    The Newton launcher compared to the other T weapons is very weak and situational. The Mp7: an upgraded version of any other weapon due to its high dps and silencer, in total very useful for any player. Dragonuv: silenced sniper very useful for long ranged maps for players who like sniping, very useful.
    Gauss Rifle: Super useful weapon and great for any type of player, pretty much an RPG. Silenced Pistol: kind of shit but this isnt a buff silenced pistol thread, really no reason to use this weapon. Knife: with upgrade very op, easy one hit kill and you can get away with a lot when used carefully, very useful.

    Newton launcher: Can launch players far with very tiny damage dealt, fun to use but no reason to use it in any situation. A grenade is better. A buff would look like an upgraded launch and the charged launch (when you hold m2) should do more damage or something. Make the thing useable. Sometimes if you launch somebody they barely move and sometimes they go very far. I want it to make you always go very, very far.
    In total I really hope someone does something to the newton launcher so it is as good as the other weapons. Right now it is only practical in very specific situations and it barely works then.

    That being said the thing is still fun just not something you will use to help yourself and your team win.
     
  3. Now that I think about it, they really should buff the newton launcher, it requires some timing and good aim, if you hit someone but they don't go flying then why even use it for what it's probably meant for?
    I like this idea.

    I think the Newton launcher could be a lot more fun if its launches were more powerful.

    My old community, it was OP as fuck, it was almost gurantee kill unless you got lucky with some water.

    It was fun. The current launcher is too W E A K. Half the time it seems like someone just threw a piece of fucking lettuce at them.

    newton launcher is nice to mess around and have some fun with but if you are trying to use it tactically to knock people off.
    or something you will probably have more luck with a discombob it would be cool if it could make people go farther or do a bit more damage but i do like this idea so

  7. if they can't buff the damage or push range, atleast make the shooting time like WAAAY shorter then.

    The difference between the newton launcher and discombob is range and accuracy, and the newton launcher wins in both categories

    This. Also, why change something that has been working for a decade? Newton Launcher has always been like this, and should stay this way. I've killed a lot of people with Newton Launchers, they are just very situational. If they are on a roof and by a ledge, it will kill them. They are fine the way they are.

    Now, if you want to complain about anything, complain about knives being two-hits on Vanilla, which should be one, like every other vanilla server out there. Knives on this server are worse than anything. Unless... you don't want people to use knives. I guess harpoons are already one hitters, but it was more fun knifing a person within a huge crowd without knowing who did it, because it was concealed well. Knives were really fun being one-hit. Not sure why they are two-hits on this server. Knives being one hit added more to the gameplay than what harpoons do. Usually, what you see happening with harpoon is that people camp inside a T room and throw harpoons through the walls. I really hate harpoons, people just wait like 2 minutes to use them, and if they miss, they wait like 2 more minutes to think what to do. While with a knife, you go in, kill someone in the crowd and say on the microphone, what the fuck just happened. It was more fun doing that shit, because it added more to the gamemode than just hiding and throwing a harpoon and getting a kill.

    Knives on Vanilla should be one hit kill

    On all other servers, you can buy the knife upgrade at least

    Just because something was used for a while doesn’t mean it doesn’t need an upgrade. The newton launcher is never picked practically and when it is in certain situations, it doesn’t even work. Buff the damn thing is what I am saying.

    Well if you consider the fact that the newton launcher is useless on a majority of maps, then of course you're not going to see it picked very often. Most maps make the newton launcher obsolete since they don't have places people can fall from and die (newton launcher in inno motel, for example). It's also not very discrete which isn't something that can be nerfed.

    imo the newton launcher is a dumb waste of credits as a T, regardless of if it's buffed or not. It's fine to fuck around with but you're gonna get blasted after a shot or two.

    I'd say the DAMAGE IS FINE.

    The launch aspect is useless on most maps. Maybe maybe the launcher lift the person slightly up so the traitor can have them clear railings they're near more easily?

    It would be better if it had a push/pull option, it's dumb if you wanted to use it on someone and it just ended up pushing your intended victim away from the ledge instead, would be nice on a map like dolls and you can pull them towards the ledge when you're on another platform.

    Yeaaah the damage is fine, I mean, no one really buys a newton launcher to try and kill someone with the damage it does.

    It's just flat out useless on most maps, since half the time it acts like you just slapped them with a piece of lettuce, charged or uncharged.

    I would love an upgrade, instead of 4 kills i might get 10 :)

    But really though, they can make the newton op by just unlocking the M2, but then it will be as good as !launch <player> now you fly halfway through the map when somebody who can use it launches you, then you will fly 2 rounds across the map. Those who have played with it like that can confirm it make it a bit op to launch people that way.

    A bit of extra damage won't hurt at all though, if you get a oopsie miss and they don't fly it would be nice if they actually lost more ten 2 hp

    Buff it a bit on eunilla and vanilla, and it should be a upgrade on modded

    It should increase the push range or add a push/pull feuture to it since the dmg is never really the concern

    i think that they should remove the charge up thing and just have the single shot have that much power
