Shehriazad Posted September 27, 2014 Share Posted September 27, 2014 (edited) Hello there Tenno, sometimes I feel like the gun combat is a bit dull at times...and while weapons with very cool mechanisms exist, many of the more standard-esque weapons leave a lot to be desired; And I'm not talking about dps here.So wouldn't it be nice to have signature special attacks/overcharges for some of the weapons? Those would come with certain costs, but could add flashy effects and be a gamechanger in critical situationsTo illustrate what I mean I'll take a few weapon types and suggest a few random specialized skills they could have.Those abilities would have their own "stance type" weapon slots, so not all weapons necessarily get them...but the ones' that have them get to have an extra ability.Edit: Those effects are just random examples and not necesserily what I want in the game...they are just placeholders to get ideas across.Shotguns: Mod: ZealCost: Faster ammo depletionCooldown 30 secondsEffect: Will raise fire rate and lower reload time by 50% each for 3 secondsShotguns: Mod: BustershotCost: 5 AmmoCooldown: 30 secondsEffect: Knock back all enemies infront of you and briefly stun themBows: Mod: Blind aimCost: 0-7 arrows, 50% current staminaColdown: 30 secondsEffect: Shoot 7 arrows at enemies infront of you. Those arrows all deal full damage. 7 Arrows are removed from your ammo pool. If your ammo pool does not have enough arrows left only the amount of arrows left will be fired.Assault Rifles: Mod: ShrapnelCost:15 energy, 2 Magazines worth of ammoCooldown: 20 secondsEffect:Turns all damage into 50% impact and 50% slash for the duration. A specially prepared magazine is used and shots fired are doubled(basically a base-multishot). Every bullet that hits the enemy will shatter into small pieces that can hit surrounding unitsSemi-Auto Pistols: Mod: Penetrating BulletCost: 15 energy, 1 magazine worth of ammoCooldown 30 secondsEffect: After a short delay an energy coated bullet is fired from your pistol that has an area of effect radius (can hit units to the side of your aim) and will penetrate any material for up to 5 meters total range worth of penetration. Shot is a guaranteed red crit.Snipers: Mod: Headshot LegendCost: 10 energy per shot, every shot depletes an additional bullet from the poolCooldown: ToggleEffect: As long as Headshot Legend is active all enemies in range will have aiming circles displayed on them. Those circles are larger than the actual headshot area but aiming at the circles will result in a guaranteed headshot with a raised critical chance.So yea...stance mods for ranged weapons.
