A sword for the pilot, if the sword is used to spot a target then all shots fired from your ship will impact the enemy vessel spotted.
Reminds me of:


Which I quote regularly when I am on a close range gun that is out of range.

A weapon that fires ICBM's at a rate of 10 per minute. Mushroom clouds included. Automatically added to a ship after a kill streak of 3.

As the scenery would be destroyed, instead it would play a video clip from Justin Bieber as death screen. Of course with goggles added to his eyes.

A mechanic where a ship respawns faster if the crew is falling off the ship when it dies. That way, if you are about to die every one jumps off the ship at the same time for an in game bonus. Muse could even make an achievement called "hit the silk" or "rats from a sinking ship" for crews who successfully evacuate a doomed ship.

A new gamemode, called Chicken. The aim of the game is to be the crew to not touch anything on your ship for a longer amount of time than the opposing crew. Sounds easy? Did I mention it occurs inside the CP on Scrap? Have fun.

In a galleon.  I play that game every time I get into that capture and a crew connects with loading problems ecause of all the collisions.

Sounds cool. I do it anyways when my ship is doomed.

I can already see it.  Matches where the captain is screaming 'til he's blue in the face for his crew to FUCKING STAY ON BOARD WE'RE FINE GET ON THE FUCKING GUNS OR WE WILL DIE.

And that is why it will break the game. It introduces the "Prisoner's Dilemma" problem to a game about teamwork. It would be even more game breaking if the player got a personal reward for their treachery and cowardice.

It's quite possibly one of the best suggestions in this thread.  I have to give a salute for its genius.
