My second idea is another gun, this one is more bad xxxx! I’m calling it :Ionized Rifle
This gun would consist of 2 mechanics 1. Laser pointed beam that drains shield/hull of your target that the beam is center on(WHILE holding down the Left mouse) 2. After 3-5 seconds a ball of highly condensed thermal/kinetic energy is dealt to the target(thermal damage) each second you hold the beam the target looses 5 hull/shield to a maximum effect of 25(same as target painter)
This gun would be so cool!
Regulations> The thermal beam would deal 50 thermal damage per second as to let the other target know someone is attacking them? And that the Ball’s damage is taken into though of 1. Low crit chance and 2. Slow projectile speed.
Damage though for the mks
MK 1> The ball would deal 2500 damage(thermal) and cause an additional 100 damage per second in a 250 m cloud
MK 2> The ball would deal 3000 damage(Thermal) and cause 150 additional damage per second in a 250 m cloud
MK 3> The ball would deal 3750 damage(Thermal) and cause 250 additional damage per second in a 250 m cloud
MK 4> The ball would deal 4500 damage(thermal) and cause 350 additional damage per second in a 250 m cloud
MK 5> The ball would deal 3000 damage(Thermal) but the beam would drain 8 pts per second instead of 5 per second, also the cloud would deal 150 damage in 500 m range.
Also!! I think you guys should add special effects to Mk5 weapons, after all its alien technology? what could go wrong!!
