    I know I only just joined the forums today, but I have been on the server for a while and have had a few ideas. One of the most well fleshed out ideas I currently have is for an extremely high damage, extremely low ammo Gauss Sniper rifle. (workshop link at bottom) Door boats, no collide cabinet boats, and the very massive, 4 cabinet 4 money bad 3-5 logs ships are all very hard to deal with and A Gauss rifle would help manage these boats. For general use, a 1-2 shot insta-kill Gauss rifle would still be very good.

    The current concept is a 1 shot 700 damage Gauss rifle, making it possible to kill any prop (I think) in one shot. If it is possible without minimal work, another idea is a player has 2 shots if they are playing solo, and 1 shot if they are in a team, so that it would not be abused. However, 1 shot for everyone is very manageable.

    For price, I feel bazooka cost, $35,000, or even higher, $40,000 would be nice, since it is so high damage, even in one shot. $30,000, making it the most expensive sniper may also be nice.

    Thank you for any and all opinions, and feel free to tell me what you think should be changed in the idea or any ideas i have in the future

    I like the idea, but the gun might be over powered, but I like the idea of adding new guns.

    If every player only has 1 bullet it might help balance that out though, is my current thought.

    IMO, adding a weapon that could be used once or twice and taking up a slot in the hotkeys (probably the 4th) is unfavourable. Maybe we should add a feature which makes weapons disappear from your inventory when they run out of ammo (for the round).
    I could see this idea being the secondary fire for the pulse rife, the energy pellet. It would vaporize the prop(s) when hit. It would be a separate item in the weapon shop, probably a permanent attachment for a high cost, with one or two pellets per round. I would tone the damage down to around 150-300 damage as many props don't go past 300 HP.

    I think that might be a better idea Dr. Pit, but I feel a one hit kill on a prop weapon would be a nice feature. I only feel a sniper would have the best range, but your idea is very nice too.
