Alpha 19 Dev Diary

Recommended Posts

Are we getting A19 or A18.3 in this upcoming patch? Any hints for what's to come? :cocksure:

 

Can you elaborate on 7dtd not being an FPS and why that makes a one-hit kill weapon nonviable?

 

Wait yeah I just saw that post, how is 7DTD not an FPS?? It's first-person and you shoot. Seems like all the criteria has been met to me.

There must be a challenge, no matter the level.

YOU RELEASED SOMETHING THAT CAN NOT BE UNDONE! ideas!

 

 

AS50 , "700 nitro express" , intervention , Barrett 50.cal, L96 , Dragunov , M14 , PT-RS. thats all i can think of.

 

 

 

also maybe a mod for the hunting rifle that allows to shot a 50.cal round. for the cost of durability and recoil

 

 

AND Wears that M1A1!!

- - - Updated - - -

 

 

 

ahh mw2 the good quick scoping days

 

 

IK im immature

Well I have no criteria for it other than it "looks cool". We'll break it into pieces and put it back together again with glue, duct tape and make shift parts anyway, but having something cool as a base for inspiration would be nice.

But you'd have to be drunk on vodka to use that one.

 

How did you know my family is half Russian??

(slips 2$)

 

fine with me!

 

maybe it can be a tier 2 AR

 

like this to compare (note had to do this twice)

 

M4A1/Combat Rifle: Less Durability then AK , 3 round burst (change with mods) , 45 Shots (15 with burst)(can be changed) , More range then AK , fast Fire rate, A USA classic , Slightly Faster reload , and looks cool

 

AK47: More durability , full auto (change with mods) , 30 Shots (can be changed) , Average range , Average fire rate , a Russian Classic , Average Reload , Looks cool two.

 

plus the M4A1 has a special place in my heart due to it being the first gun iv very shot with.

 

and dat LOOK! :emmersed:

 

 

but if you guys don't want to add it that's ok too . its your game

It can always have shortcomings to make it harder. Slow reload. Sway when aiming. Expensive/rare ammo.

M60? Or is that to obvious...

 

That is a machinegun, and is the T3 machinegun already. The assault rifle will be T2 machinegun and AK47 will be the T1 machinegun.

 

The blank I'm trying to fill is here: T1 Hunting rifle, T2 Marksman Rifle, T3 something cool here.

Barrett 50. Cal? Seems like the obvious progression; just an ultimate one-shot one-kill rifle.

 

edit: wait, you probably wouldn't want to introduce a new ammo type just for one gun. There are some badass .44 Magnum lever action rifles if you want to make .44 useful elsewhere; maybe you could slot that in at T3, or bump the Marksman Rifle up and have it be a new T2? There are also many other marksman rifles like the G3SG that could fit realistically as a military gun.

If you want to stick with a 7.62 caliber go with the SAKO TRG 42. Otherwise go with the McMillan TAC-50 for .50 cal goodness.

If its that powerful it might warrant .50 cal or whatever to separate it from the other weapons. Its end game, at that point you might be crafting your own ammo anyway.

maybe the gun has a natural penetration. i mean 50.cal can go through a tank like a hot knife through butter. so imagine rotten dead people!

 

and maybe a special ammo called "50.cal HE ammo" were its like a Small explosive round (while hard to make) it can kill the biggest and meanies Zombie in just a shot.

 

 

 

sorry about me on so much. im bored.

So what is a bad ass top tier cool sniper rifle?

 

.50 cal barrett? 😂

 

- - - Updated - - -

 

Whatever is considered enough to kill any zombie in a single headshot. (Unless the zombie has multiple heads.)

 

Hahaha....multiple heads....

Well, its a reasonable survival adaptation given the abundance of high-powered firearms in the enviroment.

It actually would be cool if there was a 2 headed zombie where killing one head actually had an impact (e.g. reduces its damage output)..... 😎👍

On the other hand, it could be like the rage mechanic where the zombie gets stronger because there are no longer conflicting messages being sent.

 

Also, why stop at two heads? What about three headed Hellhounds?

As others have said, M107 .50 cal is the obvious choice. Could also do something like the AWP if you wanted to be trite, but it probably shouldn't be bolt-action. Even being magazine-fed, going from semi-auto to bolt action would feel like a downgrade, I'd wager.

 

And yeah, the M107 has APHE rounds that explode on impact, as well as the typical ball ammo. Technically their fuse isn't sensitive enough to explode on humanoid targets (without hitting body armor), but realism shmealism, right?

Rage mechanic would be too similar to what the demo brings to the table already. I'm thinking a 2 head ogre type like the Hawaiian/Cop zed....or a tall gangly 2 headed zed...😂

Badass top tier rifle for sniper class is probably M82A1.

 

Endgame weapon I mentioned many times before might be also magnetic accelerator known as railgun, and at the same time could be ascribed to perks under Intelligence.

 

A sniper rifle is not a class of weapon.

"Sniper" is a military qualification, something you have to go to a special school to earn.

Therefore, a sniper rifle is whatever rifle a qualified sniper is using.

 

Please, think of implementing someday as someone mentioned before carabines/assault/battle rifles similar to M4A1, M4, M16A2/3/4, SCAR-L, F2000, light machine gun M249SAW etc. with 5.56 caliber.

A Mime Zombie with a puppet!

 

The puppet is supernatural (inline with the supernatural theme of the game) if it's hit before the zombie carrying it is killed it will leap at the player, wrapping itself around the players head (like in the Aliens movie).

The player cant see or breath until they pull it off them by holding on the "E" key for a while.

 

Optionally, it will do 1-3 points of damage per second while its attached and if the player dies... THEY BECOME A ZOMBIE! Ether permanently or until the morning. :)

I had the same idea, but the puppeteer zombie was a poi screamer.

Making each .50 round cost 3 times the brass, lead and gunpowder sounds about right.

It's that powerful. The Barrett fires .50 BMG, the same round used by the M2 water-cooled machinegun, which *defines* heavy machine guns. It's not technically a sniper rifle, it's an anti-materiel rifle. You can shoot through the engine block of a small-block Chevy. The long way, if you're close enough. Going through a meter of reinforced concrete should be straightforward, though I doubt there'd be much left on it when it got through.

 

First link is to the Barrett M82A1 - human for scale. Second is to a round size comparison. .50BMG on the left, the 7.62x39mm is what an AK fires.
