This is something I've been thinking about for a while, adding unique weapons that monsters drop in game, and once you pick them up, they're stored with your RPG data, always appearing in your inventory when you join the server.

These weapons would have multiple weapon effects, (Possibly both good and bad)

I've held off on implementing it though because with the addition of loaded weapons, it seems that most high level players already get really nice weapons...

What-cha all think?

I like the idea but yes it might clash with loaded weapons. So admins will just have to evaluate which they want more. Personally if it didn't conflict I would run the unique weapons alongside a loaded skill that stopped at level 1.

I love the idea, but I am very worried about balancing issues. Maybe make it so you need a specfifc ability before you can even carry unique weapons, and that for each level of this new ability allows you to carry a unique weapon of each weapon group one at a time.

Just brain storming.

I'm worried about balancing too. My current idea is that you could only hold 2 unique weapons at any time. Beyond that you'd have to pass them on to others.

Food for thought

here's my idea:
you have an ability like Immoreuniquethanyou with three levels.

the first level lets you have 1 unique except one that boosts a stat

the second level lets you have 1 unique of any kind.

the third level lets you have 2 uniques of any kind.

the cost per level would be 20. (max 3)

the possible unique abilities:
attack speed booster (2*Modifer)
attack damage booster (1.5*Modifier)
Ammo booster (5*Modifier)
Dampening aura (slows down nearby enemies enemy speed-2*Modifer)
fatal aura (slows down nearby players player speed-2*Modifier including self)
where modifier = rand(1,10)

The chance of getting a unique would be increased by .05 for every level, starting from .05.

does anyone remember the cluster redeemer? Dru, im not sure how bad this would lag the server but it is definately one of the coolest weapons ive seen in the game. you can set how many grenades come out of the redeemer. we used to play with 800, and it was truly a sight to see! also, the gravity vortex would be a welcome addition, especially on an invasion server!

how about a gun that makes you invulnerable to certian attacks, ie rocks, nali? please?
-lightning gun that has major splash damage, or even chain damage, like it hits one monster and then the next nearest one.

How about bringing back the gravity vortex super? That thing was cool. My only concern would be team kills, and you know how big a concern that is with me!

how about a sheild gun that shoots? IE, the protective shield would fly out, burninating the countryside. I mean, causing damage to monsters. And the primary fire could shoot an arrow or dart or strongsad's spear even.

One possibility would be that the lower level players would have a higher chance of getting a unique weapon than the higher players, possibly in increments of .2%. As you progress, the less likely it is for you to pick up a unique weapon, although the loaded weapons ability would still cater for your needs. This would certainly balance teams out as the vast majority of games seem to have an immense cross section of varied level players.

Other than that, what about a weapon spray ability? The first level increases splash and spray damage for your weapons, such as the Flak having a wider spray, and each further level increases those further (max level 3).
