This sounds like a weird niche but I love seeing games that have combat but with a deemphasised focus on guns. Rather than having guns be the main focus of combat they rather have guns be these powerful weapons that should be used as a last resort.
A few examples I can think of this type of feature being done are.
I know this is a random and niche thing but I just like games that treat guns as serious and deadly weapons and show their effectiveness in combat. It gives the weapons power and when I see it happen it makes them feel realistic with the depiction of thier power.
Andrew Hopps wrote this tweet in response to the TWAB announcement of sunsetting (of just weapons at the time).
If you can’t read the tweet it says, and I quote:
“You know how Recluse shits on everything in PvE? Weapon sunsetting means we can add more weapons that shit on everything and they just eventually fall behind in power. New weapons that shit on everything can be added without constant power creep. I’m very excited for it.”
Never mind the sunsetting doesn’t 99% of PVP, but anyway.
I’m not seeing these weapons that absolutely “shit” on everything I had before. Most of the weapons we got with BL and the Season are pretty bog standard. We got some interesting perks but fairly average weapons.
So Bungie, where’s our “shit”?
EDIT: The extremely cynical part of me thinks Bungie doesn’t see the point in making “shit on everything” weapons themselves because they know they will expire in a year.
Their aesthetic is amazing and all of them are satisfying to use, if Rasputin is returning in a future season like the lore has been teasing bringing us new Ikelos weapons would be pretty cool.
Like what about:
- A Kinetic Sidearm
- An Arc Scout Rifle
- A Solar Fusion Rifle
- A Void Rocket Launcher
Or anything, really. I just really like Ikelos weapons.
Still waiting for DFA, Duty Bound and basically all of the Trials of the Nine weapons. There are so many awesome Y1 guns. Just some examples I hope for.
