Question of the Week: If you could add any weapon in what would you add?

One of the great things about video games is being able to hold and use weapons that you otherwise would never be able to experience. I can’t say I’ve ever had the pleasure of swinging around a giant warhammer, but being able to do it in Conan Exiles feels pretty damn neat.

So you got your daggers, swords, axes, bows, and more to pick and choose from whether that’s for utility or looks. But if you could add one more weapon type to the game, what would you add?

No, not “a gun”.

  • Crossbow :heavy_plus_sign: :bow_and_arrow:
  • Bear trap :teddy_bear: :bomb:
  • Slingshot (loaded with stones)

Generally I would add many pitfalls at all

  • Trapdoor over the lava :hotsprings:
  • Arrows fired from the gaps in the wall
  • Rocks falling from the ceiling

Instead of arming the guards in my base, I would hide traps, wait and collect equipment from dead wretches.


PS: If it were possible to throw bears traps at the opponent. :heart_eyes: I would throw them like that. :raised_hand_with_fingers_splayed: :crazy_face: :call_me_hand:
PS 2: Surrounding is my tactical weapon. :male_detective:

The naginata is visually in the Yamatai DLC but uses the spear animation set.

Hand crossbow, preferably like the ones used in the film “First Knight”, but pistol grip ones work for me.

This way, I can use a torch or shield with the hand crossbow and hit targets from a distance.

  • Any kind of flail, shorter and two-handed. I could imagine there’d be room for many cool designs.
    flail

  • Something exotic like a Kusarigama

  • Some alternatives to truncheons to incapacitate thralls: weighted chains, bolas etc. - perfect when on horseback while hunting thralls!

Hasta. I’m not biased I swear.

I think I’ll just let my weapons wishlist from a couple years back do the answering for me here.

(But if I had to pick just one I’d say the Han jian.)

Cestus! Used with punching animations, so nothing like daggers.

Offhand knife. Act as the opposite of other offhand weapons such as throwing axes.
Instead of taking away, it adds bleed to non-bleedig weapons.
So with a mace or sword, the last strike adds a bleed effect.

So we could punch tougher enemies to death not just deers.

A proper combo set of light and heavy attacks for the 2 handed ax. I built them when they were introduced, and placed in a box after using them for about an hour. They need so much work.

I think I’d have to vote for some sort of polearms, too. Even though they were conspicuously absent in Howard’s Conan stories, halberds, pollaxes, glaives, and all sorts of European mishmashes of scythe blades, hammers, axe heads, hooks, spikes and coffee machines attached on top of a long stick were popular weapons in historical times due to their ability to actually hurt people wearing armor. But Howard was no expert in medieval combat, so in his stories, people cut through mail and hack through plate with swords.

Of course, swords are a lot cooler than bill-fauchard-glaive-guisarme-voulges. Easier to write, too.

Yeeeeeeeeeees.

Yay to the slingshot!
I can imagine that legendary slingshot that can knock down thralls in one shot. Much cooler than blunted arrows!!

Also a flail. That thing is brutal and would bring new possibilities for combo sequences. Probably hard to animate though…
