20080404 Chainsaw!

--Sapporo 03:47, 4 April 2008 (BST)

Suggestion type
Melee Weapon

Suggestion scope

Suggestion description
Encumbrance 12%
Damage 10
Location: Mall hardware store
Base accuracy: 20%
Hand to hand combat: 40%
Ammo: fuel can for 10 attacks.

I wonder how the game has made it this long without the addition of a chainsaw. 12% encumbrance because it would have to be heavier than the can that stored the fuel. 20% base accuracy would mean that it would take an average of 25 attacks to kill a 50hp Z. When added to the AP spent searching for the 3 necessary fuel cans this would mean about 73 AP spent to kill a Z plus 3 to reload (about half the AP of an axe hitting at 10%, but would require 32% encumbrance). With hand to hand combat, the number of attacks necessary to kill the Z would be halved, but you would still have to spend around 30 turns searching for fuel, plus 1 AP to reload each time. Unlike other melee weapons, you must reload it, and unlike firearms, the chainsaw and fuel cannot be found in the same building which adds a few more AP to use and reload. Also, wouldn't it be nice if you could hear, "A loud saw cutting through bone X blocks away." With a 40% attack rate, it would also rip through 'cades. You know you want it.

Keep Votes

  1. Author Keep - Will most likely be duped, but at least I tried.--Sapporo 04:35, 4 April 2008 (BST)
  2. Keep - As promised, I will always vote for chainsaws! Now I know there's a really good one already in PR, but the thing I really like about this version is that it's loud and can be heard from a distance. (And also makes it not a complete dupe.) --Uncle Bill 05:58, 4 April 2008 (BST)
  3. Keep chainsaw today, flamethrowers tomorrow...--Airborne88Zzz1.JPGT|Z.Quiz|PSS 07:06, 4 April 2008 (BST)
  4. Keep - Who doesn't want a chainsaw? --The Gecko PKer 15:22, 4 April 2008 (BST)
  5. Keep Bzzzzzt....aah my spleen! --TerminalFailure 15:33, 4 April 2008 (BST)
  6. Keep Massively powered. Huge accuracy without needing to buy an additional skill. And completely opposite what I would do if I was designing a suggestion for a chainsaw. Might be a dupe too (though it's different than past chainsaws so I don't think so). But it's a chainsaw, so I am OH so voting for it. Shotgun in one hand, Chainsaw in the other. Ash. Housewares. Shop Smart. Shop S-Mart. YOU GOT THAT!?!?!--Tselita 17:10, 4 April 2008 (BST)
  7. Bzzt. BZZT. BZZZZTZTZTRARARARARARARARANEYOWWWWWWWW THUNK THUNK THUNK THUNK- Sorry, can't resist chainsaws. --BoboTalkClown 00:56, 5 April 2008 (BST)
  8. Keep - Cool!--Jamie Cantwel3 03:27, 5 April 2008 (BST)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill- I don't like it. -- BKM 20:22, 4 April 2008 (BST)
  2. Dupes of 2 and 3year old suggestions? Gimme a break. This thing needs to cost more AP to use. Chainsaws are fanciful and messy in the movies but completely impractical in reality.--Pesatyel 06:13, 5 April 2008 (BST)

  4. dupe - Yes it is a complete dupe. One of the previous versions was audible from a distance as well. Overpowered too. --Explodey 08:33, 4 April 2008 (BST)
  5. spadupel - spam + dupe = spadupel ... which is NOT spadoinkle... --WanYao 09:35, 4 April 2008 (BST)
