Pyro Weapon idea : "Liquid nitrogen gun"
Gentlemen
Hello there. For quiet some time i´ve got this unique idea for a new weapon for the pyro
like the title says it will be based around liquid nitrogen.
I thought of it like a mix between Natasha and the Spycicle
In other words while you attack your enemies with it they´ll slow down and if you kill them they´ll turn into ice statues

As for the specs i thought about :
+ = Longer reach
- = No airblast

What do you think ? :)

you may need a another minus becuase that sounds very stron g of a weapon, like less ammo aswell as no airblast :D
Lysander Sep 22, 2013 @ 10:39am 
well MAYBE :O but i think no airblast is punishment enough haha

It is a really good idea. I would sujjest nerfing it a bit though, something like lower ammo capacity would be good, also making it so it does not work on pyros. Something like slowing the pyro down a little would work as well.

Allright then what about this :
+ = slows down all classes but not the pyros
+ =longer reach
- = no airblast
- = 25% less ammo

Wtf?
The Pyro is a pyromaniac,liquid nitrogen is basically the opposite of lava,nitrogen's the opposite of fire.
The Pyro's meant to be a pyro,not a (possibly) human fridge.

This is what I would say about the stats:
+Slows target while in stream and a few seconds after (like burning from a fire, but it would slow the enemy instead of damaging him)
+Longer reach
+Can extinguish burning teammates
+If you hit a cloaked spy, you could see some "smoke" from the liquid nitrogen on the spy
-No Airblast
-Less damage
-Afterfreeze (being slow after being in the stream of liquid nitrogen) can be healed by medics

Strategy: slow target with cannon until in meelee range, then go nuts with the axe

P.S. With the liquid nitrogen cannon equipped, he should have a different backpack or something (like a fridge)

that sounds neat :) i also thought about that Pyros will get less damage too
so less damage in general and o pyros even less

True, but in pyroland he might be.

Wut?
As seen in one of TF2's comics,without fire,Pyroland is just a world of brown stuff and ugly-looking 2D people.

Just sayin'
The Pyro was using fire and generally bein' his wicked self in the first vid.

And that wasn't really Pyroland in the second vid,that was just an artificial projection of it caused by the Pyrovision Goggles,if the player wasn't wearin' the Pyrovision Goggles they wouldn't see the map like the Pyro does,they would see it as if it was bein' seen through the eyes of regular person.
You don't fool me.
