Some time ago on the forum there was an idea of a stackable throwable projectile. The concept was about shurikens, but it was turned down for several reasons (didnt fit in the barbaric theme, etc)
So im reviving this concept, but instead of shurikens I think we could use...
(Currently i dont have time to do some pixel art so I took an image from google just for refference)
Rezoner came up with a similar idea a while ago but turned it down himself.
This is the part where you pay attention
The rocks should be stackable items. Unlike the other items, it would be found all over the map instead of boxes and barrels(It makes more sense this way, though its up to Rez how they would work)
The rock should fly in a slightly curved live so it looks natural. It should have the same speed as the throwing knife, but a certain range, maybe about the range of the grenade.
And this is the part where you dont have to pay attention, because I'll make these rocks unbalanced AF
Of course you cant hold an infinite amount of these. The maximal number should be limited to about 5
(if you have any better idea leave it down im not good at balancing stuff)
Each rock should deal 0.5 DMG or 1/16 of your total health i think (Im not sure how does the health work, how to measure it) so you can maximally deal 2.5 DMG or 5/16 of an enemy's health.
Rocks should be quite rare, maybe about 30-40 on the entire map at once
End of unbalanced part
Also rocks fit in the barbaric feel because, well, they're rocks. They've always been a weapon for fighting, in the "Unga bunga" period as well.
If you like the idea, upvote. If you don't like the balancing DON'T DOWNVOTE just leave your version below and let people appreciate it.
Thats about it. I hope you'll have a great day. Also I might do a pixel art sprite for the rock in the weekend.
Always yours, Razvancic the Ogre Slayer
