Flaming Crossbow Pistol

@Vane why do the hunter weapons get all the incendiary love? I know there's the flare gun and winter flare gun but if you're going to offer a crossbow pistol then why can't you make it more like its hunter version big brother? What I have created below would be a fantastic shooter weapon very much in-line with the hunter versions available. So since it is shooter week, why not bring the idea forward?

P.S. I had suggested to @Kaz several times a great bruiser weapon would be Morgan's Staff with gold razor/concussion with silver tactical. I have it and it is a fantastic combo. I hope the sales were good (I'd buy it again). I think this shooter weapon would be a revenue generator too.

    Cool, this makes me wanna make a tier of specialty weapons, like S-Tier would be the 4 trait weapons; Scoped 9mm, Bow, Flaming Crossbow.

    So today as I excitedly perused the Bundle Shop, scrolling across the offers....2, 3, 4....7 and there it is! The Marksman Bundle with the weapon I had been requesting. I opened the bundle and tapped to see the weapon traits only to see....wah wah wah waaaaaah. It was only the Crossbow Pistol, completely absent of flames. I kind of felt like this:



    @Vane you guys need the revenue. Make this one happen.

    Flaming crossbow weapon...it’s called the flare gun..
    Guts & Glory, not always in that order.

    Yeah and I’d be happy with a flare gun in the bundle shop. Only time I’ve seen it recently is where it’s bundled with loads of other weapons but the other weapons have random traits!

    I'd rather they added a summer bow, same traits and added tactical/silent shot with the built in passive fire damage that it's big brother flaming crossbow has on top. Make it happen!

    That's like saying the Flaming Crossbow is the same as the Explosive Prison Rifle.

    1. 4 trait weapon vs. 3 trait weapon
    2. Passive incendiary not impacted by luck vs. Incendiary trait impacted by luck

    Plus the weapon traits in the Flaming Crossbow Pistol above give out maximum amount of charged damage for a high powered shooter weapon.

    @WellyLuga , yeah I'd take that bow That would be special x2!.

    I still think this is a great idea. I wonder if anyone at NG ever saw this?

    Flaming crossbow will be silence? If not, rocket gun same thing but with different traits?
  • CronusCronus Member Posts: 1,090
    Flare gun only has 3 traits and flaming crossbow will have 4 with passive incendiary (45%). If the silver and gold traits are what I did in my illustration in original post then that weapon will be very useful.

    I really want to see the traits however I have to give NG credit. This is twice —> https://forums.nextgames.com/walkingdead/discussion/38701/morgans-tactical-staff

    I'm hoping it has the same traits it's big brother flaming crossbow. High powered, piercing and destructive. Gold charging would be really nice in place of destructive.

    I think I will be buying it regardless.

    I am inclined to agree with @WellyLuga , tho I'm not sure about charging. Maybe. I like the winter bow / F-xbow combo of range~area/destructive/piercing.

    Without the tactical movement and silent features of the winter bow, however, I think it would still be a secondary weapon. A strong secondary to be sure, but still.

    Agree! If the crossbow (pistol) is silent. I will definitely be buying it. But if it causes threat AND no tactical movement, I’ll probably pass

    Edit:

    @Fluxxx just made a post in the questions thread saying it WILL cause threat. Still love that new weapons are coming out so good work! But definitely disappointing there.

    I’m inclined to agree it will need silver hi-po and gold piercing given what’s coming in the next update. My original suggestion was before any change to make ranged more competitive with melee. If you need tactical/silenced then by all means use the bow. To me this fits a different category.

    Not all maps have a threat counter or gates/crates to open. Alpha will give a nice boost to crits alongside non-bodyshots so I think the need for sureshot will be lessened and therefore the same for the winter bow.

    Gold charging on a shooter weapon is really nice with piercing. If both trigger on the 1st turn you can be doing massive damage on turn 2.
