Exploding shot

I had an idea for a flag that would shoot something like a mine, then after about 1 second, it explodes into a zillion shots going in EVERY DIRECTION POSSIBLE, takes ten seconds to reload and eats up all your available shots(for fairness).

I got the Idea from a vidio clip from AFV, that had some guys launching a skyrocket, it immediatly goes downward, then it explods with colored sparks going everywhere.

I already, and someone else, already brought this up in a few other topics.

:) Here's a hint of what already exists. It starts with a "s" and has the word "wave" in it... ;)

Yeah, I know.
I was planning on normal bullets going everywhere.
But now that I think about it, you're right Tanner. :oops:

but I do like the "mine" idea. Maybe have a flag for det bombs, land mines, prox mines, trip mines, ect.

Yeah I like DJ's idea... but it's super hard to do... and the devs don't like stuff that changes some key-core components in the game.

but not like SW,

I think he wants it like a expanding ring on the ground.
So the bullets can't go in air.

and the bullets would ricochet - SW obviously dosn't. but i think it's too similar to be of any use.

i thinkk the mines thing is a way to go, though i understand it would be difficult to do and tim riker may have ruled it out, i don't know. how about mines that explode on a proximity, and when you drop the flag they all explode.

I just had an idea.

What about a quake flag? It could be like SW or something. It rumbles along the ground and doesn't ricochet. It only works on ground—if you're on top of a building, it won't go farther than the edges.

Could be a BU killer?

that's a nice idea, but i expect it's another "too much like SW" job.

i like some ideas that are on the WiKi flag suggestions:
Fly Swatter - a massive fly swatter comes out of your tank and can swat stuff in the radius of it's swing. (could be good for getting wings ;))
Cow Launcher - Your tank launches explosive cows.

Hah, I read those both, they were labled "(Goofy)".

What if you could Fly Swat the cows? LMAO! :)

Or maybe a homing pigeon or holy hand gernade? The cow idea above sounds like something from Worms (hence the other two.)>

I was just reading the flag idea list and about the cow projectile...


Does it HAVE to be a cow? :?
