Ability to re-pick up a bonus
« on: April 22, 2007, 06:35:47 pm »
It is in fact, quite common in other multi-player games that if someone had a power-up or a bonus and someone killed him, they could then pick it up.  I'll fully explain it here.

In Soldat for example, the Predator Bonus will give you a full 25 seconds of invisibility.  No he ran around and his time lasted to 15 seconds and someone else came along and killed him.  Now his Predator Bonus will just drop to the ground and the guy who killed him or anybody else who came along will have the ability to re-pick up that Predator Bonus.  This could be compatible with the Berserker, FlameGod, Vest, and Cluster Grenade bonuses.  Except when you pick it up, you have as much grenades, or time left in the bonus as the last person who had it.

Interesting. I've thought about suggesting this myself, but you beat me to it.
I completely agree to this.

Yes, me too. It's kind of like picking up the grenades and ammo off a dead guy in Halo, and the kit of some other soldier in Battlefield.

Don't say that you're Magic. Because you aren't, and I am.
All-around good with weapons that aren't long range, except in TW.
Now be careful out there, soldier.

Or in Quake 2, picking the quad off of  dead guy.

If your gonna put this in why not regular grenades too? Honestly I wouldn't suggest this. The bonuses just don't last long enough to make it worth it. And for the things that don't have a timer (like the flamer gun, cluster grenades and vest) they aren't supposed to come back.
The vest...You lose this before you die.
The flamer..If it could come back then it would never leave (cos everyone would always be picking it back up)
The cluster grenades. Well, this is about the only one that it could work for but it's only one and it wouldn't have that much effect anyway.

I don't support.

You mean only two spawn at all and then you can battle over who has it? No...Not good... (IMO)

NOT true, I've died with an almost full vest, if you pick it up when almost dead then die...

However I don't really like the idea because... think of it.
Player A grabs predator, player B kills A 23 seconds later. Player B grabs predator, and enjoys it... for 2 seconds...
You can't be killed while the flame bonus is in effect.
I don't like cluster nades anyways.

What he means is that the bonus can only be picked up, after killing the person who has it, twice. I'm thinking Flamer here:

First guy gets flame god bonus. He dies after the ten seconds. Second guy picks it up, gets M79'd. The third guy picks it up, then dies, and the flamer disappears. Then another Flame god bonus pops up somewhere on the map. Cycle is repeated.

And for Predator, it could only be circulated once. It's kinda hard to kill a pred anyway, if they're not moving.

And cluster nades and grenades would be circulated till they're gone. See, it does work.

I fully support this, think about it:
a noob on your team(team match) picked up a berserk and got killed before he gets a chance to kill anyone and wasted 15 seconds of massive killing spree... dont u just wish u could have picked that berserk up again and kill all ur enemies?

i think ability to re-pick up grenades that are remaining on corpse sounds much more intresting and realistic...

Just regular grenades? It could turn into a 'nade-fest for more itchy grenade throwers if you ask me :P Perhaps, but from my perspective only half of the corpse's supply should be available for grabs.

Regular gernades, Cluster gernades, and predator..  All of those work.

I was just thinking about "you should be able to pick up enemy ammo"... silly me ^_^

I think it's enough with being able to pick up the enemy weapon. Maybe the ability to pick up grenades from enemies would be fine, but only if there weren't random grenade kits on the map. So would be like, you want more grenades? kill that guy.

Okay, what the hell. It's 2 damn days old. I've seen resurrections over 1 or 2 years and the guy who did it wasn't even warned.

since this is still on the first page, im gonna say f12.

make it toggle-able for server-owners who don't like it (any maybe make the amount of times something can be picked up variable too).
