We're back again!

After a minor update to the game by Seibertron, the staff asked you for your ideas and suggestions for new weapons for the game.

You gave us suggestions by the hundreds.

After a very busy few weeks picking our favorite ones, arguing about them a bit, abandoning the whole list and starting over and arguing some more, we are finally able to announce the staff top 10, here's Burn with the details...

Burn wrote: So after going through all your submissions, the staff have sat down and come up with a list of 10 potentially new weapons that we'll be introducing into the game.

But to do that, we're turning things back over to you guys to vote on which one you'd like to see first.

So get voting as you only have two weeks to vote!


The list is:
Cosmic Rust Cannon
Cyber Potato Cannon
Quad Beam Cannon
Hellfire Shotgun
Magnus Hammer
Distortion Field
Shark Launcher
Eldrich Energy
Laser Burst
Restraining Order


This is the best of the players suggestions that were not already pencilled in for the game. There will more updates, more weapons (a small percentage of which many will have already seen) and more toys to play with over the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned to the HMW general discussion forums for more information, if you have any questions about the game or just want to brag about killing your foes. :twisted:

The vote for the winner is here, be sure to have your say in which weapons are added into the Heavy Metal Wars!

Cyber Potato Launcher? Do I launch murderous AI Potatos at people where the AI's dry, sarcastic, twisted humor destroys my opponents?

Count me in!

Looks good guys!

Heh, heh...Eldrich Farm remembers!

Sorry, that barely even counts as a pun.

Sorry I missed suggestion time. After that TFTM script was released in 2010, I was certain someone would suggest Laser-Chainsaw.

Distortion Field sounds great to me. Sounds very Transformish (Mindwipe/Soundwave) as well a small jab at outside world products (Fruit users will understand this very well)

'Cosmic Rust Cannon' sounds good and brings back memories of the classic cartoon... but then we'd just have someone begging for 'Corrostop Coating' as a new armour after they get theirs handed to them a few times by people using the CRC.

I'm going to throw my vote in for the 'Hellfire Shotgun', though... we need some high-level shotguns in the game.

Cosmic Rust all the way. Almost voted for laser burst out of pity, though. I feel kinda sorry for it.

Eh... Saints Row the 3rd has a better option on that. Fire chum and lure out street sharks.

I haven't paid for the DLC for it, but come on, Street Sharks were awesome. How could that not be a win? I wonder if Gangsters in Space will have Biker Mice from Mars...
