How Would You Feel About Deathslinger's Rifle Being Added?
This is for those of you who play Dead By Daylight (DBD). I think the rifle could pretty much be ported over and work great. It would be a hybrid ranged/melee weapon. Ranged when aiming and slashing otherwise. The melee couldn't deflect bolts or break armor and would be about the same attack speed as the crushing sword. IE weaker than both melee weapons at melee.
The ranged aspect has limited range (20ish meters) but can break armor/traps. After each shot you have to reel in your bolt. The advantage being that you will never run out of ammo, but the disadvantage being that you have limited range and the further your shot goes before hitting something requires longer to reload. If you hit a guards flesh then you'll begin reeling them in and have to finish them with a melee attack. This leaves you vulnerable to other attacks. No switching to other weapons or using equipment while reeling in bolt.
I personally think it would be a great fit! It has advantages in it's flexibility and limitless ammo, but plenty of vulnerabilities packed in to keep it balanced compared to other weapons.
