What weapons should I add to my brawler game?

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for all kinds of weapon ideas for my beat'em up game. I've been adding community ideas for new items and outfits since the beginning of the development and collected a decent set already, but would love to see it growing.

Here's what I've got already:



Anything goes, since I like adding all kinds of silly content to my games and I want to have as many weapons/outfits as possible. The only requirement is for item to be somewhat recognizable without getting too detailed. The melee weapons are easier to add, since they don't have much to balance (all have the same DPS at the moment), ranged take a bit more time, since they have different projectiles, knockback and fire rate.

So, what should the next weapon be?

Thank you in advance!

You have a vast collection already! Kudos to you! A silly melee weapon could be a giant foam finger (as seen in stadiums during sporting events with large gatherings) and I notice you don't have the weapon of choice of one "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan - no, not a hacksaw - a 2x4! You can also add a pipe (you have the wrench). Hmm, a tuning fork..scissors...a pickle...

Gotta have a butcher knife or meat cleaver to go with the bacon theme.

Thank you so much for great ideas! I already added a few items you suggested or inspired (plank with face is a reference to Ed, Edd n Eddy show). They will be added to the next update.

Foam finger is probably my favorite now!
