What good does a paintball gun really do against zombies?
While at AGDC, Cody "Micajah" Bye had an extensive conversation with Fallen Earth's lead designer, Lee Hammock, concerning the many features going into his upcoming post-apocalyptic MMORPG. In this extensive interview, Cody and Lee talk about combat, PvP, death, weapons, towns, and much much more! If you're at all interested in this upcoming MMOG, make sure you check out this interview!
"Your first weapon is a pipe, while your second weapon will probably be a piece of rebar, two-by-four, or a wine bottle opener," Hammock said. "Your starting guns will be paintball guns and crossbows. Everything starts out very basic. By the middle portion of the game you'll have baseball bats, pool cues, hockey sticks with sawblades attached to them, barbells with all the weights at one end, that sort of thing. Eventually you'll get to rifles, fully automatic weapons, pistols, revolvers, or swords. My favorite is the spiked baseball bat with razor wire wrapped around one end. That's the winner right there."
