New Weapon: Shredder Cannon
« on: July 10, 2014, 09:57:02 pm »
My idea for a heavy gun that does piercing damage


SHREDDER CANNON
TYPE: HEAVY GUN

Arcs: 15 horizontal, 25 up, 20 down
Damage type: Piercing
Damage overall: further range then the chain gun and able to do more damage fast in a single clip but with a long enough reload time that chain gun has the higher dps in the long run.

Projectiles:very inaccurate, fast arcing shots similar to the light flak gun
clip size: 10-12
Range: medium

Advantages:
+decent range
+lots of damage
+no arming time so shots can be point blank

Disadvantages
-inacurrate would have to rely on luck or heavy clip to be effective at range
-only one damage type so not very versatile and can only do one job
-poor arcs make it very reliant on ship positioning
-long reload really detracts from dps
-no AOE so relies on direct hits

Unique features:
-First heavy gun to do piercing
