Weapon Ideas

Post by Nomaru on Wed 21 Jan - 17:18

So I had an idea for a weapon that you guys could implement into Nova (or even SAO because the anime never gives a definitive list of weapons). Think gauntlets with blades attached. The blade could be fullmetal alchemist style, wolverine style, or even knuckles from Sonic. The actual gauntlet could be used to parry attacks while the blade would allow for damage. This would be a weapon for people who'd prefer hand to hand combat (especially throws and grapples that someone couldn't do without a weapon in hand). It's diversity would be countered by the fact that the gauntlets would take the place of gauntlets for armor, meaning that you could choose to equip the gauntlets to increase attack power or regular gauntlets for defense. What do you guys think? Any different weapon ideas?

Sorry for the repeat post, but you could also do the same thing with boots.

the actual amount of people with the reflexes for that is too slim for it to be effective

I don't know. As someone whose fought with both a sword and hand-to-hand IRL I can say that I, personally, would fight better with these gauntlet-weapons. I'd agree with you if you couldn't use the gauntlet to block and parry (which would take up most of your forearms). If you're fast enough you could close in on most one handed weapons quickly, you could grab and control the shaft of most two-handed weapons (spear/2-handed axe). A two handed sword would be tough, but you might be able to use your speed to your advantage and close in quickly. Most weapons are nearly impossible to use at point blank range.

So basically a variation of katars, yes? Also for a weapon idea, scythes and/or "The Mithril Pebble of Pig Smiting". If you don't get the reference then go watch This.

I do not know about the gauntlet and boot blades but scythes seem reasonable, especially since the Fatal Scythe boss will need one. Maybe he can even drop a smaller version of his scythe for the winner to use. As for the rock throwing, should be an easy thing to add ability to pick up rocks and throw them at enemies for small amounts of damage. Rocks would likely only spawn on lower floors though.

I guess what I'm really looking for is a way to transfer my IRL skills in hand to hand combat (through martial arts) into the game. IDK. Maybe I'll just use something long range (like a spear) and drop it once someone gets too close.

As long as it has enough forearm plating to allow the player to parry w/out using the actual blade, any kind of glove works

For your fyi, all you need to know is that the end of the gloves are pointed sharp. There are knuckle slashers i call them. Has long forearm protection. The gloves are made of leather with steel spaced apart evenly to allow the leather to bend offering good mobility and weight.
Also this was a quick sketch by the way.

So I was going through google images and found this.  This is almost exactly the kind of think I was thinking about for the weapon (especially his arms).  Just posting this if a clear image makes it more likely for Argus to put them in one of their games Wink

If you were going to link a picture then linking the picture didn't work. I'm very much interested on what you found on the internet Razz

Very much better, the only probably I have wrong with it is that the blade looks like its too curved. If you were to accidentally move in the wrong way you could chop off your own leg.

Maybe. I'd have them be shorter, personally, but the same idea still stands. A blade that leaves the hands free and protects the forearm with some kind of mini shield.

Saber like this?

That's a one-handed curved sword.

Can we have a weapon kind of like Nomaru's but with spikes on your knuckles and the one in the picture, maybe a large spike coming out of your elbow area that is fitted so you don't cut yourself by accident
