Since greek fire was suggested as a weapon in the civil war, and the game already has it in the form of the liquid fire bomb, a plunger style flamethrower similar to the type used by the greeks would be a fun addition for flushing people out of their flammable dwellings.
Also, I am a huge fan of double rifles, which is why I am going to ask you to either rework or add a new version of the Nitro. I honestly do not think it is OP, rather it's underpowered by ammo limits, awful sights, and a weird damage falloff for the sake of MAYBE oneshotting to the chest. I would rather have a 2-shot sparks that costs as much as a mosin, as an alternative to the current long rifle ammo weapons. Maybe sell a different Nitro with a lower calibre and no peep sight?
I would like the ability to use slugs in shotguns as the range makes them pretty much unusable if you're not directly next to them. So maybe you can buy different ammunition and you can swap them in-game, such as you may want to use buckshot if you are in CQB but if your target gets away and you have them insight you can swap to your slugs and send him flying. I know you could just swap to your pistol but in situations where time is of an essence or you just simply want to use your shotgun because it's more powerful.
This weapon would take up a weapon slot. Medium or Large depending on ballance. Single use per match.
When planted, Hunter has 30-60 seconds to get clear. This bomb has a large blast radius, and can be heard clear across the map.
Not sure if this would kill a Boss in its radius. By that extent, not sure if you'd have to replenish between matches like any other consumable.
Just a thought to tweak with.
DERINGER STYLE TOOL. NO RELOAD. LOW DAMAGE. BASED ON GUYCOT PISTOL. (PICTURE IN LINK)
Costs more than simple Deringer. About 40-50 $
Highest fire rate out of all pistols.
Lowest damage out of all weapons, about 17-20 dmg.
No instant headshot, rather 3 headshots kill
Evans Repeating Rifle, Krag-Jorgensen, Spencer Repeating Rifle
A grappling gun as a Hunter gadget.
Allows players to climb up roofs to attack from unexpected positions.
An 1800th century’s fictional flame thrower prototype.
- Would fit your art style/theme.
- Would add a certain variety and originality to your weapons.
- It bursts out fire... I mena, come on.
- Could very easily be used by devs to manipulate meta of gun fights.
Harpoon gun (you decide how it works)
1871 Martini-Henry Service Rifle. Same action as the Sparks LLR, but maybe give it different stat balances. Alternatively, have it a single shot variant of the Nitro, with Special Ammo. This could make it harder to Two-Shot-Wipe duos.
How about prototype of the prototype of weapons used on first world war?
It isn't that far fetched, cuz' it was at 1918.
- Remington Model 8, [large slot]
Semi-automatic, rapid fire, medium range
- M1908 Rifle [large slot]
Semi-automatic, Rapid fire, medium range
- Sawed off Winfield "Mare's Leg" [medium slot]
Winfield with less range and control, but slighy more rate of fire than the standard version.
-Blunderbuss with wide bore [medium slot]
Black powder weapon, high damage, devastating at short range, causes severe bleeding, trigger delay.
-Repeating crossbow [large slot]
8 bolts, medium range & rate of fire, slow reload.
-Longbow [large slot]
Medium/long range, cost stamina
-Recurve bow [large slot]
Medium/short range. Faster ROF and less stamina consumption than the longbow.
-Bar mace [medium slot]
Short range and blunt damage
-Nailed baseball bat [large slot]
Blunt and piercing damage.
-Blowgun with tranquilizer darts
1st dart causes blurry vision and slow movement.
2nd dart causes blackout
Effect of traquilizer dart can only be annuled with stamina shot
*This is a repost of another comment I made becuase I found more guns*
I have now played the game for about 100h and I have to say that I am in love with it. The one thing that I'm a little dissapointed about would be the selection of guns.
Don't get me wrong, the guns that are already in the game are nothing short of amazing, they fit right into this post-apocalyptical Louisiana; but there isn't alot of variety. To try and help the developers I've put together a list of guns that would fit both the time period and the atmosphere.
I will also provide links so you could see the guns and judge for yourself if it fits into the game.
-The Roper Revolving Shotgun/ Colt 1855 Revolving Shotgun
-The McCarty Turret Gun/Turret Revolver
-LeMat Buckshot Service Pistol
-Guycot Chain Pistol
-Springfield 1898 (Krag)
-Porter Turret Rifle
-Harmonica Pistol (There is no specific one)
-von Steiger Auto-Ejecting Revolver
-Cochran Turret Revolver
-Rast & Gasser M1898
-The Sauer Bär Pistol
-Mars Automatic Pistol
-Maxim Silverman M1896
-Volcanic Repeating Pistol
-The Greene Carbine
-Martini Henry M1871
-Savage 1861 Navy
-Ketchum Hand Grenade
-The Gibbs Carbine
-The Modele 1886 Lebel
And my personal favourites:
The Walch Revolver
That's it, for now anyway, but I've only grazed the surface of all the crazy gun designs that are out there.
I really do hope the developers take a look at these and contemplate adding some more guns into the game. I also want to thank everyone else on these forums trying to help the developers, you are truly a great community and deserve to be recognized.
I'll see you lads in Louisiana; Happy Hunting ;)

I love the era and the types of weapons already in game, but some more choices would be really awesome and add some more variety in playstyles.
Rifles such as...
-Gewehr 71 (Mauser Model 1871) Era Friendly and had lots of different variations from carbines, single shot, box and tube magazines.
- Lee Metford, Rifle, had lots of varients.
- Fusil Gras Modèle 1874 M80, Rifle, also lots of varients.
- Lefaucheux 20-Round, pistol that has a cool concept.
- Webley Bulldog, revolver
These are just a few, the time period has so many unique weapons, I think that adding some in would add to the atmosphere and allow for some unique mechanics/playstyles.
A melee halberd like weapon, with a shorter shaft(so it seems reasonable for a hunter to be carrying around), that takes a large weapon slot. Could slash with quick swing and stab with charged attack.
1860 Spencer Carbine, it's a lever action repeater. It is definitely a downgrade from a Winchester (Winfield) but would be cool to have in the game. Since it is a downgrade it could be a low level unlock. It is a bit smaller than the Winfield Compact, so it might get away with becoming a medium weapon. The hammer must be cocked manually after each round as the lever doesn't **** the hammer as it cycles back. The way it is loaded would also take longer than the typical loading gate you'd have to deal with on the other prominent rifles of the game. The internal magazine is kept inside the stock. The video below shows how it was loaded. Modified version of the Spencer Carbine could also work. Such as making the stock even smaller as well as the barrel so it makes more sense to be a medium weapon. Either way, it is just a cool piece of history and it was a popular firearm in it's day.
Mares leg winny as medium weapon
And make the non-axe sawn off romero a small weapon please!
more general weapon varieties not just more versions of the same weapons that fulfill the same roll.
nagant carbine = winfield C with a different look basically
combat axe should perform differently than the saber/machete since it fills a medium slot....you should be able to throw it imo without the tomahawk perk.
throwing tomahawks: i would like a secondary weapon option to be 2-4 tomahawks that you can actually throw. originally i was under the impression that the combat axe was going to be a weapon you could actually throw and was very disappointed when i realized that you cant even throw it with the tomahawk perk which makes no sense. not only can you not throw the combat axe, but it takes a medium slot which imo is pointless when you can use a saber or a machete in a small slot and are probably just as effective if not more so.
caldwell revolver and uppercut: i would like to see the long barreled pistols have a bayonette option.
