This is a really undeveloped idea. What I mean by that is that I just thought of it immediately and that this idea, (like any other ideas, but this one in particular) should be open to and adjustable by y’all.
I was thinking of some sort of close range melee weapon, Like some sort of whip or sword. It wouldn’t be a projectile, rather than that it would be a weapon that would be attached to the ship in a way.
I’ll try my best to show what I mean with this elegant image down below.
I’d say that judging by it’s nature, at least the way I presented it, would fit as a satelite rather than a main weapon.
Again, this isn’t a fully-fledged idea and it should be adjusted to your calibers, but I think it’d make for an interesting and useful weapon, that’s why I thought of opening up this idea.
Notice: I’m not suggesting both of them at once, I just suggested 2 to add up more possibilities.
It also doesn’t have to be specifically a whip or a sword, that’s just what I thought of at that moment.
Any further ideas that I have to it will be typed down below this edit checkpoint.
I was thinking that the weapons would insta-kill or would kill in 2 hits almost all types of normal, non-boss enemies.
I’m not good with how damage works so I’m not gonna touch that.
I was also thiking that the whip would swing from one side to the other, at about a 45 degree rate when it reaches one end.
