[SUGGESTION] New weapon: solar wind

#1
I realized that the laser's effect of blasting other people away could be put to good use Angel

This new weapon could be shooting orangish clouds of solar dust, pushing people away or boosting your teammates in CTF etc.

It could have like a really long charging time, and also a certain amount of damage.

Giv me some time to make the model.

This is what the Xon does already, plus there are at least 5 other weapons that you can use to do this quite effectively:
  • Laser
  • Mortar
  • RL
  • HLAC
  • Fireball
  • Etc

Plus the hook can grab enemies and has a gravity bomb alt fire.

I mean pushing not grabbing! I'll only agree with the laser I guess. The HLAC/Mortar don't really push people away, they're more like a different version of the machine gun. RL, xon/nex and Fireball can kill your teammates and the fireball ridiculous slow.

The kind of weapon I'm thinking of is like a massive version of a hairdryer, or a more effective version of the laser if you prefer, and doesn't really do direct damage but rather blows people away. (more like another super weapon)

The Mortar is beside the Laser the ultimative weapon to push people of maps. Tongue
And the best weapon to boost is Nex for sure.

noooo I meant a weapon that doesn't do direct damage and has a unique kind of projectile!

your ideas sounds more like a proposal to replace the laser. basically something with the exact same function, but with a different effect and an idea for WHY it pushes people around.

No, the laser will never be replaced. It is so fundamental in xonotic that theres no way it should/could be replaced. What I am saying here is that maybe we can expand the laser's most basic effect into another weapon that has a larger push strength.

And that is not exactly how i use the laser.
