You mean like a turret?
It could be really fun, the the turred had to be activated by a player (1H last), for a very big credit amount? (10,000,000 credits maybe?)
With a defensive turret that would regen your hp/shield for a specific amount as soon as you are in the safe zone radius (maybe +50,000hp?), or an ofensive turret that would fire at the enemie dealing "x" damage times level of the player!
Sounds wicked, it would bring a greater homefield advantage
Avable on PvP maps for example. Really good idea I like it!
