Weapon Requests !!

@thehappybub

Yeah, I played some dark souls lately, I find finishing moves very satisfying - and as you say it would have to be quick as getting locked in to animations for too long could be devastating, but a quick animation should do just fine, as the times you go for a knife kill is normally in situations where the enemy is prone sniping or on a completely different planet.

Apart from everything, I believe an HK416 should be prioritized.

You got security forces kitted and decked out with fast helmets, aor camo, lbt plate carriers yet they're still rocking older m4a1's with triangular front sight posts. Some modernity would be nice. But I highly like how it doesn't go overboard with too much weapons like BF3/BF4 does. No use for guns like a deagle, ACR's to be in game when they're not being used in service.

  1. MG3, this MG would be so crazy cool to have in this game 🙂 so please
  2. M60 E6. lovly weapon
  3. Sig Sauer P320
  4. Revolver of some sort 🙂
  5. Barret caliber 12 sniper
  6. MP 5
  7. HK 21 would also be nice.
  1. Confirmed post-launch.
  2. I think the M240B is coming instead of the M60.
  3. Would be cool, but the game has a P226 already.
  4. I feel like Sandstorm needs another Model 10 lol.
  5. Not exactly sure how it would be balanced, although a game mode revolving around it could be interesting.
  6. Both the MP5A2 and the MP5A5 are confirmed post-launch. Not sure about the MP5k.
  7. Don't know about that one lol.

Weapons I'd like to see added:

  1. Steyr AUG
  2. Bushmaster/Remington ACR
  3. UMP
  4. Vector
  5. Desert Eagle

Skins would be cool as well. Of course, they should not be as freaky as in CSGO. Maybe just different colors and camouflage.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands had some pretty nice skins styles.

  1. Would be pretty interesting. Might balance out the L85A2 although I'd love to see a TAVOR, personally.
  2. Cool weapon lol.
  3. Game could definitely use some more SMGs. It was in Ins2014 at least.
  4. I don't exactly know how this weapon could possibly be balanced so it's not OP as fuck.
  5. Mikee's confirmed that he doesn't want the Deagle in Sandstorm lol.

Weapon skins could be another dope cosmetic option.

@grumf said in Weapon Requests !!:

@benny Yeah, but i'd rather see a good 357 magnum revolver for that :p

Actually, a .357 would be badass to see in-game.

Weapons I'd like to see added:

  • M18A1 Claymore -> proximity detection (fuck this emoji)

good for perimeter defense

I actually thought about a specialist bot in Coop when playing against the Security team that can place down claymores at chokepoints.

@SandMartin That's a lot of guns. IMO, I'd like to see the TT-33, double-barrel shotgun, VSS or ASVAL. Those would be cool to see in-game.

@pacalis said in Weapon Requests !!:

Just a deadlier melee weapon like a ohk knife of some sort... An axe would suffice as well - Could be expensive in points, no worries, just fun to have the option.

A melee kill animation would be epic.

Like the Day of Infamy Hatchet but actually a one-hit kill weapon lol.

@JDMonster The RPK is actually a weapon in-game if you use the Debug Menu in Local Play, Has a model, sounds and animations.

@BGOD42 A HK416 seems somewhat redundant when there are already multiple other AR-style weapons in-game, but it might be an interesting alternative for the Mk 18 for the Security Advisor. The Alpha AK is a modernized AKM, after all.

@sandmartin "Gold desert eagle". What is this ? Call of Duty ? Lol ! Why not dual wield while we're at it ?

@bgod42 said in Weapon Requests !!:

Apart from everything, I believe an HK416 should be prioritized.

Why? It would be nothing but a cosmetic change from the M-4A1 or Mk.18. Shotguns, SMGs, and LMGs, which only have a single option per side, need to be prioritized above all else. The last thing we need is another assault rifle.

Vector. I don't exactly know how this weapon could possibly be balanced so it's not OP as fuck.

Low magazine capacity, poor armor penetration, and short range. It would be something unique and different, especially if they were able to model its recoil characteristics well. I'm not sure if it's really in common use, but it's a cool SMG.
