Revolver Underbarrel Weapons.

Post by ParadoxSpace » 22 Jul 2017, 23:19

Summary (a quick, 2-3 sentence summary): I believe that the revolver (the best gun in the entire game) should be able to take underbarrel weapons. I'd like atleast the Masterkey, as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LeMat_Revolver this has existed in real life, and sounds incredibly useful.
Benefits (How this will benefit the server and game as a whole):
Makes the revolver slightly less poopy.
Details (Description of how you think this would work, the benefits, etc):
Pretty much the Summary.
Implementation (Optional, if you have an idea how to implement it):

This is a straight buff. Does the revolver have any downsides? Does it decrease accuracy as a passive debuff?
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

The revolver only has six bullets at once. That's a pretty hefty downside. Not to mention it has a pretty shit firing speed and high recoil.

I cannot imagine how much that would hurt your hand or how bad the recoil would be.

What if when you used it it had a chance to break your hand.

Im not gonna vote on this, because I'm pretty conflicted. To start off, I want this, I want this hard. I love the revolver and want it to be a super weapon to rival the power of a nuke. But that's just a joke and this could only be added as a joke really. While one gun might have done this irl I don't think there's any lore for it possibly being something the USCM would ever dare to try and do even for all the dumb things they do/have done. Also our revolver already really doesnt look like it could or should fit any attachment other then its stock, when I put a RDS on it feels out of place for my wild west 6 shooter.

For balance it would need to make the weapon size bigger like a stock does. Maybe even require the stock already be on it to work. I can't say I like the chances of someone getting a UB shotgun to work well without more then one point of contact with the revolver. Possibly make it so you need to wield the gun in two hands for it to work?

Other then a joke I can't see the devs really going with this. The revolver is pretty weak but its weak for a reason. It's a side arm not a primary, which means it gets some specific downsides like being total ass if you try to use it as a primary. A buff like this would really push it into being a bit to useful.

Obviously a joke suggestion.

Also mind you that while yes that revolver HAS existed, this is a .44 revolver, its not going to be putting on a underbarrel flamethrower or underbarrel grenade launcher designed for PRIMARY WEAPONS any time soon
