Saw while backflipping
« on: July 04, 2008, 07:11:31 pm »
You can't rev your chainsaw while in a backflip..

Trust me, as sawers we NEED this :o

There would be Nothing cooler than doing a backflip cannonball and carving your way through the members of bravo and landing in their base.  Nothing.


While im at it why not add in the ability to shoot in a backflip aswell? :D

Edit: added a poll to make things easier ;)

Okay, What uses would it have other than to 'be cool,' as you put it?

I would say no to firing while back-flipping. It's sort of an evading action, which focuses on avoiding gunfire while foregoing your chance to attack.
But I would like to see chainsaw cannonballs though. I think it buffs the chainsaw, and makes it more fun to use.

Yeah, It'd have a nice effect on bots set to 'Impossible.'
Nade them, they get into a backflip and fly at you....

I actually had this thought the other day when I was in game.

I was in a position to do just what this topic suggests.  Backflipping, I had my saw out and noticed it sticking out in perfect position to cut up or at least injure a couple people while moving.  Heck, I was even clicking the mouse, to no avail.

I'd say f12 for the saw.  It wouldn't have that much of an impact but it could add a nice touch to the saw, which is already a fairly limited weapon due to it's close range.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams it is
still a beautiful world.  Strive to be happy.

The saw is a lot bigger in this soldat version now than in the 1.3.1 version. F11. Most people wouldn't have a problem with the saw's close range, as there are some saw experts that wouldn't have any problems with the saw's short range.

Not a bad idea for saw. Other weapons it's a hell no.

But I think saw is really good enough as it is. Don't have to boost it further probably except a faster reload or making the reg better for it.



Instead, I have a better suggestion for it. I'll put it up in a separate topic:

F12. One of the main annoyances while sawing was the missed opportunities from this.

STM's right int he the other weapons don't really need this. Not that'd it'd be unbalanced, it's just...Hell, I don't WANT my weapon to fire while I'm backflipping.
I attend grammar school, last grade, and ignorance is all around me. Well, good for them. Ignorance is bliss.

If you backflip and use saw, or any gun, wouldn't it just turn around and cut/shoot you in the butt?

It's not about extending the range.  Just functionality.

It's the goddamn saw. No one gets any kills with it anyways, it needs every bonus it can get.

That's not true. It's just a bit tough to use. A good sawer can even mow through a whole group of enemies like no tomorrow.

F11, that would just be too much. How the fuck can you shoot an assault rifle while you are turning upside down, and hit the target!?

I think the emphasis was on giving the ability to the saw.  Autos were just kinda..tossed in there for s**ts and giggles?

:( Sonic

First, I don't see how the animation/visual effect would work - and then I can really picture people just backflipping their way across a map. 

The saw is great to give your team TIME. If your FFC is escaping or your base is swamped, use the saw to slow opponents down. Chances are they will do what they can to avoid you.

-- This assuming you're not using the saw in totally inappropriate times and areas or trying to gain kills in the middle of the map.

In my opinion it's a waste of time, and chainsaw can be buffed by changing the wm.

Bond, How does any of that affect the ability to saw during a backflip?

and the weapon is not used for just slowing people down...  It CAN be used to slow people down, but team tactics are not what this idea is for.  

This idea is aimed towards people who saw vs other sawers, not nessecarily gunners.  Put it this way, there are few manouvers that one can choose when making direct saw contact with an enemy.  As a matter of fact, only one element of soldat movement is involved in sawing.  The prone position.  Of course theres jumping, but that is involved in all of soldat, its common sense.  The idea of introducing backflipping into saw moves opens the door to more opportunities and options during a saw to saw confrontation.  Along with that, it CAN be used on gunners (cannon ball saw strike ftw?)
