Throw able Spear

Recommended Posts

The spear is a extremely well crafted weapon, but there is one problem that confused me: you can't throw it. In the next update, 3 days, if you can please squeeze the idea in if you guys like it.

Yup. You may be surprised, but this suggestion fits under one of several made under the category "Ranged Weapons". I don't think the Devs plans to allow players to throw spears, as this would require balance testing. Right now the player doesn't have any ranged weapons, what happens if they craft a dozen spears and start auto-quip/throwing them at enemies... would it be overpowered since no enemy has a ranged attack? Would it make hunting rabbits/birds too easy? There are lots of questions that need to be answered first.

However, feel free to make some suggestions on how you think this would work and how it could be balanced. :)

Maybe it could be balanced if there was a charge meter for when you throw the spear, how long you hold down the mouse button to throw it will determine the distance it is thrown towards the target (or past the target). This would mean you would have to time it quite accurately to get the right distance on the spear to hit a little rabbit or bird.

And when you use this weapon against enemies, throwing the spear could be quite risky, because it would leave you without a weapon until you pick it up again.

The spear could also have a good chance of breaking when you throw it. Or use up a lot of durability.

That could work. Maybe 2-3 times as much durability is lost in comparison to when you simply stab with it.
