Luckily, I was able to grow - literally getting a bigger model and beefing up Goliath's attacks and armor in addition to the ability upgrades. Let those scrappers come to me. Well, they did. The bastards tried to corner me with an ability called Arena, which raised a blue forcefield dome that Goliath couldn't move through. They trapped me in it, but I quickly rounded on the group, sprayed fire, charged, and made melee attacks like a crazy monster. I took out a few, but the medic rezzed them. Then I killed 'em again. Eventually, they ran off to regroup. I ate the corpses they left behind.
I am a monster.
