Gun specific kill messages - ideas needed.
#1
Hiho,

As you might have noticed, the "gibs" now have their specific messages, to make them more distinguishable. So I thought, why not have gun-specific messages for all types of death, so you can easily see what killed you? Here's what I came up with, but you might have some better ideas. They are all in the format "you got ***** by ...."

AR: shredded
SMG: sprayed
SG: peppered / splattered
Sniper: punctured / headshot
Pistol: busted
Carbine: picked off
Knife: slashed
Nade: gibbed

Thoughts? Ideas?
#2
Knife: sliced and cubed
#3
shotgun: turned into a mural
#4
knife - carved / cubed

I think this is a jolly good idea.

I suggest: (changes in red)
-AR: shredded
-SMG: sprayed
-SG: peppered / splattered
-Sniper: sniped / headshot (instead of "headshotted")
-Pistol: busted or pistol whipped
-Carbine: picked off
-Knife: slashed or knifed
-Nade: gibbed

Edit: I think these should only apply to the console, and to your death messages. I feel like you'd get tired of seeing the same specific message for each kill you'd get, I'd rather see just "fragged" aside from the gib specific ones like "gibbed," "headshot" and "splattered"

Shotgun: blasted for normal frag / splattered for the gib effect

"You got headshot by...?" I don't think so.
#14
lol


"You got pwned by ..." sounds better than headshotted

"You got headshot by...?" I don't think so.

The word "shot" is already past tense, so saying "headshotted" is technically like saying "you got shotted by ____." It just doesn't sound right to me.

Although since headshot is just a slang term, I suppose it's usually known as a noun and only a noun. In that case "headshotted" would be more proper. So I don't know, this is just my inner grammar nazi being too critical.

Before you all get into an argument about "headshot" vs "headshotted", it's already been changed.


The messages no longer say "got" but "were", example:

you were fragged by %s
you were headshot by %s

.. and so on, so forth.


(Actually, I'm kinda tempted to change it to "you were shot in the head by %s" as an ode to shihad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLAesZDLDKY )

I personally like Jack's "perforated" for the SMG, and Wolf's "blasted" for the shotgun.
#19
Maybe you could include a setting which allows people to choose from a range of kill messages.
#20
How bout ::

Shotgun - You got dropped like it's hot

or...

Not change anything and make 1.1.0.3 more like 1.1 i.e. not as fruity. :D. 1.1 is better.

You'd better start that ball rolling by quitting then. :)
#22
I like Ruthless's idea.
#23
AR: shreddered
SMG: fragged
SG: peppered / splattered
Sniper: shot / headshot
Pistol: busted
Carbine: eliminated
Knife: hashed
Nade: gibbed

maybe we could hide some nice eastereggs here too? :P <- forget that, wouldnt be eastereggs anymore ;)
#24
IMO "sliced" who be great for the knife.
#25
or hashed
#26
hashed makes me think about smashed potatoes for some reason O_o
#27
Makes me think of encryption.
#28
Let the user decide of course!
a simple var in the settings for each weapon and everyone is happy \o/

you want "fragged" only? sure :)
you want a 200B message? sure :) (urban terror like)


#29
Hashed makes me think about hash browns.
#30
i think it should be
knife-pwned
