Converting Light to Heavy
« on: March 20, 2015, 05:32:52 pm »
Everyone loves new guns, and they especially love Heavy guns, because there are so few.  That has been alleviated a little with the Minotaur, but lets be honest- Moar = Gud.  So, I want you guys to throw out suggestions to change Light weapons into a Heavy version, excluding flak and carronade.  Some might argue the Banshee is a baby Hwatcha, but they serve almost totally different roles, so it's free.  So is the mortar, as the Lumberjack pops balloons, not utterly tears things to pieces.  Don't worry too much about balance, it's just speculation.  Here are a few I thought up.

Jupiter Field Cannon: A giant, pierce/explosive, 1 shot Mercury, with so much recoil it actually moves the firing ship backwards.

Tartarus Heavy Cannon: Heavy Hades, basically.  Much more fire damage, replace pierce with shatter, high ignition chance, much smaller clip, much slower movement speed, projectile expansion, arming range, small left/right, average down, bad up.  Starts off with low shot arc, but it dips sharply after awhile.

Can't think of a name, but heavy mine launcher. Twice the damage as normal mines, and four times the size.

Deimos heavy mine launcher would be good as phobos means fear and deimos means terror (this have anything to do with what we've been doing in the cantina shaded? :D)

Actually yes, a little.  The heavy flamer got me thinking, then I thought up the Tartarus, and the Jupiter is an older gun I thought up.  So then I figured I'd make this.  Although if something really cool comes up (Like the Deimos, although I might change it a little) I'd ask if I could use it.

More shatter than pierce, I should think, and the Hurricane Heavy Gatling Cannon.

Heavy Flare Gun, please. It could work as blinding grenade* which perhaps could automatically spot enemies.

Apollo Heavy Missle Launcher. Not sure on the attributes. Maybe some fire, since he is the sun god. Fire+shatter, with burst ammo? Sounds deadly.

my take:

Howler hunter mine launcher - a mine with a self destruct timer of 120 seconds that deals flechette/shatter damage and has limited homing abilities (and can't distinguish friend from foe). the name comes from the howling sound the projectile makes once it locks on a target

Valkyrie heavy flamer - Same range, ammo and effect of the flamer but much larger spread both horizontally and vertically, excellent for large scale barbecuing.

Pluto howizer - it is like hades with a long range and pronounced shell drop, less than 5 rounds and a large fire AoE. Usually paired on Galleons with the Lumberjack

Mirmidon rocket revolver - The bigger sister of the Banshee is a single round weapon with fast reload that fires a slow moving, clustered warhead that deals light fire/explosive damage and spreads once armed. Ideal for finishing fast moving targets or controlling narrow passages.

Volcano autoloading gun - A weapon initially developed for land based emplacements, it has been modified only recently for airship combat. The double belt feeding system is somewhat clunky, which means that the weapon is damaged by simply firing it. Yet with a good engineering crew it can be kept somewhat operational for a good amount of time (Yes, its a weapon on moonshine, so what?  :D ). through its four muzzles it fires low caliber piercing shots that, by some accounts, it reminds of a volcano eruption. (pierce/pierce damage at short range, highest RoF of the game, 200 rounds but once fired it takes heavy damage with deactivation delay

I don't understand the idea of a tesla gun. Nothing is electrical, what purpose would it serve? I suppose, since it is electricity, it would spread across the ship, but that seems a bit overpowered. Could you explain the use a a tesla gun, beyond it just being cool to have?
