I figured I’d make my own topic for some of my main ideas. (By the way, big heartfelt thanks to @EmeraldBirb for helping with putting example images and .gifs together for the weapon/enemy ideas.)
[Weapon] Snowflake Flurry [Might need a new design]
This weapon idea is my first, named Snowflake Flurry, which fires a spray of snowflake-shaped cryogenic crystals that can slow enemies down a bit the more they get hit by it. Unlike weapons already included in CiU, this would be the first weapon of its kind adding a new Weapon Group type: The Cold Weapon group, since it’s a cold weapon, it overheats rather slowly. At 0 firepower, it has a firerate of ~5/second. Each snowflake projectile is low-mediocre damaging, increased firepower only increasing the amount of snowflakes fired instead of damage, as well as the slowness effect on enemies. It would be more effective to use automatic fire with this weapon instead of manual fire since more snowflakes would be fired. Its gift box would be cyan with a white ribbon.

[Weapon] Burst Bubble
This weapon is my second idea, which is called Burst Bubble. It fires a large bubble that deals mediocre damage on its first contact with an enemy, after which it splits into 2 smaller bubbles that deal less damage. This is an Organic weapon, with a slow-moderate overheat rate. At 0 firepower, it has a firerate of 0.5 (1 bubble/2 seconds). Increased firepower increases the bubble’s damage, with firerate becoming faster at 5 firepower, 10 firepower and 20 firepower with 1 bubble per second, 2 bubbles/second and 4 bubbles/second respectively and smaller bubbles get affected too (4 small bubbles at 5, 6 at 10 and 8 at 20). Manual fire might be a better choice here. Its gift box would be dark blue with a light gray ribbon.

[Enemy] Medal Chicken
What if Chickens had their own headquarters…?
This is my first enemy idea, the Medal Chicken. Medal Chickens would be similar to Ordinary Chickens, except they show up on rare occasions (replacing a random enemy), drop 3 keys, and also drop their medal on death. Don’t try to pick that one up though, the Medal Chicken’s medals are supposed to be deadly. Their medals can also block off your projectiles and can’t be destroyed.
[Missions] Feather Fields + A few general suggestions
Now these ideas are more of general suggestions given existing game content from the Episodes, however, where are the Feather Fields? I miss those from Ci4. Now, while a new boss for those type of missions would be nice and all, I was wondering about something not just with Feather Field missions, but also Comet Chase, Supernova Debris and Meteor Storm missions. The new bosses are nice, but why not reminisce about the legacy battles too? Similarly to how the 120th Anniversary Crazy Squawker boss was added to Squawk Block missions, how about the possibility of encountering Mysterious Ship, Apple Core, All types of U.C.O.'s and Twice Infinity (eventually, when Feather Fields get added) on Comet Chase, Supernova, Meteor Storm and Feather Field (eventually) missions respectively?
