Interesting Question #2
« on: January 23, 2014, 03:09:19 am »
If boarding or general person-on-person close-quarters combat existed in Guns of Icarus Online, what handheld weapon(s) would you like to carry into battle?

If such a heresy existed, a straight sword, and a revolver.

Thats easy...you unleash the Creepy Zuka Dolls on them. They're 1000x more effective than the creepy woody doll:

I'd take a bottle of Zukasauce and a creepy Zuka doll, douse them in Zukasauce and then bludgeon their sanity with the creepy Zuka doll.

A handheld flamethrower

Or some molotov cocktails

I'm a cake after all

or maybe James T. Kirk's cat.

I'd take a me revolver (get it? xD) and probably a fancy dagger, so I'd make my enemies say "I have too much swagger for the dagger" to let them live because it cracks me up :P

Moustache-raygun, growing moustaches on enemies.

Seriously, boarding action just breaks the game spirit. Crewmen doesn't die form heavy airship fire, why do you think you can kill them with a revolver?

But, do you know what do you can do? Throw them overboard.

*Daydream mode: on*

I'd love to se boarding weapons to push enemies (left click), and avoid being pushed (right click). Kinda - Revolver: Push *****, Parry *; Cutlass: Push ***, Parry ***; Rapier: Push *, Parry *****, etc... To make a kinda swashbuckling duel, helping mates being pushed and teaming up to push certain enemy...

Those who fall respawn normally unless an enemy captain takes the helm of your ship. Then its colour changes and fell over crewmen just wait like when the ship is destroyed until your captain is pushed overboard and respawn a new ship, or he just takes the enemy off the helm.

That could create a new class, the boarder/soldier/whatever, and a new kind of maps, capture ships (and flying them back to base for points) / protect the vip.

I think this is more a pit related post since this does not include actual gameplay.

I think this is more a General Discussion related post since this is a general question involving the game.

I would take a billhook pole arm. If someone scratches the paint on my ship, they are going to get the bill.
