i realise that this is not first topic. but still.
CLOSE COMBAT PISTOL? with timing of 1.23 per shot(you will get a hit in face) and hitting only 1 target.
while on veteran needs 3 HEADSHOTS to kill WEAKEST one.
excuse me but this is ludo-narrative dissonance.
This is pistol. its purpose to give ranged combat to player. OK lets imagine its being OP.
what prevents from making 2 kinds of rapier? 1st unlimited ammo,but with reduced dmg to specials at -50%, however at least its supposed to kill small vermins with 1 shot no matter how far. its pistol after all,how its different from 2 pistols?
2nd kind of rapier - incrased damage to specials by 25/50% but limited ammo, only 6 shots. DONE.
why do you give a purely cosmetical pistol on ICONIC weapon of witch hunter, for wich most people select exactly him? for stagger you’d say. Does player really needs to stagger special unit? or he can just quickswitch to ranged and kill it, or kill it in meele? so what this pistol does again?
Rapier. okay. pistol and rapier okay. but rapier and a puke maker isnt very role play helping. no matter how you use this pistol, it shows that its ineffective. again, how rapier is different from other meele weapons? yes, it got a pistol. pistol that does what? gives illusion of damage when you shoot. in close range? pointless,you got the BLADE. in far range? pointless, it deals no damage even to weakest ones. again, why do we got this pistol? it makes rapier different from other weapons. it should be gameplay-based when wielding rapier, if you dont want to use pistol,you can select any other meele weapon. or just use meele, but pistol makes it special. Combo of swordfight + gunfire makes it special.
Any player will do 2 things on saltzpyre. checkout the rapier(because omg it got pistol) and check double pistols because OMG IMA GUNSLINGER. but what happens next? he will shoot from both types of pistols and will have a question. why those kill stff,while this one is not? what if i want to play exactly with rapier and pistol as iconic witch hunter? no, i dont want to use falchion or other non iconic WH weapons.
CONFLICT of interest. why i even have WH/pistol rapier, if i can just have rapier and be the master swordfighter. oh, right i got a pistol, its part of my gameplay. BUT ATM IT IS NOT. it is frustrating to see.
