Grappling Hook

Post by Nomaru on Mon 2 Feb - 15:01

Just as the title says.  I was wondering if you guys could implement a grappling hook into your games.  It would hook into the ground (stop moving) after a set time of scraping along the ground (probably about 3/4 of a second) and could then be used to climb with.  You could either pick it up to detach it, or perform some kind of physical action (like yank on the rope) if you were on the bottom.  I think it would be a big help for the more acrobatic, ninja type of character or for giving more 3d maneuverability to players who can't climb up walls assassin's creed style.

Actually it wouldn't be op. The player must have a lot of skill in order to swing the grappling properly and even then. they have to fight with it.

I have a picture of the 3D manuver gear from AoT, and to be honest it would only be usefull in forests and areas with large buildings

I mean if you say other games, thats fine, but in sao, it wouldn't be appropriate, I commented that because I thought SAO was the context. I mean, having grappling hooks in sao would be op. Imagine people using it in boss fights, I think sao should made and implemented the same it is in the anime, which is human will power and emotions, stuff like grappling hook would just be inappropriate, dont you think so

I was thinking more of a basic rope with a hook on the end.

And to Masterguy, even if you do manage to get a hook on the boss you wouldn't be able to control it because the bosses are so much more powerful than a single player. If you try to use the hook to climb up the boss, you will be open to an easy counterattack (you'd just be dangling from a rope). I guess it would have some combat use, especially against human sized opponents, but that will require skill with the hook to accomplish. I am with you that it was never shown in the anime, and if it makes SAO no longer feel like SAO, then I'm with you, but i'm not sure how much it will really change the game systems, since it only has use in a small number of areas or with players who have a lot of skill using it.

Actually, thinking about the boss fights, a high strength user might be able to control a boss somewhat with a hook, but that would be more of the "willpower" think you were talking about. Imagine standing your ground, playing a deadly game of tug-of-war with a monster three times your size, trying to keep it's attacks at bay until your allies could finish killing it. That would take a lot of willpower.

I like the idea, but I'm a bit 50/50 on this. I feel like it doesn't belong in SAO, but at the same time, it's a nice addition, and an interesting one, at that.

True, I just don't see grappling hooks in the game. It may be possible to make in the game on your own if you want by possibly getting rope and by making a hook to add onto the rope. But I just don't see and grappling hook as items in the game.

My reasoning: I came to play SAO, not SAO with people starting to play AoT builds lol.
This won't be like attack on titan. I'm thinking something like the grappling hook in the new Far Cry, nothing that reals you in. In combat (if somebody's good enough to use it), it would be more like a rope dart than 3d movement gear. This is based on the actual item, not an anime.

There's a lot more technique to something like that then people realize. Even if you have the brute strength to do it, it's really hard (this is coming from my experience in Parkour). Plus the rope would give you more maneuverability. Someone about to hit you as you're climbing, jump off and throw the rope. You could also use it places where there aren't any handholds

Wow, a perfect distribution (except the lonely SAO column). I was not expecting that.
