Weapon Names

Postby seana11 » Sat Feb 02, 2013 3:38 am UTC

Yesterday on irc, it was suggested that we rename most of the weapons. None of the trem weapons except for the painsaw and the lucifer cannon really have a 'personality.' What do you guys think we should rename weapons to?

My suggestions:

I think we should make weapons companies that parody real ones ("Hack and Cough"). Parodying ream weapons would also work ("Spasm-12"). We could also do acronyms ("SPLAT: Super Plasma Launching Attack Taser" for the prifle)

Or we could modify our current ones:

Mashinegun (rifle)
Peni$aw (Painsaw, cheap and efficient for the daring leroy jenkin followers).
Shotty (Well, thats what a lot of people call the shotgun)
Chagin' gun (Chaingun)
CCPA: MD (Cern's Compact Particle Accelerator: the Mass Driver)
Pain Trail (Pulse, one of the highest damage dealing weapons)
Flameball Launcher (Flamer, launches 5 "missiles" per second afterall, which seems unrealistic)
MDKannon (Luci with a dubbed title, dunno who exactly created it, but I remember it was some aussie)

Just add shit like "mark IV", "model 83", "m123" and so on. Isn't that how people usually brand military hardware? Or you give them funny acronyms that sound all scientific and stuff.

Example
"Combat Shotgun Mark IV" in the description and just call it a shotgun everywhere else.
or the classic
"BFG" "Big freakin' gun" or "Bio Force Gun"

Here're the weapons that I think need a new name (arranged from worst to less bad):
Las gun
Painsaw
Shotgun
Rifle
Pulse rifle
Chaingun
Grenade (if you plan on adding different types of nades)
Flamethrower

Mass Driver and Lucifer Cannon should remain unchanged imo.

I still think the Painsaw is a pretty cool name, I don't see why that needs to be changed.

The description says it is a Gauss cannon that propels nuclear micro-warheads. I don't think we should leave that as-is.
