The idea is inspired by I82 mod's gunshop and GC mod's map Judicator where you spawn with only a blaster pistol of some sort and you have to get to a supply area to grab a weapon from a supply crate or off a rack of blaster rifles. It adds rather great atmosphere to either game/map! This could be put to use on a map where in the real life battle it was a surprise attack, or one of the fighting forces had insufficient supplies/weapons. ex) (FH Stalingrad map) Regretfully taking idea from a movie (and a game), As a russian soldier on one side of the river you spawn with nothing, run to a table of rifles, pick one up, and set sail. Once you've made it across and captured the dock flag more rifles spawn and maybe some PPSH's too. Map map makers also control weapon distribution a little better, so theirs not 3 riflemen and 15 smg'ers. Also could give more reason for devs to make new pickup models :naughty: . jk, I love being tricked into thinking im picking up a BAR and it turns out to be a Bren.

Maybe you could make some sort of resistance fighter map, where everyone on the Allied side starts with just those one-shot Liberator pistols, and maybe one or two captured Axis kits sitting on a table in some meeting room. I have absolutely no idea how to make such a map playable and what to put in it, so disregard my idea. I just felt like mentioning the pistols.

the idea is great in stalingrad map, russians start with NO WEAPON, then cross the river, and in the other side there are some officers distributing the weapons, like in ENEMY AT THE GATES

Look, the Stalingrad map is nonsense. The Russians never lost the riverside, and this would only create massive rape.

masive rape or masive carnage, the lowest side of the "german side", at the first flag, is at the sight of the artillery, so few germs will rape without a sure death.

if u still dont believe in this, put the kits at the other side, and make the russians spawn in trucks

Also in GC they made it so the Assault Rifles are in line on a cabin and not just some pickup kits on a table/floor. This could also be a good idea so you know what type of weapon you are picking up ;)

the people with slower computers will never get a good gun. i never get the good tanks and planes already, and it stops with taking away my thompson and ppsh.

Also at stalingrad, although the russians were on the back foot, the soldiers were well equiped AFAIK. Only at barbarossa were the russians poorly armed...i think.

Prison break map where German's spawn in barracks and Allies in the cell blocks... no one has a weapon and have to run to gun racks :p Plenty for everyone mind you.

Yes this would be neat as part of a POW escape map but I'm not sure if that kind of map would be really fun or not in an FPS.
