  • Specific types of weapons YOU would like to see

    So we already know the basic archetypes of weapons in Grim Dawn. You have ranged weapons, specifically pistols, rifles and crossbows. You have melee weapons, the three archetypes being swords, axes and clubs.
    Now I want to ask: what specific types of weapons would YOU like to see?
    For example, we know a confirmed melee weapon archetype is the axe. So specifically what I'd like to see is a buzzsaw (this has also been confirmed, iirc, see the image below)

    The reason why I started this thread is to see the amount and variety of weapons we could come up with, some the devs may not even know of. Begin!
    Cheers,

      Hand scythes would be cool. Just because it is a scythe that works with dual wielding my favourite beat down play style.

      Tekken would be cool too, but I really doubt they will get in. They are highly specialized weapons for use with the style tekkenjutsu.

        @Grilled: medierra has said GD won't be going steampunk, but still, I would love to see a scythe make it in as a savage two-handed weapon (they were unlocked on the Kickstarter stretch goals, after all ) or maybe a hand scythe (like this one )
        Btw, med also mentioned that he too, would like to see a whip, but if it is ever going to get in, it would happen in an expansion along with some other requested weapons (like the "pistol sword"), AND it would be it's own weapon class, not just a unique weapon! See here for his quote

        @Konda: Totally agree with you there, mate! Dual-wielding wicked hand scythes while dropping mines as you go (as the demolition mastery) or backed up by a healing raven or flaming hell hound (as an occultist)... the possibilities are endless!
        Btw, I couldn't find any images of a tekken, could you post a link or something, please?

          I would love to see glove type weapons. I'm not sure how many of you saw Avatar: The Legend of Korra tv series, but the "evil" Separatists had a power glove type of weapon. Basically, it was a glove that had an electronic pulse device put into it. Was pretty interesting.

            Scythes. Kama. Especially with a chain.

                        @Madman: What weapon archetype would that fall under, or would it be it's own? Fist weapons work in aRPG's IMO, like claw weapons and such

                        @Kyon: Agreed there. Steampunk really only works in my opinion when done in small amounts. But goblin steam mechs and stuff like that... really doesn't work for me. So good to see we are of the same opinion there.

                        @gdansk: Those Kama's are just too cool I was trying to think of the name for the hand scythes, and then I saw your link. This pic really makes them look epic too.

                        @sonicchill: I would love to see those too

                        @thorn: I doubt we'll see anything like that, however we may see pikes and halberds, if that interests you as much as a plain wooden stick

                        Thanks for all the replies, everybody. Good to see all the different opinions on epic weapons here And if anyone cares, this is my 100th post! Cookies all around!

                            Bells, whistles and cookies... now this is starting to sound like a party
                            But that brings up another question: bells and whistles in Grim Dawn? You can have grim bells and whistles, right?

                              Why not? it would surely make the players immerse themselves in the environment more than ever.
