There is a reason we aren’t getting new weapons despite the fact that datamines have shown complete models and more for new weapons. It’s likely we will get the first weapon pack dlc next year with mostly fan favourites that we as a community have been asking for months now and they are listening not to increase the roster of the base game weapons for some renewed life in game, no instead they are listening to see what they can make the most money on like they did with the rogue trader and krieg outfits which were much requested fan favourites that they knew they could get away with premium prices.
Ultimately what I am saying is don’t expect much more big free content that is meaningful and expect some real scummy stuff next year.
Not for fatshark if you prove me wrong I will apologise but for now I see you as greedy scum.
I’ll be blunt, I’m not sure the Meltagun is really appropriate to Darktide, and that may be part of the issue.
Meltas are extremely short ranged heavy anti-tank weapons. They’re clumsy and awkward.
As is, nothing in this game involves hunting tanks or even proper monstrous creatures. The Rejects aren’t ambushing armored convoys and cracking Leman Russ tanks or fighting Daemon Engines. The biggest foes we have are enemies tabletop 40k considers large infantry (Spawn, Plague/armored Ogryn, Chaos Champions), none of which are units that Meltaguns historically are particularly efficient at dealing with relative to weapons we already have in the game. I’m not sure a properly representative Meltagun would really be fun or useful in the context of the conflict the game presents, though I guess we’ll see what happens.
they said Maps were Free content but i am going to go out on a limb and say that Classes and weapons are going to be payed as this games Price is High for what it has and it was even higher for the Pre-orders. i do think they will Paywall Classes and weapons since people are actively not using the Currency Shop due to the prices for Cosmetics and also the Xbox Debacle. also the number of refunds and lost of player count on the steam i would say theirs maybe another 8k worth of players across game-pass and Xbox. so 20k all up call it 1/5 of all players are buying cosmetics once a week that like with 54k USD a week, while yes it respectable it doubt it is enough to please the sharehold who is what FS legal and Moral obligation is. even if it only 25USD for a new class and all the weapons for them so long as they throw in a neat Skin most people will buy the DLC packet. on the other if you want to increase the number of players using MTX start selling’s the Regimental skins such as Eyslian Drop troopers, Mordian Ironguard, Vostryan, Vahallan, Tempestus scion (give that a Branch in veteran),Karskin, Red Skunks, War hawks, Talleran Desert Raiders, Voploane, Roane Deepers.
Even tho right one looks like hellgun - i highly doubt we will get any heavy weaponry. Because heavy weapons require a backpack with ammunition.
And we already have cosmetic backpacks. Which are complete waste of space and money.
So it’s more likely a heavy caliber sniper rifle.
There is, indeed, meltagun. A psyker sword that we already have. And new Chain Axe that was added in recent updates.
There also power mallets for ogryn. Boltpistol. Another variant of plasmagun. New force/powerswords.
Pyroblast staff for psyker…thug shot for Ogryn, his other 2 grenade gauntlets…I’m about at my wits end for these barely dolled up additions to the bloated weapon list. I guess I’d take another catachan dagger, since its always going to be the best weapon in the game even if one is better than another.
But deliver the 2H chain axe, where is the Sturmdrang. And whatever Ogryn’s 2H ugly beater bar is supposed to be. Add it.
I super strongly disagree with this. First of all Melta guns are and always have been Assault 1. Meaning they can be easily fired on the move. Second they are and always have been excellent choices for firing into heavily armored high toughness high wound infantry like Crushers, leaving alone their value against Chaos Spawn and Plague Ogryn or Beasts of Nurgle.
