Looking forward to using some new weapons with WoM coming up. What weapons would you like see after this expansion? Some future Weapons think could maybe be interesting to have in the game. (Probably some have been mentioned before, but not explained how would work ingame)
Slayer [Bareknuckle fightning/Iron knuckles] :
Have you ever wanted to uppercut your way through the End Times?
All the Different attacks the “weapon” would have:
Block + Push (holding block+atck after) :
This would be the weapons trademark move, the uppercut would be its most unique mechanic making it different from other weapons quess. It wouldnt do alot of DMG, but it comes out fast and stuns the enemy for a short duration after landing. (This attack would be most powerfull against a lone elite or similar, think 1v1 fight/boxing)
Would be a precision attack where the hitbox is : Stormvermin,chaos warriors lower head part (their chin ofcourse) If you land a sucessful uppercut your next two light attack or heavies does increased DMG or added Crit DMG. Like rewarding the player for good precision under pressure.
This would ofcourse have that oldschool “irish” block stance where your holding your hand up infront of you. Not sure about how many shields it would have. Talking mayweather defense skills or a more sloppy drunk dwarfen fighter in a pub brawl having less shields similar too double axses?
Light attacks : (regular attacks)
Right hand > left hand > right hand > left hand… think regular boxing animation just in first person.
Similar dmg as double axses maybe? decent against hordes?
Heavy attacks :
Not quite sure about this one, but an example
This one would like have some kind of “mini game” attached to it, like using blocks between a few attacks. Could be like a small buff to cleave or stagger or attackspeed if you mix in blocks in your attack pattern against a horde. Just to not make it too similar at doing the job against crowds as 2 handed weapons?
This blocks would maybe have to be close to a perfect “parry block” like the trait we have in the game today to be able to keep the flow and the buff on heavy attacks?
Wide punches, alot slower, less cleave then the heavy 2 handed weapons we have now.
What would make the weapon unique from others?
Ofcourse the uppercut mentioned first (being a precision weapon rewarding the player with added DMG when landing perfect punches)
Maybe also does less dmg also too horde if not landing head attacks, similar like saltsspyre rapier? (both light and heavies making it a precision weapon)
Somehow adding some kind of : rewarding the player for good postioning (think of good footwork in boxing)
Heavy attack somehow tied to block? giving you a small buff to cleave or similar if your able to mix up your heavies and perfectblocks after a few attacks?
Ironbreaker : [Explosive charges, “sticky bombs”]
Do you just want to blow stuff up?
This one would be good for disrupting hordes,monsters packed togheter and slowing down Monsters and Bosses. Could see some fun tactics being used here in some scenarios. If also ironbreaker would have his Dawi Warhorn mentioned later in this post: Your team are fighting a Monster close to a cliff or ledge? You could plan ahead and lay down some explosive charges in a line closer and closer too the ledge and use his warhorn too aggro the monster to come over too you. When the monster is running over the charges ironbreaker sets them off one by one making the monster fall off the cliff.
Good for disrupting
Good for patrols?
Can be fun too use if you plan ahead where the enemies,specials,monsters are gonna come
Can stick to objects and enemies, for detonation at the perfect timing?
You can finally put a sticky on wutelgi and send her in as a kamikazi into the horde? no more listening to lumberfoots again…
Has a long cooldown after you used them too not make them OP?
You have only 3 - 5 max charges you can use at a time?
You no longer have any longrange sniping for specials and blightstromers in particular
Can DMG teammates if your not carefull
Ever wanted to be a whale catcher in a game or your mom read you bed times stories about Moby Di*k?
Trollhammer torpedo would have two versions you can make of it.
One version firing big missiles,harpoons and the other version would be same but with a chain attached to the harpoon. This on would be specialized for keeping monsters and bosses at bay.
Your 100 hp kerilllian on team is being chased down by a chaos spawn? No worries! Whale catcher ironbreak is here! Loads up a harpoon and fires at the chaos spawn in his butt making the monster attached to the chain for a duration, slowing him down and doing some decent dmg.
Trollhammer Harpoon “chain version”
Does Heavy DMG to large enemies (monsters)
Also effective against a lone Chaos warrior.
Dont use ammo.
Can pin monsters,bosses in one spot or slow them down for a duration.
Has decent range before it falls to the ground.
Not effective against hordes.
Specialized for large enemies mostly.
Can kill alot of slave rats but only if your lucky with a shot where they are standning in one line or corridor, has a small hitbox but high penetration.
Has a cooldown after every shot since very powerfull under certain scenarios.
Trollhammer torpedo (regular harpoons,missils)
Able to shoot several shot alot faster then the other version.
Has the same DMG values as the other ver. good against monster and single elites.
Low ammo count?
More decent against horde somehow but as the other ones its not specialized and recomended using up the ammo against hordes.
Ranger Veteran [Traps, similar like a bear trap]
A very angry patrol or a ratogre is chasing your butt? lets put down 3 - 5 traps locking them in place for a few seconds. And while they are stuck in their traps lets throw some of them favourite duped bombs of yours.
Worthy mentions :
Dawi Warhorn Ironbreaker
This one would be more of an utilty for the team then a weapon itself. Gaining aggro nearby a horde,monster and elites to save another team member in problems.
Think of like Borimir using the horn in Lord of the Rings right before (spoiler) when they are fighting the uruk hais to save the others.
Watch short clip to get a better understanding :
It would both look and sound badass ingame if they added something like that. Giving ironbreaker probably with the most boring Special,“Ult” in the game.
Hint. “Weapon special” the one button that is used only on saltspyre today… insert warhorn here…
Also the rest of the team would gain a team buff from hearing the warhorn for 10 seconds maybe?
Ironbreaker & Ranger [New handgun version]
Do you ever wondered if that chaos warrior has brushed his teeth today, or if that stormvermin is using dandruff shampo on his pelt?
Simply able to put a scope on your Rifle/Handgun^^
Drakegun [Steam version]
Simple idea about having the drakgun we allready have in the game having two versions.
Regular dragegun fire and new drakegun steam version. Each pecialized for two different threaths.
just to give you an idea: https://totalwarwarhammer.gamepedia.com/The_Skolder_Guard_(Irondrakes)
This on not very likely to happen at all, but added it anyway:
As Ranger veteran usually are the only dwarfs spending most of their time outside their holds for long periods and living of the wild and the animals before he joined ubersreik.
Giving ranger veteran an owl or eagle buddy, where you could send him infront spotting out dangers and loot. You being pinned down by an assissin or hookrat? Your owl,eagle buddy dives down from the skies giving you a second chance.
+ + Some possible future cosmetics suggestions for all three classes to Bardin:
We allready have glowy weapons (too many of them) But one thing that would actually be cool are rune infused tattoos glowing on the slayer.
Has probably the most cool ideas for cosmetics of all the heroes in the game, but leave it with
Ranger Veteran :
Since he was living of the wild like a hunter kind of before he joined the ubersreik 5 as a ranger for his clan:
Animal pelt? Slain Animal head? hunter style lots off survival accessories on him
What you think? are any of this weapons mentioned above something fun and interesting would like see come in the future or not? Or some other weapon suggestions/ideas for our other Heroes?
