Powerup Ideas

By creating a topic, make sure its:

  • Easily readable

  • Follows ToS and Rules within CCDiscussion

  • A useful discussion that is debateable

Here is the format I got for powerups that you guys should make.

(powerup name)
(Defensive, offensive, or supportive?)
(What it does)
(How it affects each tier)

[example below]
Wrench
Supportive
Repairs vehicles to full health when collected but not when used.
Tiers 1 and 2 are put back to full health but Tier 3 heals 25% back.

Here is another I have

Automatic Shotgun
Defensive
Shoots at any vehicles that may be attacking the shooter with a barrage of birdshot for 15 seconds
Tier 1 puts it on the hood, Tier 2 puts it on the back, Tier 3 puts it on the roof or next to the cannon.

And finally:
The Flashlight
Depends on use
For 13 seconds, high beams are blinked on and off at a rate that won’t cause seizures. Going into the light covers the screen in a heavy filter.
Works with the headlights of all tiers

So basically it respawns your car without respawning your car

Well yes but actually no.

In some competitive games with health mechanics, some of them will have a healthkit around each corner, sometimes next to ammo boxes.

Examples include Quake and TF2.

What I think the healthkit would do is to reward people for knowing when to stop attacking and heal up. It also may be a fun idea when a dragster is missing one of its wheels and other cars must chase it down before it gets a healthkit and returns to full health.
