Boom Box Weapon - Bring the Funk
« on: May 29, 2015, 04:38:43 am »
First Post.

So, why is there no giant directional speaker that can be crammed in a gun hardpoint? Pure Psychological weapon, no damage. Toggles on/off. Default ammo links it to crew chat, ammo gives a noise (like a fog horn for lesmok, fire engire siren for heatsink, car alarm = greased...)

Could people just turn of sound? Sure, doesn't matter that much.  What matters is that, not only did you come flying out of the clouds, guns blazing, playing 'Flight of the Concords', The galleon you just snuck up on gets to hear it too!

Congratz on your first post and welcome to the forum

Horns (as non-weapons) has been already suggested many times.

I don't see reason to replace any weapon with horn. If you want to throw your weapon spot out of the window, you can always take the harpoon.

Also, perhaps fluff reasons.

Actually if it could play whatever tune we wanted...I entirely support this change. Just work it through Steam voice but have it broadcast to all. Every time my Squid attacks, the Shinryaku! song would play...pure bliss and pure terror.

Course the sad thing is...this fun would be ruined by trolls and people using it for the wrong reasons and thus it would get removed right away. We can't have nice things because these people exist. So, nice idea, but never going to happen because of people.

Much rather a pilot tool where if equipped your voice chat becomes set to lobby voice chat during match.

That or if you simply press the use button like any tool and hold it. It becomes an all can hear button (even in spectate).

I give you the MEGAPHONE!

I saw this post and I'm like "hey, this sounds like an idea a Bard would have" AND SURE ENOUGH

Obviously I'm all for this idea, and anyone with any basic decency would be as well

This is what I think too... A great idea which would be good but ultimately would be abused by trolls :(

Heh, Noise Marines take the skies!

This could be abused if allowed custom music, I mean, I'd ram myself in a wall if I had to listen to something like Anaconda over and over again. Maybe that's the point...
On the other hand, the idea of sonic weaponry is rather awesome.
Blasting people to Abney Park would be fun.

Does that mean we get to shoot adamantium sacks of power doorknobs as a special ammo?

No, that's default for carros.
