New Cannon Ideas for v1.3



  • Alex, what have you been smokeing?

    sniper3 and quick4 are close to if not the actual cheapest full upgrade weapons in the game, and have been proven to be the best 2.
  • Omega Cannon
    Fires Whatever Multiple Cannon Types You Have When You Choose It
    Combined Damage/Speed/Power Of All Cannons
  • You don't wanna know. :P
    Besides, for a sniper 3 or quick 4 to be fully useful you need a lot of them, which can cost a lot. The Mega-Fusion would only cost $3000 and you wouldn't need a lot of cannons to make it useful, since there'd be no point...
  • black hole cannon

    speed-always up
    sucks ants into it and they die

    Dark saint I already made a Black Hole Cannon.

    Alex_M. Dec 29th 2007:
    Gravity Cannon
    Pulls ants towards turret- shots from other cannons pull in too.
    Heavy/Heavy 2/Heavy 3/Gravity
    I dunno where I got this from. :P

    Black Hole Cannon
    Slowly pulls in ants to their death. They can't break free of its grip- only one is allowed at a time.
    DEATH/150/5/2 (pulling speed)
    Heavy/Impact/Impact 2/Black Hole
  • Although the balancing of the weapons is the first priority in my opinion, this is a topic about new additions so here is a few ideas I had.

    I couldn't really think of guns/weapons the game doesn't have that wouldn't be just stupid. But some possible affects which the game doesn't have that could possibly be useful:

    Knockback - The rocket launcher needs this.
    Stun - Maybe for the Electric gun or the Sonic Pulse.
    Complete Movement impairment - . . . Just listing all the ideas I had.

    Here are some of the gun ideas that are kind of stupid.

    Anyone play Starcraft II? (I hope the answer is yes) Remember the Zerg defense tower which launches a spike into the ground to attack its enemies? That would be an intersting gun in this game. It could have a slow rate of fire, nice damage, and great range.

    Something that shoots arrows. The arrows would stick in the ants until death or for a period of time and cause a speed reduction effect. Not as much the ice but something like .1-.2 inches slower if it has an arrow in it.

    A long distance DoT gun.

    A nuke. Something that only shoots maybe once every 4 secs. The projectile then travels off screen then finally lands with a very, very large explosion (maybe with knockback? How about some stun or DoT?).

    A gernade launcher. It would shoot a rolling projectile (low speed and if ant got in the way it would set if off prematurely), do nice damage with AoE.

    A magnifying glass. When an ant got within range, a magnifying glass would pop out of the turret and start to deal damage. The damage dealt would have to follow a non-linear, steep curve.

    A turret that is a shoe. When it ant comes within range it starts to hop to it. . . And. . . What I said they were stupid!

    Bug Spray - Make a cloud over an area which ants will not traverse over for some amount of time.
    Jelly Spill - Causes ants to lose friction over an area (with it the ability to change direction) for some time.
    Sprinkler - Puddles an area which gives ants great fear and if they do travel into it they travel at a very slow speed in random directions.
    Sugar Cube - Places sugar on the map which is the same as Cake to the ants. Except when an Ant does pick it up: they gain speed, health, and the sugar dissapears.
    Arsenic - Places a small pill on the map which is the same as Cake to the ants. Except when an Ant does pick it up: they slow down, take DoT, have an aura that affects nearbye ants as well and the Arsenic dissapears.

    Items would be interesting. New guns would be appropriate only if they weren't closely related to other guns. New effects would be nice. I think knockback would be great for some of the big punch weapons like rocket launchers. But first and foremost I would love to see a rebalancing of at least the monetary side of the game.
  • I wouldn't want to change the fundementals of the game but maybe a gun that has random effects.
    Flame, ice, poison effct 66% chance stop moving 10% move in to weapon fire 3% instant daeth 1% and return cake 1%! Without recovering health agin!
    And a fissur causing weapon that slows, hurts and makes the ant hav a chance to los the cake but still liv.
    And maybe we can hav online play wre we can b the ants vs a human who has the turrets! We can thn buy ant upgrades! Yeah... on second thot that might ruin the game. Keep it th same but still upgrade it plees!

    Maybe we need new turrets?Rite at the start we can choose regular turrets or another type. Agin I don't want to hange the basic phisics of the gam cuz that would ruin it. It's about as good as a game you would play on some console. And on the subjuect of completely changing the game. How bout a HUGE queen ant! And worms that r slow but redirect fire from your gun or spiders thatr fast but can b tripped or loos life when a leg is lost!

    But maybe we sould have a weapons chart and that we should be able to have a quick buy. I'll explain. Sumtimes I forget whre th tesla coil is so maybe w could buy it and them put it on a quick upgrade button. We don't actually use the other #s rite? So we have a 400$ ice ray turret so we out that on this upgrades menu from th little turret as 508$ (thats heavy cannon+impact cannon+icebeam) so we don't waste $ trying t find a good weapon.

    Love the Arsenic Wheatsolo! But I came up with the Nuke Cannon first. Maybe the Sugar Cube could have a drawback and they lose speed afterwards for an equal amount of time the sugar exists?

  • rice cannon 4

  • Fix the ants that hit 0 and dont die, fix the cake dissapearing at the hole as they enter the hole, fix the cake dissapearing if the ant picks up the cake teh same time a kill shot hits it before asking for new weapons.

    How about making the heavy weapons more effective than the sniper weapons as in more dmg output to make them more competitive, or at least a bit quicker. Seems the game only allows for the use of ice, snipers or quicks, the rest of the stuff is only good for level 70 and below.

    No more new guns till the ones we got now are effecitve.
