    Proposal
    Implement a "zapper prop" which temporarily paralyzes, and has a 50% chance of doing 50 damage!

    (1) The Zapper will be a prop, with a "Do Not Touch" button on the back, when having the button and hitting an enemy, it will "zap" the player touched. When active, "lightening" will spew from the electric part. Also, should it travel up metal props and shock players on them that it touched?

    Sounds like an ok idea. It would be quite funny to see someone get zapped but I don't think it would work very well. If the prop it was on was destroyed then it would fall off and become useless. But anyway its an ok idea at best.

    Rogers, you madman. You actually did it.

    Now, on to a more serious note, I believe that this prop's usefulness is situational at best. If it isn't a beer case boat then any person would just back up from the zapper to avoid being hit.

    Having a 'Zapper' would also discourage people form making small, annoying boats.

    Zapping them could make them go into a ragdoll mode similar to how I've seen Taser weps do before. They could fall into the water during that time if their boat is to small. Price needs to be high tho imo.

    I personally don't like the idea of being stunned. Especially if you can't combat it in some way. This is purely a biased opinion but I still wanted to give it.

    I still think conceptually its a good idea. Just would be very upset every time I were to get stunned, especially if it happened a bunch of times in the same round.

    Edit: The reason I'm so biased is because I already deal with extremely unstable internet and this would only add to the frustration of disconnections mid round.

    It wouldn't be a weapon, but a prop, spawned in similar to the boat motor.
