It would be very good idea, the game will focus rust a little more in the initial stage of the game (do not start the game and you have a shotgun), the idea would basically have an initial stage with more medieval weapons such as shields, swords, flaming arrows, spears, throwing spears, rifles through gunpowder, gunpowder cannons, bolt-action rifles (as you’re doing) and ending with the weapons that we all know, m4, mp5, 9mm, … They cost a little more to reach that level of fire and give options to players who prefer to go melee, can choose it.
I think rust is a fantastic game and we can all get to create something unprecedented, so in my opinion, shotguns with wooden barricades is not very good (hahahaha: D), just to have a shotgun or m4 means being the strongest of the server. So here too we enter into armor theme, prioritize strength or agility, for example a person with a Roman shield (nearly full-length) and light armor and a player with heavy armor and shotgun.
I would also like to congratulate the team of developers and users the idea of new barricades and doors (Roman style), which indicates that we come closer to the Roman style and I like that …
A greeting and I hope you like this idea, it is something very basic but I think it could deepen and think more to improve and give better esperiencia players of this community!
PS: If someone already commented forgive the idea was not my intention! Thank you! I if is the wrong forum, sorry!
