Harpoon Rifle

Post by Asrodrig » Tue Jul 14, 2009 12:56 pm

Another idea: What about some sort of gun that shoots a harpoon? You could have a variety of different heads for your harpoon, ie. anti-infantry, breaching, explosive, so you could do different things every time.

The anti-aircraft harpoon from Waterworld. (I don't like that movie)

Ninjas with harpoons would suck.
Sometimes I play all the Elves. Sometimes I play Eldar or IG. But between school and warhammer, how's a fella supposed to eat?

You can't have anti-aircraft harpoon -.-
But you can have anti-vehicle harpoon with explosive head.

It's simple, easy to craft with the level of technology people have in Primal Horizon world and i see it as weapon people would use when they have no better weapons.

(plus, it's light so unlike having a bazooka, harpoon wouldn't slow you down when running, moving etc. and it can be deadly if the explosive charge is powerful enough to blow things up)
You primitives think you own the stars but you have no conception of what you are saying. You can barely command your own lumpen bodies, so how do you believe that you can subjugate entire worlds?

how do you plan to achieve that?
it is deadly for unarmored human, but for somebody with kevlar vest (and since it's futue they'll have far better bulletproof vests than are today) you won't do much damage with harpoon.

Put an explosive head instead of the spike, when it punches the target it detonates and you do template damage, or blast a tank or cover.

(the issue is range, harpoons don't have huge range like pistols, guns, rockets railguns etc.)
