shield as secundary weapon
« on: June 17, 2006, 09:01:29 pm »

I don't know why, but I like shield as secondary weapon.

I know it doesnt have sense in a 20th century soldier.

But I would like a shield that can be destroyed after some hits or points of damage.

Sounds good to me. Would it survive a m79 or rambo SHISHKABOOM arrow though? And it would be so that the shielder must press the shield buttong before the bullet hits.

Although, i could imagine it being...whatsitcalled...resigned or whatever the word is.

that would be excellent - and its not wierd for a 20th C soldier - counter-strike has them :)

It could either not protect you from demolitions or get destroyed from demolitions and leave you with real low health. (More the former though)

If the shield can only block bullets and prevent partial damage from laws, m79s and nades, I'm all for it...

Yeah this is great! And also you can't shoot while using it, that would be stupid. It would be like a vest, except alot more inconvenient to use. The more weapons the better!

How about having a limited amount of time you can use the shield, before it has to "reload". Also, you could make it so when using the shield you move much slower, maybe at crouch speed and have less jets.

like when you click the sheild goes up to protect you for a long time then needs to "reload"? that would take atleast a bit of skill to use.

Yeah, so you can't have people that just shield the whole map, grab the flag then run back and cap. Just like you don't want people to be able to shoot unlimited amounts of ammo.

in real lfe chainsaws dont reload, so igeuss it wouldnt be wierd to have a reloading shield. I actually like this idea...it would add a whole new strategy to the game, and it would be a whole new skill to develop!
Your acting like your having a duel and your opponent gets a pistol and you get a spork.
Isn't that pretty much what it is? I dunno wtf a spork is, I suppose it's way weaker than the pistol since you compared that to this.

Here's an idea -- make the chainsaw the "shield." Make the actual saw part of the chainsaw deflect shots when being used. This will make the saw more useable both as an offensive and defensive weapon. Since it'd be running from the existing weapon, there wouldn't be an issues with removing/adding weapons, and it shouldn't be much to get a running chainsaw invincible, deadly land type properties.

How about that the shield has a sertain amouth of "armor" wich will be seen in the ammo bar, as the sheild takes damage, the bar will go down and eventually itll break when it reaches zero....

Or to make it like in counterstrike. Pistols and shield. That would work i think. Shield on if u dont shoot. Shield goes down when u shoot. How bout that???

I've not played Counter Strike, but wouldn't that lead to lots of turtle-ing while you wait with shield for your enemy to waste their ammo, then attack while he's reloading? I think the pace of the game would stall tremendously if there were something such as a default shield.

The shield should be the only weopan that you can kill someone with hand to hand combat.and i like who ever said press a button inorder for it to work.But it work like switch to shield when bomb hit's then switch to primary weopan and hose em down.

Suggestion: With shield your primary reloads while holding shield. This to me gives the shield a point (you pull it out when your barret reloads). However, it can't be too strong else it would be like an ownage material.
