Throwable weapons can go over walls/ Throwable Boomrats!
« on: August 27, 2014, 03:26:52 PM »

I think it would be interesting to see throwable weapons such as grenades, molotov's, and pila (and boomrats ;) ) able to go over walls. When the weapon is thrown over a wall, accuracy would be very poor, but keep the thrower out of harms way. This would allow you to deal with raiders that are attacking your walls (or trying to plant an explosive ;) ). The down side is that raiders would also be able throw things over walls as well.

My other suggestion is the ability to train and equip boomrats as weapons! This would require you to capture boomrats with traps( Kinda like DF ;) ) and train them. They would then be come equiptable as a weapon. Unlike most throwable weapons they would only have one use, but here's the kicker! When throw at an enemy, the boomrats would explode on contact, but if the thrower misses, the boomrats would land on the ground, and attack it's original target. So basically, homing grenades!

Imagine equipping all your colonists with boomrats, hurling them over your walls, and watch chaos unfold as the raiders run for their lives from your angry pack of boomrats!

Actually, i think a modder made one. Can't remember the mod's name, though.

On the right path, but the wrong medication.

I like how there's a thing that displays how long you've logged in to the forums. It shows just how many hours you've spent here, never to get back...

This would make a funny gag event. "The raiders are throwing boomrats!"

'Sounds a bit OP for the colonists, though. xD
