I don't know about anybody else on these forums, but personally I would love to see some different Hand Weapons. And I'm not just talking about the shovel or the Club, I'm talking about some serious cool hand weapons disguised as pick-up kits through-out the map, so we have something to use once our ammo runs dry.

I'm talking about: Wooden Boards, Broken rifles, Rocks (throwing), The occasional Axe or Hatchet in the base, or even the weapons your carrying. Once I run out of ammo for my pistol, why can't I start hitting people with it?

I just think there should be some random objects scattered throughout the field. I mean, c'mon, who has not wanted to throw a brick from one of the destroyed buildings at their foe?

good idea for a game, but not necessarily for the bf2 engine. picking up a new kit to throw a stone is kinda weird.

A side-by-side shotgun kit in a cabin somewhere would be fun. Taking this too far wouldn't.

sorry Archimonde... If magically three people popped out from the blue with ready models, textures, animations, sound and codes for those weapons, perhaps they'd be added for fun. At the moment "small" things like say..maps, playermodels, and stuff like that sort of takes priority..

Whenever FH2 is finished, and the whole dev & test team can just sit back and go "piiiuuuuh, there, it's finally done" then, maybe, those things would be considered.. but only then.

This is not a flame, because I too would like that.. but many people (roughly 80% of the suggestions on this forum) is from people who (really, and truly) think that a mod is like, some guys sitting at a computer not knowing what to make, and just sort of scrambles something funny together a few nights for fun.. "hmm what should I add today? well I just press the "create melee weapon" button i Editor and there it is"

Im not saying you are one of these guys, just that many people just look at the word "mod" and think its just opening some file in wordpad or photoshop and "mod" stuff, then it works. Those people annoy me, that's why I needed to make this post. From now on everybody is forbidden to use the word mod, from now on its "Total Conversion" which in truth is what fh2 is.

Some new pick up kits would be alright. But I think there will already be alot of pick up kits in Normandy (Winchester, StG44 Scope) and in current FH2 there are already alot of pickup kits, Sniper, LRDG, Ammo, MG's, AT rifles. A shovel would be ok but I think a plank is a bit too far :p

A rifle and pistol kit would be awesome. Good for both long and short ranges.

I wonder if the StG will be widely available in Normandy. Like if you can spawn with it on any maps or if its just a pickup kit like in FH1 in Normandy. Well, with the FH2 kit limiting system the whole team wouldn't be running around with them atleast.

ctz is coding [COLOR=Blue]Insult Swordfighting[/COLOR] now so we can verbally abuse eachother to death. Last I heard, the Maus will have a speaker-system so you can drive around the battlefield, blasting them so everybody hears. :smokin:

Kev raises an interesting point about the StG44. I don't suppose too many units in Normandy pre-August 30th had them on standard issue, were they not prioritised for the Eastern Front? My guess is a few pickup kits and maybe a more heavily limited 'Assault' class instead of the MP40.

I hardly think this, considering I am a Modder myself, the point is while small Ideas like these may seem insignificant, in my experience, its the very small things that get noticed, and are the most fun.

Hell, gimme a few months to get my new PC, and I'll make them.
