20070825 Bottles as Weapons V1.5

Anotherpongo 12:46, 25 August 2007 (BST)

Suggestion type
New function for existing items

Suggestion scope
Survivors with, or who find, beer or wine.

Suggestion description
Beer and wine are both pretty useless flavour items. My suggestion would add more flavour and also give them a function.

I suggest that beer bottles and wine bottles become usable as blunt melee weapons with:

  • Base accuracy 15%.
  • 3 damage.

These weapons would have a limitation: they would be one-use. Regardless of whether they hit, they would break and become the "broken bottle" — a melee weapon that would have a base accuracy of 10% and 2 damage. Really just your basic melee weapon.

  • Just to clarify:
    • Bottle of Beer/Bottle of Wine — 15% base, 3 damage, one-use
    • Broken Bottle — 10% base, 2 damage
  • These weapons would be usable by zombies.
  • These weapons would be affected by Hand to Hand Combat, but no other skills. With Hand-to-Hand Combat, beer and wine bottles would have accuracies of 30% and a broken bottle would have an accuracy of 25%.
  • They would still be drinkable, and would still heal 1HP.
  • Broken Bottles would, obviously, not be drinkable.
  • They would have no effect on barricades (but still break on them).

Changes since previous suggestion (20070823 Bottles as Weapons):

  • Bottles do 3 damage rather than 4.
  • Bottles are usable by zombies.

Keep Votes

  1. Keep - I liked it before, I like it again. --Thelightguy 13:14, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  2. Keep - A bit more flavor and variety to the game, I like. Broken dreamsTalk WT 13:26, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  3. Keep - Better this time 'round. --the one, the only, sushiknight (talk contribs HARD E.N.D.) 16:48, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  4. Keep - Decent, as last time. --Private Mark 17:07, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  5. Keep - Much better. Glenstone 18:06, 25 August 2007 (BST)

  8. Keep - Whatever I said before. --  AHLGTG 18:50, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  9. Keep - Much better than the previous version! --Vkkhamul 19:02, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  10. Keep - my vote was first in previous revision... --~~~~T''' 19:03, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  11. Keep/Change - Well done! The only thing I would suggest that you change is the damage when you hit a zombie. The damage caused by glass is mainly cutting damage; zeds aren't weakened by blood loss. So you may want to lower it a bit, but otherwise, this is great! --Hhal 21:08, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  12. Keep - Like it the way it is. --Abi79 AB 21:13, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  13. Keep - Can anyone say "Bar brawl"? -Coco1993 23:35, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  14. Keep - I loved this idea from the start--Timo 1 00:37, 26 August 2007 (BST)
  15. Keep - I liked it before, and I like it now. Well done. Park avenue 02:38, 26 August 2007 (BST)
  16. Keep love it once again.--'BPTmz 02:41, 26 August 2007 (BST)
  17. Keep - yeah, the revision made it even better. --Howard Bentley 17:36, 26 August 2007 (BST)
  18. Keep - Awesome flavor, great numbers, in no way even minorly gamebreaking, and really really cool. BoboTalkClown 22:00, 27 August 2007 (BST)
  19. Keep - You got my vote. --Sonofagun18 10:12, 28 August 2007 (BST)
  20. Keep - Finally! I can get into a Bar Fight!!! --Driaquer 05:45, 29 August 2007 (BST)
  21. Keep, but Change - This will be nice for zombies, but survivors do not need any more hand-combat weapons. --Kazakum 03:29, 30 August 2007 (BST)
  22. Keep -Make it so that someone who just drank the bottle does 4 damage due to drunken stupor or frenzy of sorts. In any case, I like it. Tryce of Thunder 05:16, 6 September 2007 (BST)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill - An intact bottle has better hit percentages and does more damage than a baseball bat? --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 19:14, 25 August 2007 (BST)
  2. Kill - Why does this need to exist? Don't encourage people to use worthless weapons when they should search for axes and knives. --Steakfish 02:21, 26 August 2007 (BST)
  3. Kill - As steakfish The preceding signed comment was added by boxy (talkcontribs) at 03:55 26 August 2007 (BST)
