Do you ever wish that weapon X was in TF2, just so you could name it?

    Yea, basically the title. Like a flashbang - "unreal engine emulator", or, for plenty of people, something to do with fullbright!

    Anyone else tend to have this?

    (No, I am not saying that a flashbang should be added to TF2. Just in terms of a hypothetical "an X named Y would be awesome".)

    It would be nice if the heavy had something that wasn't a chaingun.

    I've seen some concept art for an under arm heavy slug weapon that could only be described as an anti-tank gun but i'd have no idea what it'd be called in reality and in terms of naming it... it could be anything. I'd find it easier defining a weapons attributes to balance it against other weapons.

    I might call such a weapon "the slug and lettace", though. The slug being the 88 calibre round and the lettace being other players.

    But as it stands i'd rather Valve removed a weapon than added in something i think would be neat. I bloody hate the equaliser, it's only balanced against the eyelander so it's obviously the class update weapon release, but it's too OP against other classes/melee weapons.

    I had a similar idea to grazr's a while back!

    Anyways, Back when the engineer update was still in the works, me and a friend came up with a bunch of ideas for weapons. One of them was a shotgun that did less damage, but would steal ammo directly from your enemy's clips. I called it the Ammo-vac, although that's kind of lame I guess.

    If we're just going by something silly though, I'd want to name a chainsaw something along the lines of "Tools - Carve". Or maybe "Ctrl+Shift+C" if I wanted to be more vague.

    As grazr said, I'd rather Valve removed weapons rather than add them.


    *coughdeadringercough*

    Though what would be nice is for the Sniper to have four different types of Huntsman, just like the Demoman as 4 different types of Eyelander.

    A new grenade launcher for the demoman, except it's not a grenade launcher; you just hit people with it.

    Not quite on-topic, but I have a reskin for the Bonk! can and particle effect in the works that would work a lot better if the effect were a speed boost instead of invulnerability. I'll give you a hint: It has to do with my current Steam avatar.

    Also holy crap Wimples, where did you get that? I'd love to have it just as a prop.

    Slingshot for the sniper or scout. :D

    A replacement building for Engineer; replace one building with a .. wall .. that can take up a lot of damage before breaking. And it couldn't be repaired.
    And maybe a trampoline too. To do high jumps!
    And landmines of course.

    Pyros should get a torch (melee weapon) it would ignite players on hit, but deal very little melee damage. Pyro could also stick it on the ground where it would stay untill Pyro dies or goes to the locker (gains a new torch). And snipers could light up their arrows at the torches.

    Stink/gas-bomblauncher for demoman? :D Anyone? :( Would fit in the Scotch Bonnet -theme.

    Spies could get some apparatus which would make a transparent spy silhouette at the spy's crosshair, so they could draw distractions. The distractions would be projected, so they only last for some seconds.

    Was actually from the polycount site a bit ago. Fully intended to be wielded and not a prop.

    I was thinking a double-barreled shotgun would go quite nicely with it.

    That's what I thought too, but nope, different model.

    Anyway, this thread has gotten kind of very off-track; we're talking about what you would name weapons that the game doesn't currently have.

    On reflection, if this game offered a claw hammer as a melee weapon, I probably couldn't resist naming it "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". Probably one of the few weapons I would rather rename than describe.
