    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

I was thinking about faction reputations. I was thinking that it would make sense (and add a bit of depth) if the player occasionally got a hit squad sent out to kill them and their lance. The hit squad would be a level appropriate lance appearing in the same manner that OPFOR reinforcements or ambushers appear.

Instead of Darius popping up with a box saying "If I was staging an ambush, this is where I would do it" a different portrait appears and "Kill Team Commander" says something like "The Magistry has decreed you must die for your crimes" or something similarly sinister. It could turn a two skull mission into a four and a half skull mission in a heartbeat.

This is probably something that has already been implemented by somebody.

Hmmm... knowing what little I know about the contracts, I'm not sure if it would be possible to actually have that happen during a mission. It would, however, be possible to fire an event based on Loathed reputation (I think.) Maybe something that causes injuries, a loss of c-bills or mechbay/medbay capacity, or maybe even mech damage (not sure if that last one is possible.) There would need to be a useful choice for the player to make, but it could happen.

I think there is a mod that has the Bounty Hunter ambush you (B Extended or 3062 Advanced, not the Heavy Metal mini-campaign), although I cannot remember the specific trigger.
