Dropable Power-Ups

Post by hyper copter » Fri Jan 25, 2019 3:51 am

I am aware that some players will find power-ups being dropable insane; But How do you feel about this:

With new power-ups being planned, Like the "Strength Power-Up" and the "Health Item That Works As A Power-Up". I just thought: "Won't it be useful if we could share power-ups with teammates?"
And I thought of a balanced way to make power-ups dropable since you can't equip them;
And it is by simply holding the activate power-up button; By holding the activate power-up button, the power-up drops out of your hand like a grenade. You of course still press the activate power-up button to activate it. Dropped power-ups inflict 0 damage of course; And unlike other weapons, Power-Ups don't have ragdoll physics, (or whatever makes weapons look like they do) Meaning that they stick to the ground once they touch it; And they do not flip over while falling from the sky, Or downside a hill.

We actually had the same idea a while back - that holding the equip hotkey will drop any item (not just powerups). We plan to add it at some point.

im proud of this thread for being so slick without 82 people answering, but I kind of had a thought that maybe its just a team thing that you can give any of your teammates a +25 hp up once per round, (I also had an idea where u could heal yourself after 2 minutes in a match kinda like how the predator heals himself in Predator 2 just to put it out there)
