Any ideas are welcome for new games, and I may turn this into a collaboration if i get more ideas.
Without further ado, lets get on!
Step 1: Choosing your weaponry
1 weapon: Try to choose an all-purpose weapon, it should really have a mag, and/or a grenade launcher, and I would recommend the storm 223 for this job
2 weapons: choose an assault rifle for this, and I usually choose either a sniper rifle or a pistol as well. A sniper rifle is long range, and accurate, so if your objective or base is inside the house upstairs, then you can snipe from the window. the pistol is small and easily concealable, and can pack fair power while still being light weight. I would use my tj-sr-v14 for a sniper or IAC's Spiff pistol for these.
3 weapons: Choose a sniper rifle, an Assault rifle and a pistol.
4 weapons: Choose a sniper, an assault, a pistol and either a shotgun or a grenade for now. Shotguns and grenades can both hit many people at once, however grenades are smaller. i would use the J5 barricade shotgun and 2 blue connectors with red connectors slotted in loosely for a grenade
5 weapons: Choose a Sniper, an Assault, a Pistol, a shotgun and a grenade.
6 weapons: Choose a Sniper, an Assault, a Pistol, a shotgun, a grenade and either a machine gun or another pistol. Use a light machine gun like a powerful small gatling gun.
7 Weapons: Choose a Sniper, an Assault, a Pistol, a shotgun, a grenade, a machine gun and another pistol.
8 weapons: Choose a Sniper, an Assault, a Pistol, a shotgun, a grenade, a machine gun, another pistol, and either another grenade or an assault knife.
1. if you carry too many large guns, it will be hard to move, so stock up on grenades and pistols if you have trouble.
2. For 1 or 2 weapon games, you dont have many guns, so make sure they are good and versatile.
3.For some games, particularly CTF, you will need soldiers suited to different jobs. The weapons used must reflect this.
4. Only use guns like I am Canadians heavy cannon if the other team has one and is prepared to get hurt, and if so, go OUTSIDE!
5. in a knex war, nobody cares what type of trigger you have, use a block trigger if the gun is your style.
Weapon Limitationsyou can put limits on your weapons, such as a ban list or originality rule. The ban list is basically a list of knex guns that cannot be used in the game. Originality is where players must design their own guns to use in a war. Other rules include a part limit (it can use a certain amount of these parts), a gun type limit (ex, assault rifles only), a minimum range and power stat, and a maximum power and range stat (not to be used with minimum range and stat).
Here are some very good guns to use in a war situation and why
I am canadian's Spiff pistol. It has good range, takes a humunganormously low amount of pieces and is one of the most reliable guns i have ever made.
I am Canadian's Heavy cannons (any of them). Huge and deadly, will scare people without having to fire it, and fires well too. *note*- may be banned from wars
My Storm 223. It is reliable and functions well.
BBKWG. Bakenbitz' war gun. It's all in the name.
Killerk's Pistol. Yes, a basic pistol is good for use. Make a stock of these (lol). It is easy to load and fire and never misfires.
My Storm 220 V2. Reliable and easy loading, and good range too.
AR-4 v3. Reliable, and it really does fire well.
DJ Radio's Jackal v4- reliable, and has removable mags for faster reload.
You get the idea. You need reliability as well as range and accuracy.
