Welcome to Librarium Online!
ok people, for those of you who want a sniper type weapon, or a new suit weapon, or something in that regard, i have the weapon for yous.
not long ago i posed that the coil gun would be ideal for a new weapon, similer to the railgun, but entirely differnet design.
well i remeber now that there is another new weapon that the military has been working on for quite a few years now, ETC (Electro Thermal Chemical) guns..... basically they opperate on the same principle that a chemical reaction can be transformed into kinetic energy which is what out regular guns do, but this is different, due to the fact that the chemical mix used is far more powerful then conventional mixes.. the chemical mix is ignited by an electric current, and not by physical force hitting a primer.
i believe this to be ideal for tau weapons, as the only moving parts in the gun is the projectile and loading system.
however i cant think of any stats that are suitable for it. :rolleyes:
well i hope that not only will this gun be thought about, but i would really like this thread to be dedicated to new weapons for the tau, i mean even something utterly rediculous that has no scientific background would be good. as long as it has a practical use for it.
this is all about ideas. who cares whether it can be used in the game or not. ideas people, ideas are created from imagination, imagination is created from dreams. so go and get some sleep. :tongue:
P.S. yes i know this topic has been around. and there is a thread also, somewhere i think. but anyone who is going to post a reply telling me that and demanding that i bring them threads back up instead of starting a new one, is a simple minded fool. IMHO. emphasis on the my opinion part.
this is about new ideas, not old ones.
I just love the prospect of more bad science, bad spelling and being told I am a simple minded fool. I do not think this warrents a new thread myself.

Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
I think they might have a sniper, for fluff reasons anyway. Many people think Tau=range. Today, range=sniper rifle. But the Tau aren't too long ranged.

Ok, I have a good idea for the stats.
AP - NO, Str - NO, Range - NO, Heavy No, Tau are not getting Snipers. While the idea makes sense, it would be ridiculous for Tau to have the Rail Rifle, then another Sniper Rifle. The Rail Rifle is Tau's version of a Sniper Rifle and that's as close as we're going to get.

2 things i think the tau need 1st. They need a pistol type weapon, i mean is it me or is tau the only race missing one. I know you guys might say that tau are all about long ranged shooting and dont want to get close, but every soldier knows its gonna happen sooner or later so well maybe a 'ui should have the option of using a literal bonding knife (not just a picture) and hold a (lets call it a Pulse Pistol) in the other hand.

And my second idea is a flame thrower that can be used in the fire warrior squad. The only thing i base this idea on is the FIRE in fire warrior, I want FLAMES!!!

this is not for new units or anything, its for new weapons, plasma mortars are another one i can think of..
just thought id clear that up, so for future reference.. please keep this about new weapons. id rather that noone posted and this went to the bottom of the list then have arguments in it about why we do or dont need it..
yeh, so really what i hoped to achieve was basically, take your knowlege of scientific advances in out modern world, and apply them to tau.
but as i said im ahppy for this to goto the bottom of the list. probably belongs there
Just use Rail Rifles and stop moaning. Str 6 AP 3 Range 36" Heavy1 is good enough for me as a sniper rifle.

After the Fire Warrior game came out, I wanted to be able to give a burst cannon to a Fire Warrior in place of say a flamer cause they are both assault so it would be kind of a cool upgrade to be given to one guy in the squad. oh and I know you can't give them a flamer I was saying if they were going to get an upgrade like that.
