Alright, here’s an idea…and please don’t confuse the Needleshot with Needler from Halo.
Imagine a new gun in Gears…a Swarm-based crossbow. The Needleshot, capable of firing through enemies and pinning their parts to walls, along with 3 firing types.
-Flame Needles: A needle type that functions like a fireable incid grenade.
-Ink Needles: Needle type that functions like a fireable ink grenade.
-Shock Needles: Needle type that functions like a fireable Shock grenade.
I know it sounds like a grenade launcher, but I think the crossbow/Needle Dynamic makes a more interesting weapon than a lobbed weapon like the Booshka.
