Hey guys, is there any chance that we could get a preview of the weapons that have been added? If there’s a devlog that outlines them already then I haven’t seen it, I’ve only seen a few in a video preview. There are a few types of weapons that I’d hope to see added, if they haven’t been already. Pikes, for instance, could be pretty cool. I imagine it as a weaker version of the billhook, but with the spearwall ability instead of the hooking ability. I don’t know how you’re planning on working out equipment costs, or if you’re planning on having different damage types, but the addition of slings could be a cool way to have a very cheap ranged weapon that deals blunt damage instead of piercing damage.

I’m also wondering if there’s any chance of seeing dual-wielding in later builds. I could definitely see some advantages to holding two-one handed weapons in battle, given the game’s equipment based ability system. It might come with some penalties to accuracy and/or damage that could be mitigated with the perk system.

Then again I might be odd for wanting to send a squad of bare-chested berserkers charging headlong into a horde of zombies.
