Random Weapon Choices?

when the weapon selection screen comes up, there should be a button that picks a random primary and secondary weapon for you. :)

yea sounds good, but even better, a game mode option (like advanced) that chooses every players weapon randomly.

I am Mancer and I approve of this.

I'm not Mancer, but I also approve of this. In fact, if I was bored and knew how to program, I'd write a program to choose a random primary for me now.

I reject this suggestion and I am not starting any squabbles. If there was a random choice, then it can be glitchy too. You can still get the weapons even though they're disallowed in the game (umchecked).

So get it to choose weapons that are only checked. And make it an 'option' (it's own checkbox, so you play either 'force random weapons' or 'do not force random weapons' (latter, press '-' for random weapons)).

This could be very easy. It could be a mode, like advanced, where you don't get to choose your weapons. You are stuck with your default primary, and the server randomly chooses a primary for you out of the possibilities offered by the server. No choosing from a menu ingame.

I spit on your suggestion. ITS STUPID!! YTF would you want it to pick your weapon?

this'd be interesting. Good mode of play to help people become better at a variety of weapons.

I think it's a pretty good idea.

Wow, this is like the ultimate anti-1-hit-kill-users machine. I try to vary my weapon choices, so I kinda like this. Plus, the sweet feeling of forcing a barrettard to use deagles is awesome. Yeah, I think it'd be a great idea for an additional mode changer, like Advance. It shouldn't choose a random secondary, just primary.

I really like this idea, it would and should generally improve peoples multi-skills. It's a problem these days where newbies start with the barret and can't kill with anything else so they stay on barret, creating more barretards. On the other hand, I enjoy using a variety of weapons too.

that will not at all help with the varietiy of weapons because they dont HAVE to use it at all, they just start barreting and it doesn't matter. i had a better idea :P) (for those who dont no that is a fat person with a p for a mouth :P)

I thought there was already a little program that chose random primaries for you?

This would fit my style of play perfectly, I demand that this be added. A random mode would be nice, too.

That's easily solved by a single line of code.
