    Briha will eventually be available to make you some good old school rooty tooty point and shooties when i finally figure out how to write weapons for the game, but I would like to know what others would like to have to help flesh out the roster of guns she'll be able to provide. the only restrictions are that the guns be from ww1 and onwards, and that modern guns be unique or iconic

    Honestly? ...and please forgive me for being cliche:
    The LAPD 2019 Blaster Detective Special from Bladerunner

    400px-Museum_stunt.jpg

    and

    the DL-44 heavy blaster pistol from Star Wars

    DL-44_Blaster_Pistol_DICE.png

    That way you can dual wield and cosplay as Deckard and Han-solo at the same time.

    1. Liberator shottie, it's not a ww1 gun but a nam gun, but I feel like you could still have it because it's just like a blunderbuss or a really powerful shotgun, It's a shotgun with four barrels that would use cartiage packs to load into it, if you want to see a pic I would be happy to show one.

    2. The Lewis LMG, it was one of the most commonly used larger machine guns in the war on Belgium, personally I feel the game could use another LMG that could be gotten easily than the one from Kara's quest, just throw some dirt on it and name it something like the Jenny gun and bam you got another weapon.

    3. Luxtion arsoual gas, it's already in the game have her sell some.

    4. The Kolibri 2mm, either as a joke weapon or a weapon that does mad criticals for a smuggler, the Kolibri is a gun that could fit in the palm of a person's hand and fires tiny 2mm bullets.

    5. Maybe a colt 45 or an oversized revolver that fires just crazy big bullets or maybe another flamethrower that's better than Kattom's mk2 flamethrower

    6. I'd suggest a mortar but I don't think you can get that crazy with the weapons, how about a Mosin nagant sniper?

    7. If we ain't got Bayonets throw them in, right with the trench clubs

    8. molotovs, grenades, sticky grenades, dynamite or something like it.

    9. Maybe some partially damaged Flack jackets to sell for protection

    10. M18 automatic, one of the guns I just remembered it's an automatic rifle with big drum attacthed to it

    11. Gas mask, just in case someone tries to gas you

    i don't know if that would really fit since she's making 'old' guns but i'll consider it since it's possible that it could have popped up before the creation of the ugc and the establishment of Terra in place of earth

    ha a dl-44 that shit's illegal in 12 systems

    1. we already have the 'double barrel' trench shottie, but we could do with an upgrade
    2. i was gonna include the maxim as it and the lewis are both close to what we've already seen on Myrellion
    3&8. possible but i don't know if those should be more or less included in anno's shop
    4. no, as fun as it is in bf1 it won't really be cool in text since the novelty of it is that it's a tiny tiny gun
    5. magnum research BFR in 45-70 dressed up as ranger sequoia from fnv was gonna make its way in
    6. nagant is totally doable
    7. sure why not
    9&11. i may eventually do clothing after the gunsmithing but it'll be later and probably not briha
    10. you got a link the only think i get when i search an m18 is a drill XD

    i'd honestly just like more melee weapons, it feels like they're lacking in comparison to ranged

    an upgraded warden shield
    more melee weapons, a particular favorite of mine are the hammers
    a greatsword weapon, maybe of the energy variety.
    obviously some light sabers
    an alternative to the shock gauntlets that are just normal gauntlets so i can be unarmed without electricity.

    sorry bud i'm more or less trying to focus on oldschool/current real world weaponry, since it's an ant girl from ww1/2 era planet that's going to be making them, but i could add some good old fashioned brass knucks if you really want to beat the shit outta someone

    My bad it's the MP18
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MP_18

    Also we need more shotguns in the galaxy, maybe throw some fire shells with the double barrel, or was it a pump action since the Trench gun is suppose to be a single barrel.

    maybe give'em a Sten too it's another smg from ww1

    if it doesn't seem stupid or too much the rifle grenade? it was like a grenade attacked to the front barrel of a rifle, but make it similar to a impact grenade.

    Hmm more melee weapons would make sense because of the myr's eyesight problem actually, but they would need something to aid in trench combat and a great sword wouldn't really help them as cool as it would seem, maybe a scrap great sword that was made in Briha's spare time when she wasn't thinking about what she was making and only being able to be used by people with high strength.

    and Trenched knives.

    i could do an smg that could fit for the type 100, mp18, and sten since there isn't many smgs similar to it.
    i figured the bayonet would have a trench knife variant, as for the rifle grenade what about an m79.
    as for shotguns i was thinking of possibly the spas 12 or the 1897 winchester with 12ga frag or dragon's breath.
    as for the greatsword, meh. i love to use them in rpgs and stuff but i don't think it fits here, maybe on uveto or with the nyrean but not the myr

    damn didn't know the Itailans had Spas12s in the war, must've been shit for anyone attacking them, jk.

    I thought this was mostly like ww1 weapons? If not that then I would suggest watching some Forgotten weapons on youtube, you'll find alot of weapons you might want to add in.

    read my first post with the question and it'll make a bit more sense XD. and yeah i watch forgotten weapons, but more or less i'm asking if the vocal majority has a specific set of weapons they'd like to see, i know a handful of people have stated they'd love a thompson smg

    Well I would say have like the Thompson and the Mp18 or the Sten, only 2 with very different stats to them then maybe add another to the duo because you don't want to have like 4 smgs and have them all do the same amount of damage and other small side stats.

    I would say maybe add the Space gun, the Ljutic space gun is a trap shooting rifle and comes in shotgun variant that was made for trap shooting, it fires like .308 12 ga and 30.30 with a couple other calibers but it can also come in the single shot variant, also on forgotten weapons.

    But I would say Think about Briha the character and how she's getting these items or why she's selling them, I hate to sound like that guy, but there would be alot of work to this and might be a bit tough, but maybe like give her a shop or make her have more stuff over time if she's gonna be like Kattom for Myrellion. Also maybe just look at the weapons on myrellion right now and just see what could or should be added.

    i'm writting an xpac for her and lys which explains both of these things and i plan to add the gunsmithing 'shop' after that xpac, mainly my desire for this comes from my disappointment of kattom's shop also it allows me to create unique weapons for people on the forum and hell it may eventually work it's way into being a handfull of guns that you can upgrade as you level up towards the cap

    also that space gun is funky looking as hell XD also i did plan on the thompson and the sten/mp18/type100 being different in their roles

    I don't use guns as much as possible. I have a little experience with a couple pistols and rifles, but melee and archery is where it's at, partially due to real-world experience with martial arts and archery.

    However, I do think the repeater rifle and coach gun on the new Overwatch character are cool. I tend to like SMGs in games where shooting is necessary.

    Really though, now that I have the Shock Gear all I could want is a better Shock Bow. My friends would appreciate throwing knives as a ranged weapon for a Smuggler and a big ass sword as a melee weapon for a Merc.

    A Colt M-16A1
    An Mp40
    An assault rifle of some kind
    AK-47?
    Dragunov Sniper Rifle?

    Not an old weapon but...
    Some sort of retro looking ray gun?

    BFG 9000 from Doom 3. "Charge" weaponry can be interesting.

    uhh dude first post, ww1 to onwards, I don't think we used bfg 9000s in ww1 or 2 or nam or the cold war.

    I think, I think the name of this thread needs to be more fleshed out or less vague about what is being asked for.

    Writing weapons is more or less like writing any other piece of equipment. What you need are a long name, a shortened version of the name ( for the tooltip, 12 char limit), a short description (vary brief, like within a half-dozen words), a longer description for the tooltip (50-100 words), and a verb and noun for attacking (i.e. shoot, bullet).

    I'm pretty sure we wouldn't need a space ant version of a gun that I want to believe is STILL being used in the space future of TiTS.

    Maybe some sort of chemical thrower instead of a flamethrower.
    Add a couple of variants - like one that uses a modded fuel tank containing synthetic Red-Myr venom for lust based damage (maybe its only available after you unlock the Myr transformative).

    So there is. Still, a chemical thrower could still be a viable weapon.

    I don't think he does, he sells like a cryo thrower a flame thrower mark 1 and 2 but that's about it on the Throwers.

    Okay @Evil so how would formatting a weapon look like cause from what you've explained I see it like this;

    Heckler & Koch 417
    H&K 417
    An old Terran designed military battle rifle
    The H&K 417 battle rifle was primarily used as a DMR during its record of service. Although capable of being used in close quarters it's effectiveness was limited due to the rifle's propensity to overpenetrate without the use of expanding ammunition, which was outlawed for use in military conflicts at the time. Briha has outfitted yours with a holo screen dot sight capable of switching between thermal imaging, night vision, and a 'normal' mode.
    Shoot, bullet.

    hmmm maybe shorten it for a quick description. Like a powerful rifle with a long service record, Briha has outfitted this one with a holo screen dot sight with several vision modes. unless you want a long description.

    @Violent_Peace

    my question is more or less about formating since writing them isn't an issue so much as formating is, and i can't really find an example
