The Karters' Weapon Prototype Lab (new content!)
Hello everyone,

I would like to introduce you to our new Weapon Lab where we test out our newest weapons of (kart) destruction. These are mostly prototypes that will be great additions to our already deadly The Karters' arsenal.

Here's our newest prototype with animated weapon effects:

We will constantly update this thread with new weapons, so come back and check for new content!

So, what do you think about our new and improved Hammer weapon?

hmm....

- Does the missle will follow the track automatically, or just go straight?
- Can hit someone? if yes, it stun a player? (unable to control your kart for a few seconds)
- For how much time the missle can stay on the track?
- Can be used Backwards?
- It does emit any sound?
- Is there a way to avoid being hit?

Costa,

- The missile will follow the track.
- After using all of its lighting attacks it will hit the nearest player like a normal bazooka, stunning them.
- ^
- No, the missile cannot be fired backwards.
- Currently, no. But it will have sound effects later on.
- If you are really far away the missile will not hit you and you can avoid the missile by using a Shield.

Please note, that these are prototypes that we really enjoyed creating and their final design may change :)

Great questions!

Feel free to post your own suggestions and opinions on our prototype weapons.

The thunder image/effect used around the ball doesn't really fit with the other textures imo

Trakan Holst,

As we said, these are prototypes which will probably be changed in some way or another. Time will tell which weapons will be present in Early Access and/or in Final release.

We have a lot of ideas, but we take your word very seriously, so do not hesitate to post anything you might consider useful or something you would want in The Karters.

Will do :)

I'm not sure the propulsion effects on the Tesla Rocket should be quite so "electrical".
I've also had a look at the other weapons on your YouTube channel, and I think that the Hammer and the Tesla Rocket are just a bit too brightly coloured.
Also, I have a suggestion in regards to animations: I think it would look a bit better if the smaller characters' arms and upper bodies would tremble when picking up large weapons.
But otherwise, good stuff.

Unclekrusty,

Good suggestions regarding the design and animations. Right now we are focused on bringing the weapons and we will try to adjust the animations later on. As far as the Hammer and Tesla being too bright - are you sure? In our studio they are pretty light, but they fit the world of The Karters. However, if need be we might adjust the brightness level :)

Thanks for your feedback!

New weapon in development!

Also, we are happy of how the Portal has been received on Twitter - 93 likes! Thank you!

For those who hadn't seen our little time jump: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=726878873

What do you think, do you see any additional uses during a race?
unclekrusty Jul 20, 2016 @ 1:22am 
Just to clarify, does this portal teleport you further ahead during a race?
Pawel Jul 20, 2016 @ 1:29am 
Unclekrusty,

Exactly, the portal will teleport you a medium distance so you can snatch that win or avoid a projectile!
TrakanPGM Jul 20, 2016 @ 4:29am 
Pretty cool, congrats
Pawel Jul 20, 2016 @ 4:37am 
Trakan Holst,

Thanks! We are pleased with our weapons. And now we added the Burning Oil weapon, check it out!

What's happening when entering fire?
unclekrusty Jul 20, 2016 @ 5:57am 
And I suppose in battle arenas, the portal will just teleport you somewhere else on the map?
Does the portal last for the rest of the race, or is it for a single use only?

Also, I like the Burning Oil.
Pawel Jul 20, 2016 @ 5:57am 
Trakan Holst,

When you enter the fire the kart will be slowed for a short while. It's a good weapon when you are leading as other players will have to watch out and dodge the line of fire.

Unclekrusty,

In normal racing modes the portal will stay for a few seconds, then disappear - so one use only. As for Battle Arena, we are considering that the portal would throw a player up in the air, though it is an early concept ;)
