines can actually burrow (I'm not a KILO but i'm going to take the DvL's word on this). If a rollermine takes up 1250 resources, over half of what a Jeep takes up on RES side (I do play Tech) with utterly incomparable effectiveness.

In comparison:
Jeep: Costs 2K Resources | Mid Ranged cooldown based HC gun. | Great against basic infantry and some vehicles | Terrible within 5M due to limited field of fire.
                       Rollermine: Costs 1250 Resources | Damages on contact | Combos with Grav Gun, not great on its own. | Hard countered by ENG/Scav/Tech, Killable easily with melee

Thus, +1. Hell I'd even say the rollermine could use a buff with vehicle damage.

Imagine not wanting this change to the rollermine.

+1 extremely well written, and a good idea.

+1 I agree with everything but the reducing of the jump hight.

Rollermines are already pretty good, not in damage or speed but it's a good distraction against rebels.

Let's say there's a rollermine in a rebel filled corridor then that rollermine will absolutely annoy rebels and force them to either A. Force them to retreat or B. Force them to run into the combines arms

+1 This is a response to head janitor, all it takes is for a scav or engi to grav it and yeet it way or let someone crowbar it.

+1 roller mines are borderline useless compare to say a jeep
