so i seen that in the notes for the future update and im wondering… how will that be any different from auto cannons?
arent auto cannons already anti air craft guns?
if anything id say they can aim higher?? maybe deal bonus damage against vehicles that are in the air?
ive played warthunder before and seen how the anti air guns work, they have alot more rotation and can aim alot higher then most guns. so idk.
also how would we acquire the rotor blades? maybe i missed it in the notes, ill have to go back and reread them. i know we get one for free to start out but what about the others?
idk i am excited to see the new anti aircraft gun and what its capable of. what do you all think though?
NO!!! DO NOT GIVE THEM IDEAS!!! bad mud! bad! wheres the newspaper, i gotta bap you one!
heh joking aside do you think retchers can reach that high? i mean i assume they are going to have the sky box quite high up and im curious how high up retchers can reach.
well yeah but there are huge downsides to that as well. the firing angles on top of turning etc to look at your enemy to land shots. if someone gets beside you then your screwed.
well it is a gun thats anti aircraft so im unsure. maybe it does piercing damage? maybe it has uhh… what do you call that… marked shots?? tracer rounds i think? maybe it has multiple ammunition types?
im hoping they make them available to be built with a permanent blueprint once the events done and over with. because if they are locked behind a battlepass then that is NOT going to go over well with a vast majority of people.
i can just imagine the hate and rage that will happen if they lock that stuff behind temporary blueprints…
Temporary blueprints seems to be the way they’re going these days, and I wish that wasn’t the case.
On the plus side, blueprints often reappear later as workpieces, which can bring prices back down to more reasonable levels.
You can also try to profit from the temporary blueprints, by crafting lots while you can, and selling later when they become valuable.
Having said that, there’s lots of old BP stuff sitting on the market for almost nothing, especially since they started allowing people to unfuse BP items to sell.
yeaaaaah… Tempuras are sitting at 100 coins each and i have 4 of them collecting dust. i just made them cause i thought id be able to sell them but holy crap that price is so low. i had 4 of the buildable blueprints so i just made those. but yeah a ton of the blueprints i have are just worthless. hell itll cost more to make the item then to sell it.
i have alot more blueprints then that but they arent worth anything. its a shame to.
i sure hope not.
what im thinking is maybe theyll introduce a new faction thats helicopter related. one that focuses on air battles. then theyll make all the rotors and whatnot available from them. the waste land air force!
They already mentioned that most factions had either developed their own or copied others. So I don’t think it will be a new faction. It’s really just a question of how many unique rotors there will be in total.
As for the other thing I just don’t put it past them as far as shoving them into mini-pass because of how they’ve handled other stuff before. I think it’s a really bad idea in regards to major movement parts. They could get around some of the issues (trapping portion of a mode behind a paywall) a little just by handing a default rotor out at say X level. That to me would still be a really crappy way to deal with it.
I’d trust them a lot more if BP content was just early access and things presented in the BP eventually made it into the main game.
They also said that some other weapons will be able to fire upwards better, so hopefully Whirl is on that list. I would guess all the auto cannons have been given a steeper angle, or at least I hope so.
The new gun looks good though. I like that it’s six energy, as that makes modules easier to manage. I also like the proximity detonation aspect. Should be strong in ground modes too, and could be very good in confrontation.
