bombs should throw people away from the epicenter at high speeds and people should knock down and/or injure other people when they collide, i have quotes from the community to back me up here

OOC: IcePacks: picture this
OOC: IcePacks: bomb goes boom
OOC: IcePacks: the clown becomes a deadly, flaming projectile


refute that, joyless coder shitstains!

hi, yes, it seems there is a lack of people screaming about how this could ostensibly be broken, so i'll do it for you:

But Pax, people projectiles would be broke as fuck! You just grab someone, throw them, and wham! Instant stun! Stun meta!

grabbing controls are clunky as fuck there is nothing wrong with this proposal

This is one of those ideas that would be really easy to code so nobody is going to do it, you need to suggest stupid memes like peacekeepers

no literally all it does is change how carbons react to hitting other carbons

>baseball bat a motherfucker into another motherfucker
this actually does work since baseball bats throw you like normal

make it so throwing people by hand doesn't have enough speed to hurt anyone. unless: you have a new martial art style available to traitors. It would let you grab people more easily and throw them much faster.

If you get thrown out of disposal pipes that should have enough force to knock people down

Fuck that, everyone should be able to participate.
If you want speshul, let hulks be able to throw people at wall-busting velocities.

That's a good idea.

We need a special pneumatic cannon that requires a super matter bin. You can load either cuffed people or unconscious/dead people into it.

goodness gracious this escalated quickly

i'm not sure about weakens or 10 brute i honestly think it should just be a short wall/baton stun but i'm sure my tune will change with stories of furious lawmen giving tiders a taste of their own riots or kekhi fighting valids with valids

I'm pretty sure the wallthrow does 10 brute and weaken 1 too

This also adds the hilarious side-effect of making the jump boots from mining act as a charge attack against people, since that technically throws you.

A borg/Drone/Ai should deal bonus damage if used this way, and launching a facehugger into someone should make it latch onto them immediately, as well as knock them the fuck out.

Skip ahead to 37 seconds.
If people can be made projectiles, I reiterate and insist that we need those.

Well, no, those things are more like PEPS from Human Revolution.
They oughtta pack more punch but less versatility than Sci's toys.
