Houserule that a properly adapted Power Armor will reduce falling damage, deal the falling damage to the victim instead.

 

As a human, you won't have enough weight to cause a shockwave though.

 

Unless you hit the ground with a Power field strong enough (maybe a thunder hammer?), in which case you could deal a portion of that damage in an area effect instead?

Seems like you're better off using a thunderhammer. If someone tried something like that in a game I ran I'd ensure they took almost as much damage as they person they slammed into.

 

Now if you wanted to booby trap a jetpack so that when someone else put it on it just shot them high up into the air and then slammed them down again I'd be all for it. But you'd need a new jetpack.

Invest in drop pods and raise your intelligence so that you an coordinate the pods slamming into the ground at the exact moment you want them to in order to disrupt your enemies.

 

Then have the drop pods explode because screw marvels of technology. You're rich.

A thunder hammer that makes shockwaves like this sounds like a fun piece of archeotech. 

 

Don't even boost the stats up that much, just give it the ability to make shockwaves like the original poster described. 

 

This has the side benefit of being much more plausible and survivable. 

 

This reminds me of the rules I once drew up for the one blood ravens relic from Dawn of War that allowed you to leave craters nearly everywhere. Open Ground? Crater. Ruin? Crater. Bunker? Crater. Vehicle? Crater. Marine? You guessed it, Crater.

It's an easy 3-step process.

  1. Stay in school
  2. Do your homework, especiall that math and science stuff
  3. After completing school, revisit this question

 

Why make it so complicated if you can google Newton's laws?

Action-Reaction is the law you're looking for.

That and read how many bionic upgrades Space Marines are fitted with (and how many die in the process) before becoming able to "Death from the skies"- attacks with jump packs.
