Which ones would fail? Are the mechanics described possible with what the workshop provides? What other Halo weapons would you want me to research and attempt to implement into Overwatch? Lmk!

Overcharged Holding down primary fire for at least 2.5 s causes your next shot to deal higher dmg on health and significantly higher dmg on shields/barriers. These units will track foes that were in your crosshair at a maximum distance of 50 m. There is an additional damage radius of 2 m, and a 1.15 m EMP radius.

EMP Enemies damaged by an overcharged unit within the 1.15 m radius will be hacked and have their shield health disabled for 6 s. Mobilizes high speeding targets and disables deployables for 4 seconds.

Positives: High damage to shields/barriers/deployables, can immediately stop high speeding enemies, slight tracking capabilities and hack properties for overcharged units, disables shield health regeneration for a short period of time.
