Expand the primitive part of rust#573

Adding more various, primitive weapons would be beneficial to rust and solo players.

Like a musket to help with range

Yeah like sling shots that can slow down players so they are forced to engage in a melee fight

ye, something that can shoot down long range, a bit like the blunderbuss in fortnite or have handmade slugs to be shot through a eoka

literally stuffing gunpowder and the closest rock nearby into the eoka

Okay, but people are still going to skip over the primitive stage at the same rate, why run around with a bow when you could have a revolver? or a crossbow?

that could be fixed with a sort of primitive plus type of version like ark

Right now, I don’t think adding more diverse primitive weapons would make people use them. There are already a lot of rather primitive weapons UNUSED. First, you have to make room for these kind of weapons. Why should you craft a stone spear or some of that great diversity of swords and such, if you don’t go through that kind of progress slowly. it’s from bow to firearms right away. You would need to stretch that progression in order to make room. If that is made, you can add more divers options, but until then, that work would be for nothing.

There could be more primitive guns. These would be muzzleloaders, like a blunderbuss, a muzzleloading, three barrel pistol and a musket that could be default blueprints. I would make them require a workbench lvl 1 and a pipe each to craft.

@Vincie if you have a workbench and pipes, why not craft a revolver?

Because that would require a bp which isn’t guaranteed.

Adding more items into the pool makes items such rope, ladders, or garage door even harder to get, so some % would’ve to be revised. RP items should be default blueprint and be removed from barrels as looting gets boring. However the idea is not bad. Bow is fun and more challenging than guns which happen way too early after a wipe. I’m glad that advanced transport such as minicopters and soon boats require scrap from a monument.

Absolutely. Primatives should be able to compete given enough effort. Some of the suggestions in this thread that i love (not exact wording):

Darthpanethegreat: “Like a musket to help with range”

Gavin Graf: “Yeah life sling shots that can slow down players so they are forced into a melee fight”

Dennis Smulders: “catapult as a seige/raid weapon/deployable”

There was a game they were working on called Ruin. Would be the perfect solution to have a primitive Rust gameplay.
