I love this game, it is wonderful!
But i think its lacking on the cool weapon department. Its all kind of the same ol’ same ol’.
and now the underpowered Knetic weapons.
I thought the EMP missles were a cool idea, and the knetic weapons seemed great until you realized all it does is a tiny little gun flash. you cant even see where it hits!
So really, i think this game needs more diversity of weapons.
Here are a few ideas;
Explosive area of affect, good against fighters and weak frigates.
I find this game, however gratuitous it is, lacks one gun that just does a MASSIVE explosion. This will solve that problem easily. This isnt going to be an overpowered weapon though, since there is no air in space nukes cannot reach their full explosion potential. basically, it doesent have to be a massive explosion that fills the screen white and kills everyone. Just a very large explosion is all.
A module that you can put on another weapon slot to make two weapon spots. Takes a lot of power and crew to even out the extreme advantage this gives.
When you just need something to punch through everything, this Monsterous gun launches explosive shells toward your foes. High armor damage and penetration, high hull damage, low shield damage and penatration.
Extremely close range gun, like a massive explosive balistic shotgun. For when you need that classic almost impratical hillbilly feel. 300 max range.
Same as the Decimator, but in laser form.
Like a tractor beam, but can only be used against frigates and cruisers. Cruiser weapon only. A high-density metal ‘rope’ flings over toward your enemy, and if it hits it magnetically latches itself onto it. Motors pull in the ship so close that you are at point blank firering range under shields. Great to be used with
Neither ship can break the grapple unless one of them dies.
Max 300 range.
And just as something that would be cool…
Nicknamed the “zombiafier” by the users, the device can only be used when you are grappled onto a ship. Your ship sacrifices itself to spread the infection, and takes the grappled ship with it. It becomes overrun by an organic virus that spreads with air, and anything organic. so once it gets inside the ship, it spreads like a wildfire, taking over the ship in seconds and spreads to the outside hull. Once this is complete, its only goal is to corrupt all other lifeforms, so it grapples onto other ships with vines, infecting them.
These infected have no favorites, they shall infect your own ships too if they get close enough.
This would make for fun games where frigates would latch onto you, infecting your ships as you scream ZOMBIES!!!
So, any other weapon ideas?
Complaints on me taking all the good ideas?
