Hi, Akemisora here.
I want to present my weapon concept. Yes, Watermelon Launcher.
It’s supposed to be in bio group like Corn Shotgun,but if it’s moved to so called “kinetic” group, then it should be follow it as well. The gift color use the Ion Blaster’s in DX version.
So how does it work?
It launches watermelon at high speed (as fast as Corn Shotgun’s projectile) and it will break upon impact. Not only that, it unleash several melon seeds spreading evenly that will travel further and damage more targets.
Here’s my silly demonstartion
What’s special with the watermelon is that it has big hitbox (80px), so you might have better chance to hit any target.
Honestly, I just didn’t want to make the Bubble a weapon you can easily spam to kill enemies. Basically I want it to be a balanced weapon, but with its splitting mechanic, I thought it might become troubling to find a good compromise to it, since I don’t want it to be the next “Old Utensil Poker” (I’m very happy that Overdrive is a thing now), but neither do I want it to be something that would go extremely underused. As for the watermelon weapon idea, it’s a great idea and I’d love to see it in the game at a later point in time.
