Sawn-offs are listed as pistols, not shotguns.
« on: April 07, 2020, 07:07:12 pm »
Under the buy/sell list, if you filter under pistols, the sawn-off is there, but when listed as shotguns it isn't.

P.s.: if you research the sawn-off before you research the double barrel, you can't buy DB ammo.

P.p.s.: Couldn't you add, instead of a "shot" attack, the "special attack" for the Kukri?

Because it's not a shotgun. :P

It's a bug, sorry. Fixed.

Do you mean changing the string? Or something else?

But...
It uses shotgun ammo and works like a shotgun...

No.
Give it that button at the top, like the track dog ability, and maybe change how it works so it target what is in front of the soldier?

Like a melee weapon's slash?

Or a sort of auto-shot, like the whirlwind on the x-piratez barbaric sword?

 Yes, But for all the special abilities of the weapons, this including the chainsaw's one and the pickaxe's one.
 Also, the chainsaw doesn't seem to hit on diagonals and wasn't able to hit once one of those large hollow upright logs.

It's using buckshot ammo and works like any goddamn firearm.

No I can't, this is not a weapon attribute, it's an armour or soldier type attribute.

But ain't saw-offs a double barrel with it's barrel cut in half or less?

No I can't, this is not a weapon attribute, it's an armour or soldier type attribute.

Oh.
But what about the blaster launcher? It has the "launch" button.

Yes, so it's no longer a shotgun.

Indeed, but as far as I understand the engine, it's a special case (hardcoded). If I'm wrong, please correct me.

I digress, but ok.

I have no idea, so can't say about it.
